    They set up is actually pretty good, TWYMMF is the only song that is missing. I always felt that the Bad album was too short

    Hot Fever is an early version of The Way You Make Me Feel.

    It's true! I had my cassette without Leave Me Alone. I have to buy the mixes of Bad. This was in Argentina.
    A1 Malo (Bad) (Dance Extended Mix) 8:24
    B1 Malo (Bad) (Dub Version) 4:05
    B2 Dejame Solo (Leave Me Alone) 4:40
    After listening to Fly Away I regretted so much it had to be cut out...

    Not sure how I feel about opening the album with "Streetwalker," honestly. "Bad" is just such a bombastic, dynamic, "I'M BACK MOTHER*******" track that it's hard to beat.

    In the end, I'm glad "Streetwalker" got cut. Good tune, but I lose interest about halfway through. Plus, "Leave Me Alone" puts it to shame.

    Side note: I see a tape in there that says "MJ Tour '93 - Remember the Time." Is it possible that Michael was planning on reinserting "Remember the Time" into the set list, before the Chandler incident?

    That's what I was gonna say. I think he was planning to at least rehearse it for the 93' leg.

    I wonder why Streetwaklker didn't make it onto cd as the 12th track.

    That's possible. On the bottom of that pic there's a partially visible tape (covered by the Ghosts tape) which reads
    Michael Jackson - Mixes
    TOUR .........s

    1. Jam
    2. In the Closet
    3. Remember The Time
    4. Heal the World
    5. Black or White
    6. Who is it
    7. Will You Be there
    8. B......
    It looks like MJ was eyeing to perform/rehearse more songs from Dangerous.








    note: the "MICHAEL JACKSON DAT 2 (5-03-91)" could have been compiled for the "DECADE" project.

    You have heard it already. "Hot Fever" is an earlier title for TWYMMF when the track had barely lyrics. However it was kept until prior to the release of the BAD album.

    I knew it was the TWYMMF Demo, but I thought it was a kind of a different song (like Starlight and Thriller).
    So, if it doesn't have much lyrics, is it just an instrumental base?

    They did rehearse In The Closet and Can't Let Her Get Away but they never performed them.

    It has started as an instrumental track, but as I've already said the song was just kept being titled "Hot Fever" since June or July 1987 - despite having full "TWYMMF" lyrics since early 1986 or so.

    TWYMMF dates as early as October 1985 on a tape named "Hot Fever" (along with demos for other tracks, like Smooth Criminal & Dirty Diana). Also studio material from the time lists the name of the songs as "The Way You Make Me Feel (Hot Fever)".
