    Default Speed Demon (Official video)



    It was written, composed and co-produced by Jackson, and produced by Quincy Jones. "Speed Demon" is a funk rock song whose lyrics pertain to driving fast. The song was released on October 12, 1989, as a promotional single for both the album and the 1988 film Moonwalker. The song received mixed reviews from contemporary critics.

    Music video: Jackson filmed a promotional video for the song, which originally was a segment of his 1988 film Moonwalker. Directed by Will Vinton, the video was produced by Vinton, Jerry Kramer, Michael Jackson and Frank Dileo. In the video, Jackson, in an attempt to avoid overzealous fans (even The Noid), disguises himself as a rabbit named Spike, but ends up taunting the fans into chasing him. During the chase, he morphs into other celebrities, including Sylvester Stallone, Tina Turner and Pee-wee Herman;surprisingly enough, the set that Jackson was running on was very similar to the one in Pee-wee's Big Adventure, which was released 2 years prior . After finally losing the fans, he removes the costume, which comes to life and challenges him to a dance-off.


    Lyrics:

    I'm Headed For The Border
    It's On My Mind
    And Nothin' Really Matters
    I've Got To Be On Time
    Look In The View Mirror
    Is He Hot On My Tracks
    Is He Getting Nearer
    I Feel Some Heat Is On
    My Back

    (Speed Demon)
    Speedin' On The Freeway
    Gotta Get A Leadway
    (Speed Demon)
    Doin' It On The Highway
    Gotta Have It My Way
    (Speed Demon)
    Mind Is Like A Compass
    I'm Stoppin' At Nothin'
    (Speed Demon)
    (He Say) Pull Over Boy And
    Get Your Ticket Right . . .

    And Nothin' Gonna Stop Me
    Ain't No Stop And Go
    I'm Speedin' On The Midway
    I Gotta Really Burn This Road

    (Speed Demon)
    Speedin' On The Freeway
    Gotta Get The Leadway
    (Speed Demon)
    Doin' It On The Highway
    Gotta Have It My Way
    (Speed Demon)
    Mind Is Like A Compass
    I'm Stoppin' At Nothin'
    (Speed Demon)
    (He Say) Pull Over Boy And
    Get Your Ticket Right . . .

    Speed Demon, You're The
    Very Same One
    Who Said The Future's In
    Your Hands
    The Life You Save Could Be
    Your Own
    You're Preachin' 'Bout My
    Life Like You're The Law
    Gonna Live Each Day And
    Hour Like
    For Me There's No Tomorrow

    Go! Go! Go! Aaow!

    (Speed Demon)
    Speedin' On The Freeway
    Gotta Get A Leadway

    Got Fire In My Pocket
    I Just Lit A Rocket

    Speed Demon is the most underrated song from the Bad Era. This song is so funk and so infectious. It's one of my favs from the bad album.
