    Thriller 40th anniversary

    But Another One Bites The Dust was released as a single in 1980 and it was on The Game not on Hot Space, so they may have been planning on recording music together as early as 1980, and they may have done so. I believe State of Shock and Victory to have been recorded in 1983 though.

    Thriller 40th anniversary

    They don’t have the footage for that…or if they do, it’s in really bad quality because they gave us The Way You Make Me Feel from July 14th with audio from the 15th.

    Did he? I don’t recall that one being mentioned.

    Thriller 40th anniversary

    This would be a dream come true and certainly the best release since Bad 25.

    Thriller 40th anniversary

    First of all, the P.Y.T Demo was certainly not a home demo. It was most certainly done in a professional studio. Starlight was not recorded in 1980, it was submitted by Rod Temperton for the Thriller sessions which started in April 1982, so it must have been recorded shortly before these...

    Thriller 40th anniversary

    August seems like a more probable date for a single release. The single would be released 3 months before the album release, not 5.

    Thriller 40th anniversary

    It’s great to hear that we are finally getting a new release and possibly some never before heard music. The font looks pretty bad, I agree and it’s a bit disappointing that they won’t release the Thriller short film and a Victory Tour concert on Blu Ray or on any streaming service (as of...

    It looks like something might be happening this year involving Thriller. Don't get your hopes up though!

    Songs with similar vocal melodies

    It was subconscious, I guess. He mentioned the similarity in this deposition (0:30):

    What were the original planned singles for Invincible?

    He also once said that he was never satisfied with anything because he was a perfectionist. So, I guess everything he ever did is weak, going by this logic. By the way, this is the actual quote from the 1999 guide interview: Q: Which songs disappointed you? A: Wanna Be Startin’ Something.”...

    What were the original planned singles for Invincible?

    I’ve personally never heard that. When you watch the 1993 deposition you can clearly see the joy in his face when listening to the work tape of him writing the song and then later when listening to the original demo. Additionally, I think they chose The Girl Is Mine as the lead single because...

    What are the best books on MJ's music?

    Thoroughly enjoyed both Making Michael and Xscape Origins. Don’t want to give you too many spoilers but I was especially surprised by the Al Capone reference in the chapter about the song Xscape. It was really cool to read about that. If you have been a fan for a while, Man In The Music is not...

    Which songs would you wish to see Michael record in the studio?

    Certainly Keep The Faith, Earth Song, Man In The Mirror, The Girl Is Mine, The Way You Make Me Feel and Smooth Criminal.
