Over the past couple of days a lot of people have been reflecting on their favorite Michael Jackson songs. Of course most of us can't just choose one song. As with any artist, my 'favorite song' changes as I evolve as a person.
I remember when "BAD" was first released and many people were saying it was the beginning of the end for Michael Jackson. To be honest, as a DJ I don't think I have played any MJ songs that were released after Thriller. Earlier today I heard 'Man in the Mirror' for the first time in a really long time. I currently feel this song is the most moving (and underrated) piece of work that MJ ever released. The majority of the MJ catalogue is consumed with great dance and party songs, as well as a few amazing ballades. Man in the Mirror however is a sonic masterpiece combined with a powerful and inspiring message.
