    No, it isn't. It is in my top 5, but not the best.

    No MJ song is the "best", everyone has different tastes. .

    One of his best songs. In any case a Top 10 or even Top 5 song of his, but my personal favourite is Who is it. Some say it's like Billie Jean part 2 and I know what they mean, but I think it's even richer musically and deeper lyrically than Billie Jean.

    I think BJ is def one of his best, but he has so many good ones. Who Is IT is a great one, I love it too, can't believe is is so underrated.

    I remember when it was released ppl would say it had similarities to BJ. What are the similarities? I really never was able to figure it out. Thanks

    As many have said before, I believe it's a classic, and one of his best performances ever. But he has written others that I like better. Like Tricia70 said, WII is amazing.

    Billie Jean was the best song recorded in that era of changing music and sound, however, Michael went on to record even better, IMHO.

    I guess it depends on how you define "best". In my personal opinion, it's not the best, because it's not my favorite. I also think there are songs that are better strictly musically speaking. There are definitely better ones regarding the lyrics.
    But if you define "best" in terms of successful, than it could very well be MJ's best song.

    I think it's up there as one of the "greatest" as the performance from Motown 25 is always the one that people quote as launching Michael in to space...

    And have you noticed that if you request MJ in a club, it's usually Billie Jean that comes!
