In a way, this is the nicest tribute possible. (Plus, that's a wicked nice photo on the cover!)

The biggest MJJ hit for me was of course Stranger in Moscow (18 weeks, 2x#1, #135 on the all time chart), followed by Blood On The Dance Floor (#6, 9 weeks). I still stand by both -- I love them dearly.

My favs are:
No 1 - Ben
No 2 - The Way You Make Me Feel
No 3 - Thriller
No 4 - Man In The Mirror
No 5 - Black Or White
Don't Stop Til You Get Enough gets an honourable mention. But there are so many good ones, hard to choose!

am currently obsessed with man in the mirror, which didn't even make top 20 first time round in the Uk. And of course i love Liberian Girl only because it has my beloved Deb Gibson in the video doing a bit of harmony.

What an ace top 7 though!

Glad you loved the Top 7!:)
