    Interesting way of putting it, but I think I agree. (Mostly).

    Yes, if I was adding another song, it would definitely be "Behind the Mask".

    I have not heard Slapstick, Trouble or Nite Line.

    Are you also saving up unreleased songs you have not heard yet?

    Nite Line. It's not the greatest song, but it's a sweet little song and it had that early 80s sound which would fitted perfectly on the Thriller album.

    I'd leave the track listing alone. 9 is fine, but I would have included the full version of Lady In My Life.

    Cool thread that needs to be bumped lol
    I would chose Carousel as I think it’s such a sweet song and it’s got that 80’s feel. I love the story too. It’s one of those sugar sweet songs of people from different worlds as she’s from a world of popcorn and candy lol
    though I really love Behind the mask I think it fits the Michael album better.
    ‘I agree with the song of lady in my life should have been the demo or the version with more lyrics in it.

    I think Thriller was perfect with 9 tracks. If anything I would have replaced Baby Be Mine with Carousel or Behind The Mask. But other than that it's just an album of hits for me and adding one of the outtakes would have made it just a little weaker over all. I think the song choice on Thriller is almost 100% spot on from the unreleased stuff we know of.

    Niteline! Such a great song.

    Behind The Mask probably too.
    I hope we ever get to hear the untouched original version. (The "update" mess on the Michael album is unforgiveable.)

    Thriller was originally a 10 track album! The "missing" tenth track was Hot Street which can be found on a very, very rare first LP master (done by Bernie Grundman at Allen Zentz MAstering in November 1982). The problem with this test LP was its odd sound due to its (inappropriate) extended play time on both sides.

    i always wondered why 'hot street' wasn't remixed and released posthumously, the way that 'love never felt so good' was? it wasn't even added to 'the ultimate collection' or 'thriller 25'. compared to most of the outtakes/demos lying around, I think it has the most hit potential. that being said, I can't imagine it being a closer for 'thriller'.. does anyone know the link between this and 'slapstick'? some say that 'slapstick' was a demo for 'hot street', but his vocals sound so much more complete and energised than on 'hot street'. could it be the other way around?
