Stuff that Matters to Me

291 notes

When the title track “Dangerous” was being recorded, Michael was injured in the studio and had to be rushed to the hospital! A temporary recording booth that we had built for him collapsed and knocked him on the head just as he started singing.He ended up being just fine, and for a long time, we used to play an early mix of the song which started with a sample of him screaming in pain as the walls came tumbling down!He was amazing in the studio. He has the equivalent of a photographic memory for music. He could sing something 40 different ways, and then two weeks later, remember that takes # 6 and 27 were the best ones.We recorded so much music for Dangerous, that it was nearly impossible for MJ to pick out what was going to end up on the album. At one point, it was going to be a double album, as he had well over two hours of music chosen for the release.When Sony decided they wanted it all to fit on a single CD, Michael kept coming back with lists of his his “final” selections, but they almost always added up to over 74 minutes—the maximum running time for the disc. I remember them going back and forth on this for weeks.
