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).
