    Indeed, the obvious choice for me is Speechless even before I opened the thread and read the choices lol

    "Whatever Happens" and "Don't walk away" make a good 2nd and 3rd choice as I love the heart breaking 'story line' in it but it's the A Capella in "Speechless" that rips your heart out really

    Break of Dawn for me. Just wish MJ would have done all the background vocals himself.

    Butterflies got my vote. I set this song as my wake-up alarm. I wake up with MJ's whispering "Butterflies" every mornings

    Don’t Walk Away punches me in the heart every single time. His voice and the lyrics are flawless.

    It's a tough choice between Speechless and Butterflies, as both are gorgeous songs and feature some of the finest vocals from Michael. I'll go with Speechless, but only just.

    I voted for Whatever Happens as I love everything about it: the melody, the lyrics, the mood and it has the most balanced production for me.

    I agree though that Speechless has the most amazing vocals, I just wish the instrumentation was more stripped down, sort of acoustic to convey better the vulnerable and... well, speechless feel to it.

    Break Of Down could be also perfect for me with MJ only background vocals.

    Butterflies is a beautiful song with great vocals that I appreciate a lot, but the style isn't really my cup of tea.

    I consider The Lost Children a good song too with an important topic so dear to MJ.

    And I must confess that although it's quite an average song I can't help but like Cry, the melody is just so nice to my ears, I always have to hum along when I hear it.

    Hmmm, reading through this there isn't such a big problem with the ballads on Invincible after all (which has been my impression). Maybe it's just that there's too many of them on one album and not well-sorted.

    BREAK OF DAWN


    God, I thank you for allowing Michael to continue to watch over his children:

    Prince Michael, Paris, and Blanket ("Bigi").

    Break of Dawn is just incredible and it is really Prince like too. The sexy sound of this smouldering ballad is Michael's best quiet storm ballad of all time and reminds me a lot of Al Green, Marvin Gaye and even some Teddy Prendergrass along with Prince at his most sexy and soulful.

    The whole album is full of killer ballads and Michael's voice just sores, some of his best singing is on Invincible.
    Speechless, Heaven can wait, Cry, Butterflies, You are my life and of course Wahtever Happens are just vocal magic.
