Hollywood Tonight is definitely the best catchy song on the album! And at least there is no dilemma about the fact that it is 100% MJ!

A part of the song in the background the chorus makes me think of the chorus in the beginning of the song THE HURT on the VICTORY album!

It's such a shame Michael didn't sing the song THE HURT, I'd love to hear him sing that song.

Re: Hollywood Tonight *Threads Merged*

If you listen to the whole album streaming, it's at 4:53 and 7:10 :wild:

Oh, okay. That's not stuttering...........that's hearing the lyrics "to tinseltown" from both Michael's backgrounds and his lead vocal at the same time !!!

I hear what you are thinking !!!

:yes:

Re: Hollywood Tonight *Threads Merged*

From listening to the album for a few days, the one song that keeps going through my head is 'Hollywood Tonight'. It's so nicely catchy! Don't know if everyone agrees, but I would like to hear the choir slightly longer at the start to build up momentum, and less of the talking in the middle. This song would have been a massive killer if he'd done a bridge.

Re: Hollywood Tonight *Threads Merged*

This song has been on repeat all day for me. I can not get enough of it. The spoken part is a little long for me though.

Re: Hollywood Tonight *Threads Merged*

I was actually just coming in this thread before to say that this song has grown on me more than any other song in the album. I may change my mind about HT as the second single and change it to Monster.

Yeah.It's not that I don't like the song,it's amazing,but it sounds rather unfinished,1/2 of it it's spoken and after a period it's getting repetitive...

I LOVE Monster btw :punk:

Re: Hollywood Tonight *Threads Merged*

Wait, I actually messed up again lol. That post above I meant to put in the MONSTER thread.

HT gets off to a really great start and hits the listener quicker. The only bad thing is that MJ didn't have a chance to finish a bridge and to possibly add in another verse. I think it would, far and away, be his best song in years if only he had been around to finish it.

:(


Honestly, I'm also really catching on to Breaking News. I just don't particularly like the lyrics, especially given that they are redundant with Monster.

Teddy Riley on Twitter:
THAT SONG IS FOR THE WOMEN. ITS A STEPPING OUT SONG, SPREAD THE WORD, TELL YA GIRLFRIEND ''YOU GOING HOLLYWOOD TONIGHT''
http://twitter.com/TeddyRiley1/status/13447041707413504

"Hollywood Tonight" is hot, but it's unfortunate @Taryll is on the track. @TeddyRiley1 should have used his own voice.

Heck yeah I can't wait to change the spoken part. I should've kept my voice and shorten it.

Re: Hollywood Tonight *Threads Merged*

Do you know if an acapella version exists ? I love the song, but I'm so disappointed the voice has been vocoded. Remember Michael didn't like it (interview with Will.i.am in 2008).

Hollywood Tonight (Lyrics)

Lipstick in hand
Tahitian tanned
in her painted on jeans

She dreams of fame
She changed her name
To one that fits the movie screen
She's headed for the big time, that means

She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
It's true, that you, may never ever have that chance again

West bound Greyhound
To tinsel town
Just to pursue her movie star dreams
She's giving hot tricks to men
just to get in
When she was taught that that's not clean
She's headed for the big time, that means

She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
It's true, that you, may never ever have that chance again (that chance again)

[Spoken words:]
She gave up her life, to follow her dreams
Left behind everything, for the movie scene
Nothing more she could want, she was determined to follow her plan
She wanted Hollywood, she wanted it bad
Now that she got her dream, she became a star
It all looked so good, but only good from afar
Imprisoned in every paparazzi's camera, every guy wished they could
Now it's back to reality, for Ms. Hollywood

Lipstick in hand
Tahitian tanned
in her painted on jeans

She dreams of fame
She changed her name
To one that fits the movie screen
She's headed for the big time, that means

She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
It's true, that you, may never ever have that chance again (that chance again)

Re: Hollywood Tonight *Threads Merged*

I'm not a native speaker of English so I'm wondering about the following preposition:

Tahitian tanned
IN her painted on jeans

I don't get the logic of the painted jeans and why is it IN her jeans?

Sorry guys :)

It's just a way to describe what she's wearing and how she looks...Just picture her on her way to Hollywood...'lipstick in hand....Tahitian tanned (she's got a deep tan)...in her painted on jeans...(she's wearing VERY tight, form fitting jeans that look almost painted on her body)

Hope that helps!

One of MJs best songs for the last 20 years with no doubt. Still sad that MJ is not here to put his finishing touch.....

Re: Hollywood Tonight *Threads Merged*

I love this song and i have been blasting it in my car for the last couple of days.
However, i just wish Mike had had the chance to complete it. As someone said in a post above, one more verse and a bridge would have made this track out of this world. Also, i am sure Mike would have ironed out the "To tinsel town" stutter/glitch on the final recording.
