More evidence of the waning originality of artists these days.

Anyone remember the movie "Demolition Man", where the music on the radio was all old tv commercial jingles? That's where we're headed thanks to lip-synch, auto-tune, and "sampling".

The song makes me think of the Jackson's saturday morning cartoon. The music is great. MJ's voice kinda sticks out a little too much IMO. I think they should release two versions. one version with some toned down WOESSSSZZ....Woe on the Whoooahasss. I think the young people will love it eventually. Just work out dem whoooahoawasssszzzz!

Love ya MJ!
Love original J5 music FOREVER!

I was a kid just like Michael when this song came out and there was something about it that always made me sad. I don't know why.

I'm not sure, but does "I wanna be where you are" fall under the old motown machine of writers? MJ and his siblings were not allowed to write any of their recorded songs while at the label. If memory serves me right, I don't think J5 were allowed to play any instruments at Motown either. An in house band was used.....the Funk Brothaz.....I think.
