Matt Thomas… Human Nature

Tony May… So hard to pick one but I guess, ‘Billie Jean’ has the most precious memories attached to it for me…

Terry Hardwick… I’m still recovering from your Billy Jean King Tennis Joke from Speakeasy.

Alan Esdaile…  I’ll Be There

Matt Thomas…  For danceability it would be ‘Wanna Be Starting Something’

Jeff Belton… Thriller for me, a floor filler !

Martin Richter…  love the choreography on The Jackson 5 – I Want You Back soul train, you tube video.

Terry Pack… I want you back. Great harmony, bass line, lyric, and VOCALS!

Patricia Wapshott… His cover of Charlie Chaplin’s Smile is sung with such conviction it so heartbreakingly beautiful and I chose as the exit song at my Mum’s funeral . I love it even though every time I listen to it I cry . And for something more up beat . I want you back , love the lyrics

Jacqui Pearce… Pretty Young Thing

Tony May… Oh Patricia, so lovely to see someone else that likes the sensitive side to Michael’s work. ‘Smile’ and ‘Childhood’ are amazing songs – I think the ‘History’ (non hits CD) is easily up there with his very best work. ‘You Are Not Alone’ was the song I blubbed to when he died…

Paul Bryant… Off the wall.
