J5 "Just A Little Misunderstanding"

 A Jackson 5 cover of The Contours "Just A Little Misunderstanding". I realize you can't have to many covers on an album. Yet this is priceless! They've should've done what "Terry Lewis and The News" did in 1993. Release an album of all previously covered songs. Now that I bet would sell(listen to the original Contours Version)!


Just A Little Misunderstanding - Jackson 5

Lyrics


It's a cold boy
To hurt his girl
And watch her walk away cryin'
When all along
He knows he's wrong
To be so hard on a girl that's tryin'
I was so unkind to hurt you so
Goin' out of my mind
I just gotta let you know, yeah

Baby, I can't let you go
I realize I hurt you so
Our love surely can be mended
It's just a little misunderstanding

I remember you said
You will always care
Until death should we do part
Then it surely must be
My destiny
To die the death of a broken heart
So before I become a wonderin' rover
Let's get together
And talk things over

Baby, I can't let you go
I realize I hurt you so
Our love surely can be mended
It's just a little misunderstanding

That's all it is
Baby, let's talk it over
Oh yeah

We've been lovin' so long
That it just seems wrong
That our love could never be
You could be anywhere
Baby, I wouldn't care
If I thought that you needed me
All the chains in the world
Couldn't hold me
Like a robot your love
Controls me

Baby, I can't let you go
I realize I hurt you so
Our love surely can be mended
It's just a little misunderstanding

Baby, please, forgive me
Let's talk it over

Little Susie

Some believe this to be based on a true story. However, it's been more or less confirmed as a fictional tale. Partly Inspired by Gottfried Helnwein's artwork. Who is famous for his emotional imagery-Especially of children(in fact, Michael used his Lichtkind(Child of Light) painting to depict this song on The History Vol. 1 Booklet).

 In this tragic tale, Little Susie took her own life because of gross indifference to her well-being. One by one, her folks passed away. Father abandoned them, leaving mother and gram-father to wither in the grave.

 Years later, she was grafted into an unloving family. Though she was adopted, they did not take her in. Loneliness seeped it's cold dead fingers upon her tender heart. Until she couldn't bear it much longer. Although it was technically an accident. She subconsciously threw herself down the stairs to escape the pain.

 Although the story is clearly fictitious, Michael was proving a point. "Neglect can kill. Like a knife …

Invincible Session Outtakes

Here is an exhaustive list of all Invincible tracks that Either was sent to production hell or never quite made the list. According to Rodney Jerkins, there are a heck of a lot of finished outtakes from this session. Enough to fill multiple albums! So I lied. This is by no means an exhaustive list.:)

Fall Again Demo-I knew something spectacular was missing from his latest album! I Just couldn't quite lay my finger on it. I'm glad Michael took time away to be with his sick son. But this track fits in this session like a jigsaw piece. This beautiful Romantic Ballad was co-produced by Walter Afanasieff and Michael Jackson.

Beautiful Girl Demo-I can just see this on a soundtrack for a Romantic movie. Claiming top chart positions worldwide. But for unknown reasons, it was cut at the last moment.

 Michael Jackson and Tito both collaborated on an instrumental take which was also shelved.

The Way You Love Me-Sounds very much like something McCartney would do. With the elegant piano a…
