    Talking Let's Our Definitive MJ Album!

    There's a great thread about re-sequencing the Invincible album and it got me thinking. Build your definitive MJ studio album.

    The album you build won't be a "greatest hits" collection, don't worry about the time it was released, this is all hypothetical, what if imagine these are all "new tracks" on this album.

    You can choose ANY song ever released and unreleased (J5 and Jacksons included).
    Maximum Number of tracks = 36 (3-disc set)
    Least Number of tracks = 8
    Maximum number of singles = 4
    Least number of singles = 1
    B-Sides are allowed and do not have to be on your track list.
    Unreleased songs are allowed

    Mine would be: the "Man in the Mirror" album

    Disc One:


    1. Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough
    2. 2Bad
    3. Body Language
    4. Blame it on the Boogie
    5. Streetwalker
    6. Monkey Business
    7. The Way You Make Me Feel
    8. Carousel
    9. Scared of the Moon
    10. The Lady in My Life
    11. Break of Dawn
    12. Ain't No Sunshine


    Disc 2:


    1. Chicago
    2. Billie Jean
    3. Do You Know Where Your Children Are
    4. Dirty Diana
    5. Come Together
    6. Black or White
    7. Dangerous
    8. Smooth Criminal
    9. Blue Gangsta
    10. Childhood
    11. Free


    Disc 3


    1. Love Never Felt So Good
    2. Workin' Day and Night
    3. Liberian Girl
    4. Loving You
    5. This Is It
    6. Stranger in Moskow
    7. Heal the World
    8. Earth Song
    9. We've Had Enough
    10. On The Line
    11. Man in the Mirror


    Singles:

    Billie Jean - B-Side: Hollywood Tonight
    This Is It - B-Side: Best of Joy
    Blue Gangsta - B-Side: Xscape
    The Way You Make Me Feel - B-Side: Touch the One You Love

    After writing this, I'm not sure of my choices because they're all so great!

    What would yours be?

    I had more or less the same idea, but with only b-sides/rares/leaks/unreleased... (and 2 CDs instead of of 3... and for leaks limited the qualities that are currently available.)

    9. Beat It
    10. Thriller
    11. Behind the Mask
    12. It Don't Matter To Me [Interlude]

    Side Two:
    1. Bad
    2. Smooth Criminal
    3. Man in the Mirror
    4. Jam
    5. Remember the Time
    6. Dangerous
    7. Black or White
    8. Scream
    9. They Don't Care About Us
    10. You Are Not Alone
    11. Stranger in Moscow
    12. Changes [Interlude]

    Side Three:
    1. Unbreakable
    2. Heaven Can Wait
    3. You Rock My World
    4. Threatened
    5. Shout
    6. Never Again (Chicago 1945)
    7. Hollywood Tonight
    8. Chicago
    9. Love Never Felt So Good
    10. Best of Joy

    Which version ? (There is a "1973 version" which is very different from the "classic" version, which was recorded earlier I think.)
