Michael Jackson's Top 100 Songs

Michael Jackson

Top 100 Songs

R&B/pop singer/songwriter and dancer born 8/29/1958 in Gary, Indiana. Died 6/25/2009. The 7th of 9 children, he was born into one of history’s most musical families. Achieved fame at 11 years old with his brothers in the Jackson 5 (69-76); the group later became The Jacksons (76-84). Launched a solo career (72-09) while simultaneously working in The Jackson 5.

His 1979 Off the Wall album became only the second in history to score 4 top 10 hits. His 1982 Thriller album, with an estimated 60+ million sales worldwide, became the best-selling album in history; it was the first album to score 7 top 10 hits, fueled in part by breaking down the racial barrier on MTV with some of the most iconic videos of all time. His 1987 Bad album was the 1st to score 5 #1 songs.

Two of his songs (“Billie Jean” and “Beat It”) are featured in the DMDB book The Top 100 Songs of the Rock Era 1954-1999. Thriller is featured in the DMDB book The Top 100 Albums of All Time.

American Music Awards (1974-2022)

American Music Awards:

Pop/Rock Songs of the Year, 1974-2022

The American Music Awards (AMAs) were established in 1973 when ABC lost its contract to air the Grammys. They were created by Dick Clark. The AMAs are determined by public vote. The winners for favorite pop/rock song are listed here. That category existed from 1974-1995, was retired for more than a decade, and then returned in 2016. In the interim, there was also a Single of the Year award from 2013-2015.

Check out other “songs of the year” lists here.

Dave’s Faves: The Grand Library

Dave’s Faves:

The Grand Library

This is it. My personal picks for the “grand” library. I use the term to signify my top 1000 favorite songs. This is still a work in progress, but will eventually be another book in the Dave’s Music Database series.

Recorded Versions Only:

I did apply a few rules. First, all entrants had to be recorded versions of songs. That excluded songs that may be quite well known (“Happy Birthday to You,” “Row Row Row Your Boat”) but for which I do not have a specific recorded version.

Versions of Songs:

Second, only one version of a song has been officially entered into the library, even if the title appears more than once in my top 1000 favorites. That means that even though Tori Amos’ version of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” is one of my top 1000 favorites, only the Nirvana original is listed. The version in the library doesn’t necessarily have to be the original of the song, however. The one in the library is the one which is ranked highest. That means, for example, that Johnny Cash’s take on “Hurt” is listed instead of the original version by Nine Inch Nails.

Two for One

There are also a few occasions where two songs are listed as one entry. For example, Queen’s “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions” are two separate songs but are so consistently played together that they are listed as one entry in this book.

Why Not Ranked?

I decided to list the songs alphabetically by recording acts instead of a ranking of the top 1000. I did this for several reasons. I don’t want readers getting hung up on whether they think a song is ranked too high or too low. I also thought this list flowed better having songs listed by the acts. You can, however, see my top 100 songs here.

Years

Songs are listed by the first year in which they were commercially available. That means a song such as the Eagles’ “Hotel California” will be noted as a 1976 release because that’s when the album came out, even though it wasn’t released as a single until 1977.

My Tastes

Finally, I make no apologies for my specific tastes. No one should apologize for his or her particular likes. Like what you like and do so unashamedly. That means the reader will see a library heavily dominated by music from the 1980s and the classic rock genre. That means there may be way too many Marillion entries for your taste, especially if you’ve never heard of the band. There’s a reason the library has 1000 entrants. There’s bound to be something to meet most tastes.
