    Michael’s best vocal performance is…?

    I'd put up "We've Had Enough". If I had to go with an officially released song, then "Chicago" or "Another Day". If I had to go with one of the more recognizable ones, then "Earth Song" is probably the best vocal performance out of his most well-known songs.

    When will we get new songs/album?

    I don't know about an album, since apparently Branca said that their goal (at least as of 2018, and for all we know maybe they changed their goal since then) was to release individual songs. This might be a good idea, since this would stretch out the Vault a bit longer and also new singles can...

    New MJ content (Possibility)

    To be fair, it was being reworked in 2007-2009 (it's on that list of songs after all) -- which means it very well could have more vocals than the leaked *Dangerous* version. Whether or not it's finished is another story, but it's not necessarily a given that it's unreleasable.

    New MJ content (Possibility)

    I never really believed the rumors, but I do still think that there will be new music in the next couple years. I am almost certain about a new single like "Hot Fun In The Summertime" coming out relatively soon

    New MJ content (Possibility)

    Yeah, a short music video with footage of MJ recording in the studio and home footage maybe. It wouldn't have a high production value but it would be sentimental and give audiences a chance to see this footage that likely would never be seen otherwise. I had a similar idea, called something...

    New MJ content (Possibility)

    I don't get why the listing says "Unbreakable (feat. The Notorious B.I.G.) and then says in the notes that they took his rap feature out and replaced it with some spoken news clips interlude. Also Biggie's rap feature on "Unbreakable" was undoubtedly the strongest feature on the entire...

    Artistic Decisions in Michael Jackson's Career That Are Questionable

    Yeah, I don't actually know if Michael's voice deepened all that much between Off The Wall and HIStory. I think he just started singing with more of his range than before. Like you can get glimpses of a deeper more "throaty" singing voice in songs like "You Can't Win" and in the backing vocals...

    Randall Sullivan's book "Untouchable"

    I personally doubt the prosthetic noses story. If Michael had multiple different prosthetic noses (why would he not have just one, or multiple of the same one?) Karen Faye would've known about it and mentioned it by now. But instead she mentions him being horrified and insulted at a director...

    Hypothetical: What Cover Songs Would You Like to Hear MJ Sing?

    I would be amazed to hear an MJ cover of some Ralph Tresvant songs -- Ralph was influenced by MJ but obviously went in his own direction. I think his "You'll Remember Me" and especially "My Aphrodisiac" would be fun dance songs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTLudzgxqbI...

    New MJ content (Possibility)

    Just for clarity, by "demo of Hollywood Tonight" do you mean the one from 2006? Because if I'm not mistaken the one from the Invincible sessions was leaked. Also assuming this predicting account is accurate, then that rules out any post-Invincible tracks like "Hollywood Tonight" (2006) and "Best...

    What do you want to see from the Estate? (fans wishlist thread)

    In lieu of the Estate not releasing anything (yet), this entire fandom has just been that meme of Plankton saying "DON'T LET THE FLAME DIE OUT". But still, it would be weird if we didn't get anything out of his 50th anniversary.

    Unpopular opinions about MJ’s music?

    While I don't think that the strain was really on purpose (since his voice was very tired after the HIStory tour), I do agree that it fits the song. I don't think it was necessarily an artistic decision, but I think it worked out well artistically.

    Artistic Decisions in Michael Jackson's Career That Are Questionable

    I think it's like those lines in his songs where he speaks from the point of view of God kind of, like in "You Are Not Alone" and "Cry". Even though he doesn't mean, "I, Michael Joe Jackson, am God incarnate and will personally answer all your prayers", those lines should've been rewritten to...

    Who else is LGBTQ+ here? Also Happy Pride Month!

    I'm bi, good to see some representation on the forum. We know MJ was always very accepting of all people

    What do you want to see from the Estate? (fans wishlist thread)

    Honestly I'd just like to see more posthumous releases, be it a single, EP, or album. But of those options I'd prefer a full-on club experience -- I think that the Invincible era onwards could really use a "rehydration" if you will, it's been sort of left behind in its dated-ness. Michael's...

    Unpopular opinions about MJ’s music?

    I sort of agree, I think it sounds the most natural on "Threatened" and then maybe "Unbreakable" after that, but he did say that he thought those songs were some of the best on the record

    Post Your Favourite MJ Picture of the Day

    I always liked this photo from when he showed up at the green screen rehearsals for TDCAU, that clip had the feel of that one cool kid arriving late to class and him not getting in trouble at all

    What demos would you like most to see remixed for wider audiences?

    I think "Cheater" can 100% be used since we know that three different versions of the song exist, meaning that it's almost impossible that there isn't enough material from it for them to release officially. Also "Throwing Your Life Away" could easily be the next "Chicago" in terms of atmosphere...

    Unpopular opinions about MJ’s music?

    I mean obviously he was older but I think his voice had stayed in probably the same range from *Thriller* to 2009, it's just that he started using more of his range as of probably *Dangerous*. I think he stayed pretty consistent in his abilities vocally, except for "losing/damaging his voice"...

    Unpopular opinions about MJ’s music?

    Thanks for mentioning these, I've never heard of them before but after one listen to the Refugee Camp BOTDF I think I'll listen to them all. Even though Michael was a super talented vocalist, I wouldn't be surprised if they did artificially lengthen that note. In order for him to pull that off...
