Michael Jackson If You Don't Love Me

 Here is an outtake from the "Dangerous" sessions. Which I believe could have risen like cream to the top! After the decade of The Awesome 80's-When borrowing sounds from the Golden Age of Rockn' Roll was coming to a close, I believe Michael Jackson would have nicely laid the icing on the cake(with finality)!

 "Thriller", "Beat It", and "Billie Jean" were enough to take video to the next level. So Hot Street, Niteline, and Trouble did not need to further convince us-Of course. "Bad" scored a record 5-6 number one hits. Which did not need, Streetwalker, Cheater, nor Fly Away to further spice the album up(Though they could have made it the next best seller). But I firmly believe if Michael decided to have gone more old school and inserted She Got It "If You Don't Love Me" and "Work That Body" into the final track list, Dangerous sell like candy off the shelves(if a robbery of 30,000 albums after listening to some demos is an eye-popping illustration)!

 But becoming The Best-Selling New Jack Swing Album of All Time(to date) is enough to prove the final outcome was worth it!

If You Don't Love Me

 This number has Rockn' Roll written all over it! The chords, key's and vocal harmonies all scream a nostalgic yearning for for the simple life.

 I absolutely loved the bridge! As a mater of fact, the whole tune makes me wanna get up an move! Not a trace of shame when Michael Jackson shows some passion and emotion(even when it's not fit for a guy to do so. I admire this fella for being different and going against the grain!

 So if your thinking good old fashioned Rockn' Roll and Michael Jackson don't mix. Do yourself a favor and take the time to listen to this number below!




If You Don't Love Me Lyrics

Looking over my photographs
I saw a picture of you and me
Lovin' me deep
I had to write you
just to tell you that
And to find out
if you really love missin' me 'cos
If you don't love me
If you don't love me
If you don't love me
If you don't love me
If you don't need me
Just like I need you
If you don't love me
If I don't love you

And if you don't love me
If you don't love me
And if you don't love me
If you don't love me
And if you don't love me
If you don't love me
What will I do baby?
'Cos I'm in love with you

I told the doctor
I got a broken heart
And my temperature has risen
to a hundred and three
Why don't you write me back
and save me girl?
Tell me what I wanna hear
Like your missin' me 'cos
if you don't love me
if you don't love me
If you don't need me
If you don't need me
If you don't want me
The way I want you
If you don't love me
If you don't love me

And if you don't love me
If you don't love me
And if you don't love me
If you don't love me
And if you don't love me
If you don't love me
What will I do baby?
'Cos I'm in love with you
You!

Oh, baby, baby,
I've been missing you
For such a long, long time ago
You changed your number
and I couldn't call you
So I couldn't tell you so
I had to write you
just to tell you that(awwwww)
I may be kissing
on your photograph(awwww)

If you don't love me
If you don't love me
And if you don't love me
If you don't love me
And if you don't love me
If you don't love me
Baby baby, baby
If you don't love me
If you don't love me
And if you don't want me
I you don't love me
Give it to me
If you don't love me

Baby, baby, baby
If you don't love me
And if you don't love me
And I don't love you
If you don't love me
If you don't need me
If you don't love me
Give it to me
Give it
If you don't love me
Give it to me, baby
If you don't love me
If you don't love me
If you don't love me
Love me
If you don't love me
I really wanna have it
If you don't love me
I'm beggin' my bed
Oooh, ooh

I know what I'm goona do
All I know it is...
Baby, baby, baby, baby

If you don't love me
If you don't love me
If you don't love me
If you don't love me
And if you don't want me
If you don't love me
And if you don't need me
If you don't love me
I'm beggin' my bed
If you don't love me
I'm beggin' my bed
If you don't love me
Give it to me, baby
If you don't love me
And if you don't want me
If you don't love me
If you don't need me
If you don't love me
Give it to me, baby
If you don't love me
If you don't want me
If you don't love me
And if you don't love me
If you don't love me
Aow!
If you don't love me
If you don't love me

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…
