What a bizarre way of thinking! I hate those snobs!NothingFails wrote:I know MJ was such a towering defining figure of the 1980's, but its hard to believe how dismissive people have been of the latter work just because of Thriller. Even to an extent I've seen people dismiss Bad. On another forum not long ago, I saw someone (this guy is a 50-something obsessed with The Beatles and Woodstock who hates pop mind you, he claims that Madonna was a tool sent to "destroy" rock music if that means anything) who posted about how Dangerous was the reason why grunge had to happen in 1991-1992. There were a lot of reasons why grunge needed to happen, but Dangerous wasn't one of them. That album pretty much defined r&b in the first half of that decade.
DIDN'T MAKE THE TOP 50:
SHE'S OUT OF MY LIFE (1980)
US: #10 / UK: #3
Now some people will cry blood for seeing this out of the Top 50 (LOL)!
Well, 'She's Out Of My Life' is a very nice ballad, and although I like it (specially the DEMO VERSION, which it's even better), I don't think it's one of his best efforts - and its music video is MJ's worst one.
