  1. Did you have to adjust to Michael's new sound when dangerous got released?

    One can say that versatility is not always a good thing, because the 'Dangerous' album and its singles were criticized at the time for being musically unfocused (hard rock song, new jack swing song, gospel song, pop song, etc). It can also been said that with his 'Dangerous' album (by having so...
  2. How was Streetwalker strong enough for Bad?

    People understandably sleep on 'Get It' because, unlike 'Just Good Friends', 'Get It' lacks a catchy melody that sticks in people's mind. Note also that what makes a song good is certainly not the vocals. It has been written that this was impossible due to Motown Records (Stevie Wonder's...
  3. How was Streetwalker strong enough for Bad?

    That is probably because Quincy Jones is a better producer than Teddy Riley. It has been said that Michael Jackson wanted a high-profile duet on his 'BAD' album, which seems to explain why he included that duet song with Stevie Wonder. Note that he had already tried that with Prince ('BAD'...
  4. Let's end the confusion about MJ's unreleased tracks here

    It has been written that the project fell through because of Nelson Mandela's advisors who advised him to cancel his planned speech on the 'Faces' song. Which is odd, because that song was meant as a tribute song to Nelson Mandela. Many unreleased song titles in a releasable state (in the post...
  5. Let's end the confusion about MJ's unreleased tracks here

    In 2015, a fan (via Twitter) asked Legacy Recordings (which is a division of Sony Music) for more information about the supposed 'Days Of The Broken Hearted' duet song. Legacy Recordings appeared to have confirmed the existence of that duet song. Legacy Recordings even asked fans to hashtag...
  6. Do you think the This is it concerts were gonna be great ?

    You can maintain whatever you want to, but it is pretty obvious to almost everyone that Michael Jackson would not have been able to do all these shows especially with that tight schedule, given his state of health, his dependency on drugs and his exacerbated insomnia. Members from his own...
  7. The song: On The Line

    Apparently, this is an error in the copyright registration at the U.S. Copyright Office. Also, American author Joseph Vogel confirms (in his 'Man In The Music' book) that 'On The Line' was written solely by Babyface and it was recorded by Michael Jackson during the 'HIStory' album sessions.
  8. The song: On The Line

    Most sources agree that 'On The Line' was written solely by Babyface (including the 'For The Record' book which also confirms that). The only exception seems to be 'The Ultimate Collection' booklet, which states that it was written by Michael Jackson, and not by Babyface. But this booklet has...
  9. Do you think the This is it concerts were gonna be great ?

    Actually, acute Propofol intoxication was one of the factors that killed him. According to the autopsy report, Michael Jackson died of acute Propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication. Benzodiazepines were given to the singer along with Propofol (during his last night on earth) in order to treat...
  10. Let's end the confusion about MJ's unreleased tracks here

    Assistant engineer Rob Hoffman stated that 'Willing And Waiting' remained only as a Babyface vocal guide demo. The reason, according to him, was its high calibre which acted in a way as a deterrent for Michael Jackson to record the song for himself.
  11. Do you think the This is it concerts were gonna be great ?

    The AEG Live contract stipulated that Michael Jackson had to perform at least 31 'This Is It' shows (the contract is available on the Internet). But initially, AEG Live announced 10 shows in order to test the demand (note, the singer had not properly performed for nearly a decade and they were...
  12. Could MJ play guitar part in Stranger in Moscow and Morphine?

    @Michaels Lover, my point is that unlike Michael Jackson, his brothers knew how to play the instruments on a professional level. For example, Randy Jackson knew how to play keyboards, even though he did not want to play that instrument during The Jackson 5 performances.
  13. Could MJ play guitar part in Stranger in Moscow and Morphine?

    Michael Jackson could not play the guitar part in 'Stranger In Moscow' and in 'Morphine', meaning that these credits that he gets on these 2 songs are apparently misleading. This fact was also confirmed by the singer's nephew Taj Jackson: "He wasn't very good at playing the instruments to the...
  14. Song Of The Week - Liberian Girl

    'Liberian Girl' is certainly not one of his worst songs ever, according to this community. It is the music video of that song that appears to be one of his worst music videos ever, according to this community.
  15. Which song was Michael going to sing live in This is It

    But people speak in their normal voice without having done prior vocal warm up, and they do not crack their voice. What can crack the voice (with or without prior vocal warm up) is: speaking, singing (both for a long period of time), and of course yelling, shouting and screaming.
  16. Which song was Michael going to sing live in This is It

    On these occasions that you mentioned he just sings a few lines of slow songs/ballads, which certainly does not crack the voice. As a matter of fact, this is (more or less) equal to speaking. I do not count the James Brown BET 2003 event because here Michael Jackson utters, rather than sings...
  17. Which song was Michael going to sing live in This is It

    Singing live and impromptu a few lines does not crack the voice. In Bahamas, for example, Michael Jackson omits a few words which shows that he cannot remember certain lines of the 'Heal The World' song. Also, the 'Who Is It' brief a cappella rendition (at the Oprah Winfrey interview) does not...
  18. Do you think the This is it concerts were gonna be great ?

    One has to simply take a look at these emails that were presented in the trials regarding Michael Jackson's death in order to understand what was really going on behind the scenes. For example, according to one of these emails (that was published in the Los Angeles Times) the singer was not in...
  19. Do you think the This is it concerts were gonna be great ?

    It has been said that Michael Jackson was going to perform on stage as little as possible due to his failing health at the time. For that reason, the production team (reportedly) planned a lot of theatrics, visual effects and a lot of dancing from the backup dancers that would take place on...
  20. What is your favorite thing about your least favorite song?

    Many fans have always been somewhat surprised (if not annoyed) that an artist like Michael Jackson who grew up and was in the business during the good old days of the late '60s to early '80 ditched real instruments for synthesized sounds. Especially, when the 'This Is It' film was released...
