Other Dangerous Era Happenings

The Michael Jackson 411 Dangerous Era...

1. February 10th, 1993 another record is broken when "Michael Talks To Oprah". The highest rating interview of all time! 100,000,000 viewers! Revealing his love life with Brook Shields and some mysterious 80's chick(I Believe from "The Way You Make Me Feel" or Ola Ray from "Thriller"). Folks started to understand and appreciate the guy. But of course right before the allegations rear their ugly faces. Go Here to watch the full interview.

2. Michael hires Sigfried & Roy to produce some magic tricks throughout the Dangerous tour with David Copperfield. Michael sang and produced "Mind Is The Magic". Appreciating the hard work they put in. The Toaster Effect and Rocket Man are to their credit.

3. June 18th saw the release of Jackson's "Dancing the Dream" indirectly promoted by his sister Janet on the 35th Grammy awards(see Dangerous-The Short Films to watch the show.

4. Merging his catalog with Sony 50/50 is considered the biggest deal ever struck in music history. Earning him at least $200 million. 100 of which was upfront. The rest between a span of a few years!

6. On August 24th Michael was accused of fondling a child by a money-hungry father! But was forced by his insurance company to pay an undisclosed amount of money to the family. After brutally attacking his reputation, the media did little(if anything) to repair it. The child himself was on Michael's side. His Father forced him(against his will) into testifying otherwise. More below...

7. On his 35th birthday Michael planned a huge Neverland bash. Whoever won the contest received a V.I.P pass and have dinner at Neverland and stay overnight with the King of Pop!

...And that concludes my review of The Dangerous Era. I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I have. Our next stop takes us over to the History Era! Stay tuned...

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…
