'Dangerous': Edited

Hey all! Long time no see. wave ......@ least to those who actually remember me. lol

If you could edit Michael Jacksons' Dangerous album down to only 10/11 songs, which songs would you remove?


Tracklist:
1. Jam
2. Why You Wanna Trip on Me
3. In the Closet
4. She Drives Me Wild
5. Remember the Time
6. Can't Let Her Get Away
7. Heal the World
8. Black or White
9. Who Is It
10. Give In to Me
11. Will You Be There
12. Keep the Faith
13. Gone Too Soon
14. Dangerous


& folks, I ask that we PLEASE keep this ALL ABOUT THE MUSIC!! NOTHING MORE THAN THE MUSIC!!!! PLEASE?!

I, personally, would remove She Drives Me Wild, Heal The World, & Keep The Faith. If we go one more, I'd remove Gone too Soon, & add Monkey Business back into the tracklist somewhere.

peace & heart

I like the way the album is, though I think someone put your hand out would have fit in nicely too

Track 8-14, from "Black or White" through the end, is its own album. But I don't like the ones I noted. I know, I know, people like them. But if I'm chopping, those are the ones. I may have a little elbow room on "Can't Let Her Get Away."

I have always felt this album was too long. In the days of the cassette, I rarely listened to it that much

I find it just to cheesy. The album would be more enjoyable for me without it.

It's very cheesy but at least memorable. I must have skipped most of the other down tempo songs on the album most times as I don't even remember the titles.

LOL Because it's a shitty cousin-by-marriage of "Man In The Mirror." MJ kept trying to make HTW happen, but meh.

Dangerous is one of my favorite MJ albums if not my favorite. I've always loved it the way it is even with the cheesy and skippable HTW, but I would have certainly swapped it out with something else like maybe Satisfy You or Joy. However, imho, there isn't very much you can cut out to make room for some of the other trax that didn't make it without sacrificing some good cuts. Maybe somebody wishes Michael had included Serious Effect instead of maybe She Drives Me Wild, but She Drives Me Wild is a jam IMHO. Then if he had actually gone with that choice and years later SDMW had popped up on the Internet as a leak then some people might have been like what was he thinking. As much as I love Dangerous, I think it was a wasted opportunity to release a great double album. Some might argue that it would have diluted the potency of the album it ended up being, but I don't know.

6 and 13, if I have to, but why? Use up all available space. People can skip the songs they don't like.

You re right about She Drives Me Wild being almost a fan favourite if it never released amd popped up on the internet as a leak.
Of course people dissing it now would tell about how the track is better than what has replaced it.

People dissing Heartbreaker, Invincible or Threatened, and liking pieces of crap such as Blue Gangsta, Chicago makes no sense at all. If Blue Gangsta had replaced Heartbreaker, and the latter popped up on the internet ten years after, fans would have said it was great.

By the way MJs adults albums are perfect the way as they are presented, except of course Invincible. I would have Loved a 10 tracks BOTDF though.

Dangerous is already a kind of double album.
By its lenght, it stands on two vinyls.
And you can see 2 different albums : the 7 tracks produced with Riley, and the 7 organic tracks produced by Bill Bottrel and MJ.

I wouldn't remove songs, but would shorten some songs.

intros of B&W, HTW and WYBT...they are all way too long.

last few minutes of Who is it, love the song but it goes on and on

Who Is It had already been cut short(!).
MJs engineers often told him his songs lasted too long towards the end, but MJ liked it when it was long, and was always upset to cut his songs in order to stand in one CD.

Yeah, it is. And the David Fincher-directed video complements the song real nicely.

Seeing a video like "Who Is It" or even "Black or White," one realizes just how much MJ should've picked up on the idea of a video album back then, and blazed a trail. Doesn't have to be some quasi-storyline like Prince did with 3 Chains or D&P. But just make beautiful videos for each song, and put it out. "Who Is It" and "Give In To Me" are great videos. I actually like them more than "Black or White" (although props to the morphing thing back then - it was legendary at the time). "Why You Wanna Trip On Me" and "Keep The Faith" should've had videos.

I think Moonwalker is the closest thing to a visual album we got from him
