This Is It Snippet Leaks!

 A 43 second snippet to Michael Jackson's new song(not sure if it'll be a single as Sony's giving us the run-a-round) This Is It! has leaked onto the internet! It appears to be from the 1980's during the Thriller Era. Though a(currently unleaked) new version does exist and will be unveiled on Columbus Day! Either this snippet is The Orchestra version, Sony is ripping us off by stamping the concert title onto a demo, or there are three known versions to this song(i.e. 1981-This Is It!, New Orchestra Version, and new Pop Ballad).

 In 1980, Michael Jackson exclusively wrote and co-produced(with Paul Anka) This Is It. Originally slatted for The Jacksons Triumph Album. But was cut for unknown reasons. Later, Michael would submit it to Safire in 1991 for her album "I Wasn't Born Yesterday". She changed the title to "I Never Heard".

 Judging by the clip, the lyrics are a bit different from her take. Stay tuned for the new version on Monday-Columbus Day!

This is it
Here I stand
I'm the light of the world
I feel grand

Life is love
I can feel
and I know
yes for sure
it is real

and it feel as though
I've seen your face a thousand times
and you said you really know me
yourself?
and I know that you were gonna(clip ends)

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…
