I don't think this song was an 'underdog' song of Stevie's. Did you seen the video to it when it came out? It was very recognized on TV. Maybe it was VH1 or MTV, but it played like a 'big deal'. To me, the bass-line was so killer-stompin', when Michael Jacksons' 'Bad' was released, it's bass-line was wimpy in comparison to 'Skeletons'. Now listen to 'Bad' and imagine the bass clobbering u over the head the way Stevie does here. ----- Hope you don't mind...I used your comment vyntage1!.
