It was written, composed and co-produced by Jackson, and produced by Quincy Jones. "Speed Demon" is a funk rock song whose lyrics pertain to driving fast. The song was released on October 12, 1989, as a promotional single for both the album and the 1988 film Moonwalker. The song received mixed reviews from contemporary critics.

Music video: Jackson filmed a promotional video for the song, which originally was a segment of his 1988 film Moonwalker. Directed by Will Vinton, the video was produced by Vinton, Jerry Kramer, Michael Jackson and Frank Dileo. In the video, Jackson, in an attempt to avoid overzealous fans (even The Noid), disguises himself as a rabbit named Spike, but ends up taunting the fans into chasing him. During the chase, he morphs into other celebrities, including Sylvester Stallone, Tina Turner and Pee-wee Herman;surprisingly enough, the set that Jackson was running on was very similar to the one in Pee-wee's Big Adventure, which was released 2 years prior . After finally losing the fans, he removes the costume, which comes to life and challenges him to a dance-off.


Lyrics:

I'm Headed For The Border
It's On My Mind
And Nothin' Really Matters
I've Got To Be On Time
Look In The View Mirror
Is He Hot On My Tracks
Is He Getting Nearer
I Feel Some Heat Is On
My Back

(Speed Demon)
Speedin' On The Freeway
Gotta Get A Leadway
(Speed Demon)
Doin' It On The Highway
Gotta Have It My Way
(Speed Demon)
Mind Is Like A Compass
I'm Stoppin' At Nothin'
(Speed Demon)
(He Say) Pull Over Boy And
Get Your Ticket Right . . .

And Nothin' Gonna Stop Me
Ain't No Stop And Go
I'm Speedin' On The Midway
I Gotta Really Burn This Road

(Speed Demon)
Speedin' On The Freeway
Gotta Get The Leadway
(Speed Demon)
Doin' It On The Highway
Gotta Have It My Way
(Speed Demon)
Mind Is Like A Compass
I'm Stoppin' At Nothin'
(Speed Demon)
(He Say) Pull Over Boy And
Get Your Ticket Right . . .

Speed Demon, You're The
Very Same One
Who Said The Future's In
Your Hands
The Life You Save Could Be
Your Own
You're Preachin' 'Bout My
Life Like You're The Law
Gonna Live Each Day And
Hour Like
For Me There's No Tomorrow

Go! Go! Go! Aaow!

(Speed Demon)
Speedin' On The Freeway
Gotta Get A Leadway
(Speed Demon)
Got Fire In My Pocket
I Just Lit A Rocket
(Speed Demon)
Just Pull Over Boy
And Get Your Ticket Right
(Speed Demon)
Pull Over Boy And
Get Your Ticket Right
(Speed Demon)
Just, Pull Over Boy
And Eat Your Ticket
Pull Over Boy
Pull Over Boy
And Get Your Ticket Right
Ugh!
Aaow!
Uhh!
Hoo!
Get Your Ticket Right
Pull Over Boy-Get
Your Ticket Right
Pull Over Boy And
Get Your Ticket Right
Pull Over Boy
Pull Over Boy And
Get Your Ticket
Eat Your Ticket
Get Your Ticket
Eat Yo', Get Yo', Hoo! Aaow!
Get Your Ticket Right

Speed Demon is the most underrated song from the Bad Era. This song is so funk and so infectious. It's one of my favs from the bad album.
