I was watching live at Wembley 88 with my dad, and when MJ was singing Another Part Of Me, my dad thought he said "I'm sending out a meatloaf" and then he says Michael was a nice fella wasn't he.

She Drives Me Wild:
"She's got that, she wanna know f***tion


I am so happy someone else finally heard that too haha

I loved how m would be so precise in pronouncing his words that sometimes it would turn out to be jacksonnese haha it was one of the best things about him , his voice so unique and remember able and also in fan fiction i would make sure i would try to get it as right as possible. as Barbee said "fill" that precise pronnuction was so true of michael .
I loved michaels voice and accent and the pattern of how he talked , sung, ...lyrically expressed so much.

As a kid I liked the song "Stay, Stay, Stay" when it played on the radio. ("Say, Say, Say", of course lol)

I always thought at the start, Smooth criminal had the line "Ennie are you walking Ennie" instead of Annie are you okay, are you okay Annie".
.
The funniest is that Malaysian Idol Michael Jackson imitator.

"Billy Jing I squash the sheen,
I shave the mumma with ice cream be the one
Who can dance, who will sing in the sun
people always tell me, dont go around breaking young girls sun
Billy Jing is not my glove
She just a girl who says I am the one
"HEEEEHHHHH!!! HEEEEEHHHHHH!!!"

I always thought he said "Just look over your shoulder, honey !" in "I'll Be There", until I heard and read "Just look over your shoulders, honey !" in the great and new Busta Rhymes (featuring Kendrick Lamar) song/music video called "Look Over Your Shoulder". Thank you, Busta ! :)

In the Remember The Time video... when the flame throwing guy is introduced...

Since 1992 I always heard Magic Johnson shouting "Priscilly Pyyyrooo"?
(Like a male version of the name Priscilla. If that even exists. lol)

But is it actually "presen(t)iiing Pyyyrooo"?

I'm still not sure. :D
Anyone?

You're right. He said it like you wrote it. English is not my first language either. In America, it sounds like they don't like the letter "t'" sometimes. :p

Probably a common one, but thought Smooth Criminal was asking Eddie if he was OK :D

When I first listened to "Who Is It", I thought I heard a line like "Don't you judge Michael Bush 'cause I'm lying to myself", and that had me wondering for quite some time XD
Actually it's "Don't you judge of my composure / ‘Cause I'm lying to myself"

In Billie Jean I remember a radio station saying it sounded like MJ was saying The Chair is not my son
It's The Kid is not my son

Keep on like a porn star, Don’t stop till you get it up’


As opposed to the actual version, which is ‘Keep on with the force Don’t stop, Don’t stop ‘till you get enough’ – some people have dirty minds!

No, he is singing Dom Sheldon (the song is called D.S.), but we all know he meant Tom Sneddon.

I must understand Michael quite well, because I've never really had too much trouble knowing what he was saying in his lyrics.

Actually no. He clearly sings Tom Sneddon. - ONLY because he wanted to avoid legal battles etc. did he call the song D.S. - and only because of this - the lyrics is in the HIStory booklet. - I think it is the only song that has lyrics in the booklet. - And that was to avoid a lawsuit. - But no doubt he says Tom Sneddon very clearly in the song.

In ‘D.S.’, Michael Jackson sings ‘Tom Sneddon’ (the real name of the district attorney), not ‘Dom Sheldon’.

He even sings his full name (‘Thomas Sneddon’) at a certain point.

If the song had a completely different lyrical theme, then it would have had more appeal to his fans.

The lyrics of ’Earth Song’ and ‘Childhood’ are also printed in the ‘HIStory’ booklet (so, in total 3 songs).
