    I've always thought this as well, BTM is a very powerful MJ song and one with the most potential, I have played it for friends who are not even MJ fans and they LOVED the song- the most out of all the other songs on the album! When they release singles they release different mixes and one without or reduced BG crowd noise will surely be a hit. BTM is a classic Michael Jackson tune, catchy, heavy bass mixed with an energetic, pumped up Michael Jackson singing his heart out with spot on vocals.

    They should move on to the next project imo. And this time make it right

    No way should they release Monster - they've done enough damage already!
    Hollywood, BTM, AD, BOY, anything but Monster...

    Whatever side of the fence you sit on regarding the authenticity of the vocals, they don't sound like Michael and will only do more damage to this album and Michael's legacy.

    2 weeks since it's release, and I have yet to see the album in any stores. PATHETIC!

    In some charts Hold My Hand is still climbing, so the next single doesn't have to be rushed in my opinion. I think the end of January should be fine. I hope a nice video will be made for it.

    I keep saying that Behind The Mask should be a single

    But sadly i can't see it happening because it's sounds way to different to anything that's being played in the mainstream music scene right now and heaven for bid that something should sound different.

    I agree with you that Behind The Mask is a great song, maybe the best on the album IMO. But I'm not sure how well it will do as a single.

    That said. Here in Norway, one of the radio stations for the younger generation is playing this song several times a day.

    What are they waiting for ?

    The release of Hollywood tonight or Monster is a Necessity and it's urgent !
    Maybe they are waiting for the time that some of the ___itchin' and moaning about every single decision will stop. No matter what is released the complaints will start versus just accepting the decision and enjoying the music (which has definitely become a novel idea, it seems).

    Of course, if this is what they are really waiting for, then I guess we won't get any more singles released.

    There are some really great songs on the CD; people don't have to like them all (I have my favorites) but spending more time putting down this or that song and those in charge of the release does no good; it just shows that the fan base can't be pleased and can't understand that everything can't go to target hardcore fans.

    no point releasing another single without a video. or it not being finished in time like with HMH which is what some fans are asking for by saying there should be another single release now.ontop of no radio promo. bottom line with no mj to promote it a single release can only do so much like HMH

    HMH is still doing well across Europe - despite what some people with little actual knowledge would have us believe.

    #3 on the Euro 200 charts!

    If they release BTM, I think they should cut out the sax opening. Something needs to be cut, since it's over 5 minutes long. They could also cut out the woman's awful singing at the very end. For HT, they need to cut out Taryll and remix it with just Michael. THe repetition by Taryll of "Hollywood," etc at the end of the song just lacks energy. The rest of the song is great. Just my 2 cents.
