Remembering the music of Michael Jackson

With Michael Jackson’s unfortunate passing from a heart attack today, we thought we’d take the opportunity to remember Jackson the way he should be, through his music.

The King of Pop was a hit maker that changed the way music was marketed and presented. Even those born after his hits know the words, and the songs will live on many years into the future.

For our earlier coverage, see Michael Jackson dead and Grief at Michael Jackson’s death.

Michael Jackson Number 1s

1979: Don’t Stop ’til You Get Enough

1979: Rock With You

1983: Billy Jean

1983: Beat It

1984: Thriller

Interesting bit of history: despite perhaps being Jacskson’s best known work, Thriller never hit Number 1 in the United States, only managed to reach 4th spot. It did however hit 1st spot on the dance charts. Either way, we’re including it.
