    This is something that has always interested me. I can't remember what scene it is, i think it's when the ghosts start walking up the walls and you can hear the beat of You Win Again being played as they're walking. I know Michael was a big fan of the Bee Gees but always found it curious why he used that particular song in Ghosts.

    Did MJ own Bee Gees songs??

    I actually never notices MJ used the beat from You Win Again - and that is one of my favorite Bee Gees songs...
    https://www.youtube.com/user/Ahess/videos - me dancing MJ - many years ago.

    I would be really glad if you rated or/and commented the videos. Thanks

    Michael was a fan of the beegees and was inspire and influenced by them so it's no surprise.

    A similar question would be... why is Roy Ayers "Hot" (from 1985) included so prominently in the TWYMMF video?
    There has to be a little bit more to it than that Michael just liked it?

    Michael's "Hot Fever" maybe... but the credits to the included Roy Ayers "Hot" song don't suggest any connection.
