J5 "Everybody Is A Star"

A cover from Sly And The Family Stone(listen to the original Here). The Jackson 5 certainly picked it up a notch. However, I feel Michael's preadolescent vocals didn't fit in very good(besides his backups). Just thought it too high-pitched for this gourmet funkedelic tune. Otherwise, The Jackson 5 have definitely outdone Sly and The Family Stone!



Lyrics

EVERYBODY IS A STAR Lyrics
Who would rain and chase the dust away
Everybody wants to shine
Who comes out on a cloudy day
'Til the sun that does you proud
When the system tries to bring you down
Every hand to shine tonight
You don't need darkness to do what you think is right
Ooh, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa
Ooh, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa
Ooh, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa
EVERYBODY IS A STAR
I can feel it when you shine on me
Oh, I love you for who you are
Not the one you feel you need to be
Ever catch a falling star
Ain't no stopping 'til it's in the ground
EVERYBODY IS A STAR
One big circle going round and round
Ooh, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, w…

Coming Home

An outtake from The Jackson Five studio album "Maybe Tomorrow".
Michael's voice-box start going through the first birth-pangs of change.



Lyrics
Sun is in the sky
Shining everywhere
But I don't see the light
And no one seems to care
That's why I'm packing up again
Gotta leave this empty life
Got a ticket in my hand
So look for me tonight
Baby, I'm coming home, coming home
Coming home (Baby, won't you leave on the porchlight)
So happy I'm coming home, coming home
Where I belong
Baby, I ain't too proud to get on my knees
To tell you how I miss you
To tell you how I miss my baby
You can say hello (You can say hello)
And make me feel alive (Make me feel alive)
Ooh, Heaven only knows (Heaven only knows)
Happy tears will fill my eyes
Oh, you can turn away
And make me wanna cry
Tell me it's too late
But I got to know I tried
That's why I'm coming home, I'm coming home
Ooh baby, I'm coming home (Baby, won't you leave on the porchlight)
So happy I'm c…

You Ain't Giving Me What I Want

"You Ain't Giving Me What I Want So I'm Taking It All Back" was a Jackson 5 outtake meant to be on "ABC". but was cut out at the very last minute. The name originally went by "A, B, C, & D".

 From Michael Jackson's strong high-pitched vocals to the remarkable harmonies, I'm shocked to say another priceless track has been left to collect dust on the shelf.
