Top Ten Michael Jackson Songs

May 02 20:00 2014

A song that Michael Jackson recorded 30 years ago has been released as a part of his new album “Xscape.”

The song “Love Has Never Felt So Good” was recorded in 1983, but has been made more contemporary by John McClain, according to CNN. The track incorporates the early 1980s feel with the disco-soul sound of today.



The song first debuted during the iHeart music awards Thursday night.

On the new album that will be released May 13, there will be eight unheard Michael Jackson songs that were recorded between 1983 and 1999.

Columbia Records, the company that has released Jackson’s music for three decades, is working with McClain to slowly reproduce and release songs from Jackson’s archives.

“New” music from Michael are not always met with enthusiasm by fans or the Jackson family because the authenticity of the vocals are always questioned. This happened with the 2010 album when it was released a year after Jackson’s death. The estate and record company verified that it was Jackson’s voice.

With the news that another song by the King of Pop will be released TheCelebrityCafe.com would like to take a look at the top ten Michael Jackson singles from “Thriller” to “This is It.”

Billie Jean, another song from the Thriller album was a #1 hit for Michael. Admit it, you’re singing it in your head now, aren’t you? It was a catchy tune with easy to remember words. People loved it!

Smooth Criminal was a song that was mostly known for the “lean.” You know what I’m talking about. The King of Pop definitely showed his dance moves in this one. The catchy tune and the dance moves to match made it an easily lovable piece.

Michael Jackson’s Bad was a song with attitude from the King. “I’m Bad” became a saying that didn’t mean you were bad, but it meant you were cool. It was change for pop culture entirely.

Black or White was another game changer for Michael Jackson. It warmed the hearts of many because it severed race lines that have been hard to separate for years and it was about love, no matter what color skin someone had.

Another Michael Jackson favorite was Beat It. Don’t lie, you’re screaming it at the top of your lungs while you’re reading this. It was a catchy, easy to sing along song that captured many and just made the love for Michael grow larger.

A song that shocked many was Dirty Diana. It was a side of Michael many had not yet heard, but he was talking about love (as usual) just not in the way he would normally. He loved her, she hurt him. It was a scorned song.

Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough is still a song by Michael that people hear regularly at work, a theme park, shopping. It’s catchy tune and disco-feel make it a song you could listen to all the time.

The Way You Make Me Feel was practically every couple’s “song” when it came out. It’s light-hearted, easy to sing and can explain feelings for someone so easily.

Another Michael Jackson favorite is Man in the Mirror. It is a popular song, but not necessarily the most popular MJ song ever produced. It was a self-reflection for Michael right in the middle of what seemed to be a mess of a life.
