    Missed opportunity imo. What setlist would you choose?

    I don't know, how strictly unplugged should it be? I don't know much bout what's possible in terms of music as I have no knowledge how it all works.
    I guess a total slow version of "the way you make me feel" would work and lots of ballads and mid tempo grooves like she's out of my life on guitar, the girl is mine, girlfriend, love never felt so good (just love the piano demo) etc
    I would hope most of all that he'd show creativity to come up with alternate versions, different vocal arrangements for his songs. For example I'm always in awe of those moody slow billie jean covers. I would have loved MJ doing it like that.

    Perhaps some very stripped down versions of the heavily produced dangerous songs? I don't know what the possibilities are, I'm not a musician but yes it's definitely a missed opportunity.

    I always had a fantasy about Michael starting an unplugged concert with 'Music & Me'. It's a lovely song, it's about music, and I would love to hear him sing it as an adult.

    Just a thought though!

    You have to check out "live in Mexico 1975" he already sounds way different on that performance , he does "music and me" there too.
    Anyway this is the song I want to have played on my funeral... It's in my Top 10 Michael songs.

    I used to be a big Nirvana fan back when I was still in junior high. Mtv's Nirvana Unplugged was always one of my favorites. But for an MJ unplugged concert would have been so amazing. For me 2 of the songs have to be Who Is It and Give In To Me. Especially the song Give In To Me. I think I still have this one version of the song that would have sounded so amazing for an unplugged concert. Maybe some others would be Stranger In Moscow, Little Susie, Someone Put Your Hand Out, Whatever Happens, Human Nature, P.Y.T., and Remember The Time. If I can remember how those songs went it might work. It is really horrible that I have not listen to him since that horrible June date of 2017. And I am already beginning to forget how some of his songs went.

    Mtv unplugged was always a dream of mine. Back in the day they were big. The one night only show that never happened was supposed to be in more of that style

    What do you think what happen 8 years before that date? Because of my depression and the anxiety and panic attacks that I suffer with now. As well as the vivid MJ nightmares I still tend to have. All because of what that ahole did to Michael. Listening to him became something I could no longer handle on doing. And I can't tell you just how badly I miss watching and listening to him. And I haven't watched him since September of 2012. 99.5% of my MJ fandom is just literally gone from me. And that is something I can't ever get back. I guess it serves me right for spending so many years as being such a huge hardcore fan of his. If someone would have told me back in 1984 what was to happen to him 25 years later. I would have never became a fan of his in the first place.

    Oh stop being so dramatic. Every human being has to die someday. In 1984, did you think that MJ was gonna live forever? Wasn't he a human being?

    No offence, but your post is everything that is wrong with stan culture. This is why people shouldn't put anyone, especially a celebrity on a pedestal.

    That was my thought also. One night only would've been great. I think an unplugged gig would allow more people to appreciate his voice more than his dancing.
    Give into me, Human nature, Black or white, Heal the world, Come together etc. I'm sure Mj would've chose the perfect setlist.

    Well I'm sorry it affects you this much, I'd consider listening to him again. I still do on a daily basis, if anything the music has become even more powerful and meaningful to me. Good luck!

    I'm not sure about the "one night only" concert. I read a lot about it and it seemed it was still very heavily aimed at dancing (but different choreographies) That childhood performance sounded special though. I'd love to see what songs were considered for performing.

    A Who is it unplugged back in the day would have knocked Kurts show right off.! .. & remember the time... Stripped down acoustic Dangerous & History ...Is It Scary ...can you imagine that? Also scream- and little Susie. You get chills just thinking about it.
