  OFF THE WALL. The next few songs are from the album Off The Wall except One Day In Your Life.
In 1979, Michael Jackson released his first adult solo album Off The Wall on the heels of the number 2 relative comeback song by The Jacksons, Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground), which of course, included Michael Jackson singing. Off The Wall produced two number one hits, Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough, which was styled much like Shake Your Body, and Rock With You, the biggest hit off the album.
The songs Off The Wall and She's Outta My Life then made the top 10. This gave Michael Jackson the second single disk studio album to have four top 10 hits -- something that only Fleetwood Mac had done before. Off The Wall spent months at number 2 on the Billboard album charts, with The Wall by Pink Floyd keeping it from reaching number one.

  THRILLER. The next few songs are from the album Thriller except Say Say Say and Happy.
In 1982, Michael Jackson released his album Thriller, and the first release was the ballad The Girl Is Mine with Paul McCartney. The Girl Is Mine became a number one song at Christmas, and the dance rock music was yet to come. Thriller became the top studio album of all time, producing three number one hits. In addition, Thriller was the first single disk studio album to produce more than four top 10 hits -- in fact, it produced seven. In the meantime, Michael Jackson returned the favor to Paul McCartney and performed the duet Say Say Say on Paul's album, producing another number one song.
