Top 20 Minor Hits from Major Artists

Everybody remembers 2 hits Michael Jackson recorded with Paul McCartney: "Ebony & Ivory" and "Say Say Say". Right? Well, did you know there was a third song? "The Man" enjoyed a very modest success resulting in very limited airplay and no video. Still, it was a good song. A song that most people don't know about or have forgotten. This is the spirit of this list. These are forgotten "great" minor hits and you will probably not find in a Greatest Hits album. These are my Top 20 Minor hits from Major Artists.
