Lady Of Summer - Classical Piece
Hollywood Tonight - Self-explanatory
Shut Up And Dance - Dance track with the only vocals present being from the co-writer (Eric Kirkland), an impersonator related to some people who worked with MJ (such as his choreographer and guitarist) claims that Michael Prince showed a few seconds of the song to him of which he sings in a podcast
Rock Tonight - Instrumental unrelated to the song Rocker
Adore You - Song similar to Will You Be There and began work at least as far back as 2004. Has no vocals apart from a choir that's described as "haunting".
Breath - Unknown.
I Am That One - Unknown.
Everybody Wants To Be A Movie Star - Unknown.
Beautiful Girl - Self-explanatory.
MJ Barri Gibb Song - Unknown. May be referring to either Heat Of The Night or All In Your Name?
Scared Of The Moon - Self-explanatory.
Thank Heaven - MJ spoken intro (dedicating the song to "my son Michael Jackson Jr") but the song itself is sung by a woman + choir. Sounds like a lullaby/nursery rhyme.
Ghost Of Another Lover
- Self-explanatory.
Gloucestershire/Days In Gloucestershire - Self-explanatory.
Throwing Your Life Away - Self-explanatory.
Leaving Today To Behin (?) - Unknown.
Lonely Bird - Unknown, could be a rework of the song mentioned in the Mexico Deposition.
Broken Chair - Instrumental (song isn't about a broken chair lol).
Red Eye - Guitar track with Chinese influence.
Ways You Love Me (The Way You Love Me) - Self-explanatory.
The Loser/I Was The Loser - Rework of I Am A Loser with the only difference being the chorus that now goes "I Was The Loser" instead of "I Am A Loser"
Best Of Joy - Self-explanatory.
D.I.E (rumoured to stand for Dance Is Entertainment) - Rock song described as “epic. Hard hitting drums and bass with really strong strings. It also has these moments where the music stops and a haunting choir type thing comes in creating an ominous build, then the beat drops again.”
Is She Coming Back - Unknown.
Dark Lady/H20 - Song from 2008. One of the rare tracks with a full scratch vocal. MJ sings the vocal melody in one continuous take. No stops or breaks. There are barely any sensical lyrics in the entire song, but the vocal melody is very fleshed out. The words "dark lady" are the first words MJ sings in the Dark Lady verses. He sings it twice in both the 1st and 2nd verse.
Bottom Of My Heart - Instrumental.
Hold My Hand - Self-explanatory.
Remember What I Told You - Song recorded at Michael's Vegas home in 2008. 90 seconds in length. Similar to “Speechless”. opens acappella and “builds into an epic finale.”
Can't Stop Lovin' You - Unknown.
Silent Spring - Instrumental.
You Were There - Unknown.
Don't Walk Away - Instrumental. Unrelated to Don't Walk Away from the Invincible album.
Coco Butter - Instrumental.
Too Late To Turn Back Now - Unknown, apparently Michael was planning to record the vocals in London.

Bottom Of My Heart - Rework of I Have This Dream. Only an instrumental.
It’s worth noting that Damien Shields said that this longstanding rumor is false, and “Bottom of My Heart” is a completely separate song. I’m thinking it’s a “Streetwalker”/“Dangerous” situation, where even though one track influenced the creation of another, there’s no immediate sonic similarities between the two.

Anyone else curious as to what MJ had planned for Hold My Hand after it leaked? I like to think that he was going to make his own solo version with a different instrumental.

Bottom Of My Heart is Much Too Soon Early Version that Michael did in 80's

so he didnt work on these tracks during 2001-2009?:unsure:
The only four songs on Michael that were worked on between 2006-2009 are “Hold My Hand,” “Hollywood Tonight,” “The Way You Love Me,” and “Best of Joy.” Everything else consisted of outtakes that (as far as we know) MJ hadn’t thought about in years.
He only planned to release Another Day on a future album as he liked the song but thought that it was too hard for the Invincible album. I don't know about Much Too Soon though.
This is the exact same line MJ gave Rodney Jerkins about “Escape.” I don’t know if I buy it. I can’t imagine MJ would listen to those two songs, both of which are arguably better than 90% of Invincible, and would say, “They’re too good for this one, let’s wait for another.” That’s not at all how he worked.

I don't know, it's exactly what he did to a lot of songs throughout his career (TWYLM, Chicago 1945, Cheater, APWNN, Buffalo Bill and many others for example) so I totally buy it. Besides take a look at MJ's reaction when it came to certain songs leaking, when the Thriller outtakes leaked he didn't seem to mind but when it was a song that he had plans for (Escape and Hold My Hand) he'd be pretty upset. I do believe that he was going to use the songs at some point.

I would love to hear these two songs in particular. I want to hear Michael's vocals from the last few years of his life.
