    Both give me goosebumps, but I'm going to have to go with Man in the Mirror-LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that song. (And I won't mention the Grammy performance since that can't count).

    I prefer "Man in the Mirror", but that's probably because I'm not a supporter of "equal rights" between humans and animals. If it comes down to my life or the animal being saved, I pick mine.

    I would have to agree with you here. You're absolutely right. MITM always gives me goosebumps, though Earth song has the same effect on me too. In terms of Michael's writing his own music, I'd say Earth song, especially the last part with the hauntingly beautiful ad libs. But I love the 80s feel that MITM has. Especially the way it was performed (Bad tour, Dangerous tour). That is just pure magic. It's very nostalgic.

    Earth Song has a more modern feel to it, it was written almost 10 years later, so that makes sense. The lyrics are full of questions; ''What about…'' whereas MITM tells a clear story, easy to picture. The MITM ad libs are out of this world, extremely powerful, the choir reinforces Michael's powerful singing, and when the music fades, all there's left is ''Change the world''

    There are some clear differences, the 80s feel to MITN being one of the most noticeable changes compared to Earth Song, in my opinion...

    I can't decide. I love both although Earth Song was number 1 in the UK the day I was born but I love Man In The Mirror equally.

    Man In The Mirror is the better song performed live no doubt. The power when he drops to his knees, gets me every time

    I chose Earth song without a doubt; I just think the 'message' of the song really hit home for me.

    I do love "Earth Song", it gives global messages. "Man In The Mirror" gives a similar message but only to give us a chance to make a change.

    But "Man In The Mirror" really suits me, so I'm going with that.

    UGH. I'm disgusted that Earth Song is ahead of Man in the Mirror.

    Earth Song, because it's...well...earth-shattering.

    Man in the Mirror comfortably. I love Earth Song but MITM is the ultimate MJ song. It is his most powerful and inspirational song. It's a song that can be applied to everyone because Michael preaches the listeners to point the finger of blame at themselves before blaming others. And let's be honest, we have all been guilty of blaming others and deflecting the blame away from our shoulders. So MITM wins for me.

    I got a large buzz from Siedah Garrett following me on Twitter so I am bias. Man in the Mirror reminds me of the start of Moonwalker and my childhood, a song which I have loved at different times of my life for different reasons. I did love the World Music Awards performance of Earth Song though.

    Both songs are great, but MITM is just beautiful

    Man In the Mirror is inspiring to me. To me, it's more of an introspective approach to make the world a better place; whereas, Earth Song is more awareness. Both songs are in my Top 10 favorite Michael songs list!
