    Default 'Money' should be a single now

    Michael should have a voice today... I wished 'Money' was released in some way. Could be a lyric video or something.
    At least it should blast out of our own speakers.

    So you call it trust
    But I say it's just
    In the devil's game
    Of greed and lust

    They don't care
    They'd do me for the money
    They don't care
    They use me for the money

    Great idea. How about clips of Wade and rather than a lyric video how about quotes like 'Cleared by 10 year FBI investigation' etc.

    Great idea but even better idea would be to release Innocent Man.

    That would be a great idea. Especially with Tabloid Junkie as a B-side to attack all those tabloid rubbish media.

    Honestly though, someone should start a campaign to get Leave Me Alone to #1.
    Would be a real FU to the haters.

    It would be great if fans got any one of these songs to number 1 on iTunes:

    Money
    Leave Me Alone
    Scream

    But especially Money, and then Scream...

    Money - personally one of my faves since 95.
    Tabloid Junkie - again. Brilliant.

    Of the two I think Money could be the most successful in 2019 with a few minor tweaks.

    But a "single" is a dated concept. BOTH songs are already available right now and neither are charting. In fact no MJ song is charting Top40 anywhere.

    If they officially "released" a "single" it would get NO radio support right now, possibly no TV station support, so the fans would have to make it a success on their own and there just aren't enough to make an impact IMHO.

    The only way the MJ Estate would get any traction for a single would be with something really attention grabbing or controversial in the music video. I can't see them putting a new video out or running a huge promo campaign to get attention.

    sorry guys, I think this is a non-starter.
    BUT of course we can all stream MJ's music as much as we like.
    Before this documentary was announced I rarely streamed MJ's music. Right now I have MJ's playlists playing on repeat on my spotify 24 HOURS PER DAY!

    that's one simple thing we can all do.

    Are you infected with the same disease of lust, gluttony and greed?
    Then watch the ones
    With the biggest smiles
    The idle jabbers
    Cuz they're the backstabbers

    These lyrics perfectly sum up Wade Robson and James Safechuck

    It could work if it was properly coordinated. For instance all uk fans buy or stream the song in the week leading up to the channel 4 showing. But it would need a strong PR campaign leading up to it and would have to be over a short period.

    Handwritten lyrics are online. Lyric-wise it's complete and by the way Michael created a song (chorus and melody first, then he'd figure out the lyrics) we can assume that it's a complete song

    Even if MJ wrote these several lyrics, I think this does not necessarily mean that he & his team really began working on that song.

    Besides, I have never read or heard any reliable piece of information that confirms the existence of that song.

    Personally, I highly doubt that the ‘Innocent Man’ song actually exists, even in a very early musical form.

    I don't think MJ ever recorded vocals for Innocent Man - hope I'm wrong of course.
    https://www.youtube.com/user/Ahess/videos - me dancing MJ - many years ago.

    I would be really glad if you rated or/and commented the videos. Thanks
