    I have been listening to this (and watching this video) for the last couple of days-I don't know if I heard it back in the day and just forgot about it, or never heard it before, but to listen to Michael spit out those lyrics in such an aggressive, overtly sexual way-in his full adult voice-and with Diana there-is almost embarrassing to me. I feel like I stumbled into an intensely passionate intimate moment or something here-Jeez-this is really some song!

    I voted for Centipede and Do The Bartman. Eaten Alive has sexy background vocals, I agree but I'm not a fan of Diana Ross, the solo performer, I like more the songs she did with The Supremes.

    I also love Lisa It's Your Birthday but not The Simpsons version, Michael's voice is unmistakably gorgeous.

    I say Muscles. I never knew about "You're the One," so romantic!


    I once had a thousand desires, but in my one desire to know you, all else melted away.

    You must not look at the Jacksons section. I posted it in the productions thread here.

    They never performed it (yet!! YET!!) but I also LOVE "The Way You Love Me" that Michael wrote for Hanson :3 I'm a huge Hanson fan and it's one of my missions in life to see them perform it.

    I'm pretty sure that was a rumour started by Roger Friedman?

    I don't caaaaare I still must believe it in my headcanon forever and ever. Based on the time he wrote it and their sound at the time as well, it would definitely ~work.

    Hah! According to copyright, it was written in 2004 and not in fact during the beginning of the 2000's. But, if that works for their sound at the time, live your life girl :P

    Hanson was being yanked around by Island Def Jam at the time, so it's not surprising if people weren't aware their sound was changing/maturing (plus the album they did release in 2004 was a lot like that). I also wonder if the copyright was just never submitted before the demo version of the song was released on the Ultimate Collection since that's the year it came out. PLUS they worked together on WMCIG (kinda, but Hanson are on both Spanish and English versions) so even if they didn't meet, by 2001 Hanson was kind of old news but in my head Michael probably thought they were awesome because Middle of Nowhere is a straight-up funk/Motown pop album and people don't even know lol

    Ah, the joy of hearing Michael say things like I'll be your slave & crawl all over me, rip my shirt.. not to mention gotta do her.. geez :heat:

    Anyway, I do kinda like Eaten Alive & Muscles - can't believe Michael wrote that one, lol.. but voted for Fly Away (don't really like what Rebbie did with it but love Michael's version!)

    Didn't he also co-write Satisfy You with Bryan Loren? I like that one too

    Yes and I like it! My favorites (from the poll list) are Centipede and Muscles.

    ^'my only wish is to satisfy you'... ugh. But yeah, it really is quite a nice song.. I read he actually recorded it during Dangerous sessions but didn't like it enough to use it. Still hope the demo is out there and we'll get to hear it some day!
