    To be fair, Is It Scary doesn't exactly close the album. It does for most listeners, though, lol. Threatened gets my vote!

    Smooth criminal should be listed too. It's definitely dangerous for me.

    This! When I was a kid I just had the tape so my Bad album ended with Smooth Criminal!

    Dangerous has to be the one for me though. Just perfect.

    Yeah, Smooth Criminal is the real last track on Bad. Leave Me Alone was a bonus track and wasn't it only added AFTER the album had already been released?

    Yeah pretty much only on the CD version. I think the only non CD version Leave Me Alone is on is the BAD25 vinyl

    It is rather unusual for two consecutive tracks to close in an (almost) identical way. This happens with the first two songs from the ‘Dangerous’ album (‘Jam’, 'Why you wanna Trip on me’).

    I suppose MJ wanted to express emphatically his anger/despair.

    It's a very difficult choice. I was torn between TLIML, LMA, Dangerous, Is It Scary and Threatened. LOL. At the end I voted for Threatened.

    Yeah, I had the cassette tape as well and it ended with Smooth Criminal. I think I only learnt about LMA when it was released as a single.

    I bought the vinyl in '87 and it has Leave Me Alone at the end...

    I immediately thought of Smile, but oh, how I love Dangerous, LIML, and Threatened. I can never choose a favorite.


    I once had a thousand desires, but in my one desire to know you, all else melted away.

    Surprised that Leave Me Alone has so few votes. I think it's absolutely brilliant, especially the vocal harmony on the chorus.
