    Default MJ Songs You Would Never Want to Hear as an Official Cover.

    Is there a song(s) of MJ's that you would never want to hear anyone do a cover of for any reason? For me, personally, it would be "Stranger In Moscow", "D.S.", and "Childhood" to an extent. The reason woould be because those songs seem to be way too personal for anyone else to perform or record unless they have been through either the same or similar situation.

    With the exception of Come Together (Which is already a cover song) and You Are Not Alone all of the HIStory album

    Not a single artist can do any track on the BAD Album justice imo.

    Tame Impala has covered the song as a psychadelic version. Pretty dope tbh

    “Childhood” for sure. Too personal to Michael. You could probably put “Leave Me Alone” in that category too.

    "Remember the Time" should NEVER be song by anyone else.
    God, I thank you for allowing Michael to continue to watch over his children:

    Prince Michael, Paris, and Blanket ("Bigi").

    While we can't not stop anyone to covering any Michael songs. i'll say the songs that was very personal to him and worked hard on.

    Yeah there's actually quite a lot of MJ songs that I can't imagine anybody else singing. Most of Bad. All of HIStory. Half of Dangerous.

    Too late: https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...he+time+covers
    (There's even an Hanson cover...)

    Also regarding covers, I found this tribute album/compilation really interesting. Not that I really like everything, but I felt like the artists really re-made the songs they're own way:
    https://www.discogs.com/Various-Mich...lease/14119374
    (And the first track is Remember the time by The Temptations.)
