    Because almost all songs that have been mentioned here have been officially released, except Serious Effect and Hot Street.

    And some like Someone Put Your Hand Out, For All Time and We've Had Enough have been released by Michael himself.

    Best of Joy

    I'm so in love with this song.
    But one thing is unclear to me.
    Was it realy entirely recorded in 2008 or did MJ just recorded additional vocals then?

    Michael worked on it with Brad Buxer and Theron "Neff-U" Feemster before (don't know the exact year but some time before 2008). Then in 2008 when Michael was working with Michael Prince alone he wanted to revisit three songs. One of them was Best Of Joy and Michael recorded the whole song in 2008 with Michael Prince. Also what was recorded in those last sessions are "I Was The Loser" line for I Am A Loser (just that one line in the chorus) and I think one more song that was left un-named. Those were the very last recording sessions for Michael. Nothing was recorded in 2009 (except some material to be played "live" for This Is It). That is all according to Michael Prince.

    This is what I was thinking, too. Lol.

    Mine would be "Streetwalker", probably. Then there are some mysterious titles of songs that I've never actually heard, but would like to hear, like Michael McKellar and California Grass....if those songs actually exist.

    @OnirMj
    Thank you for that. Hopefully more Songs from the last years are complete enough for a release. Do you know something about "Adore You" or "Rocker"?

    This is a bit tricky for me because some songs are not as high on the list as they would be if they were actually finished.. So it's a two fold, I could judge by the rhythm, style, and what I can hear or do I include the audio quality that we are aware of?

    For example Men In Black sounds funky, cool rhythm, the vocal styling is on point.. Now the instruments used, that's where I lack real judgement. I can't tell what they are using for the 'hits' and how that would sound. The rhythm of the instrumental actually has similarities to 'Monkey Business' and if they use the same bass - that would bring life to the song far beyond what we hear on the leaked portion..

    The only reason why I'm giving it that much thought is the one critique I can give to some unreleased songs is a specific SOMETHING to the instrumental to pull it off the page a little more.. If that makes sense.. I sit there thinking, (as an example) this song is awesome, if finished and if that instrument was more of a bass sound over a sharp snapping sound - would be perfect!


    I'll digress, some songs that have good potential or are great as is.. and yes, partially cuz it's top of mind right now..

    Men In Black
    It's A Family Thing
    Can't Get Your Weight Off of Me

    No and No.

    I recommend everyone to listen to this amazing interview. The questions could have been better but the amount of knowledge and mind blowing information Michael Prince shared in this interview is amazing.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyhcomSb9SA

    Just a tease: Did you know that Michael re-recorded some vocals for Stranger in Moscow and Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' in 2009 to be played during This Is It?
