OFF THE WALL. The next few songs are from
Off The Wall except One Day In Your Life.
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 US album charts, with The Wall by Pink
Floyd keeping it from reaching number one.
THRILLER. The next few songs are from the
except Say Say Say.
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.
BAD. Following songs through Leave Me Alone are from the album Bad, except Get It.
In 1987, Michael Jackson released the album Bad. Bad was the first single disk studio album to attain five number one hits. Over the next year and a half, there were seven top 20 songs from Bad, the biggest being Man In The Mirror.
DANGEROUS. The next few songs are from the album Dangerous, except Whatzupwitu.
In 1991, the album Dangerous came out, producing two more number one songs for Michael Jackson, Black Or White and Remember The Time. Dangerous gave Michael Jackson six more top 20 hits, and nine songs that became popular.
HISTORY. The next few songs are from the album History.
In 1995, Michael Jackson released a two-disk album, History Past, Present And Future Book I. The first disk included many of the hits by Michael Jackson above. The second disk included new material, including duets with his sister Janet Jackson.
