Who Is It

After Michael Jackson's outstanding acappella performance on The Opera Winfrey Show, Who Is It shot up to #1

 :The man is dumb-founded, Cheated, and betrayed. Never was it the same again. Everytime he saw a business card, the pain would only come back to haunt.

 It all started one beautiful morning. They just got back from honeymooning. Michael got up early to make breakfast in bed. But she had other plans.

 Cleverly she puts on a sincere face explaining about an important interview to attend. Knowing first-hand all about these meetings. Michael reaches out to quickly peck her on the cheek to wish good luck.

 walking out the door, she drops a business card behind. Later that morning while off to the studios, he notices vanilla blank card.

 In bold black letters it stared him in the face. She was a professional whore who cheats for a living! Michael burst into tears and left his home to walk the narrow streets of shame. That's were the song begins. Thoughts of guilt and shame rushed like torrents through his mind. "I cannot love another" said he in despair. "How could she do this to me"? "Now she's up and gone and I'm left in this pit of despair"

 In bliss, she returns home thinking Michael how naive he is will never know. Her butler came to the door with a letter.

 Embarrassed and humiliated, she shrugs it off. "he's got his career. I've got mine". Then takes off in a limo with a new lover. Leaving Michael behind.

 In 1993 Oprah conducted an interview where the King of Pop sang "Who Is It" in acappella. Beat Boxing and all. For the first time Michael reveals his skin disorder to the public. How it forced the guy like many others to bleach his skin head to toe.

 Busy touring around the world, Jackson let E'Casanova impersonate him in parts of the music video. He resembles more of the King of Pop then anybody thus far. I believe he's French.

Anyways, here's the short film...

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…
