    ^Didnt Michael only co-produce his own self written songs on OTW and Thriller? And I thought he had to push for that credit too.
    (Going by memory. Could be wrong).

    I think he didn't produce anything on the original pressing of Thriller- at least my LP doesn't mention it, or my CD for that matter

    That would make sense. If he pushed to now do every song on Bad, regardless of who wrote it, then what is written in Bad 25 makes sense.

    A subtitle on the back of recent Thriller pressings now mentions Michael's co-production. None of the songs have been altered since the original pressing either...

    The original didn't, as I remember, but that changed that year-thought the "fight" had something to do with the fact that the final versions didn't change much from the demos he made from the home studio-the Grammys in 84 even gave him credit for production.

    I think it's a great song and I listen to it all the time, I had no idea there were people who hate it, lol. It definitely doesn't fit with the rest of the album though.

    I personally think it just gets crap talked about it cuz it's two greats working together and it's expected to be 'double great' which is an unfair expectation.. It's a great song, great vocals! There are only so many topics 2 male straight singers can sing together about and still be interesting. lol!

    Nothing! - I love this song, Michael and Stevie two of my favourite legends. The song has a nice beat and melody and Michael and Stevie sound great. I can not understand why this song does not get the love it deserves. I mean it is betterthan Liberian girl and Speed Demon, sometimes I actually skip the first 3 tracks of Bad and get straight to this song!

    I think the opening post of this thread is quite polemical - probably on purpose. Not liking it or not thinking it's one of his best ones is not the same like actually hating it.

    I for one learned to appreciate it more and more when my fandom progressed in the '90s. It's still not on the same level with Smooth Criminal or Man In The Mirror but I prefer it over I Just Can't Stop Loving You for example.

    I'll have to admit that I often skip the song BAD, not because I don't like it.. It's great, but I think when I first became a huge fan it was the song I listened to most.. I would watch Moonwalker and dance to Badder over and over again! lol...

    Just Good Friends is an average song to say the least. There's nothing average in Michael and Stevie, the track didn't make them justice.

    I just find the song very average. I haven't heard it in ages.
