    By the way, I know every line, every breath, hiccups, hees, whoos, etc. in every MJ song starting around Destiny era, so I think I am qualified to say that I know most of his songs and listen to them.

    I still don't like ITFIL. Maybe a solo version would make things better. Patti Austin makes it so much worse..
    I didn't question your fandom. I just said tastes are subjective. I think that Patti Austin's voice melt well with MJ's in that song.

    Michael wasn't perfect, but he was a perfectionist. He touched a bit of everything regarding music. Some people prefer his Motown era, some Off The Wall, some Thriller and so on.

    As much as it is difficult to agree on which song is the worst it is difficult to agree on which song is the best due to the fact that his songs are difficult to compare because of different styles.

    I just L.O.V.E. most of Michael's songs. The Girl Is Mine is really the only song of his that I never really cared much for it.

    Personally, I thinks it's incredibly naiive to say that all of Michael's songs are perfect and brilliant.

    What I sometimes feel is that a lot of fans forget that Michael was just a musician, just like Madonna, Elvis, Prince etc... he wasn't perfect.

    I'm a huge Prince fan, but yet it's still okay to say that some of his songs, hell even whole albums, are terribly bad.

    As fantastic as 98% of Michael's catalogue is, there will always be the 2% that just isn't as strong, be it commercially or down to its listenability.

    Just my opinion, and of course people who think Michael's music is flawless are entitled to think so...I'm just saying my piece.

    As I said, Michael wasn't perfect, but he was a perfectionist. He knew music and he knew what he was doing. We're the ones who aren't as qualified as MJ himself to understand it.

    I'll give you a concrete example. When I saw Smooth Criminal video for the first time I loved it, but I had no clue why the dancers and himself all of sudden stopped dancing and started to hum, sigh and scream. Later on when I saw MJ giving the directions behind the scenes and the meaning of it, it became clear.

    Our analysis is poor compared to MJ's expression through the maze of music.

    He was a genius and it is not a question for me.
    Yes, I can say I don't like this song or that one, but this is only my opinion.
    Music is so subjective and I think there is not an objective benchmark.

    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. "

    Well that kind of answer is what you get when such subjective questions are asked.

    It's like no matter what songs one may consider "bad" or "weak, MJ's vocals makes it all worthwhile. IMO.
