    I never cared for YANA...
    I can't really view OTW as a "full album", it's half great songs - half fillers for me (still nice stuff, but not real "MJ greatness"), and strongly prefer Destiny and Triumph to it, partly because of the latter's "rawer" sound. My "dream OTW" would consist of the greatest tracks from these 3 albums.

    Definitely! I always call it my fave country song.

    Random note, I can't be the only one that gets embarrassed by some other MJ fans right? Lol


    There are strange mega fans of anything, and those same 'type' of fans dont know how to separate fandom with normal life..

    Get me?

    People are entitled to their opinion, but it always mind boggled me how so many people say that OTW was Michael's greatest work ever. I love the album, but he greatly improved as an artist and songwriter after that.

    although 'thriller' is my favourite overall, I feel 'off the wall' had a better leading single with 'don't stop..', compared to 'the girl is mine'. outside of that, I only like the singles 'off the wall' and 'rock with you' from that album.

    vocally, I consider 'shake your body' to be a Michael Jackson song. I only hear the brothers when they sing 'down, down, down, down..' that's not enough of a contribution for a group recording for me.

    I don't think the majority of Michael's music outside of the 80s and early 70s was 'pop'

    I've just noticed that 'carousel' and 'careless whisper' by George Michael both sound similar. I think 'carousel' may have been recorded first...

    I really don't like addressing his appearance at all, because it's not important, but he didn't look good after 2000. And if he did, the times were few. That tattooed lipliner was a mess. Sorry.

    I really like the Xscape album.

    His big hits aka 'radio hits'; Smooth Criminal, Beat It, Bad, Thriller (Don't get me wrong these are brilliant songs!), doesn't really do it for me. I appreciate his underrated and less played songs alot more. Give In to Me is a BIG favorite.

    I love the Motownera very much.
    I listen to the most of this songs very often since I discovered them all veeery intensly in the last year cause they get me always very quickly in good moot.
    ( Before I did this I honestly knew maybe 10 til 15 Motownera/The Jacksons songs)

    Skywhriter is my favorite Motowneraalbum

    I love The Jacksons Variety show and all their tv apearences in the 70ies and early 80ies with the beautiful colourful outfits very much.

    I'm a fan but sometimes it gets to me how fellow fans make Michael's image worse.. defending all aspects of Michael's life like hes a flawless God only makes us sound not credible when we defend him of the allegations.

    Seen it alot on YouTube lately.. lol

    I don't think I've ever referred to Michael as 'king', or any other grand title. he's my fave, but I don't worship him.

    I wish he made more international television appearances (performances) during the 'thriller' campaign in '83

    I don't think Michael is the best singer, he's defo in my top 5 for sure, but i think there is better singers out there e.g. Freddie Mercury & George Michael to name a couple.

    I don't see many people doing it, but I do see a lot of people accusing people of it.
