    Default Poll: Michael Jackson's Greatest Album Opener

    So as you can see from the options, MJ has a great ear for the exhilarating, pulsating, unrelenting and energy-infused first track cuts. But which one defines the album, it's era and ultimately MJ's artistry the best? Please expand on what it is about song itself, it's lyrics, arrangement, production that you like.

    Why? Please elaborate, I want to know what about your selection makes it stand out from the rest of album, it's era and ultimately how it reflects MJ's artistry.

    Don't Stop Til You Get Enough because of the build up

    And BAD because that just hits you full force without pulling any punches

    They are better songs in my opinion. Hard to explain why. I just like listen them more.

    Importance?Well I guess the fact it was MJ's first main solo project and that single was a worldwide hit which helped send him onto super stardom and another step towards being the music icon that he became.

    For me, Jam. Why? It's explosive entry sets up the rest of the album I think. It signifies the beginning of a new era of musical style for Michael and the peak of his artistry.

    Don't Stop Til You Get Enough, if this single was released in 2015 instead of 1979, it would be even more successful considering how R&B music has declined over time, and how fast it has.....best anticipation leading up to a song intro ever recorded....and the real dela creme was the fact when Michael performed this song during the Triumph Tour, it was all live vocals......
