Billie Jean


by Michael Jackson


Thriller (1982)

Even though Michael Jackson was already a star, Thriller elevated him to incredible new heights, with all of its seven singles becoming hit songs. This re-release features some of today's stars--Kanye West, Akon, Fergie--remixing some of the hits to keep things fresh.

Bad (1987)

Jackson had a huge undertaking when he attempted to best Thriller with his next studio album, but Bad does just that, with its record five number one singles.

The Essential Michael Jackson (2005)

This compilation is an excellent introduction to Michael's music; though it does not contain some of the best deep cuts or even all of his hits, it makes up for it with its breadth.

Thriller 25 Super Deluxe Edition (2008)

The "super deluxe edition" features even more remixes and some voiceovers by producer Quincy Jones.
