    I do like the vocals, but the instrumental sounds to much like a demo for me. I think I read somewhere that the song was reworked later, would like to hear this reworked instrumental version or a modern remix version of it.

    I was disappointed the first time I heard it. But I somewhat appreciate it.
    It's OK for a filler. But it's weird that's at the start of a disc.

    It took a while to grow on me, but I do like it.
    It's vintage Michael - a real funky bop!
    As always, his electric vocals carry the entire tune.

    “Don’t Be Messin’ ‘Round” is akin to listening to the demos of “Don’t Stop ‘til You Get Enough” or “Billie Jean” — I like what’s there and I can hear the potential, but there’s still a lot of space to be filled. The version Korgnex shared is FAR better than the Bad 25 cut in my opinion; the production feels more thought out and propulsive.

    I’d love to hear later versions to see how it morphed over the years (specifically any of the cuts Neff-U did in 2008).

    I can enjoy the song as a demo. - I am sure had MJ finalized it, it would have been great.

    I would be really glad if you rated or/and commented the videos. Thanks

    One of Michael's weakest songs (demos) for sure

    It's not my thing. I'm more for harder, more aggressive tracks/vocals/instrumentals and that just isn't really there on "Don't Be Messin' Round" -- like someone else said it sounds more like an Off the Wall outtake than a Bad one. I'd agree that it doesn't really have the same feel as the other Bad tracks, and I can understand why it was cut. Of course, it is a demo, and so I'd like to hear a demo of, say, "Bad" or another album track for comparison to see what direction this demo could've gone in.

    DBMA was a refreshing sound at the time. It's not a cut that I go back to often. It's got that same scatting at the end that he did on State of Shock with Freddie as the song fades out.
