Jacko poll results revealed

That big public vote to decide what should go on the Michael Jackson best of? Looks like they've decided to ignore it, judging by some of the clunkers that are lined up for it:

'Billie Jean'
'Smooth Criminal'
'Black Or White'
'Beat It'
'Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’'
'Don’t Stop ’Til You Get Enough'
'The Way You Make Me Feel'
'Rock With You'
'You Are Not Alone'
'Man In The Mirror'
'Remember The Time'
'You Rock My World'
'They Don’t Care About Us'
'Earth Song'

You don't have to be an expert in Florida chads to know that a public vote which claims that They Don't Care About Us and Earth Song are held in public affection - even amongst the sort of public who'd vote for a Michael Jackson tracklist - isn't quite right.

The amount of esteem scary Michael Jackson fans hold Earth Song is terrifying. They genuinely think it's a howling immortal protest song on a par with Dylan.

Scary fact - 'Earth Song' is his biggest-selling single in the UK!

But how can that even be? I suppose the Thriller singles were hampered by everyone owning the album, but even so - I'm genuinely floored by that. Even Black Or White at least managed a tune...
