    Question If you had to make someone a fan with ONE song, what song would it be?

    If you had the chance to turn someone that hasn't heard an MJ song before ever in their life into an MJ fan by playing them ONE song, what would that song be?

    And yes, I did kind of borrow this idea from that tweet from MJ's official Twitter account.

    It depends of the general taste of the target. I'd show a different songs to someone with a rock orientation and someone with an r&b orientation, for example.

    I'd go with either Billie Jean or The Way You Make Me Feel. Between those two, you'd have most covered.

    I think you'd have to presume they know all the big '80's stuff, so I'd choose 'Give In To Me'.

    Even though it hit #2 in UK, it's not widely known and the full length version transcends the rock & pop genre so perfectly.

    It's gotta be Who Is It. I remember making an MJ compilation for an old colleague at work a few years back now. They came in to work the next day and said "Wow, Who Is It." It's the best MJ song of all time, no arguements.

    Full length? As in the album version or is there some orgasmic extended version with an extra verse and ad-libs that has somehow eluded me?

    Ha! No the album version I meant.

    Although have you the demo with the alternative ad-libs (but no Slash)?

    It all depends on the person and what type of music I know they like.. Gotta put a little more thought into it! I have used MITM, Give Into Me, Remember The Time, and a few others with distinct sounds that fit the spectra that individuals would listen to.. If they like motivating positive music, mysterious rock type sounds, catchy pop music, etc.. Luckily Mike has music down many alleys!!

    I would choose Stranger In Moscow. I think the song is perfect but not that well known outside MJ circles. I've played that song to a few people over the years and it always moves people and gets their attention.
