    Beautiful Girl.

    Also re: Gloucestershire man do I hate that song. He absolutely slaughters the pronunciation of the word. It's not necessarily an amazing place either. For anyone in the UK it would've been slaughtered. It's such an odd song.

    We've Had Enough (more than a "demo", but unfinished anyway)
    In The Back
    and
    Ghost Of Another Lover << only a mic recording from a studio seminar leaked so far, but damn, that's a great flowing beat.

    I'm not too keen on any of the other unfinished known tracks. Most he stopped working on for obvious reasons.

    It's a very interesting song to me, it has a more long intro than the leaked one and a very rough lyrics, but just imagine that song complete...

    Still would love to hear People of the World full song by MJ.
    https://www.youtube.com/user/Ahess/videos - me dancing MJ - many years ago.

    I would be really glad if you rated or/and commented the videos. Thanks

    Brad Buxer said something along the lines of everyone, inluding MJ, being fully aware of the mispronunciation, but leaving it nonetheless.
    Also, the song is not about Michael's happy days, it's supposed to be about Brad Buxer and being super personal. It's like a homage to something important that was happening in Brad's life at that moment. He didn't want to elaborate more on the subject, just how humble and honoured he was when he heard the demo.
    The song itself, I don't know. I like it a lot, but wouldn't count it among the truly greats.
    Now, I'm a Loser on the other hand...THAT could have been a true masterpiece imho.

    Yeah, it's still just weird and something I don't really enjoy.

    Shout was finished and released on the 'Cry' single

    I didn't know that, thank you.
    Sounds unreleased though because of the muffled vocals. Really a shame, it should get another mixing treatment, his rapping is great.

    According to MJs then attorney, Peter Lopez, DBMR was considered for inclusion on T25. So I guess a completed version does exist.

    I wish Michael finished In the Back because it has a great bassline.

    I'm so blue ist perfect as it is. Some of his so called demos don't need further production imho - for instance I prefer demo to TGIM over the album cut.

    I wish MJ had finished and released Behind the Mask on T25.

    Or possibly as a 6th song on Blood On The Dance Floor, as it is a song that offers a look into a darker edge of Michael's art.
    As far as I know, the new songs on the ‘Blood On The Dance Floor’ album had to stay five.

    But it would be very interesting to know the real reason why ‘Superfly Sister’ eventually replaced ‘In The Back’ on that album.

    It appears that the inclusion of ‘In The Back’ would have been lyrically too much next to the already very dark-themed four other new songs on the album, so they finally chose ‘Superfly Sister’ instead of it.

    As for the ‘HIStory’ album, ‘In The Back’ could not replace ‘Come Together’ because Michael Jackson wanted ‘Come Together’ mainly for symbolic reasons in the second disc of that album.

    The birth in 1995 of the Sony/ATV Music Publishing company was the main reason why ‘Come Together’ was included on the second disc of the ‘HIStory’ album, and especially why ‘Come Together’ is placed in the middle of the track list of the songs on the second disc, denoting that particular business joint venture owned half by Sony and half by Michael Jackson that took place at that time.

    Probably because ‘In The Back’ still had mostly unfinished lyrics, whereas ‘Superfly Sister’ was probably more finished lyrically and musically.
