Michael Jackson & Queen

Around "Thriller" and "Victory", Freddie Mercury(the third member of the band "Queen") worked with Michael Jackson. Unfortunately the fruits of their labors never saw the light of day. The reason: both were too busy to bring the finishing touches. Did you know Freddie was this close to being featured on Thriller? You can listen to the short interview Here.

Both recorded 2 songs together with another solely vocalized by Michael. To this day we don't know how their own version of "Victory" went. But we do know of two versions of "There must be more to life then this" with a rare "State of Shock" duet.

There Must Be More To Life Than This - Michael Jackson & Freddie Mercury

Lyrics
There must be more to life than this
There must be more to life than this
How do we cope in a world without love
Mending all those broken hearts
And tending to those crying faces

There must be more to life than living
A better way for us to survive
Why should it be just a case of black or white
There must be more to life than this

Why is this world so full of hate
People dying everywhere
And we destroy what we create
People fighting for their human rights
But we just go on saying c'est la vie
So this is life

There must be more to life than killing
There must be more than meets the eye
What good is life, if in the end we all must die
There must be more to life than this

There must be more to life than killing
There must be more to life than this
I live in hope for a world filled with love
Then we can all just live in peace

There must be more to life, much more to life
There must be more to life, more to life than this
