2-4-6-8

 Continuing with their logic on numbers, The Jackson 5 sing "2-4-6-8 who do you appreciate". The rhythm and tune is on key. The bridge features a famous spoken word by Little Michael. If you could remember, "Moonwalker" contained a snippet that goes like this...

"I may be a little fella
But my hearts the size of Taxes.
I give you all the love I can give!"

 A wonderful medley of logic for listening on a classic LP. Very catchy and bubblishous. Go ahead and have a listen...


Lyrics


2,4,6,8,who do you appreciate please say that boy is me
2,4,6,8,who do you appreciate I'm the one who wants to be your baby
Get up early to see you in the morning but you just past me by havin a quarter sitting in the corner
With you I share my time I past your homeroom wishing you were my own girl
Every time I look to see you sit at home but someday you'll notice if you look into my eyes ohhh
2,4,6,8,who do you appreciate please be my pride and joy
2,4,6,8,who do you appreciate I wanna be your lover boy
"I maybe a little fella but my hearts as big as Texas, I have all the love a man can give
And maybe a little bit extra"
Ooooooooooo be my girl(be my girl)
The first time I wonder why you were in but you said that you talked to me
I stick up for your mess you mean more than a friend to me
He's tryin to be a fella just tryin to tell ya but your changin your mind
He's no price charma still he keeps tryin ya
Girl your so unkind
I can love you really really love you i can tell he's just a friend
I can please you really really please you girl give me just a chance
Ooooooooooooooooo
2,4,6,8,who do you appreciate whatever saves me
2,4,6,8,who do you appreciate don't you no i wanna be your baby yeah baby your babe babe babe
He's tryin to be a fella just tryin to tell ya but your changin your mind
He's no price charma still he keeps tryin ya
Girl your so unkind

Chorus till end

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…
