#1 “Billie Jean” (from Thriller):

Referring to the simple “boom-chock” drum beat that opens the song, 10.5 says “not many bands do that” and, again, he’s right. Well, a lot of bands do it, but few can do it with as much swing as John Robinson did here. He adds that his “hiccuping voice adds to the rhythm of the song” and that “the video of him dancing is amazing.” For me, it’s again the groove that makes “Billie Jean” the very best Michael song.
