    Of course. Almost everyone in the world knows that song. It's also the most popular song on Off The Wall I think. And Rock with You is a classic too.
    I actually do.

    Absolutely. It's as important (if not more important) than some of the other classics. Putting it in context, it introduced a whole new Michael Jackson and redefined who he was and who he would become as a solo adult artist. Hearing it for the first time (before what came) was unbelievable. It was so fresh, so funky, such a groove and so dancable.

    Of course. DSTYGE is the song that introduced Michael Jackson the solo artist. It's one of the most important songs in the history of music, I would say. Not only is it a brilliant dance track but it introduced the arrival as a solo artist of the biggest artist ever. People knew after listening to that song that Michael was his own man now and didn't need his brothers alongside him anymore.

    P.s. I wouldn't call Speechless a classic though. It's a great song imo but only hardcore fans know about that song so it isn't a classic.

    Now that I think about it this question can be divided into two categories, Popularity and the song itself. If we're just talking about the composition and the song itself is it as good as masterpieces such as Man In The Mirror, Billie Jean, Earth Song etc?

    Yes the song is a great song and a very important song for Michael but imo it is a ltitle short of a MJ classic. Now another question arises, how do one define a MJ classic? What are the criteria?

    I'm not just talking about classic in terms of popularity but also in terms of how good the songs are. If that was the case then Who Is It wouldn't be on the list or any song post Quincy for that matter.

    It's a matter of opinion I guess. I feel like DTSYGE is a pop masterpiece. The song does a great job of making people feel like getting up and dancing, And that's why it's so popular and such a historic song for MJ. And composition? I can't really talk about that aspect of it because I'm not a music expert haha.

    It's not just the song that introduced Michael as an adult artist that blew everybody away-that makes it iconic. But it sounds as fresh and fun and sexy and exciting as it ever did back in 79. It's not only popular to this day, but it will be 50 or more years from now. It's timeless-that's what makes it a classic to me.

    Yes the song is a great song and a very important song for Michael but imo it is a ltitle short of a MJ classic. Now another question arises, who do one define a MJ classic? What are the criteria?
    What are the criteria? For me, an MJ classic has to do a number of things, A: It's got to be melodically, vocally and production wise, sonically brilliant. DSTYGE has all of those qualities. B: it's got to be embedded into popular culture and resonate with a wide audience, and this thing could be played anywhere in the world and people would get up and dance or bop along to it. C: It has to defy all genres, be unique and be simply recognised as Michael Jackson. I think to really get a sense of its classic status you've got to put into context what it was like when it was released and get a sense of how much of a game changer it was for MJ and hint at what was to come, also hear it at a party or a club and witness the reaction to it.

    Speechless is a great song, one of my favourites but it's not a classic in that it didn't effect or become part of the pop-culture like DSTYGE did. Black Or White is the perfect example of a post Quincy classic in that it also did all the above, perhaps not as important as DSTYGE, but it also transcended pop culture and defied genres in that it is intrinsically Michael Jackson.

    Yes, it's a classic. It's a brilliant song that's brilliantly sung. It's also extremely well known. It's one of those MJ songs practically everybody knows of.
