7th Single from Bad was released in the UK on 14 November 1988. Promoting the “Moonwalker” film and having some interesting mixes. Originally produced by Quincy Jones and remixed by Bruce Swedien.
The best studio equipment and best session musicians. The main mix includes a clipped bass and harder drums. Much more electronic than I remember.
On the “Annie’s Mix” there’s plenty of Synclavier (Christopher Currell) and synths. The brass and guitar having been nearly taken out.
The Accapella is fun to listen to the weird , strained vocals. I didn’t know they were that unusual , it’s almost as if someone is doing an exaggerated karaoke take !
