    The fact that they sold doesn't make them good.

    I don't think that "We've had enough" is a demo (and it is not reffered as such on TUC).

    Gloucestershire lyrics are incomplete, I don't think anything can be done about unless you want them to hire Malachi again, but other than that it's perfect as it is.
    There other issue is in sound quality so it could possibly use better mastering, not remixing.
    I agree. I like them just the way they are.

    Because it's AWESOME and it is still topical/current; a song about social and political issues.

    It’s a fantastic song - one of MJs best later cuts but it’s just not a smash hit like some make it out to be.

    Why do you think, WHE has no hit potential? Take a look at TDCAU, the structure of the song is the same pattern (musically nothing special or surprising), reused beat from WYBT and still it was and is a hit... The message and controversy in the song made TDCAU hit. I don´t see any reason that why WHE couldn´t make it the same way... ;)

    For me the list is quite long but I´ll chose the best ones for me I would love to hear in modern coat :)

    WHE
    Sunset Driver (definatelly)
    Cheater
    Monkey Bussines
    CGYWOOF (Would die to hear the demo too :D )
    TYLA
    Price Of Fame
    Scared Of The Moon
    I Was a Loser

    PS: If they want to make a duet, please make it but not from a finished song Where MJ sings all the versers... For me the duet could be Familly Thing...

    I think "Cheater" can 100% be used since we know that three different versions of the song exist, meaning that it's almost impossible that there isn't enough material from it for them to release officially. Also "Throwing Your Life Away" could easily be the next "Chicago" in terms of atmosphere and moodiness. "Sunset Driver" could definitely be a "Silk Sonic's HIStory Lesson" sort of thing

    Price Of Fame
    Throwing Your Life Away
    Sunset Driver

    Mostly stuff from the Bad and Dangerous era because a lot of that stuff has untapped potential

    To be honest, I'm offended by the MJ remixes that try to sound modern.

    Thriller 25 was where it started to sound quite bad, but Bad 25 was absolutely pathetic (looking straight at Afrojack and Nero). Like, I've heard literally thousands of remixes in my time, and these are some of the worst remixes of any song that I've heard in my whole life.

    It shouldn't just be about picking a random name out of the top 10 and having them talk in the background. MJ was better than that.

    Lately I've listened quite a lot to Got The Hots - and in the version we have it screams 80's - but if updated by Bruno Mars, I could actually see potentiale in that song.

    It's not a new Billie Jean, but it's a sweat melody and nice song.
    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

    ^I've always thought that Got The Hots sounds rather unfinished, probably because it most likely is. Would be cool to hear more finished/polished production on that one.
