    I love Cry. The bass at the end is killer but it's mixed awfully. The drums could have had a lot more bottom end if it wasn't mixed with a 2001 audience in mind in an era of Nsync and Britney.

    As for weak I would say Girlfriend, Don't Walk Away never did anything for me. Never understood the tracks chosen for Invincible considering the strong material he had in the can. Of course the label has say over the tracklisting and the artist only has so much power

    Beautiful girl....i hate it i hate i hate it. The only Michael Jackson song ever in my life where i would change it or cover my ears & i really tried hard to appreciate that song but... everything about it is just...2000watts, shout, clhga, little susie & will you be there intros, l.s should've started with the little girl & will you be there should start from the 2nd choir intro. Wasn't really too fond of give into me but ive grown to like it. It used to be like who is it's evil twin to me (if that makes since to anybody), sooml had to grow on me. I wish he changed it on the bad & dangerous tour. Childhood as well had to grow on me & i love it to pieces. Ironically I have my phases when i might where a song out & get sick of it & then I'll come bk to it & it'll sound brand new again.

    I relate to this so much I used to twin up She Drives Me Wild and Can't Let Her Get Away as well as 2 Bad and Tabloid Junkie. I can't really explain why but it just made sense to me, probably due to their placements on the album, their underrated nature, and a (kinda) similar sound.

    Wish he would have finished that one too. The melody is fantastic.

    I like The Lost Children as its one that MJ truly worked on from top to bottom rather than the majority of tracks on the album that were presented to him close to finish, etc rock my world and butterflies. You can feel the passion and inspiration on that one.

    CLHGA is great, but I feel it goes on a bit too long. That feels like a 3 minute ish song that's been stretched out to about 5 minutes.

    A few of the tracks on dangerous were too long but it's very of its time that I ssue, artists filling every minute of the CD running time. If it wasn't filled with music it probably would have been filled with segues or skits such as was common at the time, ala Prince or Janet

    I think it should've been a slow song...imo i really wish he would've added joy. He thought it was too "mushy". I can't wait for the day to come when I hear his REAL version. Not the version teddy uploaded. I really wish he would've gave us the real track. How can you had talked to this man, produced him, was a friend & don't know his voice & don't remember the demo he gave to him to release. Man!

    Default Can't Let Her Get Away

    Can't Let Her Get Away is my favorite song on the album. On a few songs, I like a remix better than the album versions like In The Closet & Who Is It. Can't Let Her Get Away got quite a bit of airplay on R&B stations too. I still wonder why The Jacksons chose it to perform during their concerts in recent years. Seems kinda random.

    The Lost Children is my favorite song on that album

    I know some fans criticize songs like TLC and HTW for being ''too sappy'' but one of the things I love about Michael is that he was never afraid to make music that would be considered ''uncool''

    To me, Heal the World is like a crappy imitation of We are the World. They had similar chord progressions, similar melodies, similar structures and the same meaning. It's kinda like how For All Time is to Human Nature. CLHGA is similar to She Drives Me Wild, but SDMW is more catchy to me.

    I can't believe Beautiful Girl is mentioned in this thread! I love this song! This is like my 4th favourite MJ song.

    OMG I also can't believe so many people picked Girlfriend, it's such a nice song to me. If I have to choose, then Girlfriend definitely tops The Girl Is Mine.
