    Default Snippet of 7 Digits totally sounds like Skeletons by Stevie Wonder.

    I'm the only one who hears the resemblance? Not only the bassline but also the synth and the vocal melody. It's eerily similar. What do you think?

    When he sings "It's gettin' ready to shock", there is a background vocal that repeats "SHOCK" and it kinda sounds like Michael to me.

    Good spot mate, it's definitely similar, we know how Mike was a fan of Stevie. I love Stevie and Skeletons is a great song, it always makes me think of Die Hard with Argyle in his limo

    Haha Die hard is such a classic movie! Let's settle this debate once and for all. Is Die Hard a Christmas movie or not?

    If there's a Christmas tree in it, it is.

    Interestingly enough, Bryan Loren has stated that D.S sounds very similar to a track he worked on with Michael during the Decade/Dangerous sessions.

    DS & Morphine have borrowed elements from a Loren track called "It".
