Original demo of Beat It created by Jackson, using only his voice for all the parts.
As Jackson couldn’t fluently play any instruments, he would sing and beatbox out how he wanted his songs to sound by himself on tape, layering the vocals, harmonies and rhythm before having instrumentalists come in to complete the songs.
One of his engineers Robmix on how Jackson worked: “One morning MJ came in with a new song he had written overnight. We called in a guitar player, and Michael sang every note of every chord to him. “here’s the first chord first note, second note, third note. Here’s the second chord first note, second note, third note”, etc., etc. We then witnessed him giving the most heartfelt and profound vocal performance, live in the control room through an SM57. He would sing us an entire string arrangement, every part. Steve Porcaro once told me he witnessed MJ doing that with the string section in the room. Had it all in his head, harmony and everything. Not just little eight bar loop ideas. he would actually sing the entire arrangement into a micro-cassette recorder complete with stops and fills.”
Reasons why I laugh when people say he wasn’t a real musician.
This is important
I can’t stop watching this. Its incredible how everybody else in the car ducks down after President Kennedy is shot, except Jackie. She puts her arm around him and doesn’t even think to lower herself.
I literally cannot stop watching. The amount of love Jackie had for him was beautiful.
Aww that’s so-
Oh hey shes getting olde-

- Attempted scaring my husband coming home from work, he knew I was there
- I told him to go back and do it again, but to act scared this time!
- Instead of scaring him, apparently I airbended the crap out of him and it was so powerful that it knocked him to the ground
- This is why I love him
I literally cannot take how cute this is
it’s not very often you see people on tumblr call a straight couple cute, which is why this makes me happy
No hetero, of course

I would love a boyfriend who took a lot of pictures, even though I don’t like pictures of me. Me doing something completely random and him saying “wait, wait wait. Stay right there!”And he takes his camera and while taking the picture he mumbles “beautiful”
