    I cannot picture bad without twymmf.. I absolutely love that song. Streetwalker is great, fornthe album but I can't have the track list they went with.

    I must admit that I've never really liked TWYMMF. If I had to choose the Bad era tracks to be on the original release it's probably be a total flop since I highly prefer the bonus/unreleased tracks over a lot of the album tracks. Lmao

    That's totally true! Especially the teddy riley songs, I think they just polished them way too much and kinda overworked them.

    the instrumental on this version of In The Closet is more grittier, heaviery and funkier than the released one. I also remember reading that the BOTDF version from 91 was also more funkier

    Then there are aloooot of songs we don't know about from this period (83-87), Tomboy, What You Do To Me, Alright Now, Apocalypse Now to name a few. He could have absolutely released a great album between bad and dangerous

    Another really great song I heard at the ITSWMJ seminar in Oslo was "Throwing your life away", which I thought was a highlight. I guess it was from the Dangerous sessions (??), so it might not appear on any Bad track list, but it could definately feature on an album in between Bad and Dangerous. Great song!!

    If i'm remembering correctly Throwing your life away was made for Bad. Same thing for Someone put your hand out. He probably worked on TYLA for the dangerous record

    If MJ released anything between 82 - 87 it wouldve sold regardless. Especially in 84...

    Thank you for this! Never heard this before! What a track! So much funkier and tougher than the released version. I really enjoyed this!

    what I most like about that "early version of Ghosts" in some areas his vocals are just clearer to hear. And yes overall funkier, that unique sound leading into the 'next' sections..

    It would have probably started with the silhouette against the canvas intro (as used for HH in 87 & SC in 88/89) followed by a twymmf-like chase-the-girl performance. The song would have ended with MJ draging the girl into his white on-stage tent.

    After a 10 minutes break a sweaty and out of breath MJ would have showed up and continued with Billie "she says I am the one but the kid is not my son" Jean.

    I love it but APOM is my fave track on the bad album, extremely danceable and I love the live version. But streetwalker has something special too, it's got a very high sing along vibe and I'm fairly certain it would have been a smash hit. Love the use of the harmonica , it brings something different to the table. The chorus is top class.
    So we have an interesting situation, I can't get rid of APOM. They could have used it as the extra CD track instead of leave me alone. But that also is not a good idea because also LMA is a world class song with a great video and very danceable and my second fave of the album. Like I said in the other thread, Bad should have been a double album. MJ was sitting on at least 20 great songs that never got the exposure they deserved.
