    I agree about the darker version of TWYMMF.
    I emphatically prefer Streetwalker over Dangerous. Wish he had kept going on that instead.

    I prefer APOM over Streetwalker.

    I wish Fly Away would've made the cut.

    I know the version we have (the 2001 special edition bonus track) is a mix done in 1988 while Michael was on tour but if I'm honest, it's not even my favourite demo from that era.

    MJ had so much great unrelesed material at that time he could have released another album inbetween BAD and Dangerous.

    Interesting. Now that I think of it he could have released an album before bad, after bad and right before Dangerous if he really wanted to and they would have all been killers!

    I agree with you about keeping APOM on the album instead of Streetwalker with the SW version we know that is released on the SE album. Although I really like that version itīs not really up there. BUT...

    I attended the In The Studio With MJ seminar with Brad Sundberg in Stockholm a few years ago where he played another version of Streetwalker that was so incredibly funky and amazing that I would have taken it over APOM anytime. Of course, I have only heard it once so itīs hard to be definitive, but as I remember it the song was a lot better than the released version. I think they had some added layers in the chorus that lifted it and the bassline was magic! So my vote goes to that unreleased version of Streetwalker that could go straight into the Bad album.

    I remember everybody saying how different and great this version was. I'm sure someone said it had a whistle a the start and more adlibs/vocals. Would love to hear it

    I dunno, I heard this too and it really did not sound all that different to me than the demo we have. Yeah, slightly better, but it really didn't affect my feelings about the song in any way.

    APOM is so much better imo.

    Yes, it WAS a lot better actually. Makes me wonder why MJ chose to release the version we have on the SE in the first place when he had a better version of it.

    Of course a lot of people would prefer APOM. DonīĻt get me wrong, I love the song, but I think Streetwalker is an even better song if we compare the best version of Streetwalker. Thatīs actually one thing that I thought was a bit unfair during the Oslo seminar of ITSWMJ in November. Brad started playing Streetwalker and started a poll to see who preferred APOM and who would have voted for SW. But he only played the first demo of SW, the one without the chorus we know - when the song was totally different. And of course most people who had not heard the best version of it voted for APOM. I think he shouldīve played the best version and then started the poll, only then would it be a fair comparison. And one other thing why Streetwalker should have been on the Bad album is that Streetwalker was Michaelīs own favorite of the two. But I would have missed the live performances of APOM, though - they are incredible!

    Streetwalker is light years better than TWYMMF and should've replaced it on the original release.
