    A rap starring Vincent Price (to which I still know all the words)? A dance routine imitated by hundreds of inmates? Gotta be "Thriller."

    Stranger in Moscow is probably my favorite followed closely by They Don't Care About Us.

    Re: Favorite Michael Jackson Song?

    In absence of ABC (which was really MJ carrying the group), I'll vote for my second fave Billie Jean...

    Love this video and its parody. Clicking in the video screen worked for me. When I hit play it didn't FWIW.

    Re: Favorite Michael Jackson Song?

    I could've voted for about half of these. I went with Billie Jean because it probably holds up better today than anything else. Ben has always been one of my favorites if for no other reason than the weird movie it's associated with.

    Re: Favorite Michael Jackson Song?

    I went with Off The Wall.

    That album doesn't get near the respect it deserves.

    Off the Wall
    Don't stop ('til you get enough)
    Rock with You
    She's out of my life...

    ... all great songs.

    I remember the first time I heard the album (yes, Im old) on a high quality stereo. It sounded so cool and original.

    Inspite of all his weirdness, Michael could sure churn out some good music.

    You forgot the Kid version to the Bad video, which I enjoy much more than the Weird Al version.

    Re: Favorite Michael Jackson Song?

    Since we're not including Jackson 5 hits, Billie Jean would be #1. The song, the video, and when he busted out the moonwalk at the Motown special.

    Re: Favorite Michael Jackson Song?

    Billie Jean is probably a better legacy song, but Beat It gets my vote. The inclusion of Wesley Snipes in Bad puts it close too.
