Will You Be There is my most played Michael Jackson song. The song is beautiful. I love everything about it. The base, the arrangement, Michael's vocal and the heartfelt poem at the end.
It doesn't matter how many times I hear the song. Each time I hear it, I'm touched. The lyrics are so prophetic. The live performances of the song in the MTV 10th anniversary show and the Dangerous tour are very sensual.
I love both MITM and WYBT the most but we can only choose one
MITM takes me back to my childhood and discovering the magic of Michael and makes me think if Moonwalker and makes me think of Michael as the humanitarian and the wonderful love he held for all of us, not just his fans but for the whole world, amazing - especially Grammy Awards performance he did!! Then WYBT is a real fan song, where we all feel like an army of L.O.V.E and it expresses Michael's sentiment so well, it shows his vulnerability and his need for love and care and it is soulful and uplifting....
WYBT is an easy winner for me but i'm surprised HTW is so far behind the others. i'd put it second. the chorus justs lifts u at the end. and i adore the bit when the little girl's singing at the very end and then for one line mj comes in on the 'heal the world we live in ' bit.
that always gets to me...
Mitm is great.
but wybt has much stronger message then mitm. If you listen careful to wybt you can interpret so many things in this song.
Mitm is only about to make something out of yourself.
wybt is about love, friendship, pain, need and god (although i'm not religious).
And MJ loved to end his concerts with that song. It brought reflexion on ourselves...
MJ wanted to change the world, he could only give a pulse but the world had to follow him to make a better world.
"Man In The Mirror" is such a beautiful, inspirational song, but I think I like "Will You Be There" just a bit more. Michael's vocals are so incredible and soulful on the song. It really touches me. I love WYBT.
Heal The World! All three are top songs, but Heal The World does it for me! Will never forget hearing Heal The World on radio the day before the album came out. They played short snippets of a handful of songs from Dangerous, and when they came to that song I cried... It got such a beautiful melody!
