I probably would've added "Black or White," his last really big hit, to the list ... but "Billie Jean" is endlessly catchy and always makes you want to move.

What's your favorite Quincy Jones song? would be more accurate.

Sorry, but everything after the Jackson 5 just seemed over the top theatrics. Funny thing is, Michael Jackson could've been an even bigger success if he hadn't turned all weird and creepy. Instead, he's just an admitted pedophile (hey, even if he was never convicted, he himself said that he frequently slept in the same bed with little boys that weren't related to him, and that he'd often just met - and worse, he thought that was ok!) who happens to be able to sing. I hear several of the inmates at Ossining have lovely voices, too - shall we place them on a pedestal as well?

He was a highly-talented contemporary artist of our generation. Many times artists are very tortured souls. I hope his rests in peace.

His own father couldn't care less that he died.

Why should I?
