I remember when I first heard this song a couple years ago, I really liked the Halloween-ish vibe of it and I was always interested to know if there was a more complete version recorded before it got canned and what's the story behind it?
We know that it was recorded for the 1993 film, Addams Family Values, along with Ghosts and Is It Scary (which were released later on), but then contractual obligations got in the way and as such, MJ and Paramount Pictures were forced to cut ties with each other. Most people assume it was because the allegations that happened the same year, but that seems to not be the case.
Another thing we know is that a short film was also being produced for Is It Scary, and a workprint was released a few years ago. However, that got canned as well, but was later turned into the longer short film, Ghosts.
I'm curious if anyone here has knowledge of how much work got done on it and if anyone has been able to hear a HQ version of the song?
