Top 10 Michael Jackson Videos

June 25, 2010

Enjoy my top 10 Michael Jackson videos here. In celebration of Michael Jackson’s life and incomparable career, I put aside the tissue box and Haagen Daaz to man up. Sure, we’ve lost one of the most influential musicians way too soon, but it’s time to celebrate. It’s time to remember the artist, the gloved one, the man with the angelic voice and the signature dance moves. Yes, even the crotch grab.

The Top 10 Michael Jackson videos were compiled together carefully after extensive listening, reminiscing and imitating MJ’s fancy footwork on my slippery linoleum floor. Hours past and then I realized I had to put my collective ten in order. Considering that all of Michael’s videos have something special about them, I did my best according to my current mood, which is a tad bitchy, emotional and a tad ticked that I threw my back out after an attempt at a swiveled hip sway. So here they are! Enjoy and in case you feel the urge to replicate the crotch grab, moonwalk and other sequential dance moves I encourage you to stretch thoroughly before doing so.

10. Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough
This was one of Michael’s first singles that really showcased his talent as a solo artist. And while the background graphics are cheesy, it is the black and white tuxedo and his big fat smile that lands this one on my top video list.

9. The Way You Make Me Feel
In a nutshell, this video tells a story where boy tries to impress girl, girl ignores and walks away, he teases at about 3:58 with a pelvic thrust and he earns himself a smile. However, it is after the male group choreographed dance sequence that the girl is smitten. And come on, wouldn’t you be after some hardcore moves like that?

8. Beat It
No one has or ever will rock the perm-mullet like Michael. I’m not sure which is the best part, the hip sway move at 4:00 or the dude going into convulsions at about 4:20. At any rate, it’s a video that has me giggling every time I watch it.

7. Black or White
Macaulay Culkin stars in this video and the morphing effects brought the word “trippy” to a whole ‘nother level.

6. You are Not Alone
There’s nothing like seeing a shirtless Michael sporting a mushroom haircut while canoodling the daughter of the King of Rock and Roll. Need I say more?

5. Remember The Time
Egyptian extravaganza that Michael sports a gold skirt in. I want one of those.

4. You Rock My World
Chris Tucker is MJ’s sidekick in this mini movie where Michael’s dance moves could make a man lay down dead.

3. Earth Song
This is by far one of my favorite songs by MJ and the video is as powerful as the message. What I loved most about Michael was that he used his celebrity and his talent to make beautiful creations like this to make us all think about life and to be thankful for what we were given. Underlying message here is basically to quit being douchebags to the Earth and all its comprised of or we will feel the wrath of Mother Nature.

2. Scream
This is by far one of my favorite choreographed videos of his. The futuristic feel of this video and teaming up with Janet was absolute genius. Everytime I watch this one I feel like screaming and I usually do.

1. Thriller
This video needs no commentary. It is so brilliant that it is scary.

So lay it on me. What do you think of my top 10 Michael Jackson videos? What are your favorites? Let me know what you think in the comments section. For now, I’m off to go ice my back.
