Soft Criminal is precisely one of Michael Jackson's biggest 80's. Not only because of the perfect music characterized by a fast dance beat, typical of Michael's work of that era.
The song is also famous for its inimitable dance element called lean (3:38 time). The song has more versions and the longest (with nine minutes) accompanies the key scene of the short film Moonwalker.
