Just think...
IF the undead Michael Jackson hadn't conveniently "died" you wouldn't be out buying this piecemeal inferior junk.

You can tell that this song was incomplete because Michael is a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to his music. thats what made all of his hits huge. well that and his talent. But, when you hear this leaked version you automatically know that this is something Michael wasn't ready to put out. He was still working on it. Don't get me wrong. I LOVE THIS SONG. But you can just tell that it's not a complete MJ hit. When I hear it I can't even imagine how it would have sounded if Michael was still alive and had the chance to finish it. All I know is that it would have been MAGICAL, and a number one hit.
