    Default Sound Effects in MJ Songs

    There's broken glass in In The Closet. (watch out! :P)

    There are crickets in Unbreakable.

    Anyone have the reason for/meaning behind these additions to the songs?

    What are some other MJ songs with sound effects in them?

    (I love the crickets. )

    There was a rare Thriller acetate on ebay a while ago, one of the tracks was Thriller without the sound effects

    Stranger in Moscow - Rain?
    Does that count. There is no underlying rhythm in the rain like in the other songs...but hey.

    If I never knew you I'd be safe but half as real
    Never knowing I could feel a love so strong and true
    I'm so grateful to you, I'd have lived my whole life through
    Lost forever if I never knew you

    I understand the sound effects in the other songs. But why the crickets in Unbreakable?

    Is it because it's a quiet part of the song? lol

    I love the sound affects in the songs sometimes there is something just in the background you can barely hear then you notice it, I still find myself finding new things now after all the times I have heard them :P

    Default Heartbreak Hotel

    In Heartbreak Hotel, there's a sound like somebody is falling down some stairs or through a ceiling. Plus LaToya screaming and some glass breaking before the guitar solo.

    There is like humming in 'Heartbreaker', so idk if you would count that. For the most part, I believe these sound effects are just sounds that Michael found interesting. Like I shared before about the humming, Michael was probably walking around, humming and thought it was a good sound to include on a song, and that's why we hear it on 'Heartbreaker'
