    One of my favorite song...

    Michael once said “whatever I sing, that’s what I really mean. like, I’m singing a song, I don’t sing it if I don’t mean it.”, this was so important to him that he even quoted himself saying this as a child in his “HIStory” song.

    My point is that there is very little chance that “Who is it” was written by Michael as a love song, especially when knowing the love stories Michael had in his life…

    Now, we can notice the melody of “who is it” pre-chorus (“she promised me forever a day we would live as one, we made our vows we would live a life anew”) is the same as “price of fame” song pre-chorus (“father always told me you won’t live a quiet life if you’re reaching for fortune and fame”)

    note also that “price of fame” was about the counterparts of success, and was meant to appear on “Bad” album, which Michael expected to oversell his previous “Thriller” album…. “Who is it” is about doubts and disappointment and was recorded for the album that just came after “Bad”…

    so my bet is that behind the lyrics, Michael is singing about fame, not about a girl… definitely one of my favorite song.
