    "OK, first of all, I have this skin disorder that destroys the pigmentation of the skin. It's something that I cannot help. Okay? But when people make up stories that I don't wanna be what I am, it hurts me. It's a problem for me, okay? I can't control it. But let's reverse it. What about all the millions of people who sit out in the sun to become other than what they are?" -- Michael Jackson (1993)

    *in best Mike scream* DONCHA KNOW HE CRIIIIIESSS!


    "that's what you get for being polite" otherwise known as ... one of the greatest songs mike and randy ever written

    i HEART this song. i feel "jack" is the best and most true metaphor for michael himself, especially at that time in his life.

    "jack" is one of those characters you just want to root for and slap for being such a dang gullible pushover...poor, poor jack

    HE WANTS TO BE SO BAD!
    ALL THE TIME, GETTING IN
    THINGS HE CAN'T GET OUT!!!

    SOMETHING'S DEEP INSIDE OF HIM
    EATING UP THE PRIDE IN HIM
    THAT MAKES HIM BUYYYYY THINGS FOR THE GIRLS
    THAT'S WHAT YOU GET FOR BEING POLITE!

    I agree, that song is so autobiographical.

    straight away when i heard this song first i was convinced MJ is speaking about himself. I'm sure ... especially this part buying things that is one of his impetus .... this song makes me sad. Poor Jack, really.

    :lol: Okay! A few years back at one of the J5 fan-club, there was a discussion about this song (its meaning etc), anyway someone said that the song was about one of the other brothers who was having some relationship issues. I can't remember exactly who but I think it was Jermaine. I have tried to find the link for the discussion but can't so far.

    Besides MJ didn't date much then!

    but I think it is not meant especially about girls ... more generally in spite of singing about them.

    Cant get enough of MJ's vocals on this track.
    How does he make the begging and pleading in his voice sound so sexy?

    I think MJ is singing about himself too, in spite of
    Forever_Mike's explanation.

    Hey, maybe 'Jack' is all of the brothers!

    Maybe! The thing is if you listen to all songs that MJ does about himself, he doesn't address himself as a third party. For e.g. Dirty Diana, Who is it?, Will you be there? etc
