    In terms of what could've made it: I'm adamant Nite Line would've made the lineup. Carousel, although (from what I've heard) was the last track to get cut while almost being included. The song itself seems too ridiculous and corny to be on the track listing. Alas, 'Nite Line' seems like the perfect blend of Early 80's 'Breakout Star' MJ, a Catchy Title and Tune, and a Perfect 'Retro 80's' Feel.

    And for me personally, I wouldn't have included anything else. 9 was perfect. 'Thriller', for many, was like catching lightning in a bottle.

    Behind The Mask. I really think the rest of the thriller outtakes are rather weak

    The only version of "Behind The Mask" I know is the one on the "Michael" album and the production grates on my nerves. If it was produced in the "Thriller" style it would work. "Thriller" was perfect as it was. 9 Tracks. 9 Gems.

    I'd go with Carousel, I like the others but it is the most fitting song to the feel of Thriller. Behind The Mask to me would fit most on Bad if any album just by the feel of it.

    I'd pick Hot Street too, I like to leave albums on a high note, and this funky tune is just the ticket!

    Couldn't have put it any better. I'm still convinced there must be so much better material that failed to make the record

    If I were to guess which song they go with, it would be carousel..

    As much as I like behind the mask - carousel fits the sound of thriller much more..

    How am I just finding out about this section of the board?!

    'Hot Street' is the only song that matches the quality and style of the 7 singles. Yet at best, I can see it as a b side to 'Billie Jean'. As much as I'm not into 'Baby Be Mine' and 'Lady In My Life', messing with the tracklist in the slightest ruins the flow.

    I personally would be happy with a flawless collection of just the 7 singles.

    I think the album was fine with 9 songs, but if I was forced to add one, it'd be "Carousel". As others have said, it does fit the sound of Thriller more than the other outtakes that have been leaked/released. Makes sense, since it was replaced near the album's completion by "Human Nature".

    Either Behind The Mask or Nite Line. Although I love all of the Thriller outtakes these two are the only ones I think would fit into the Thriller album.
