    I believe I first heard this song in Captain EO, so it's part of my early childhood memories. Great song on an all around fantastic album.

    I love how MJ sings ''You're just another pwart of me'' on the album version.

    :busted:
    These lyrics from that site (www.amiright.com/misheard) are not really misheard lyrics, but they are intended to make fun of the original ones. It is pretty obvious.

    That site does these changes solely for the sake of parody (despite its claims to the contrary) & this applies to songs from other artists as well.

    I also noticed that it deliberately changes the original lyrics to fake ("misheard") ones giving them mostly sexual connotations. That site is really a waste of time.

    So positive and upbeat, I just love it.

    A bouncy pop melody, pure fun and perfection, a total cheer up song.

    Another reason why Bad is such a great album in every way

    And its bringing brighter days!

    I love the version on Captain EO too, it has some of his best Aowws!!! as well.

    Another Part of Me almost never gets any spins on my iTunes playlist, and I'm ashamed. I'm never truly compelled to listen to it, but whenever it comes on I'm reminded how excellent it is. Everything from the production to the lyricism to the arrangements to the instrumentation to Michael's vocals is a home run.

    It still surprises me that Michael preferred Streetwalker. Great tune, but APOM wins by a country mile.

    Nooooo ! I should not have read this thread. I still love it, but somehow, I always thought the music video was a live performance. Turns out it contains several performances. How could I have missed the black microphone ? I should have used wikipedia.

    I will not stop listening to it on my phone. The intro gives me goosebumps. "Paow ! Oooooh !"

    Love this song, over the years it has become one of my favorites. Very funky bassline and rhythm guitar (a similar lick is played at the end of Al Capone too), but also has some real cool synth lines and textures - a combo MJ always excelled in.

    I find the live version less impressive than the album version (am not a huge fan of the Bad Tour band sound), but it does have that fantastic funky coda at the end - I wish there was an extended studio version that contained this too.

    This is also one song for which I would love to have the demo in high quality. I heard a version that was slightly different from the Captain EO demo at Brad Sundberg's seminar and it was amazing - the rawness and prominence of the bass made it extra funky. The dub mix that's out is great too.

    Quincy gets a lot of flak for not digging Smooth Criminal (and the long Billie Jean intro), but he was 100% right when it came to picking APOM over Streetwalker!
