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.
