    What's your source for this?

    Little Susie is a semi autobiographical song. I feel that the whole thing about feeling neglected and no one to love could also be related to Michael and his feelings at the time of its release and his feelings during his childhood.

    So in a way, you can call the song Little Michael instead of Little Susie.

    It's the same song. Susie never leaked so everything you find online is fake. This is what Damien Shields who heard it said about the songs. He is very credible source.

    "It's interesting which vault tracks got revisited and which didn't. Like Little Susie. Originally done in 1978, yet it never made Off The Wall, Thriller, Bad or Dangerous, but found its way onto HIStory. The original Little Susie is practically identical to the 1995 version too. It’s the same song. Everything was re-done for HIStory, but the 1978 version is almost identical. It’s on a black TDK cassette with “Susie, Michael Jackson © 1978” on the label. Copyrighted by Karen Langford on behalf of Mijac Music in 1984."

    I know Damien did some research at the US Copyright Office few years ago. Is that quote of yours taken from Damiens book? If so, can you share its title?

    Nope, all fictional.




    Here's Michaels own thoughts on that song (marked in red)

    The quote is from one of his public tweets. He also posted his written notes about the song when he was at US Copyright Office:

    ^ I'm wondering if "Be not always" as released on Victory was recorded during the same sessions in 1978. In 1984 the previously recorded track was just mixed by Bruce Swedien.

    ^Damien's personal notes. He took them while he listened to the deposited tapes, I assume.

    How does it work to get a permission for listening those recordings?

    It is strange that none of Michael Jackson’s closest collaborators (Brad Sundberg, Rob Hoffman, etc) heard that 1978 demo version of the song, which according to Damien Shields is almost identical to the 1995 version of the song.

    ‘Little Susie’ has been known as an outtake from the ‘Dangerous’ album, which means that he first recorded his vocals on the song in the early ‘90s.

    Anyway, I take Damien Shields’ word for it.
