Would had MJ's "We Are Here To Change The World" been a hit if it had been released as a single?

I think it would been very sucessfull. Still it's a bit short...with a 12'' mix it would have been great.

I love the synth work in it!

Probably, although it's not one of his best tracks.

Yes, if it's Michael in the 80's then it's a hit.


Mike could have released a 4 minute song of silence in '86 and it wouldv'e been a hit.

Probably - but it would have not aged well at all.

That version on the Ultimate Collection is wayyyyy too short. Matter of fact, disc 2 of the Ultimate Collection is criminally too short. They could've fit at least 5 more unreleased songs on there lol

I think it's one of his best songs! It definitely would have done well had he released it.

I am not into this song really.

If Captian EO was released ala thriller or Smooth Criminal, it would have been a hit.
