    Cool Tabloid Junkie - Bridge: What is MJ singing/mumbling?

    I opened a thread on this on MaxJax before it got closed down (with no legit replies).

    I just can't seem to hear what he is singing in some parts, it's almost impossible with no a cappella but I'm sure someone with some skills can something out of it.

    It's from around 3:05 to 3:22, please help me with it and listen to it in best quality possible. To help out, here's a filtered version, in an attempt to get the vocals a little clearer: http://soundcloud.com/justanotherbri...wall/tb-bridge


    Help a fan out, this could also be interesting

    This is what I have gotten out of it:

    Everybody some things about them
    Everybody got some freak to pop

    Everybody got some vicious about them
    Everybody got something to stalk

    ...some problem
    Everybody talking about endless phantom

    We gotta do something about them
    Can't a brother talk about the news problem

    Nah, those don't even make sense. I think he was just ad-libing random things... MJ style, as he sometimes does. Speaking his very own language, if you will. :lol:

    Nah, I def. think he is singing SOMETHING. The line "Everybody got some vicious about them" is def. sung.

    Ignore that

    Anyway, no one knows? Is it beacuse it's too hard to hear, or simply not interesting for the fans?

    ^^ I often wondered what he said in that bridge too...I personally think it's a mix of gibberish and actual words...It's like he sings actual words, and then slips into *****nese...His ad libbing where he actually doesn't say anything...I doubt anyone actual knows what he sang other than Michael himself lol

    Bumping this for fun because I was just Googling this again, and there's basically no one on the internet who has tried to solve what on earth Michael is singing in the bridge here... Anyone is free to give it a try. My lyrics in the first post a gibberish, although the line "Everybody got some vicious about them" is def. there

    We need a capellas... Songs from HIStory are especially interesting to me in this sense - in Money, for example, he calls out people by name, and you can barely hear it!
    I'll try to ask Brad Sundberg about it when I attend his seminar. Maybe he has a capellas.

    Here is what I got. As I said the last time I transcribed some lyrics, the best technique is to listen to snippets over and over again until you get it. Using headphones on the max volume is necessary, though not necessarily healthy! I think it does some justice to MJ that we are trying to figure out what he really says, as it seems to me that internet lyrics and even the printed booklets are just totally wrong in some cases. I think he at least deserves the respect of accurate lyrics, come on.

    (In the news today, from the strange and weird fact file. Singer Michael Jackson sleeps in an oxygen chamber. The singer says that the hyperbaric chamber has the benefits of reversing the aging process.)

    (From the news desk, singer Michael Jackson has a shrine to Elizabeth Taylor in his Encino home. We'll have that and more, after this. Thank you.)

    (We've got more ahead. Singer Michael Jackson has made an offer of two million dollars for the skeletal remains of the Elephant Man. Join us next for the news.)

    (This just in. Singer Michael Jackson has a shrine to Elizabeth Taylor in his Encino home.)

    (Michael Jackson's in the news again. This time, an incredible revelation.)

    (Michael Jackson/in the news today/Michael/Elizabeth Taylor will take Vincent/going to play Michael Jackson/dined by candlelight/at our next/have a legion/home of)

    Hoo (16x)

    Ah, spread your lie to break the one you hate
    Shaken up, their life you confiscate
    Assassinate and mute them
    Well
    It's the hounding media in hysteria
    With the news for you to run to break
    Judge and kill
    Expose the CIA
    You be tellin' the press to spot what's
    The black mystery in all human history

    It's slander
    You say it's not a sword
    But with your pen you torture men
    You crucify the Lord
    And you don't have to read it (read it)
    And you don't have to eat it (eat it, oh)
    To buy it is to feed it (feed it)
    Then why do we keep foolin' ourselves

    Just because you read it in a magazine
    Or see it on the TV screen
    Don't make it factual (Yeah)
    Though everybody wants to read all about it
    Just because you read it in a magazine
    Or see it on a TV screen
    Don't make it factual
    Actual
    They say he's homosexual

    In the hood, frame him if you could
    Shoot to kill, they'll blame him if you will
    If he dies, sympathize
    As though love's first right is to blame the self-righteousness
    In the black, they stab me in the back
    In the face, to lie and shame the race
    Heroin and Marilyn is the headline story of all your glory day

    It's slander
    With the words you use
    You're a parasite in black and white
    Do anything for news
    And you don't go out and buy it (buy it)
    And they won't glorify it ('fied it, oh)
    To read it, sanctified it ('fy it)
    Then why do we keep foolin' ourselves (baby)
    Just because you read it in a magazine (baby)
    Or see it on the TV screen
    Don't make it factual (yeah, oh)
    Everybody wants to lead all about it
    Just because you read it in a magazine
    Or see it on the TV screen
    Don't make it factual
    See, but everybody wants to believe all about it (oh, release me)
    Just because you read it in a magazine (somebody release me)
    Or see it on a TV screen
    Don't make it factual (believe it, baby, see)
    But everybody wants to believe all about it (baby, believe me, baby)
    Just because you read it in a magazine (believe, baby)
    Or see it on a TV screen (believe it, baby)
    Don't make it factual
    Actual
    She's blonde and she's bisexual

    (Just sixty seconds and new Michael Jackson story/Now the revelation/He's new wave, just calls him "Biggie"/Jackson said, I was sorry/New story ahead/What is it/Reporting, from Puerto Rico)

    Everybody got someone to think about
    Don't everybody got some food to throw
    Everybody got some vicious talk
    Don't everybody got some news today
    Ah, bah, bah, bah bah
    Everybody talk about the end of their idol
    We've got those who accept it from them
    Can't stop anybody from it-then-who's-to-blame but them

    (Got a story in Encino/Now a story from the wackier side of the news. Michael Jackson's pet chimpanzee Bubbles can be rented./The centerpiece of the property/thirty million dollars/Michael Jackson's private ranch in Santa Barbara/Sunday, February 19 and 20th/in a wedding date in a restaurant in Gary to cry/the many are Jackson's longtime friend Donald Trump/incriminating them in beating and torturing)

    Scandal
    With the words you use
    You're a parasite in black and white
    Do anything for news
    And you don't go out and buy it (buy it)
    And they won't glorify it ('fy it)
    To read it sanctified it ('fies it)
    Then why do we keep foolin' ourselves
    Slander
    You say it's not a sin
    But with your pen you torture men
    But why do we keep foolin' ourselves (baby)

    Just because you read it in a magazine (believe it baby)
    Or see it on the TV screen
    Don't make it factual (baby)
    Though everybody wants to read all about it (yeah, oh)
    Just because you read it in a magazine
    Or see it on the TV screen
    Don't make it factual (so you better believe)
    But everybody wants to read all about it (oh, yeah, baby)
    Just because you read it in a magazine (baby)
    Or see it on the TV screen (believe it baby)
    Don't make it factual (see, Sunday Times got a friend of mine)
    Just because you read it in a magazine (baby, 'mebody release me)
    Or see it on the TV screen (believe baby)
    Don't make it factual (better believe, yeah yeah)
    Just because you read it in a magazine (baby, yeah yeah)
    Or see it on the TV screen (baby, yeah yeah)
    Don't make it factual (believe it baby)
    Actual (oh oh)
    You're so damn disrespectable
