    Default Best Musical Riff?

    I was listening to "Heartbreak Hotel" a few minutes ago, and two things struck me:

    1. how amazing the main piano riff is; and
    2. how incredible Michael was at coming up with catchy riffs.

    There are so many examples in his catalog of earworm guitar/synth/bass melodies. He's the greatest at it, as far as I'm concerned. So, what do YOU think his best is?

    I limited the choices to the riffs that I feel stand out the most, though feel free to chime in with any others! I also excluded anything that could be considered a progression, such as the verses of "Dirty Diana" and the main guitar of "Stranger in Moscow."

    Sound off!
