Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'

Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' is een single uit 1983 van Michael Jackson van het album Thriller. Het is het eerste nummer van het album, maar het werd pas als vierde als single uitgegeven, na The Girl Is Mine, Billie Jean en Beat It. Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' was de tweede nummer 1-hit van het album in Nederland.

Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' is een nummer dat zelf is geschreven door Michael Jackson. Het nummer is erg snel. Samen met het nummer Billie Jean is het een nummer waarin Michael's wantrouwen in de buitenwereld wordt weergegeven.

In het lied wordt hoog en ademloos gezongen en er komt vaak "oows" of "hoo-hoos" in voor. Het nummer duurt 6 minuten en 3 seconden en is daarmee het langste nummer van het album Thriller.

No One Can Hurt You Now
Because You Know What's True
Yes, I Believe In Me
So You Believe In You
Help Me Sing It, Ma Ma Se,
Ma Ma Sa, Ma Ma Coo Sa
Ma Ma Se, Ma Ma Sa,
Ma Ma Coo Sa
