Today we remember the one person who has touched many lives through his music, Michael Jackson. I decided to pay tribute to him by making a list of my top 10 favorite Michael Jackson songs. It has been one year since his death and if any of you are like me, you have always listened to his music prior to his death.
I remember the first time I saw the video “Thriller”, I don’t recall being so scared at first; I was into the dancing! Michael Jackson made me enjoy his music more by the way he danced and told a story through his dancing. I think that crazy laugh at the end made me never want to watch the video again. Then, I went to I.S. 61 in Staten Island, a performing arts junior high school, and that is where I learned the infamous “Thriller dance”. After that I made it my business to learn all the dance moves to all of his songs. My favorite to perform still to this day is “Beat it” and “You Rock My World”. We will remember Michael Jackson for his amazing music, and his forever long short films that took us into the mind of a legend. We will always remember the “King of Pop”.
Here goes my top ten Michael Jackson hits with an exception of one song which included his brothers. What is your Michael Jackson playlist?

You really don’t have to think too hard when you make your list of MJ hits. However, you need at least ten more spots if you need to include the Jackson 5!
