It is this that leads me to suspect he had many songs that were ghostwritten. The foreword to Jean Beauvoir's memoir "BET MY SOUL ON ROCK 'N' ROLL: DIARY OF A BLACK PUNK ICON" by a certain MJ protege is interesting to say the least...
- Michael’s habit of dismissing his talents as divine intervention or something along those lines annoys the hell out of me. I would love to see a serious exploration of his songwriting and production process from his viewpoint, but he refused to elaborate unless he had to (e.g., the 1993 deposition).
- Who Do You Know sounds great production-wise but is one of the worst demos lyrically. Composition sounds like Paul Anka collab meets Kung Fu Fighting by Carl Douglas with I'm So Blue type lyrics.
- Pitch correction in Invincible tracks is one thing I can look over, but what really annoys me is the "for me" cut from R. Kelly in One More Chance and the fake note extensions in Speechless and You Are Not Alone.
On vocal impersonators:
- Jean Walker is overrated and his voice has not aged well
- Jason Malachi still does one of the best grits, Jeffrey Perez may have more control but has a kiddy tone to his voice
- Marcus Joseph Williams exaggerates too much of the "bubbly" voice and struggles elsewhere
