    Smile The weirdest MJ remixes (or possibly covers, official or not)

    i must say first ones pretty good (take me back)the rest is a mess
    also the official history remix the one with the music video is really weird to me - a total left turn from the original and ive always had a hard time digesting it

    The remix portion of BOTDF is very hit or miss. “2 Bad” and “Scream Louder” are great, but “This Time Around” and “Earth Song” are god awful.

    I must say - I am not a fan of any of the remixes from BOTDF.
    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

    Slow or mid-tempo songs should never be remixed in order to become danceable and up-tempo, because the remix almost always sounds very weird.

    In Michael Jackson’s case, ‘Stranger In Moscow’, ‘Earth Song’, ‘You Are Not Alone’ (from the ‘Blood On The Dance Floor’ album) are three such remixes that come to mind, which they actually ruined the original versions of these songs.

    Also, an official cover song that sounded very weird was Chris Cornell’s ‘Billie Jean’ cover.

    Chris Cornell’s cover version of that song sounds not only very weird, but also very mundane, empty and depressing.

    Chris Cornell actually removed all these characteristic elements from the original song (like drum beat, bassline, finger-snap, chord progression, etc) so as to make an acoustic and pointless cover version of the song.

    The HIStory remix on BOTDF is amazing, loved that one since I was a kid.

    Thank for the replies. Well when creating a thread about the "weirdest" remixes, I didn't expect so much discussion about official or serious remixes, those would rather have their place in the thread I linked in first post, I guess : https://www.mjjcommunity.com/forum/t...-Best-MJ-remix

    (I feel a bit like this thread is going out of topic and at the same is hijacking the other thread's topic, which was not intended.)

    I completely agree! It’s not made any better by the fact that “Billie Jean” is a masterpiece of production; choosing to forgo it entirely is such a weird decision. Billie Eilish did the same thing with her cover of “Bad.”

    It depends ... I would say the Billie Eilish cover adds something different (and I'm really not a fan of Billie's music in general) while Cornell's cover falls completely flat for me.

    You Are Not Alone (Classic Club Mix): because Lead Ad Lib says 'You're always in my heart' The word 'heart' of MJ Sound hook it with a long loop to Sound hook up. it's good remix but it's some bad part


    next, The channel in YT that made the remixes that would be weird, bad, and wild is MICHAEL JACKSON TALES -THE BEATS.

    @NuTNC : I get "Video unavailable." Maybe I should try with a VPN on some occasion?
