iTunes Editors’ Notes

Although Michael Jackson left behind many unanswered questions, this 2003 compilation reminds us that more importantly he left us with a legacy of great songs. The title suggests that Number Ones comprises chart toppers, but not every song here hit at number one. The ambient and harmonious “Break Of Dawn” was never a single and while there’s no denying that “Thriller” is one of Jackson’s most epic hits ever, replete with Vincent Price’s zombie rap at the end, it wasn't a number one (though it came close at number four). “Smooth Criminal” and “Earth Song” are also awesome songs in their own right that never hit a one spot, and his number one duet with Paul McCartney “Say Say Say” is curiously absent. Still, Number Ones stands as an enjoyable listen and a great way to remember the King Of Pop. The songs here are sequenced chronologically, save for the last two bonus tracks – the beat-heavy ballad “One More Chance” was recorded exclusively for this 2003 collection and a 1981 live version of the easy listening hit “Ben” that Jackson recorded as a child with his family band The Jackson 5 bookends the collection.

Customer Reviews


It's funny. How amazingly large he was. Millions of viewers are watching. Millions of downloads - EVERYWHERE!!. Him. Trying to make a comeback...why? - because ALL he ever wanted all along was - to be remembered. He wanted to feel relevant, in a non-relevant world. He sought what he finally achieved in death - EVERYONE. EVERYONE WATCHING...and remember him the way he truly is. Beautiful!


This man is has been brilliant since age 5... his talent is immense and no one will ever even come close to being as unique, exquisite, and brilliant as Michael Jackson... His death was sudden and unexpected but this man has lived through tough times and still grew up to be such an amazing man. I think that everyone will agree when i say Michael Jackson is and always will be IRREPLACEABLE!!!!!! will all my love.. the heavens are where you belong and i have faith that he is still singing and dancing for god just like he always has been.... God Bless You M.J. ... You are sure to be missed!

Best Of all Time

You honestly cant think of a better dance, performer, or song maker that has ever existed other than him. He IS the best of all time. NO ONE has or ever will be as good as he was. If you try to say someone is better than him youll just look like an idiot.

Michael Jackson was unquestionably the biggest pop star of the late 20th century, and certainly one of the most popular recording artists of all time. In his prime, Jackson was an unstoppable juggernaut, possessed of all the tools to dominate the charts seemingly at will: an instantly identifiable voice, eye-popping dance moves, stunning musical versatility, and loads of sheer star power. His 1982 blockbuster Thriller became the biggest-selling album of all time (probably his best-known accomplishment),...
