THE SHORT FILM
Director: Andy Morahan
Primary Production Location: Munich, Germany
Michael Jackson’s short film for “Give In to Me” was the sixth of nine short films produced for recordings from Dangerous, Michael’s fourth album as an adult solo performer. While the song was not released as a single in North America, “Give In to Me” reached the Top 10 in eight countries including the United Kingdom, France, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand (where it reached No. 1).
The “Give In to Me” short film was recorded during rehearsals for the Dangerous World Tour in Munich, Germany. Michael performs “Give In to Me” before a live audience with a band that includes Slash and Gilby Clarke of Guns N’ Roses and bassist Muzz Skillings, formerly of Living Colour.
Slash played guitar on the album version of “Give In to Me” and contributed the opening solo to “Black or White,” and would appear sporadically on dates on the Dangerous World Tour, an experience he called “amazing to watch” in an interview with CNN in 2012.
