MY HIT LIST-I wanna be where you are Michael Jackson & The Jackson 5

I wanna be where you are
From The Motown album Got To Be there. Song written by Arthur T Bone Ross & Leon Ware

With Michael Jackson again in the news it's time to rediscover one of his greatest records. This seldom heard 1972 song covered by Dudley Moore, Carleen Anderson & Paul Weller, Erykah Badu & the Roots, Dusty Springfield, Beyonce, Marvin Gaye, Jose Feliciano and the song's co writer Leon Ware, is a superb reminder of Michael Jackson's immense talent as a youngster. It's a song that I defy anyone to listen to without feeling a tingle; It's marvellous.

The covers, by and large, have been very good too:
Dusty Springfield
Carleen Anderson & Paul weller
Jose Feliciano
