My most favourite Michael Jackson track is Thriller because that was the first song where I saw MJ dancing. The sound of that music is so great that you can’t recreate it even now. (Read interview: Michael Jackson inspired me to dance, says Remo D'Souza)

My favourite Michael Jackson song is the Earth Song, as it has a lot of soul and meaning to it. It’s special as it is not a death anniversary song for me. Till the time you are passionate about dance, MJ will always be alive!
Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough is my favourite. It’s 1980s Pop. I personally do like Funk. My favourite album is History but it’s very tough to choose only one when there are myriad masterpieces by the one and only MJ!
My favourite MJ track is The Way You Make Me Feel because it has soul and the one thing that is so distinctly MJ — the groove of the song. It makes you move and brings out the essence of the song so beautifully.
I love the track, Butterflies. I love its super slow jam, laidback vibe and also the fact that it was written and produced by Andre Harris who’s better known for his work with (American singer) Jill Scott. He gave Jackson a completely fresh and unexpected sound at that time. Loads of vibe, and funky. Love it.
