    I.LOVE.THIS.SONG sooo much!

    It is my secret favourite song from the BAD album: My brain says "No, it isn´t!" but my guts say "Yes, b****, it is!"

    The lyrics mean very much to me
    The melody and rhythm are pure joy
    Michael is pure joy performing it
    It is pure joy to watch Michael performing it

    I could go on
    "I´m the temple, you can´t hurt me,
    ..I found peace within myself"

    ...Michael Jackson - Jam

    One of his most underrated music videos. MJ, a stage and a live mic = heaven.

    And one of the best songs on Bad imo. Nice choice analogue!

    Tsk. That's three of you in my blackbook now! Tony, Valery and analogue. I'm keeping score.



    As for APOM? What can be said? Brilliant song, superb vocal and one of the best live performances of his career. Shame he never performed it again after the Bad tour.

    Another Part Of Me is possibly my favourite 80's MJ track. I could listen to it until the cows come home, still listen to it whilst milking the cows, feed the cows, give them a clean, then put them out in the field and I'd still be listening to it.

    It is just so damn funky, and fun, and joyous. I can't sit still listening to it especially the live at Wembley version. Like others have said, a perfect live performance. No gimmicks, no tricks, no other dancers no elaborate choreography - just MJ strutting around doing his stuff.

    It shouldn't be as good as it is - but it is amazing.

    Oh and nice message too - very relevant in 2017.

    Whenever I'm making the case that MJ was the best live performer and entertainer of all time, this video, and Heartbreak Hotel from Yokohama, is the video I present. It didn't matter if he couldn't play a thousand instruments on stage or if he had pyrotech or silly gimmicks or overbloated choreographies.. All he needed was a stage, a mic and a stand and an audience and he would set the stage on fire.

    It's weird in a way, because although its very popular with the fans, APOM feels a little forgotten about compared to many of the other tracks on Bad. I never hear it played on the radio, like I hear TWYMMF, MITM, SC and the title track. I even heard Leave Me Alone on the radio the other day, but I don't think I've ever head APOM getting played.



    And it was never included on any of the Greatest Hits albums, possibly because MJ still favoured Streetwalker (lunacy I know)?

    Can't be bothered to check, but does anybody know whether that Wembley performance from the music video is the same show as the one on the Live In Wembley DVD released with Bad25?

    It's creepy,just when i was reading this they played the song on the radio o.O

    Here in Germany they play more of his nineties stuff actually (Earth Song,They Don't Care About Us,Black Or White...)

    I honestly LOVE and prefer much more the live version over the album's. The music sounds a lot better and Michael's vocals and dancing are absolute perfection.

    You can't touch him!

    Well, I guess that depends on where you get the lyrics from. The same verse that opens with the words you mentioned, one website also ends it with "We're mean is you", which obviously doesn't make any sense either. On genius.com, I've sound far more reasonable assumptions about Michael's legendary pronunciation and most particular appropriation of English

    I'll have to listen to the song properly to make sure, but this option definitely sounds far more plausible. And btw of the song, it is incredibly infectious, so full of energy, sunshine and life. Love it to bits. Just the other week I was blasting out the extended version on the highway and lovin' every minute of it. Not to mention that the sun was piercing through the clouds matching the spirit of the song brilliantly. Don't even get me started on the video and his royal hotness struttin' his stuff all over that stage........

    I know the official video of the live performance has more frantic fans but I'd rather enjoy more the ones where the camera focuses 100% in Michael. I adore his smile in Kansas and how he has to pause to zip his pants.

    Sure it would make more sense but it just doesn't sound "a revelation" and "we need you" to me. LOL.
