I looked up Patrick Conneen and he is a producer/engineer who did work with Michael Jackson, I think for a short time. I did just reach out to him and message him asking for some info. Not sure if I will get any response.

But I did this search, where are the people like Joe Vogel who are supposed to be scholars with this kind of information? Have you ever seen anything written about this song? I haven't. But I was able to find it just doing some quick research. Hopefully I can find out more.

I've never seen or heard about this song. Very interesting.

There's also another song from the 2000s that's not mentioned anywhere but it's also on the database:

Did you guys know that if you actually go to the Copyright Office in Washington, you can listen to everything that's listed here?

I don't know if you can. And if you can, how much does it cost? And I'd have to assume security is tight or else you could record everything on your phone. A lot I need to look into.

You can! I believe the cost varies based on how much/what you want. Another user mentioned that in the UK such information is free, but unfortunately the US is all about the green.

If I’m not mistaken, you’re brought into a separate room and can only listen to everything on headphones. No recording allowed, though I’m not sure of the cell phone policy.

Ok, I'll have to go. I'm willing to spend $100's of US dollars to listen to the vault and I will take notes and share. I have an incredible memory when it comes to music.

As a MJ fan community, we need this. I'll have to plan a trip soon. It's a 5-hour drive for me.

Is it allowed to use your own headphones?

I just looked and it might be $200USD per hour but I don't know how long it takes them to retrieve songs. I'm willing to spend that for several hours. I really have no budget for something like this. I would come prepared with a list and everything. I'd then share all my notes here.

You should ask Damien on twitter about the procedure.

I might have been wrong about that, though. At the British Library in what used to be called the BL Sound Archive (might just go by BL Sounds now, not sure) you could certainly listen to anything from the collection for free. But that was stuff that was recorded and released, IIRC.

The US Copyright Office is holding material that was never released but has been deposited in order to establish the copyright (I assume). So maybe that's why there is a fee. It's a whole different arrangement, a different type of collection that you're accessing. Maybe there's a legal aspect to this that doesn't apply to material that's already out there in the public domain.

Damien once said on Twitter that the trip overall was in the thousands, but he was also flying in from overseas and living in hotels.

@Derek1984

From this moment on you are my God. I will make sacrifices to honor and bless you. I’m going on a diet and will stop shaving until you return with a super detailed 10 page review of every song you heard. I get kind of cranky when I can’t devour unlimited amounts of food so hurry up!

Ha! I do plan on going... But I need to confirm with the US Copyright office that I can do this. I just need more information before I plan a trip, obviously. I'm not sure when I would go... Maybe in the next few months. Just depends on how this process works.

My first listens would be the late 70's and 80's stuff. That's what I have the most interest in. Once I get more details, I'll let everyone know.

If it comes to fruition, I will post notes on every track I listen to here. I know how much this means to the community.

If this was possible i think this would happen all the time of people listening to tracks. i dont think its this easy how many songs have already been deposited in the mj copyright office over the last 10 years

I'm a 13 hour dr away from Memphis tn & I travel by my car all over doing my shows. I'm now putting that in my list to go to the copyright office. So if the weather is not too bad in mid jan-feb (snow) then I will pay whatever to listen to them & will lay them out detail by detail here or on a private youtube link & with me.. u never know...I might just come bk with some type of audio via spy gear lol. I just can't hear that music & then never hear it again if u get my drift. So hopefully I can try to make this happen as well as @Derek1984
