Vocal Tracks: Jacksons Unplugged

By Debbie Schlussel
In the past, I’ve posted video and unenhanced voice sound tracks for David Lee Roth and Britney Spears. And while Roth’s was funny, Spears’ was just downright awful. Girl can’t sing.
And, even though we’re all Michael Jacksoned out and have had enough non-stop coverage to last five Michael Jackson lifetimes, I gotta note this. A friend sent me links to several vocal tracks of Michael Jackson, alone, and when he sang with the Jackson Five. And the guy is the real deal. Even without his voice enhanced, the guy could sing. The first one, of Michael Jackson as a kid, is sooooo cute and reminds you how young he was (sadly, some jerk raps over his voice at about 1:40 into it). Too bad, he weirded out. Take a listen:

And check out the acapella track of Michael Jackson singing “Rock With You.”

Yeah those are some good tracks of his voice. He was a perfectionist at what he did and those are some clean vocals. Some good memories. His music started to make no sense after the Bad album. Nobody really connected with his latest albums. He became a caricature of his earlier self.

Hate to say it,but he would have never passed American Idol. So/so singing. Like most medicore singers he was in the right time and had a good schtick.
