    I have absolutely no idea how Hot Street goes, one of those tracks alongside Fall Again, On The Line, In The Back that I heard once and never tried again.

    A bit like black pudding.

    One of his songs I particularly love to sing and move along to ...

    Melody, Michael´s phrasing and pronounciation, instrumentation ... :dancin:


    ... and I will never ever be able to unhear "Friday Spider" lol
    "I´m the temple, you can´t hurt me,
    ..I found peace within myself"

    ...Michael Jackson - Jam

    Nothing else from Thriller to Dangerous offcuts deserves a place on the holiest of holys (a Michael Jackson solo album), but Sunset Driver does.

    A perfect piece of soul-funk-disco that Off The Wall excelled at.

    The da-da-da-da-da-da-da bits as he sings along with the keyboards slays me every time.
    Seriously though, I love when that happens. Superfly Sister hit me like that one day years after its release. I was like damn! This right here is funky!

    It took me a long time to warm up to Sunset Driver too. I didn't like it at first but now I love it. It's a fantastic piece of work. However, Off The Wall is a perfect album for me. I know many don't like Girlfriend and It's The Falling In Love but I love every single song on the album so I wouldn't swap any song with Sunset Driver no matter how brilliant and catchy it might be.

    Yes, that acoustic version of SOOML is absolute heavenly. I wish MJ had done a concert where he performed just acoustic versions of some of his classics. That would have been epic. -

    Yeah, its the only version I play now. MJs spine tingling voice and an acoustic guitar. Timeless and perfect.

    And Matty, yes please check out SD again, think it'll be right up your (hot) street.

    Yep, in terms of rereleases I'd like an stripped adult album like they did with young Michael.

    Re-produced versions of the following, with the voice and guitar, violins where required etc.

    Liberian Girl
    Will You Be There
    She's Out Of My Life
    Smile
    Little Susie
    Speechless
    Lady In My Life
    IJCSLY
    Heal The World
    Stranger In Moscow


    Not that I would change the originals in any way but would love these versions. Plus on stripped back records you always hear little nuances you may have previously missed.

    I really hope there are some more stripped back demos tucked away gathering dust somewhere in the vault. Imagine Little Susie with just a piano arrangement or Liberian Girl accompanied by just a simple acoustic guitar.

    We can but dream...
    That would be perfection, think I'd call the album 'Strings of Pop'


    Sort of works

    Agree it's so funky and better than those. Love BTDO and would keep that.

    I haven't listened to it in awhile, but I love the song. It's such a strong outtake, shame it was hidden on the TUC.

    I would definitely take it over Girlfriend, Sunset Driver fits with sound of the record a lot more

    If Girlfriend had the original middle eighth no, but it cuts the Wings-iest part of the song.
