CINCINNATI - All hail the King of Pop: Michael Jackson would have been 55 years old on August 29. Jackson was born on August 29, 1958 in Gary, Ind. and dominated the charts since his emergence with The Jackson 5 in 1964. The gloved one died in 2009, but his passing didn't shrink his growing fan base or diminish the power of his music.

To celebrate Michael Jackson's birthday, we asked Tri-Staters to tell us their all-time favorite MJ jams.

Here they are!

Thriller

Man in the Mirror

Smooth Criminal

Don't Stop Til You Get Enough

PYT

Beat It

Billie Jean

Dirty Diana

The Way You Make Me Feel

BONUS

We had to include this one, because name one other video that features appearances by Eddie Murphy, Iman and Magic Johnson as Egyptians?
