Beat It was declared to one of the best rock songs of all time with it's famous guitar solo by van Halen. But you are right, Billie Jean is a bigger song. For many expert it's the best music song of all-time. Should have won the contest easily.

I love Eddie's solo, but BJ is the banner song of 80's MJ, maybe even from his whole career.
