I was chosen to be featured in Michael Jackson's music video for "Behind the Mask" yesterday. Such an amazing day. Kind of in shock.

Behind the Mask - Michael Jackson's rarest recording?
 :!: BTWJuly 1, 2009 10:40 AM :!:   Subscribe
Michael Jackson penned and recorded lots of songs, many of which remain unreleased. Perhaps the most infamous, and rarest recording, is his version of Behind the Mask. Legend has it that upon hearing Yellow Magic Orchestra's original track, somewhen around 1979, Quincy Jones fell in love with the track, and he and Michael worked together on their own version. Jackson wrote new lyrics for it - adding to those of Ryuichi Sakamoto and Chris Mosdell - and eventually recorded it during his Off The Wall sessions. For unknown reasons the track never made the final cut of, arguably, Jones' and Jackson's greatest work. Not long afterwards Greg Phillinganes, Jackson's keyboard player, released his own version of the song, which was later taken up and re-recorded by Eric Clapton for his 1986, Phil Collins produced album, August. The track has since been recorded/remixed by Human League, Senor Coconut, Orbital and others. Does an original Jones/Jackson recording of the song even exist? Perhaps, as the world continues to mourn the star's sad death, someone will finally allow us a listen.

Michael Jackson Behind the Mask Lyrics:
All along, had to talk about it
Like a two-edged sword, he touched you and it stabs me
All along, knew you were a phony girl
Sit behind the mask where you control your world

Yesterday he had you in his arms
When I'm holding you, I feel his bitter charms
I can't judge what you do to me
Camouflage the truth, indulge your fantasy

Who do you love?
Is it me now, is it him babe? I don't know
Who do you love?
Is it me babe, is it him now? I don't know

There is nothing in your eyes that's the way you cry
All is grand, all is bright, you're just studying my mind
There is nothing in your eyes that's the way you cry
All is grand, all is bright, you're just studying my mind

Was I invited to your masquerade?
Well the party's over so now take off your face
You say you love, but it's hard to see
When you're in his arms, throwing rocks at me

Who do you love?
Is it me now, is it him babe? I don't know
Who do you love?
Is it me babe, is it him now? I don't know

There is nothing in your eyes that's the way you cry
All is grand, all is bright, you're just studying my mind
There is nothing in your eyes that's the way you cry
All is grand, all is bright, you're just studying my mind

I walk around suffering in my doom
When I come to you, you're sitting in your room
The truth is news, I have longed to trace
So take off the mask so I can see your face

Who do you love?
Is it me baby, is it him now? I don't know
Who do you love?
Is it me babe, is it him baby? I don't know
Who do you love?
Is it me babe, is it him now? I don't know
Who do you love?
Is it me now, is it him baby? I don't know

Who do you love?
Is it me baby, is it him now? I don't know
Who do you love?
Is it me baby, is it him now? I don't know
Who do you love?
Is it me baby, is it him? I want to know
Who do you love?
Lyrics: Behind the Mask, Michael Jackson [end]

"Behind the Mask" is an album track from American recording artist Michael Jackson's posthumous album Michael, which was released on December 14, 2010.

[edit] Background and releaseQuincy Jones heard Yellow Magic Orchestra’s version during the Thriller sessions, and brought it to Michael Jackson, Michael had recorded the song, adding an extra melody line and a few extra lyrics. Legal battles prevented the song to be released on Jackson's sixth studio album, Thriller, and remained unreleased for over 20 years.[6]

However, as a part of Sony Music's 10-album recording deal with the Estate of Michael Jackson, the song was announced to be released on the posthumous album of Jackson's, titled Michael. Singer Shanice provides background vocals on the song.[12] In February 2011, the song was released as a single in France. [13]

[edit] Critical receptionThe song received positive reviews from music critics. Jody Rosen from Rolling Stone called the song "a fiercely funky cousin to "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' ."[14] Dan Martin from NME thought the song was "an absolute revelation, a swirl of psychedelic, orchestra-twinged R&B", and said "Jackson howls a solid-gold melody at his fearsome best, and blippy production and robotic backing vocals dancing behind it." [15] Jason Lipshutz with Gail Mitchell and Gary Graff from Billboard thought the song was "a must-listen songs on Michael", and it "holds the highest number of Jackson's signature 'hee-hee!' exclaims".[16] Joe Pareles from New York Times said, the song was originally a 1979 hit by Ryuichi Sakamoto’s group Yellow Magic Orchestra with Jackson's lyrics about a coldhearted woman, but the final version which was completed by Mr. McClain was mixed with applause and squeals from concert crowds from Live in Bucharest: The Dangerous Tour.[11] Leah Greenblatt from Entertainment Weekly thought the song seemed "oddly dated by sax flourishes — though perhaps that makes it a good companion to the lilting closer Much Too Soon, an actual relic of the early ’80s".[17] The author of the forthcoming book, Man in the Music: The Creative Life and Work of Michael Jackson, Joe Vogel thought Mr John McClain' update to the song was skillful, making it sound brand new and retro at the same time. And he thought the song "definitely one of the highlights of the album".[18]

[edit] Single release"Behind the Mask" is the third single released from Michael Jackson's first posthumous album Michael. The single was released to French radio on February 21, 2011, and digital download was also available.[19]

Touchy.
Gee I wonder where the mod is with that "warning" like the one I got for using that same phrase?    >sarcasm<

I'm not.
You do not think Michael Jackson had/has a multiple faceted personality?
Look at his life, songs. short films. Hello.
