The first single from Michael Jackson’s Bad album- Siedah Garrett was a last minute addition after Babs Streisand and Whitney Houston decided against participating. I don’t remember hearing this song very often- but I wasn’t listening to Top 40 radio in that era. This isn’t anything special- it had to be viewed as a disappointment- after the hits on the previous album- a little one you may have heard called Thriller.
It was played here in Australia at the time. I loved it. But then I love/loved Michael. What a fantastic performer!
