Here Are All The “New” Michael Jackson Songs, Including Rip off of “A Horse with No Name”


All the songs from Michael Jackson’s posthumous “Xscape” album have been available for eons on YouTube and other places. Not only that, one of them is a total rip off of America’s 1972 classic “A Horse with No Name.” I’d like to know what it cost to license those rights. What a payday for Dewey Bunnell. He must be thanking his lucky stars. I hope his lawyer and his music publisher got him seven figures.

“Slave to the Rhythm” — there was a controversy about this track because one of Michael’s kids gave it to Justin Bieber, who then released his own bootlegged version with his vocals added. I wrote about that at least 18 months ago. Now it’s back.

You can make your own “Xscape” album at home, for free. Start with these tracks:

“She Was Loving Me”


“A Place with No Name” — from America’s “A Horse with No Name”

“Slave to the Rhythm”

“Do You Know Where Your Children Are”

“Blue Gangsta”
