Leave Me Alone

Only available in Europe, Leave Me Alone nevertheless became a radio sensation!

 The single never made it right here in the States. But the U.K. topped it out at #2. The song itself became a radio sensation over night!

 The composition has an 80ish sensation. With a strong beat prominent during that time. Much like repetitively slamming wood in a carpenters warehouse or iron in a factory. I love the strong keys getting beefed-up to a tune.Hard to believe. All this comes from Michael Jackson's head?!

Leave Me Alone-The Short Film

 The video starts out on a typical 80's hydrolix scene where everything falls up from his RV. Many artists have used this feat on there music videos if you'd could remember staying up late watching MTV.

 Here we have Michael's first satire on the media. Labeling the tabloids as hound dogs. Desperate to get a story. Then hype it up to their fancy. So more people would buy their headlines.

 From the hyperbolic chamber, Elizabeth's shrine, to The Elephant Man. Although many artists have done such feats, for Michael it just got way out of hand.

 Eventually Jackson portrays himself as Gulliver. Just like how they tied him up on small island. So yellow journalism attempts to bound Mr. Jackson on Neverland. In the short film, Michael breaks free from the constraints of the media. Unfortunately, reality never allowed him that luxury.

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…
