    I don't need to just run and hide, I need to be sent into EXILE because I don't really like Childhood either and I'm not that keen on Speechless. I'm in a confessional mood tonight! I feel bad though because the songs that mean the most to Michael are often my least favourite ones.

    Actually, now that I've seen this I've realised that, by comparison, I have absolutely no reason to feel guilty. Please now throw all your rocks in Girl's direction!:cheeky:

    Speechless is one of the greatest songs on the CD. No doubt there. Burn This Disco Out is kinda "meh". Same with Smile, he's a bit TOO emotional in that one imo, Leave Me Alone is great, especially combined with that fantastic video. Very aggressive and punchy! But Lady of My Life is where he really shines in my opinion. Fantastic vocal efforts, great vibrant synths and a very crisp production overall. It's a brilliant closer for the album.

    Dangerous is a good song, but drags on a bit too long.

    Threatened all the way for me Such a BANG the album closes and indeed I truly loved it that they didn't forget this masterpiece in TII I love the 'dark' message in it and absolutely love the Bass

    Threatened - a rock track with synth, is the most solid and speaking closing I've heard of an album so far.

    The first day I heard this song in my car, when I was playing the album CD, I literally had to pull over on the side of the road and just sit still and listen to it. I think I replayed it about four times before I got back on the bitumen. I still think about that day. It was sunset and the sky was red, pink and purple behind the darkening trees. Michael spoke a lot about "the magic" of his music......that was one of the many days when I actually could feel that magic.

    I had a similar experience with "will you be there". I was about 10 when I hear dit on the radio and it was the first time I cried because of a song and I didn't even understand the lyrics then. I was also ashamed that I cried as I was an "action" kid, tears were for the weak :-D

    Burn this disco out. I think it's the best song to close an album. This song has to be on the end, because after this song, there's no more disco left
