History

History now stands as the most remixed track of all time

 As a signature tradition, we are again treated to a feel-good "change the world" tapestry Ballad. A synchronization of Pop, Classical Music, Hip-Hop, and Soul all brought together under a new anthem. Michael Jackson calls on all of us as American patriots to create our own history.

 Our founding fathers stood up against England's iron fist. Thus, America was born. Slavery was outlawed, second class citizenship ceased to exist, women attained the right to vote all because of those brave few who weren't afraid to stand up for what's right. Who will be the brave citizen to stand up against the Goliaths of the pharmaceutical industry? "Everyday create your history. Every path you take your writing your legacy." Remember, with each passing year comes a whole new page of the story about your life. Great spirits like Walt Disney, The Wright Brothers, and a couple dozen others were nobodies(just like you and I are right now).

 Michael invited the group Boyz To Men plus The Andrea Crouch and a New York childrens choir to contribute in the background. He, Terry Lewis and James 111 each wrote the lyrics together. Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis both helped Michael mix and record the track.

A few notable quotations include...

"Some men see things as they are and say why.....I dream things that never were and say why not?"-Robert Kennedy

"It's one small step for a man.....One.....Giant leap for mankind"(footprint)-Niel Armstrong

"I am the Edison phonograph"Thomas Edison

 June 13th, 2005. Millions of Jackson freaks(myself included);) eagerly watched the final verdict. What many thought would become the next OJ Simpson trial.

 But then the tables turned. Michael Jackson was found innocent on all 13 counts charged against him! Truth had finally won over in court. History had just been made!

 To mark the day, Jackson approved this song to air on michaeljackson.com with the details of the case! Afterwords, he was disillusioned and exhausted. But still managed to attend the Neverland Bash.

...And no. There were no toasters around.:)

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…
