Re: The "Behind the Mask" Thread

Excellent song, sounds superb.

Can't help but notice similarities between that though and this: (first 4 bars)

Further more proves MJ's involvement with the Sonic games for SEGA :)


"Behind The Mask" original by Yellow Magic Orchestra is from Japan... so is SEGA... ;)
YMO are electronic music gadfathers in japan... just like Kraftwerk in Europe.

Re: The "Behind the Mask" Thread

I'm going to be really honest here. I don't like the song. It sounds a bit dated and I don't think its well put together, I think its a bit repetitive. But it might grow on me so will listen to it a few times more.

Hah, how ironic, that is the dude who played Michael in that crappy biography movie "Man In The Mirror" that portrayed Michael as a freaky person. It was released in 2004 during the time when Michael was accused and charged. Michael needed to release a statement in which he condemned the movie as a false portrait.

Oh Sophie you don't like my favorite song. Maybe you might grow to love it. By the way that man in the mirror was horrifying as you guys said and I am glad it was denounced my Michael.

Re: The "Behind the Mask" Thread

I dont get why they used the call and response from the Bucharest show in the background. :S The bit just before Wanna Be Startin Somethin.

I guess it does sound quite cool, just seems strange to use live performance vocals in a song.

I am totally addicted to the song though. I think its excellent, makes me feel good :) haha

Call and response? Hmmm...i'ma have to listen to the song again to see what you mean :). I really love this track, the beat and melody is stuck in my head, it's probably my fav track of the 7 tracks.

Ohh.. yeah it could be from there.. but he did that in a lot of concerts so I think its tough to say for sure ;)

On a side note, anyone else really love the Saxophone in this song? It fits perfectly IMO :D

Re: The "Behind the Mask" Thread

This song is BRILLIANT...I could do without the live audience part...but man, his vocals, the beatboxing, and the saxophone are sexy as hell....Such an '80's vibe to it...it's amazing..
