not so much ‘album songs’ as the title implies, rather a summary of the era in general 83-85 💜
I like when he briefly sings without the music. it’s such a pure and beautiful tone💜 one of the fewest moments we have of Michael in the studio recording one of his hits. history was being made. a rare treasure.So cute! when he does a couple of dance steps in the middle 💕
This performance should be dug every moment of every day. This performance lives in the caverns of my brain space, shining a light on the rest of me.Been really digging this specific performance as of late:
HE DOES!!! That grit in his voice is so effing sexy I want to hurl myself somewhere, anywhere. Also, the entire vocal performance is just 🔥A big reason is because he just sounds fantastic here,
I can't even function over this. I LOVE how he smoothly fixes it and then laughs... he is both so adorable and so devastatingly sexy, we need a whole new language.but also his marvelous recovery after his, um, "malfunction" (LOL) is just great.
I'm obsessed with this Bad tour outfit too. It's my favorite one. I love the 87 outfits too, but the '88 ones just make me a whole new person lol.I also just really love this Bad tour outfit, it's one of my faves, so that helps too. I know live performances of this song are usually more energetic, but I still love it a lot.
I am never, ever, ever, too busy for Michael. I am spending less time on MJJC just because I have to, but Michael consumes easily 80% of my brain on a daily basis. It's a miracle I am still living any kind of a life.
AHHHH I JUST REWATCHED IT MYSELF AND NOW I'M DEAD ON THE FLOOR. Send flowers. It's all over for me.Also, did you peep that this performance is where a very incredible "thrusting" gif comes from??? Immediately visit 1:52 and enjoy whatever full body reaction this gives you.
Just had a quick look. Don't think I've seen this one. I'm gonna save it for later. Thanks for posting.my video of the day 💜
Exactly so. It is *his* creation but it is a piece of work that absolutely includes his interpretation of so many influences. It's both at the same time as it should be whenever a creative genius is doing their thing.I feel this one performance captured the essence of Michael as an artist; from the clothes, to the moves, to the song, it was all his creation - or at least his interpretation of multiple influences.
Agree 100%. This was tv history being made before our eyes. A museum is the proper place.I feel that these items should have been safely kept in a museum somewhere
I do love Michael but I wish he wasn't always giving his iconic costumes away. It's lovely that he was so generous and so unconcerned about material possessions but it's frustrating all the same.- or at least within the family. I fully agree with the estate’s comments about the letter claiming that Michael gave the socks from Motown 25 ,to ex manager frank dileo.
Totally underrated and I'll never understand why. It so beautifully enhances his dance movements.the undershirt is underrated and made the outfit pop even more. it coordinated perfectly with the rest of it.
