    Default Man in the mirror (Official video)



    Music video: One of the videos is a notable departure from Jackson's other videos mainly because Jackson himself does not appear in the video (aside from a brief clip toward the end of the video in which he can be seen donning a red jacket and standing in a large crowd). Instead, it featured a montage of footage of various major news events and famous people.[11]

    The Man in the Mirror music video was directed, produced and edited by Don Wilson. Don and Michael Jackson developed the idea for the video. Larry Stessel who was Video Commissioner at Epic Records at the time was the Executive Producer.

    An alternate live video was used as the opening song in Jackson's film Moonwalker with live audio and footage from several live performances of the song during the Bad World Tour. The first segment of Moonwalker is a live performance of "Man in the Mirror" during his Bad Tour in Europe. Clips from Wembley Stadium among others can be seen. It also features a montage of clips of children in Africa, Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Jesus Christ, kids in Graduation, and other historical figures.

    Live performances: Jackson performed a live, extended version of the song at the 1988 Grammy Awards. He also performed the song as the ending of the concert during the Bad World Tour's second leg, and regularly during the Dangerous World Tour. Live versions of the song are available on the DVDs Live at Wembley July 16, 1988 and Live in Bucharest: The Dangerous Tour. On July 16, 1996, Jackson also performed "Man in the Mirror" at the Royal Concert Brunei for the last time prior to the United We Stand benefit concert.

    The instrumental introduction to the song was played at the end of Jackson's memorial service, while his casket was being carried out; followed by the appearance of a spotlight shining on a microphone on an empty stage. After a closing prayer that incorporated themes from the song, the spotlight remained shining on the lone microphone. The song is also featured as the final number in Michael Jackson's This Is It.


    Lyrics:
    I'm gonna make a change
    For once in my life
    It's gonna feel real good
    Gonna make a difference
    Gonna make it right

    As I turn up the collar on
    My favourite winter coat
    This wind is blowin' my mind
    I see the kids in the street
    With not enough to eat
    Who am I to be blind?
    Pretending not to see their need

    A summer's disregard
    A broken bottle top
    And a one man's soul
    They follow each other on the wind you know
    'Cause they got nowhere to go
    That's why I want you to know

    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've been a victim of a selfish kind of love
    It's time that I realize
    That there are some with no home,
    Not a nickel to loan
    Could it be really me
    Pretending that they're not alone?

    A widow deeply scarred
    Somebody's broken heart
    And a washed-out dream
    (washed-out dream)
    They follow the pattern of the wind, you see
    'Cause they got no place to be
    That's why I'm starting with me

    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'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 that change!

    I'm starting with the man in the mirror
    I'm asking him to change his ways
    (better change!)
    No message could have been any clearer
    (if you wanna make the world a better place)
    (take a look at yourself and then make the change)
    (you gotta get it right, while you got the time)
    ('cause when you close your heart)

    You can't close your your mind!
    (then you close your mind!)

    That man, that man, that man, that man
    With that man in the mirror
    (man in the mirror, oh yeah!)
    That man, that man, that man
    I'm asking him to change his ways
    (better change!)
    You know that man
    No message could have been any clearer
    If you wanna make the world a better place
    (if you wanna make the world a better place)
    Take a look at yourself and then make a change
    (take a look at yourself and then make a change)

    Gonna feel real good now!
    Oh no, no no

    I'm gonna make a change
    It's gonna feel real good!
    Come on!
    (change)

    Just lift yourself
    You know
    You've got to stop it yourself!
    (yeah! make that change!)
    I've got to make that change today!
    (man in the mirror)
    You got to
    You got to not let yourself
    Brother
    (yeah! make that change!)
    You know
    I've got to get that man, that man
    (man in the mirror)
    You've got to
    You've got to move! Come on! Come on!
    You got to stand up! Stand up! Stand up!
    (yeah make that change)
    Stand up and lift yourself now!
    (man in the mirror)

    (yeah make that change)
    Gonna make that change
    Come on!
    (man in the mirror)
    You know it!
    You know it!
    You know it!
    You know
    (change)
    Make that change
