    Question Is Earth Song Michael's MOST powerful song?

    I think it might be.
    Whenever I listen to it I feel like I need to hold onto some trees not to be blown away.

    IMO it's also the best example that an artist/entertainer doesn't have to be a traditional belter to deliver extremely powerful, knock your socks off, snatch your edges AND your wig vocals.

    Just listen to this.

    For me Michael's most powerful song would be Man In The Mirror but Earth Song is a close second.

    I'd have to agree with Earth Song. Not just his vocal alone but the emotion he throws out.
    “In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.”
    -MJ

    Earth Song is incredible. The lyrics, the feeling and those VOCALS!!! Nobody other than Michael could deliver vocals with such power and raw emotion.

    I'll say at the very least one of the most under rated songs that was released with a supporting video for it... Many many people in the U.S. never even are aware of the song.

    I think all songs mentioned in this thread are powerful .
    We`ve had enough is a very powerful song too.

    "How much did I really know about life on earth? What responsibility did I feel for creatures outside my little space?
    How could I lead my life so that every cell of living matter was also benefited?" Michael Jackson

    IKR!
    Michael was truly one of a kind.
    His voice was so versatile.
    It's like I said before, Michael may not have been a traditional belter, but I'll be damned if he didn't serve the most powerful emotional vocals I've ever heard.
    Michael didn't play around with that 4 octave vocal range.

    I'm very different from a lot of people regarding animal rights, so while "Earth Song" is definitely powerful, I don't know if I'd place it at the top. My basic stance is that we should care for both animals and the planet, but people ultimately come first. The mere fact we even discuss how we should treat animals, is evidence that we're above them. I'm reasonably sure wild animals don't have a discussion group, about how to deal with "those pesky humans".

    Oh....well I wasn't just taking about the song's message.
    I was talking about the song in its entirety

    For the video and the sheer power of Michael's vocals alone - probably. But then I listen to Man in the Mirror, and Heal the World and will think the same thing. It had the biggest and most epic video for these type of "Conscience songs", but it was the latest too. It is hard to say yes, But If I look at the other "Conscience songs" - dramatic and thoughtful subject matter, pleading and loud vocals and just sheer power we have.
    .
    Thriller - Human nature (Not really environment or war like the other songs - but MJ is questioning why we are that way)
    Bad - Man in the mirror (This song covers everything and has the epic video) to me this may be the most powerful song and had MJ had the 1995 video technology back then, he may have had a just as epic video.
    Dangerous - This has besides Heal the World, which is powerful, but a bit sugary for my liking with the kiddie choir being trundled out, but the message is nice. I think Will you be there has the most power, yes it's about love and loyalty rather than War, Poverty, Injustice and the Environment in these songs, this song is pure power.
    History - Has this song, but also the powerful TDCAU with both of its epic videos and of course the message in the song. So on later reflection probably not. Earth Song is powerful, but it is mainly the video that grabs you.

    So in all, I would say Earth song would be the 3rd most powerful behind Man in the Mirror, Will You be there and probably equal with TDCAU. That is not to detract from it, it is still an incredible song and the video is still mind blowing now.
