I Found That Girl

 "I found That Girl" comes from the highly acclaimed Jackson Five album ABC.

 For a change, big brother Jermaine takes the lead. While little Michael does the back-ups along-side Tito, Jackie, and Marlin. This was right before his voice cracked.

 A classic cotton-candy romantic that swept many pre-adolescent girls out of their socks! So much so, the Billboard charts featured this as an A-side on their major hit "The Love You Save". You can purchase the vinyl right Here!


Lyrics


Mama, oh mama, I found that girl
Mama, oh mama, I found that girl

Mama, life for me now is a new sensation
Just like you said it would be with the right situation
Now love has a meaning and I have a goal
This feeling inside makes yesterday a hundred years old

Now I understand what is it to be a man
The way you explained to me that day
You said only the right girl can make me feel this way

(Chorus)
Mama, I think I found that girl
Mama, I think I found that girl

Mama, she's that beautiful dream that I dream each night
She's like that bird of love on whose wings I'm in flight
She's those words left when there's no more to say
She's my sunshine at the end of a perfect day

All this LETS me find a reason to be alive
The day when you sat me upon your knees
You said only the right girl could be all these things

(Chorus)

You said, "Son, go and search around
There's a good girl who's out there to be found."

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…
