    impressive thread..
    i never liked Get It until i heard those remixes above and now the whole song sounds so much better to me, more dynamic, i've been listening to it all day =D
    though even those versions dont come close to Just Good Friends.

    You're right in that you'd think that the Jackson/Wonder collaboration on would have turned out to be more iconic songs like Ebony & Ivory w/ McCartney. Even though Get It and Just Good Friends are still good catchy song, theyre not up there with The Girl Is Mine etc. Maybe its the McCartney factor?
    I think "What's That You're Doing?" by Stevie and Paul is better than "Ebony And Ivory". There's a bootleg of Stevie, Paul, & John Lennon from 1974 called "A Toot and A Snore In 74". It's of no musical value, lol. But it is historical. Also there is another Stevie connection with Paul, both wrote songs on "Off The Wall". Stevie & Mike participated on Minnie Riperton's "Love Lives Forever" album, released after her death. They also sang backup on Donna Summer's "State Of Independence".

    I think Carlos Santana tied that.

    We all have our own favourites of which song was better obviously but what I was talking about was which song was more iconic in the publics eye which was Ebony and Ivory over any of the Jackson/Wonder collaborations.

    And yes Im aware of "A Toot and a 'Snort' in '74". Basically just a Jam session but as you said, for histories sakes.

    ^^^^^Lennon says the word "snort", but the bootleg cover says "Snore". It is also called "A Toot And A Snore In 74" on Youtube.

    Santana did tie it, but it seems that the way the record works is he who made it first is the one who claims the stake.

    I'm not a big fan of the bootleg. It is historical, and I have it, but most of the stuff I've gave a couple listens and passed on. Still pretty cool to own though.

    Since Paul/The Beatles have come into this, both Stevie and MJ have covered them: Stevie has done "We Can Work It Out" (Signed, Sealed & Delivered album) and MJ has covered "Come Together" (HIStory and Moonwalker).

    Well, I think MJ paid a bit more to cover "Come Together" than Stevie did to cover "We Can Work It Out" if you think about it, lol.

    It just turned out to be more profitable for MJ in the end.

    Michael Sembello played on records by Stevie & the Jacksons. Stevie & the Jacksons have also been photographed with Bob Marley.

    Both were heavily linked to Eddie Murphy. They were both targets of Eddie's humor on "Delirious". Stevie appeared with Eddie on Saturday Night Live and MJ collaborated with Eddie later.
