    Smile 'Rock With You' - With, or Without the Handclaps?

    the original album pressings of 'off the wall' didn't have them. however, i always grew up with the single/video version, and later pressings which had them. that's the one I prefer. in fact, I'd say it's one of the defining characteristics of the song, that Michael enhances with his dancing. sounds kind of flat without it..

    which one do you prefer? with the handclaps, or without?

    I had no idea that the handclaps weren't in the original version - I always focus on the lovely string harmonies. (:
    That being said, I prefer the single version with the claps, I think it fills the short 'void' of sound (even though it's only a millisecond!)

    Handclaps are like cow bell.....you can never have too much!
