The song has the magical ability to put me in a good mood. It's not a deep searching question of "why do we exist????????" dressed in black turtlenecks- it's just fun. I enjoy it, makes me grin.

I think the reason Just Good Friends doesn’t get much praise is because it is surrounded by so many great hits. If that song had been on any other artist’s album, it would have been deemed a great song. But songs like Smooth Criminal and Dirty Diana could make any good song sound bad, when you compare them.
I love Just Good Friends. The vocals are excellent and as others have said, it's fun song. I think it could have had an interesting video. To me, the song does have a message: don't judge a book by its cover. Not bad advice to be reminded of even now and then
Before you judge me, try hard to love me. Look within your heart then ask: have YOU seen my childhood?
I'm starting with the man in the mirror. I'm asking him to change his ways. And no message could have been any clearer. If you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and then make a change.
I agree. I think it's an underrated song. I wish MJ & Stevie Wonder did more duets. They're really great together.

"Listen UP! Hee! We got a problem here!"
yall better stop hating on my 2nd favorite MJ record ... it sounds old but thats one of the funkiest jams out..
"My baby loves me...she luv meh, she luv meh, she luv meh.. hee.. hee..... hooooo hoooooooooo!"
I also cannot understand the dislike for this song. I love it, his vocals are amazing in this and the music always makes me wanna dance. No disrespect to Stevie Wonder but i kinda wish it was MJ doing ALL the lyrics because he sounds that good, even though it wouldnt really fit with the song.
I honestly can't believe some people would label JGF as "filler." Like, what?!
This song is so much fun. It's impossible for me not to be in a good mood when I hear it. Same goes for Get It (which I absolutely LOVE!!!!).
It's one of my favourite duets!

Come Together is a filler when it comes to the history album, its not a bad song but it doesnt fit with the rest of the album, it is from 1987 or so, when the rest of the songs were recorded later than that and sound completely different, I heard that he put Come Together on History because he gave Why to 3T. anyone know if thats true?
Worry about your character, not your reputation, for your character is who you are, and your reputation is who people perceive you to be
I only learned to love "Just Good Friends" in recent years. I love the style of
the music production. The lyrics are pretty weak though, agreed.
So who prefers the other duet "Get It" over "Just Go Friends"?
I think i do. But they are not far apart from each other.
He gave Why to 3T. But i'm sure with the amounts of unreleased songs Michael had,
giving away Why didn't exactly force him to use Come Together for the HIStory album.
I guess he just liked Come Together, and finally wanted to give it a proper release on an album.
