As this was also dropped, Freddie went on recording his own version and released it later for his "Mr. Bad Guy" album.

Do not confuse it with the unreleased 2006 charity anthem.
Originally intended for the album INVINCIBLE (2001) AOL Music and Tonos Entertainment launched a songwriting-contest whose winner, Ric Kipp, provides the lyrics for the song. But it has never been recorded.
This contest is actually confusing because Michael said in an interview with American magazine TV Guide in November 1999 that the song is "a millennium song about the world and the environment". Now this indicates that the contest is needless because the lyrics existed already.
An instrumental that is circulating on the web is a FAKE!

No Problem Friends

WOW!!! there's loads!!!! thanks for all the information Invincible Man Smiling

Oh my Goodness Shocked

I think that I will need some time to look through

all of this.

Thank you INVINCIBLE MAN Smiling

Yes well I guess you guys are right haha im just saying invincible could have used a couple more singles... and so could "michael"...

and yes this list was very exhausting to post Smiling

I read somewhere that something like 25 million (which is astronomical) was spent by Sony on promoting Invincible, so yeah I'd say it was well promoted.
As far as the album itself, eh, it didn't have enough Jackson originals on it if you ask me.
And angel_watcher you raise a really good point about 9/11. Mariah Carey released her "Glitter" album and movie around the same time and both did horribly (even though it's actually a decent album and movie) because of the time that it was released. Long story short, timing is crucial.
Invincible didn't do too badly though, it just didn't do as well as previous Jackson records which is why some though it was a commercial failure even though it really wasn't. "Michael" also did well despite it's lack of airplay. I think it's success got overshadowed by all the "fake song" controversy. I think they should've done another video too.
I can't wait til they release more unreleased music though!!

To put things in historical perspective, you must also remember that "Invincible" was released on 10/1/2001--less than a month after 9/11. I do recall that that tragic event brought everything--including the economy--to what can be called a virtual standstill. If you want to talk about sales, record sales--including the sales of Michael's record--fell into a big slump.
I can remember our President at the time urging everyone to go out and shop to save the economy.
@frednichols - You know the saying about one man's meat being another's poison. Your opinion is certainly your own and you are entitled to hold it, but I am not sure how you "critique" of "Invincible" relates to the topic of this thread.
@InvincibleMan - Thanks for posting such an exhaustive list of all the songs in Michael's catalog. It must have been exhausting Eye-wink for you to itemize, annotate, and post all of this. I think I was commenting on another thread of yours this morning about unreleased songs of Michael's. It will certainly be interesting to hear what comes of all of these possibilities. I really enjoyed the demos of Michael's that have been released in the past--such as with Thriller 25th Anniversary and the Ultimate Collection. There are very good songs (some I even love very much) among those even without the finishing touches or that were dropped for the final album cuts.

@ FINSTER, FINSTER....Invincible was promoted. The money Sony put into that album was crazy for any artist including MJ. This was a time when people were a bit creeped out by Michael and the video for You Rock My World didn’t help. After that video came out all I heard & read people talking about was he had run out of ideas so he remade Smooth Criminal (poorly) & his upper lip didn’t even move. If people didn’t know Invincible was out they weren’t on this planet. He even sat in Virgin records, shut down Times Square & showed up on TRL, BET, & other shows in the same night. The entire world knew about the album. Then he started with the Race BS & all that. He came off like a spoiled diva. Truth is the album simply wasn’t great. It had a few good songs, no real killer track, & "Dark Child" amongst others stripped MJ of his signature style lyrics like HEE HEE & so on in an attempt to connect with "Other" fans outside of Core fans. 16 songs=overkill, too many ballads, no "club banger", & a ton of cheese. Lost Children, You Are My Life, Heart Breaker, Invincible, unbreakable, all weak B-side garbage. Someone is going to say what I’ve said about these songs is an opinion &” I love them all”. You’re right it’s an opinion but an overwhelming one saying that this album was weak & forgettable. This wasn’t a Michael Jackson album it was a Michael this is what you need to do to get back on top album, according to others. MJ himself wasn’t happy with it according many inside people. Regardless of all that it was pushed hard! Honestly you think an extra poster or commercial is going to boost sales? Hey how about QVC? Come on man!

KMJA!

I would say the promotion on "Michael" was mediocre. I admittedly don't know how it works with the or who's fault it is but they never played any of the songs from the album on the radio...I only saw one commercial for it and when I went into the Best Buy they didn't have any signs or posters up for it. I've seen way more promotion for Justin Beiber's album than "Michael" which is so sad.
In reality I don't think MJ needs much promotion because he's so universal but I mean dang I see more commercials for the MJ videogame than I did for the album smh kids are gonna grow up thinking MJ is just "that man from the cool video game...."
Is it too much to ask that MJ the man get more promotion than his video game character lol I'm just sayin....

Yes i especially with MICHAEL, i wish it'd been promoted better. Dont get me wrong, i love the music, but a place inside of me feels guilty because, like MClamb said, MJ didnt put his finishing touches on it...

I think that invincible wasnt well promoted and michael

Wow that's a lot of unreleased songs.
I remember hearing that Michael used to write something like 100 songs for each album so he's probably got way more unreleased songs than we can even imagine. The only problem with all of these unreleased songs is that they'll probably have to "piece" them together like they did with "Breaking News" and some other songs from "Michael". Don't get me wrong I liked the album but I must admit it was strange to listen to a song that I knew Michael didn't put his finishing touches on....
"Off The Wall" is supposed to be the next album project they work on which I pray is true b/c that's my fave solo MJ album ♥
Not to mention that it'll be completely-controversy free and we can just enjoy the album!!

No way of knowing how much of this is real or BS. I could add to this list. This will give anyone a headache trying to guess what will be on the "next" album which could be years away. From what Ive heard the Next project is Off The Wall. True or not is anyone guess. This is going to be dragged out over years.....

One thing I see MJ fans talk about a lot is the Promotion of MJs albums. Will It Be Promoted Correctly? You tell us. Ive been an MJ fan for over 30 years & the only album I've never seen promoted was Blood on the Dance Floor & that's because MJ didnt want anything to do with it. It was a Contract obligation that was just thrown together. What to you fans is proper promotion? & what other MJ albums do you feel werent Promoted Correctly? I find it a tad ignorant when people say his albums werent Promoted Correctly.

KMJA!

thanks so much for posting
