    I heard something about MJ being embarassed about it later. Don't know why. It's cute.

    Another thing I really hate - and I'm glad MJ did not have this habit - album intros and outros and interludes. Man, those are annoying!
    Haha this happen so frequently esp in Rap music.. Marvin Gaye also used to do this. It just kills the flow of the album

    It wasn't just the remaster, it went in later copies of the original release.

    True about Marvin. I always thought Diana Ross kinda started that-with her 'Touch Me in the Morning' days.

    I love IJCSLY, PYT, and DSTYGE. The rest-not so much.

    And I love 'Liberian Girl'-does that count as a spoken intro?

    Yea it does! Actually Liberian Girl has the best intro outta any MJ song. The atmosphere and the mysticism is so good. I love that

    I really enjoy spoken intro's. My favorite is the one from IJCSLY, for obvious reasons. I like them all really.

    DSTYGE- yay
    PYT- yay
    IJCSLY-yay
    In The Closet- nay (single edit is better)
    Black Or White- nay (I prefer the radio edit)
    You Rock My World- nay

    You could also consider Privacy a spoken intro...even though it's not Michael talking....which I would also give a nay to anyways.

    Some aren't spoken, just long instead but whatevs.

    DSTYGE - Yay

    PYT - Yay
    IJCSLY - Nay (I find it a bit... awkward?? especially at first. Idk I don't really like it)
    In The Closet - Yay
    Heal the World - Indifferent
    Will You Be There - Yay
    Black Or White - Yay
    History - Yay
    Little Susie - Yay
    You Rock My World - Nay

    I often still listen to them (Except IJCSLY, since the only spoken intro version I have is on record, but I do listen to it then) with YRMW being the one I often skip. I like the BoW one quite a bit.

    Also, some of these songs (Will You Be There, History, Little Susie) are ones where I feel the long intros are crucial to the overall experience.

    I don't remember the last time I heard the YRMW intro. Absolutely awful.

    DSTYGE has to be the best. When that intro is missing (Number Ones version I'm looking at you) I just wince.

    IJCSLY is a little weird but that's why I love it. I sequenced it back in on my iPod.

    Black or White I only play the radio edit of that song.

    Little Susie and WYBT are a different kettle of fish, but for the most complete vision of these two genius songs you can't not have it.

    I don't think it adds a great deal. I don't really have any strong feelings either way.

    The whole Number Ones album is nothing more than a collection of butchered radio edits....

    I'm not sure I've listened to it since I bought it.

    There's a full thread to be had in radio edits,but worse one ever is Who Is It. The best two minutes of the song just wiped.

    Earth Song isn't too bad, they did the best they could.
