Whenever you speak of Michael Jackson, the only album that strikes your mind is ‘Thriller’. What made him gain such immense popularity and such a huge queue of fans is his mellifluous voice. Michael Jackson songs are world famous.
I hope I don’t need to give an elaborate biography of Jackson, but I’ll give you a brief one. If God had clubbed the perspective of a singer, songwriter and dancer and bestowed it to one human, it was Michael Jackson (MJ). Being the eighth child of the Jackson family MJ developed the Jackson 5, a band comprising of his siblings.
Regarding his childhood, he had a pathetic one as his relationship with his father was not normal. He was regularly whipped and verbally abused.
The famous albums Michael Jackson recorded were innumerable. Let’s take a quick look at the hits:

- Off The Wall – if you want to listen to some rock and pop, this is the ideal album you should listen to. ‘Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough’ from this album won the Grammy award.
- Thriller – who doesn’t know about Thriller? The album got nominated 12 times and won 8 Grammy awards.
