JUKE BOX

Billie Jean by Michael Jackson

Take the beat out of Michael Jackson's songs and there's very little left to listen to. But there's one Jackson song that has remained a favourite with me since his 1982 album Thriller introduced it    Billie Jean. I'm willing to ignore his voice for this particular number which has pretty good lyrics and music too. After all these years I still enjoy listening to Thriller and Beat It and I still marvel at how the crotch-grabbing pop sensation beat Elvis Presley's record — beat, beat, beat...

  4. Charles, I know quite a few people who give BILLIE JEAN the thumbs-up. I have never listened to DIRTY DIANA before but now I'll listen to it. I might like it.

  5. I don't think of myself as a fan, but I like most everything he's done going back to when he was a kid singing with his brothers.

  6. Ron, I must admit I'm not familiar with Michael Jackson's songs while he was a part of Jackson Five.
