Beat It Demo

 Not to be confused with the demo on The "This Is It" Soundtrack, this demo tape of "Beat It" is what Wil.I.Am took and mixed with Fergie for The 25th Anniversary of Thriller.

 Notice the guitar rift is a lot more distinct and the drum snare is mechanical and not organic(like the official version). Also Eddie Van Helen had not been called in yet(I believe whoever uploaded this demo on Youtube inserted the knocking towards the middle). And so the climax had not been filled in.

 When it comes to the conclusion, the track stripes down until the last rift lays down the final note(which gives the tune a unique spin).

 This is just one of many Midi tapes Michael Jackson owns of the song Beat It in his vault. Listen below...
