50 Best Songs – The Motown Years: Michael Jackson & The Jackson 5 (also known as 50 Best Songs or The Motown Years) is a 3-disc compilation box set by American singer Michael Jackson, and the group The Jackson 5, released on 2008 by Universal Motown Records celebrating Jackson's 50 birthday. The 50-track album features all of the hits through the Motown years from both the Jackson 5 with "ABC", "I Want You Back", "Never Can Say Goodbye" and Michael's solo material including "You've Got a Friend", "Ben", "Ain't No Sunshine" and "One Day in Your Life", all of them during their tenure on Motown (1969–1975), with the exception of "Farewell My Summer Love" and "Girl You're So Together", which were released after they left the company (these tracks were released in 1984).[1][2]

Some tracks released here gained some attention during their original release, like "Touch" (originally released in 1973).
