List Rules Vote for your favorite Michael Jackson songs, not just singles and hits.

For all the MJ lovers, here's an extensive list of the best Michael Jackson songs, ranked by fans like you. The King of Pop gifted the world many classics before his sad death in 2009, but which is the best? Once a member of the Jackson 5 where he sung with his family, Michael's solo career eventually blossomed and earned him the title of the greatest pop artist to ever live. "Billie Jean," "Thriller" and "Bad" are all included on this list, but true fans know there are other great songs in his back catalogue as well. 

Music videos are included next to each song name, so if you haven't heard it you can listen to it right here on this page. Is one of your favorite Michael Jackson songs missing from this poll? Add it to the list so it has a chance to rise to the top. If the order of this list bothers you, then stick it to the man by creating your own version and re-ranking it. Simply click the "Rerank List" button and you can put the songs in whatever order you like.
