In reply to:

Has MJ ever prefessed his DB fandom?


Im under the distinct impression the only person Michael Jackson likes? Is himself a man possessed with himself

And I for one am very pleased Bowie never recorded anything with him.

Maybe Bowie was trying to elbow a Chic reunion out of Nile Rodgers on BTWN.

In reply to:

What we do know is that the song was originally at a much faster tempo...


I never knew this, but always thought it sounded better at a faster speed. When the single came out, I would often listen to the 12" BTWN at 45rpm - the intro just sounded so much better....funky as hell.

Re: The Original Faster (and Possibly Better?) BTW new [re: icarusboy]  

With some handy software you can get the MP3 file of BTWN and make it faster, without any instruments or vocals going high pitch. This should make a really interesting and probably much better version of the song. Is anyone up for trying this? If not I will give it a go and upload it?

It will certainly take some getting used to after hearing the normal version, but I think somebody might be able to do a better job.

I can only think of the backstage photo from the 1983 Serious moonlight performance in LA.


Bowie first met MJ in LA during the Diamonds Dogs tour stop. As I recall, Michael requested that he wanted to meet David at the time as he was fascinated by the elaborate show.

Re: Possibly Better? new [re: jump93]  

Although I can't stand Bono, I always liked his quote "I think David Bowie wants to be Michael jackson and Picasso"

And I don't know if Michael Jackson would work well on BTWN, although that song's probably the closest to the sound Michael was doing at the time with his Dangerous album. I think they could've made some amazing pop music, had they worked together in the early 80s.
