“Magic is easy if you put your heart into it.”
—MICHAEL JACKSON (1983)

With over a billion records sold worldwide, including 13 Billboard Hot 100 chart-toppers, Michael Jackson is one of the greatest selling musicians who ever lived. A consummate professional and perpetual innovator, he will forever be remembered as the King of Pop. His four-decade discography includes many songs that form the cultural fabric of modern pop music, from the novelty Halloween funk of ‘Thriller’ to the plaintive paranoia of ‘Billie Jean’; from the percussive thump of ‘Smooth Criminal’ to the buttery balladry of ‘You Are Not Alone’. Put simply, Michael Jackson defined the megastar.

In 2003, many of Michael’s chart-toppers (plus one new track and, confusingly, the Invincible deep cut ‘Break of Dawn’) were collected into the Number Ones greatest hits album – and that’s what we’ll be rating. Gagadaily has rated most of MJ’s studio albums over the past couple of years (in @Cello’s fabulous megarates), but I can’t remember the last time we did a Best Of rate like this, spanning over thirty years’ worth of material. I genuinely can’t predict which song will win, and that’s a thriller of a feeling.

We’ll be rating all the songs on the Number Ones compilation. That’s 18 songs from the US edition, plus the two extra ones that are only on the European edition. I know 20 songs sounds daunting, but you probably know most of them already and you can find them all in one place in this handy playlist:

If you know this discography like the back of your (sequin-gloved) hand, feel free to submit your votes whenever you’re ready. Or if you haven’t heard some of these songs for a while, why not listen through the playlist a few times and re-familiarise yourself with this incredible collection of songs? If you've never heard these songs before: a) you're lying, b) what are you waiting for??!, c) you will LOVE them.

Take as long as you need – I’ll close submissions on Friday 15 September and host the ceremony the following day. When you’re ready to vote, the Google form is here: https://forms.gle/8FdqVdLvQz2ZFyDE7. Score each song out of 10, and then at the end you can choose one song to upgrade to 11. Comments on any or all of the songs are completely optional, but it’d be great to hear what you think!

Happy listening, don’t let this flop, and I can’t wait for your votes!

Question :partysick:

When voting, should we consider the song itself or the version they put on the album?

Like, Earth Song itself would probably be one of my top picks but I despise the radio edit.

Good question! I think if you know the original album versions, feel free to rate those. I’d hate for something like Earth Song to get a low placement just because of the atrocious edit :partysick:

Me realising I didn’t add a ‘GGD username’ question to the poll:

If you voted already, could you maybe drop me a quick PM with which song was your 11 and whether you left any comments? Hopefully then I can match everything up. Sorry, thank you!
