New Music

Various - Michael Jackson

Like many others, it took him dying for me to dig out his tracks and give them a good going over. It's quite staggering how many tunes there are and how many I know the words of. It even took a while to figure out which I wanted to listen to since there was such a choice. I managed to whittle down the playlist to 26 tracks, including Say Say Say on which he featured. It would be futile listing the highlights since they're all so good, so instead I'm just gonna list them all, in chronological order:

Off The Wall: Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough, Rock with You, She's Out of My Life

Thriller: Wanna Be Startin' Somethin', Girl Is Mine feat Paul McCartney, Thriller, Beat It, Billie Jean, Human Nature

Pipes of Peace: Say Say Say feat Michael Jackson

Bad: Bad, Way You Make Me Feel, Speed Demon, Liberian Girl, Another Part of Me, Man in the Mirror, I Just Can't Stop Loving You, Dirty Diana, Smooth Criminal, Leave Me Alone

Dangerous: In the Closet, Remember the Time, Black or White, Who Is It, Give in to Me

HIStory: Earth Song

Were these songs really all released so long ago? Although Bad supplies the most number of tracks, I'd say that Thriller was my favourite, if only for giving us Billie Jean.

Sound of a Rebel - Outlandish

To be honest this hasn't been getting much play. Unlike with their previous albums Nothing exciting immediately stands out, but I'm sure something will stick.

  1. I've heard so many of his songs again in the past week and it amazes me how well they've aged.

    as for Billie Jean... best bass line ever.
