J5 "Never Had A Dream Come True"

 We are greeted with another cover from Stevie Wonder on a Jackson 5 LP-"ABC". "Never Had A Dream Come True" is from his 1970 album "Signed, Sealed, Delivered".

 Looks like they've out-done Stevie on the harmonies. This and Who's Lovin' You certainly add a bunch.

Lyrics


Everybody has something they have to leave behind
One regret from yesterday that just seems to grow with time
There's no use lookin back or wonderin
How it could be now or might've been
Oh this I know but still I can't find ways to let you go
Chorus
I never had a dream come true
Till the day that I found you
Even though I pretend that Ive moved on
You'll always be my baby
I never found the words to say
Your the one I think about each day
And I know no matter where life takes me to
A part of me will always be with you

Somewhere in my memory I lost all sense of time
Soon my road can never be cause yesterday is all that fills my mind
There's no use lookin back or wonderin
How it could now or might've been
Oh this I know but still I can't find ways to let you go

Chorus

You'll always be the dream that fills my head
Yes you will, say you will you know you will o baby
You'll always be the one I know I'll never forget
There's no use lookin back or wonderin
Cause love is a strange and funny thing
No matter how I try and try I just can't say goodbye
No no no no no

Chorus

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…
