I'm So Blue

 "I'm So Blue" is a smooth funky Balled ever so slightly reminiscent of "La La(Means I Love You)". Only with an 80's glare and a Steve Wonder-sque harmonica. Although obviously unfinished, this slow Balled is crisp and fairly raw. However both Bill Bottrel and Bruce Swedein swore they never heard the track. So that leaves either Q or someone else in the mix of possible co-producers.

 This is not my favorite outtake, but I do enjoy the slow groove and especially those powerful vocals at songs end.

Lyrics


There we are as cold as ice
Asking me to love you
And often be your friend
There you are, I walk alone
Telling me to love you
And often we all did

She told me, she'd forgiving me
A lifetime, love forever true
But she left me for another man
And I'm singing to keep from feelin' blue

All I know is
Tschada dada dada daa (oh no)
Tschada dada dada daa
Tschada dada dada daa
Come on set me free (set me free)

Here I am, so all alone
And I am so sad and lonely
Tell me, what will I do
I can't give, I'm all alone
You used to love me
I feel I am your blue

They told me you should sing a song
Of happy, when your feelin' blue
I'm singing for so very long
Still I am crying, tell me what should I do

All I know is
Tschada dada dada daa (oh no)
Tschada dada dada daa
Tschada dada dada daa
Come on set me free (set me free)

She told me she'd forgiving me
A lifetime, love so guaranty (guaranty)
But she left me for another man
And I'm singing, crying helplessly

But I'll keep singing
Tschada dada dada daa (oh no)
Tschada dada dada daa (oh my my)
Tschada dada dada daa
Come on set me free (set me free, wooh)

Tschada dada dada daa (ooh, and I keep crying)
Tschada dada dada daa (that's what I want, please)
Tschada dada dada daa (hold on, hold on)
Come on set me free (set me free)

All I know is
Tschada dada dada daa (wooh, wooh, wooh)
Tschada dada dada daa (wooh I, ooh)
Tschada dada dada daa
Come on set me free (set me free, wooh)

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…
