The Way You Make Me Feel

Michael Jackson's third #1 single from the Bad Album

 Becoming the third consecutive single to hit #1 "The Way You Make Me Feel" latched on the top 40 for thirteen straight weeks! Knocking George Harrison's "I Got My Mind Set On You" to #2.

 I love how the beat mimics a cane thumping some radiator. Over and over again. A sound so prominent around the late 80's.

 I could sing just like him. Until good old puberty set in. Gone were the days I could go "hoo hoo" effortlessly. Literally in the top of my lungs. I'm sure guys can relate.

Short Film

 Michael's looking for self-worth. In all the wrong places. A group of street thugs shun him. Thinking he's much too naive for women. While fighting over their own girls.

 A good Samaritan by the wayside calls for his attention. Giving words of wisdom. To make his own decisions and not let those bozos run his life.

 When out of nowhere. A stunningly attractive girl walks down the night alleys. For once in his life, Mike stands up for himself. Pursuing the woman of his dreams.

 The rest was history! After 7 minutes of stalking. Even throwing in a dance sequence. He's gone! nowhere to be found. Desperately, she yearns for his presence. Only to be greeted to a gentle sexy embrace by Michael Jackson!

 Tatiana Thumbtzen was the chicks name. Latoya played as one of her girlfriends. The film was directed by Joe Pytka.

 I this this video demonstrates that Michael wasn't wimpy nor effeminate like the media would have you believe. Rather, he was like any other guy picking up women in his own way.[just don't you guys go out stalkin' weman. As they say it can only happen "in the movies" lol].

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…
