11. On The Line (1997)A very hard choice! 'Dirty Diana' is probably his best vocal performance of the 80s! It was in my Top 10 when I compiled this list, but I changed it recently. Still an ultimate favourite, though.
>> 'Dirty Diana" was the fifth consecutive no. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 off Bad.
My 'pick-me-up' song! 'On The Line' has such a power to make me optimistic and happy!
This masterpiece is an outtake of HIStory sessions, later released as a promo single included in the Michael Jackson's Ghosts Deluxe Collector Box Set, and then as part of the The Ultimate Collection [long version].
>> Although its credited as theme song of 'Get on the Bus', OTL is not featured on the soundtrack.
My favourite 'hard rock' song of 90's! Although I love these bands, I think 'Give In To Me' slays any Nirvana, Guns n' Roses, etc., hit. It's simply a masterpiece!
The 7th single off Dangerous, GITM shows us a MJ playing rock at his prime, fiercer than ever! And it features a great guitar performance by Slash (former GNR), that proves he's as fantastic as MJ previous guests: Steve Stevens ('Dirty Diana') and Eddie Van Halen ('Beat It').
>> 'Give In To Me' was never performed live.
>> Despite it was not released in United States, its music video premiere happened during an Oprah Winfrey interview with Michael (Oprah's biggest audience ever: 90 million).
