Will You Be There

  • on: December 07, 2009, 06:59:36 AM
Please people help me out with the changes in the spoken part of Will You Be There. I have difficulties to really hear it.

The only thing I found is that he sings "pains" instead of "pain". Is it that what the main page here refers to? Or is there more and I am only to dumb to find it?

I listened to a lot of versions from WYBT, and the one from the memorial is really different. It seems that the spoken part is live, through a microphone/phone or something. But that's my opinion, did someone notice that too?

Some men see things as they are and say: WHY?
I dream things that never were and say: WHY NOT?

Old thread I know...but I was looking for one mentioning this. I watched WYBT again and someone else said it sounded live, and listening to it again it does sound like it. It's funny because the whole speaking part is made to sound exactly like the album version, but with the word "pains" thrown in instead. When would MJ have recorded one with a different word? And why? He had the the whole song written in his book Dancing the Dream, and the word was "pain."

And if it was live, how could he have made it sound exactly like the album version? Is it just his genius ability, or was it made to *sound* live, like the album version but with a different word? It's also interesting how they would feel the need to display the lyrics of the spoken part up on the screen while he says it; just in case people missed it?

With a different lyric? Displayed on the huge screen? That just happened to be played right then? If it was to be played at a memorial you would use the normal song everyone knows. Let's say he really did pass away. Do you think he'd like the family playing around with his recordings, changing the version that's to be played at the memorial, just because they want to?  Why would they decide to change it anyway? For no reason at all someone just speaks up and says "hey let's use this version and not the album version"? Makes no sense at all to me... :?:
