Just Good Friends (4:05)

Cover of Bad

From Bad and 10 other releases

Michael recorded this as a duet with Stevie Wonder, for his album, Bad, released in September 1987.

Michael was a huge admirer of Stevie: “Stevie is, you know - God, I’ve learnt so much from him by just sitting in on his sessions, and talking to him and listening… he’s phenomenal… I had an interview with Geroge Harrison in England, we did it together, and we were speaking of Stevie and he said, and these are his exact words, he said, Stevie Wonder makes him wanna retire. He said Paul (McCartney) feels the same way.

    MJ does Synth pop. Reminds me of Scritti Politti, for all the good reasons.

    I think this is the weakest song on the whole album, and that's saying something since if it was placed in some other album it probably would have been one of the best tracks... with this said, Michael's and Stevie's performance is outstanding. True genius interpreters.

    Anyone seen the Spike Lee 'Michael Jackson: Bad 25' documentary? They spoke about this track as if it was some sort of embarrassment... I think it's my favourite on the whole album!

    Not the best on the album IMO, but the bassline is fucking awesome
