    Love it, but not three exclamation points, just one :P There are better demos of course, but a demo is a demo and it's Michael! His adlibs make it great. :D

    I'll just repost what I posted in another thread:

    To me, hearing a demo is an honour from Michael....I think this because he was SUCH a perfectionist. I don't think he ever really liked being seen in the process, y'know? That's why we get SO excited when we see him in rehearsal, or studio, or in the middle of the creation of the magic....It's because it's so rare (although, not as rare since he's been gone)....He always wanted us to see the FINAL product....Like a magician doesn't want anyone to know HOW the trick is done...


    So a demo to me is a beautiful thing....We get to see where his musical genius head was going with something, and it's a great thing to hear.....I will listen to a demo over a finished product ANY DAY....unless it's finished by Michael, of course ;)

    I think it's a great song, lots of different sounds going on, but they all blend together well...Michael sounds happy and I love his ad libs and overall vocals...And Michael playing the piano is a real treat :wild:
    So so true. Thanks for the post. I can just see him playing that piano smiling that great smile of his. He really sounds like he is soo happy and relaxed, it just warms my heart knowing that.

    And of course I LOVE IT!!! I know it is a demo but I'll tell you personally it is better than a lot of those songs out today with that electronic, artificial sound. This is so pure and authentic and so much fun! The beat is stuck in my head and as another poster mentioned his/her kid loves that song and I can imagine why. Can't get enought of that rhythmn, only Michael could creat something so magical. And his adlibs are so precious, ahhh love it!!!
    You are FOREVER MICHAEL - WE ARE FOREVER

    I love it. To hear pure and soft Michael's voice is a real great joy for me. I can't understand who could hate it.

    It's the difference between 'the hottest beats' and someone who makes actual music. Lovely. And similar to Arklove I feel honored to be given the small look into the way he worked.

    I love it and the fact that we fans can hear it in its' raw state. How awesome would the finished product have been. Truly the master is Michael.

    It's different from anything on Bad. I couldn't see it fitting on that album, so I can see why it was left off. However, I do love the song a lot! For a demo, I think it's wonderful! Michael's demos alone beat any of that new garbage they call "music" nowadays that is out there. It's just simply amazing. He amazes me. He truly is a genius. This song is just another great masterpiece of his work to add to the vault.
    He had an incredible amount of love to give and not enough people to give it to.
    I love you, Michael.

    I understand why a few doesn't really like it. - That's fair enough.

    But 1 person HATE IT?? - That's weird to me...

    What's to hate in the demo? A nice beat, MJ vocals - MJ piano - a nice groove. I don't see how you can HATE IT ??

    I agree, though it's not hard to guess who that one person is.

    I love it, not my favorite demo I've heard from him, that's still Fall Again, but this is close.
    You inspired me to dream big. You taught me to love unconditionally. You taught me to do unto others, what thou does to self. And most of all you taught me not judge until the truth sets on free. And because of it all...I Love You, Michael. And I always will.

    I love Michael's demo's and this one I enjoy very much for the creativeness, the rhythm, the lightness, the adlibs, the warmth of his voice, the warmth of the latin-jazz-r&b and what not meltingpot :). It makes me smile, makes me dance, gives me joy.
    (First demo I enjoyed so much was for "Workin' Day And Night" but this one is maybe even better for my taste :))

    I like it a lot. Both simple and intricate. I think it matches well enough the 'bad' era, even if it might not have fitted on the album.

    Does anyone know more about the way such demos were made ? Apparently MJ played the piano (sounds like there're 3 different piano layers there). I suppose he played on a basic rhythm track recorded before.
    What I'm curious about is the point of recording such elaborate demos that are not meant to be the final product. A demo is generally produced by a single person to demonstrate a song to the rest of the band, or by an unknown band to try to get signed. Here we have a fully orchestrated demo.
    Did MJ need to do record such elaborate demos so he could hear how they sounded before making choices for the album ?
