    I totally agree.

    Those demos would be so amazingly beautiful if they were updated to a newer sound but not made to the 2016-2018 sound if that makes sense.
    SO much YES!

    I would suggest Beautiful Girl, too, for the same reasons. I don't like "Days of Gloucestershire" at all....one of the reasons being the way Michael pronounces Gloucestershire - it's jarring to my ears. Lol.

    Honestly I've never been a huge fan of Fall Again, I like but not as much as everyone else but I do appreciate why it's loved.
    Never give up on the dream of stems for that one, they're definitely somewhere and I would love to hear you interpretation of the songs

    Sorry to triple post, I know it's despised. My bad, continue this awesome discussion
    My interpretation of both songs would be as follows:
    Fall Again would still keep the same Spanish flamenco guitar and other instruments,but other instrumentation would be added in such as strings and a dance breakdown before the key change. So I would say it'd be like a mix of Maria,Maria and similar 90s Santana songs.
    Scared Of The Moon would be kept the same just about,but with more added orchestra and a children's choir singing the final chorus along with Michael. I'm not sure how I'd gather a children's choir or reproduce that in some way,but I think it'd be amazingly beautiful to have some kind of choral element to the song,whether a regular or children's choir.
    I'm gone...dust.

    I like Scared of the Moon, but there's a dark undercurrent in it that can be unsettling for some.
    I think it's about neglect and/or abuse of a child, in much the same way that Little Susie is??
    Topics such as anxiety, fear, paranoia, depression are hinted at and explored in the lyrics....

    I love your idea for Fall Again, that would definitely peak my interest in the song. I would go with Spanish theme guitar and percussion because it was very popular at the time. I dig the Santana vibe, especially Maria Maria that is a superb song and my ringtone

    'Buffalo Bill' - the one he mentioned in the unauthorised interview. I wonder how far he got with that?

    I like the sunny, easy listening feel of 'Days In Gloucester', and the story behind it. Could have been the 'Human Nature' of the new generation..

    Great thread! Ok here comes my two (three) cents

    1. She Got It
    This track is so funky and infectious and i feel like full studio production would elevate this song to great heights! It was really a groove.

    2. In The Back.
    This might be one of his best work in progress songs. The composition is so ethereal and mystic and I love the build up to the chorus. I think this track is better than some tracks that ended up on HIStory.

    3. Days In Glouchestershire
    What a wonderful and sublime song. It has an innoncence about it and I really believe this could end up a greater song than it already is with full production and complete lyrics.

    Am I the only one who dislikes days in Gloucestershire? 😀 It‘s about a city I have nothing to do with so I just can‘t relate to that song... the melody is also not that special

    Think of Gloucestershire as a metaphor. He sings about a time when he was in his youth and it everybody was laughing and smiling and just being happy. Gloucestershire is the representation of that escape that Michael so often sang about. Gloucestershire becomes his safe place

    I understand how you feel even though I don't agree. I'm the same with Fall Again and Don't Walk Away *runs for cover

    Thanks man I just wanted a good chat about demos

    Man She Got It, I totally forgot about that when I was thinking of this. What a funky groove, you're right. This song had so much potential in the New Jack era. Love his aggressive Dangerous era vocals on this

    I really think DIG could have been a really nice reflective song, I love the feeling I get when I listen to it. It's nice hearing Mike sing about happy times

    I was debating whether to say Don't Be Messin' Round too, I love that demo, I really grew on me, the funky bassline, the groove and that verse that starts
    "Now she started finger popping to the beat" is so cool. I really hope there is a more lyrically complete version in the Dangerous and HIStory era because this song has just got something about it
