    TBH, I really wish the sax wasn't on the song. Was it on the original version or was it bought in by John McClain?

    The rest of the song sounds so contemporary but the sax solo really ages it. Who has a sax solo in 2010?

    I kind of agree, although part of me really loves it. Torn.

    I agree with you
    Not that I like that modern flow, but the sax was really unnecessary. It just doesn't fit the edited version, although the solo in the beginning is very beautiful
    Same with the accordion in Much Too Soon

    god what did you expect? it's john mcclain.

    he already managed to make "this is it" a disgrace. did you really expect someone, who's career highlight was "you are my life" on invincible, can deliver 2 great tracks?

    they should've let teddy riley finish of these 2 or neff-u, tricky or lenny.

    but you know, john mcclain is an estate executor, and he LOVES to put his name big on display with everywhere MJ related.

    I agree. The sax both helps and hurts the song to me. It puts a jazzy retro throwback feel to the song. But it also clashes with the computerized instrumentation and sound effects in the song too.

    ^ Agreed. I like the solo, but it doesn't fit with the current sound of today's pop.

    (Hmm, Jamiroquai is/are good at blending old & new sounds and it works.)

    Why the hell didn't they put STTR on the new album, that would have been perfect for today.

    I'm torn also, I hated the sax at first, no instrument says mid 1980s more than a saxophone (Careless Whisper, True etc) but I'm starting to like it. Maybe because the rest of the song is so damn great that it doesn't matter. A guitar solo would have fitted better though.

    All i can say about that is THANK GOD! We don't want MJ to be fitting in with the sound of today's current music because i think it's just crap.

    MJ needs to distance himself from today's mainstream music sound as much as possible
