    Default Working Day And Night live vocals

    I think the live vocals for Working Day And Night are really overlooked. With that performance most people seem to only focus on the dancing, and the flashy stage effects. But I've always loved Michael's vocals during his Working Day And Night performances. I love his adlibs.

    "I AINT WORKIIIIIIING....."

    Unreal. When the song completely breaks down to the "Im tired of you, gon' quit my job...." etc.

    Especially the "bbbbrrrrupppaaaddaaaddbuppppp" in on the Jacksons Live, Bucharest. In Toronto, Yokohama, Wembley, Bucharest its one of the highlights in each show

    I just get goosebumps thinking about it! WDAN Live is a damn masterpiece! It's so creative and unpredictable and his vocals are so great. I even think his voice fitted the song more during the Dangerous Tour than previous tours.

    I think it's his best song vocally on the Dangerous Tour

    The 3rd Leg of the Dangerous World Tour is absolutely incomplete without this and Beat It. Its such an important part of every tour from 81 to 92.

    The fact that MJ performed WDAN till the Dangerous Tour despite it not being a single shows just how popular this song was and I think MJ knew that he made a mistake by not releasing it as a single. It was a certain top 5 hit at least.

    I love that he performed it despite it not being a single. He should have performed more non singles songs on his tours.

    Spot on! He really should have. So many album tracks that I would love to now watch and listen to, would have made the different tours more interesting in retrospect. I still love all the tours but man, if he just mixed up the setlist slightly. It's one of the reasons I probably watch so much HIStory Tour; just for the setlist, and half imagine that the vocals are live.

    As for WDAN, it was brilliant, the Dangerous tour version was probably the best vocally but I do love the Victory Tour performance and that jump suit, also Bad tour.

    His singing within a real comfortable range for him on those performances. It shows.

    To me the Working Day and Night, Beat It, Billie Jean part was always the highlight of MJ concerts.

    Beat It? Really?

    I always found that one to be a bit boring live.

    I'm with you on the other two though.

    The 93 show seems is an incomplete concert without Beat It. Just a shame when it came back there came a baseball themed ending with it...
