    Wow this is tough!!

    I'm going wit Speed Demon right now, only because of the flawless bridge and arrangement
    I think it's because there's more to think of when I think of Speed Demon, the Video, the look, and everything, but with WYWTOM, there's nothing that I can think of if that makes any sense, due to it having no single and no really mentions.

    I love Why You Wanna Trip On Me though, the vocals are so fierce and sharp, and the harmonies in the chorus are so gentle and clear. I've always loved and appreciated that contrast. Lyrically it's brilliant as well, the topics are still as relevant today 26 years later. These are some of the best lyrics on an MJ song that he had no hand in writing since Rod.

    Speed Demon definitely.

    Still grooving to it after nearly 30 years. Stupidly brilliant and crazily simple.

    I hovered over both and settled on WYWTOM!

    WYWTOM. That guitar at the beginning always tells me to rewind. Speed Demon... I have never really cared about it.
    For those of us who like living dangerously, this one is for you !

    Oh, this is a tricky one! I guess it depends on what mood I'm in. Like if I'm late for work and need to get there fast, safely ( Speed Demon); or If I feel like it's me against the world ( WYWTOM). Either way I only get through about half of each song before I'm fulfilled :chillin:

    Aye, final choice... Why You Wanna Trip On Me!! Way to funky and fresh to pass up!

    Speed Demon for me. - It's so funny and different. Funky.

    It always makes me happy and in a good mood.

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

    I chose the song no one really talks about lol. It's one with a 'message'
    I chose "Why you wanna trip on me" for the 'to the point' lyrics

    "They say I'm different
    They don't understand
    But there's a bigger problem
    That's much more in demand
    You got world hunger
    Not enough to eat
    So there's really no time
    To be tripping on me... "

    I do love 'speed demon' but here WYWTOM wins

    'speed demon' has a more original concept; both lyrically, and structurally. you could build a whole new track around the final musical section! though strangely slow or a track about speed, I do get the sense of travel. especially as it fades into 'Liberian girl'. he previously used the lower voice on 'off the wall', but it's raspier here. though I'm not a fan of that particular style in general, I found it interesting for the time. of course, the experience is enhanced by the underrated visual

    "Why You Wanna Trip on Me" is one of my favourite songs off of Dangerous. I feel like it's so underrated.

    "Speed Demon," easily. "Why You Wanna Trip on Me" is a little too repetitive and redundant in my opinion.
