Listening Session & Analysis
Bruce Swedien says it best when talking about the experience of recording “The Way You Make Me Feel”:
“Jackson recorded all the vocal parts, including the backing vocals, dancing around a darkened studio to the track. He’d sing his line, then he’d disappear into the darkness dancing…”
YOU GET TO HEAR THIS when you listen to his vocal tracks in isolation! The stomps, the snaps, the adlibs… The FREEDOM! 🙂
This is one of more more simplistically inspirational in the Michael Jackson catalogue. The upbeat melody, the “sky is opening” vibe that the rhythmic elements and the melody perpetuate. It is magical.
