According to the Bad 25 documentary, they wanted to include 'Streetwalker' in the album instead of 'Just Good Friends' (which is also a great track, mind you). I wouldn't have minded that, this is terrific.
Even Leave Me Alone wasn't on the LP version of Bad, so presumably there wasn't the room to 'just add one more song'... unless there was the possibility to treat us with TWO CD-only bonus tracks. :-p Anyway, I love the song but I also adore Another Part of Me. On balance, I think I would have voted with Quincy back in '87. But in any case, this one's awesome, awesome, awesome.
I love this song so much, but there's two things I would change. I would have changed the snare drum to one similar to the one in "Smooth Criminal". And I would have changed the trumpet sound to a more synthesized sound similar to the one used in the main riff of "Another Part Of Me". With those changes, it would be much more suited to the theme of the rest of the album. As it stands, even though it's a super awesome song, it has a "B-side" feel to it.
Nice dancing. Great song. Love you Michael. If it wasn't for Superfly sister being such a great song, as well as Morphine and Ghost and Blood on the Dance Floor and many other MJ songs this could be a favourite. It's hard to have a favourite MJ song. They are all wonderful.
