    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!
