I think Heal the World gets the message across a bit better but Man in the Mirror is the better song in my opinion....if that makes sense?

Man in the mirror, haven't voted as it is only my 5th post. Nothing compares to that song. Yet can not understand why Earth song and Human nature are not there either. Michael is addressing the same ideas in those.

The poll is missing a lot of songs, like "Cry", "Earth Song", "History", "Keep The Faith", "On The Line", "Shout" (yes, "Shout"), "We Are The World", "We've Had Enough" and "What More Can I Give".

Anyway, I consider "Man In The Mirror" to be the best one.

Even if I LOVE man in the mirror, Heal the World is the best IMO. That song is pure Michael, you can feel he put his soul in it in every word, and also, Earth Song, that's a tie between the two for me.

Also, I know it was never released, but I love 'What can I give' - beautiful composition by Mike :)[/QUOTE]

It was released

'we are the world' the lyrics are straightforward, compassionate, and practical at the same time.

has a simple and memorable melody. it's masterfully arranged and builds as it progresses. really set the blueprint for the others that followed.

He had more "make the world a better place songs" than are available on the poll; my favorite of all those would be Earth Song, it moves me deeply. But out of the options available, Man in the Mirror by a huge margin.

Man in the Mirror - that song could only be Michael, and it was the first (after We Are The World). I :heart: it SO much. Earth song is incredible, but as Travis Payne said; 'it stops me in my tracks' and so I don't listen to it as much, because I literally break down when I hear it :mello:

Cry isn't on the list either? or We are here to Change the World and Another Part of Me...to me these are all about changing the world.

Also, I know it was never released, but I love 'What can I give' - beautiful composition by Mike :)


I agree with your post...there probably should be a few more choices on the poll.

"Cry" always seems to fly under the radar. "What More Can I Give" is an excellent song.
Also "We've Had Enough".....but it's probably more a protest/social conscience song.

I voted for "Man in the Mirror"....nothing tops that song, in my opinion. Nothing ever will.

I legit think that if MJ had released "We've Had Enough" on Invincible in the wake of 9/11, popular support for war in the Middle East might have been way less than it was in our timeline.
