    Default The Greatest Bridge In Pop Music History!

    I dunno, everytime I listen to OTW, I get this thrill towards the end of the second verse/chorus, in anticipation for these bridge.

    For me it seems like the perfect in-between, it fits nicely in the middle of song, but it also breaks up the repetitive nature of the song.

    I also just like how good it sounds, hard to explain, but sounds amazing, Badass!

    I just dont think I've heard a better more perfect bridge in any other pop song.

    "Do what you want to do
    There ain't no rules it's up to you (ain't no rules
    It's all up to you)
    It's time to come alive
    And party on right through the night (all right)"

    I love Off The Wall too the bridge hits like a flood after a long drought, totally refreshes the song.

    I have to make a case for the bridge in Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' though, never has a bridge been so inspiring and uplifting

    Lift your head up high
    And scream out to the world
    I know I am someone
    And let the truth unfurl
    No one can hurt you now
    Because you know what's true
    Yes, I believe in me
    So you believe in you

    That's poetry

    Awesome thread and I agree! OTW is probably my fav song from that album and the bridge is divine.

    I'll raise ya with the often forgotten but magical bridge from Thriller!

    Tonight
    Night creatures call
    And the dead start to walk in this masquerade
    There's no escaping the jaws of the alien this time
    They're open wide
    This is the end of your life, ooh!

    Dangerous

    I can not sleep alone tonight
    My baby left me here tonight
    I cannot cope 'til it's all right
    You and your manipulation
    You hurt my baby

    Heartbreaker

    I never thought that I would stop dreamin' about you
    Stop being without you
    But everyone told me so, to stop caring about you
    And start being without you
    But I'll find a way to go and start doin' without you
    And stop talkin' about you
    And what will she say?
    They will say I was the man that got away

    Invincible

    Now some way I'll have to prove all that I said I would do
    Giving you everything, fulfilling your fantasy
    Then maybe you'll change your mind and finally give in in time
    Then I'll be showing you what other men are supposed
    To do for you my baby

    Someone put your hand out because he's doing oprah in the bgv. Very beautiful song & shouldve been released on the dangerous album.
    (When you say we will dance 'till the light of day
    It's just like the children in Earth's joy
    When we pray will you promise me you'll always stay?
    It's because I'm needing that someone)

    The bridge for Will You Be There is one of my favourites, it's pure magic

    Everyone's taking control of me
    Seems that the world's got a role for me
    I'm so confused will you show to me
    You'll be there for me and care enough to bear me

    It really shows Michael was just a human like the rest of us

    To this day I have not heard of a single valid reason for why Someone Put Your Hand Out was left out of Dangerous. Imo it's his finest ballad and just one of his greatest songs overall. It would have been a smash with a beautiful music video to accompany it and that bridge... Wow. The opratic (Aaahh Aaaahhhhh) amazing

    YES YES! finally someone who's almost im my head thinkn identical thoughts! I picture it looking exactly like the pepsi commercial at the piano. My only thought is that the song was finished after the dangerous album. I think this & monkey business shouldve most definitely replaced "can't let her get away" & "keep the faith". To me keep the faith is like man in the mirror part 2 or alternate version or something. Spyho should definitely be on there
