    They were all under pressure from the record company to finish it by a certain date. They rushed it, and when MJ heard what it sounded like, he cried than, than wanted to scrap the entire project. The higher-ups relented, gave more time, and thankfully they churned out the final album that we know.

    Jones told Jackson the intro was way too long (the bass line). Jackson replied “But that’s what makes me want to dance!” Jones said, “If it makes Micheal want to dance, you shut your mouth and let him have it his way.”
    I am by no means a Jackson fan, but Billie Jean is an incredible song. I have heard the demo Jackson made himself (without Jones) and it is more or less just like the finished product. For me, what makes the song so great is the whole song is one long crescendo. It gains complexity and intensity as it progresses, but the real genius of the song is, it does not draw attention to the crescendo. The energy of the song creeps up on you, and what was just a simple snaky bass line and beat morphs into complex rhythms, rock guitar parts, Jackson layering his voice and calling back to himself, etc. I think it is the greatest thing Jackson ever wrote or preformed.
    I was a teenager when MTV first came on the air, I watched the first video (Video Killed the Radio Star) and I remember when Billie Jean premiered. It was a huge game changer and yes it really did help MTV get popular.

    I’m afraid I have to call bullshit on this. I mean, it’s certainly possible to do this, it just wouldn’t look like this. Have you been to Northern Quebec? There are like five people there. There aren’t as many electrical outlets in Nunavut as this illustration claims there are infected nodes. It’s just not realistic given the number of internet nodes in the Canadian North (where I have lived). And it seems that nobody north of sixty has heard of linux at all.
