    It's been nearly two years since the snippets have leaked. I'm wondering if the full song will ever leak in foreseeable future?

    I love streetwalker but I wouldn't replaced it with another part of me through. it was perfect due to the fact with the captain eo ride at Disney at the time. I can understand why he kept that one.

    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.

    It's been a few years since I started this threads and my opinion has changed slightly, I'm intrigued to know what the 87 mix of Streetwalker sounded like now more than ever.
    Since then we've had two different versions leaked in LQ from Brad's seminar, the one with whistle intro was my favourite, the melody of "why don't you give me some time" sounds slightly altered, less repetitive and more polished. Although both versions still didn't sound complete enough for the album admittedly.
    Plus we've also had the handwritten notes leak that show Michael was thinking of Streetwalker as track 1 on Bad. Thankfully he changed his mind, because regardless the Bad album had to start with Bad.

    It's interesting to me because I always go back to Streetwalker (more often now than I did then honestly) and I enjoy it, raw, funky, classic Bad era Mike, but I feel I listen to it puzzled somewhat when I think it nearly made the album, truthfully I always think of Price Of Fame when I think of any track that should have almost made the album

    I agree with everything you said mate. I also think it's classic Bad era MJ. I think Cheater, Street Walker and Price Of Fame could have easily made it to the Bad album.

    Maybe not a triple disc album, but I think Bad should have been a double disc album, similar to Prince's Sign of The Times album that also came out in 1987.

    Imagine a second disc with a track list consisting of:

    1) Streetwalker
    2) Fly Away
    3) Price of Fame
    4) Chicago 1945
    5) Loving You
    6) Throwing Your Life Away
    7) I'm So Blue
    8) Abortion Papers
    9) Cheater

    I think if Bad was released as a double album, its' sales would be lower but it would be more appreciated as an album.

    It's a fairly good song with a strong beat and great harmony - but like what Michael thought, it does not really add any more to Bad - the song is a bit one dimensional subject wise. The other songs on that album just have a bit more "meat" I guess.

    It's pleasant by itself and it did at least see the light of day on Special editions and Bad25.

    Streetwalker if i'm not mistaking is about him or maybe some other guy trying to get with this woman. she a prostitute so yeah in my opinion that does fit the BAD native.

    This would be my 2nd disc. Imagine fully finished, polished, mixed and mastered version of these songs. This would have been incredible.

    1) Streetwalker
    2) Come Together
    3) Price of Fame
    4) Chicago 1945
    5) Scared Of The Moon or Someone Put Your Hand Out
    6) Fly Away
    7) I'm So Blue
    8) Do You Know Where Your Children Are
    9) Cheater
