Thriller has been named the UK's favourite Michael Jackson song.

The track just pipped his chart-topping single Billie Jean in a poll to herald the release of new film Michael Jackson: The Life of an Icon.

Thriller - which featured the voice of horror film legend Vincent Price - was noted for its groundbreaking video with a zombie dance spectacular.

Third place went to Man In The Mirror, while in fourth position was Earth Song - famously the track which prompted Jarvis Cocker to invade the stage at the Brit Awards in 1996 after he was struck by the pomposity of the performance.

The film, which is out on DVD and Blu-ray, has been made by Jackson's friend, the producer David Gest, and features interviews with the singer's family.

It will be given a premiere in London's Leicester Square on Wednesday.
