Dangerous: The Short Films

Michael Jackson would go on to release Dangerous-The Short Films in 1993

 As Moonwalker represented the "Bad Era", Michael Jackson releases "Dangerous: The Short Films" to represent The Dangerous Era!

 From the heated controversy of Black or White to those erotic dance moves which should be left "In the Closet", all his videos are neatly tucked in here with extras filling in the gaps(yet by no means fillers). These include behind the scenes footage, media frenzy, The Super Bowl XXVII Halftime, NAACP Image Awards, and a Pepsi ad at the end. This film eventually got nominated 2X platinum.

 However, I did not like "Braze Yourself" very much. I thought they made him out to be an idol which we all know Michael wouldn't dare claim. Everything else is superb except "In the Closet". Which is anywhere from PG-13 to rated-R.

Below are some clips.

Brace Yourself

I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. It could be Michael wants us to visualize being him for a day. Not just the joys but through the sorrows. Being famous ain't what it's all out to be. Watch it Here.

 Take a trip down memory lane with Michael Jackson and meditate on his childhood. While he sings "I'll Be There" on keys. Pretty soon you'll find little Mike dueting with his adult persona. Watch it Here.

 Now here's The NAACP Awards!

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…
