    Default The Lean VS The Moonwalk: Which move is the most iconic?

    Both moves are hands down the most iconic and recognized in music history, but which one do you think is the most iconic out of the two?

    The humble King/Emperor of all music and entertainment, AKA The Greatest entertainer of all time, The standard, and Your faves fave.

    Moonwalk, by far. His autobiography wouldnt have sounded as good had it been called "The Lean" ha!

    Out of the two definitely the Moonwalk, although of course when you see The Lean that too is associated with MJ.

    But none of these are why MJ is one of the greatest dancers. It is more in his more complex and more nuanced dance moves.

    The moonwalk. The fact that you do not need any equipment to do it helps.

    A sequel to Moonwalker the film might have been cool tho! The Lean! What would the title to the third "movie like no other" have been called? The Spin? The Toe Stand? The Pelvic Thrust?

    In answer to the OP's question, without question the moonwalk.

    The Robot is not in consideration?

    Definitely, the Moonwalk.

    Im surprised MJ is better known for his robot. The first time i saw him do it during an early performance of Dancing Machine I had to keep keep keep rewinding.

    He had a great robot but that's less of a move that is associated strictly with him.

    I think that's because everybody and their dog was doing it the day after Soul Train-even to this day.

    Snap. For years and years everytime i heard "dancing, dancing, dancing, dun dun dunnn, shes a dancing machine" is used follow it up with "DONT BLAME IT ON THE SUNSHINE". As with most of the other songs in the retrospective!
