Like him or loathe him...

..nobody can deny that Michael Jackson was a musical genius. Here is my favourite song from the "Thriller album", Human Nature

"A template for new jack swing and hip-hop soul ballads, "Human Nature" is comparatively slower and more intimate than "Thriller's" other songs. "If this town is just an apple, let me take a bite," quivers Jackson's voice over a cascading synthesizer and percolating bass line. Though written by John Bettis and Steve Porcaro of Toto, the lyrics resonate with Jackson's yearning to break free from his tower of celebrity and mingle with young people in a "city that winks its sleepless eye."
Serena Kim, South Coast Today 1983
