OMG, Strange Demo of We Are The World

  • on: January 08, 2011, 12:17:04 AM
I looked, and I don't think this has been discussed before.

Okay, so at work I was listening to my iPod with all my Michael songs on shuffle, and the We Are The World demo from the Ultimate Collection from '04 came on. I usually just skip past the demos, but after the Michael album of demos, I felt like listening to it. It is very good sounding for a demo.

Anyway, (Michael???) started to sing, and his voice sounds very similar to the strange Cansico tracks, at least Keep Your Head Up anyway. Not really Breaking News or Monster, unless the voice is edited. He does the same shaky vibrato thing. But then I heard another voice. There is another Michael voice there that doesn't do that shaky vibrato. It's much more pure. To me it sounds like a duet with someone (impersonator?). It sounds like two different voices to me, not just doubled on the track like MJ does to sound like it's a group singing like he has done. Also, his voice sounds deeper, more current than in the 80s.

Also, check out the lyrics. I froze when I was listening to them. They are nothing like the one released in 1985. I know they probably had a few versions him and Lionel Richie wrote, but these lyrics are way off. They don't even sound like a song for charity.

There is a time when we should hear the certain calls
'Cause the world it seems it's right in this line
'Cause there's a chance for taking in needing our own lives
It seems we need nothing at all

I used to feel that I should give away my heart
And it shows that fear of needing it there
Then I read the headlines and it said they're dying there
And it shows that we must heed instead

We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a chance we're taking
We're taking our own lives

It's true we'll make a brighter day
Just you and me

Give up your heart and you will see that someone cares
'Cause you know that they can feed them all
Then I read the paper and it said that you've been denied (though I hear indeed we die)
And it shows the second we will call

We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a chance we're taking
We're taking our own lives

It's true we'll make a brighter day
Just you and me

Now there's a time when we must love at all
And it seems that life, it don't make love at all
But if you'd been there, and I'll love you more and more
It seems in life, I didn't do that


We are the world, the world
We are the children, are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving, let's start giving
There's a chance we're taking
We're taking our own lives

It's true we'll make a brighter day
Just you and me

We are the world, are the world
We are the children, are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving, let's start giving
But there's a chance we're taking, taking
We're taking our own lives

It's true we'll make a brighter day
Just you and me

We are the world, Shine On
We are the children, Shining
We are the ones who make a brighter day, Shine On
So let's start giving, 'cause that's what we're being
There's a chance we're taking
We're taking our own lives

It's true we'll make a brighter day
Just you and me
Come on, yeah

We are the world, Shine On
We are the children, Shining
We are the ones who make a brighter day, Shine On
So let's start giving, 'cause that's what we're being
There's a chance we're taking
We're taking our own lives

It's true we'll make a brighter day
Just you and me
Oh yeah, we got it

We are the world, Shine On
We are the children, Shining
We are the ones who make a brighter day, Shine On
So let's start giving, cause that's what we're being
There's a chance we're taking
We're taking our own lives

It's true we'll make a brighter day
Just you and me


How did it go from "Taking Our Own Lives" to "Saving Our Own Lives" in the Official one from 1985? "Taking Our Own Lives" doesn't sound like a charity song to me. It also sounds like a duet to me. One has the strange vibrato, the other doesn't. It sounds like two people clapping to the beat too, not just an echo.

This is like the song Best of Joy to to me. He keeps saying "I am Forever, We Are Forever, I am Forever, We Are Forever..." and then "I'm the one that..." "I'm the one that..." again it sounds like two different people are singing.

I've listened to the demo version many times and have always thought that it was only Michael.  I just figured they changed the lyrics some after listening to the demo, possibly so it would sound more like a charity song.  Maybe Michael or Lionel didn't like the way the original lyrics sounded.

You should read the Gear Slutz.com The producer's and musicians that actually worked with him talk how they produce records and edit different versions of his voice in....for example...he could sing parts of a song one way ..and then other parts another way....then when they put it all together they blend it.

If you have not been there google gear slutz michael jackson ...that should get you to the huge thread where they have been discussing him for months.
