i live in sweden and there is a great rapper from sweden named Lazee who is big here in sweden and he got in contact with quincy jones (quincy jones wife is swedish and there son lives here in sweden) Lazee is actully about to reccord a album with quincy jones. Lazee asked quincy how many songs michael reccorded for thriller and quincy said they reccorded 180 songs!
WOW.. if that is true, then im spechless..
^^ yeah michael always said that.. now i understand why he took 4-5 years break between each album.. recording that many songs must be exhausting at some point. and you need to get back your insperation and creativity not to mention.
