    Default You can release ONE previously unreleased track. Which one do you choose?

    Let's do a hypothetical

    You're temporarily given the role of Estate co-executor. Branca and McClain tell you that, with the COVID-19 scare essentially shutting the world down, they want to drop a previously unreleased song, and you're in charge of choosing. The only criteria is that the song you choose cannot be available in any format -- that means, leaked songs (e.g., "Days in Gloucestershire," "Serious Effect") and demo/alternate cuts of previously released songs (e.g., "Beautiful Girl," "We've Had Enough") do not qualify.

    Essentially, you're taking a shot in the dark.
    So, what song do you choose?

    Personally, I'd go with "I Have This Dream" (assuming there is a demo with a working solo vocal). John Barnes has heaped glowing praise on that song, and right now, a song about hope is something the world could use. If that doesn't work though, I'd probably go with "Chicago 1945."

    "Can't Get Your Weight Off of Me"

    I've been waiting for that one to leak for years. I believe that Darkchild produced it, and I love his industrial-pop sound on those first 3 Invincible tracks (as well as the original version of Xscape).

    I'd like to hear one of the songs that he worked on with Will I Am.

    100% „Adore You“. I am so curious about that one. Hopefully it has proper vocals...

    Innocent Man, if it was recorded.

    Otherwise, one of the tracks from 2006-09.

    Very good question, I'd be so nervous to take a shot in the dark but I'd go for Buffalo Bill, because Michael himself said he thought it would be a good one.
    I think I'd be too nervous to pick a post trial track in case it had no vocals

    I'm curious about Buffalo Bill though because it never seems to be mentioned really by the fans and it was started around the same time as Liberian Girl (I think Mike even name drops it in the same interview as he mentions Buffalo Bill) I'd just be curious to see what direction he was heading in, in that point in time

    One of the tracks that are supposedly unlike anything we've ever heard for example "rocker"
    Mostly because I'm very skeptical to hype but as it is in human nature my curiosity is peaking

    Great post.

    There has never been a better time to release an MJ song. I'm certain if they got it right it would be a smash.

    ‘Chicago 1945’

    Steve Porcaro did not want to have it been remixed & pulled it out of contention for Xscape (2014).
    It’s a completely finished track with complete vocals, as all tracks considered for the Xscape project were, which there were 24 of.

    Still at least 16 complete enough songs for release.

    I could never choose just one, but in this scenario, it would be Throwing Your Life Away, if that counts.

    Tough to only choose one. Buffalo Bill and Chicago 1945 would have to top my list. Peak MJ era.

    Buffalo Bill, recorded for the Victory & BAD sessions & was expected for the Victory album, many people around Jackson were given a preview of the track's close-to-finish version & gave nothing but praises to the track, expecting another hit. However, nothing materialized from the track & it missed both albums.
