I dont need to recognize the man in the mirror

Nowadays I am always somewhat surprised when I look at that old man in the mirror looking back at me. The features are familiar. I have watched his hair thin out and turn to gray over the years. I remember him looking back at me when I first started to shave at fifteen or so.

The Man in the Mirror

Site Logo

The year was , and the world was in the enthralling season of Michael Jackson and his astounding album Thriller. Michael seemed to be a miracle, all the things he was: the songs, singing, and of course, the dancing, crystallized by the magic moonwalk. Suddenly news started to spread that he was working on the follow-up to Thriller, again to be produced by Quincy. Glen Ballard, as students of songwriting and pop music already know, went onto enormous success as a co-writer and producer with Alanis Morrisette on her first albums, as well as many other projects.

But the biggest of big breaks came when Quincy told her that Michael needed songs for his next album. But this was a formidable challenge: Expected not only to write a hit, but an inspirational hit, something with a luminous musical magnitude Michael could make his own, this was a big one.

It had to have everything: great melody, soulful compelling feel, and a lyric of substance. They succeeded, as the world already knows. Michael was thrilled. He loved it so much that it is the only song lyric to be quoted on the album. It makes sense why Michael loved it. Not only does it have the soul, beauty and funk of great music, it was in perfect tune with his essence.

This is a song written very deliberately for this one singer to sing. Because it transcended the expected content of this new pop music with its beautifully etched socially-conscious lyric. It brought the outside world in; the kids in the street with not enough to eat. The willow scarred.

The meaning of the song was heard and felt. The message of the song, essentially, is to get the message. Wake up. No message could have been any clearer. Never did either of them attempt to suppress their immense excitement about this.

She was right. Her life was transformed forever. Now all these years later, with Michael sadly long gone, the song itself is as powerful as ever, as soulfully funky and inspirational as ever.

That spirit of the singer, the song and songwriters is alive forever. Such is the timeless power of song. I had the title for about a year. I have a book and when I hear things that I like, I write it down. I keep a pad in my car at all times. And when that title came to me, I already knew the concept behind the whole song. Because Quincy [Jones] asked me for anything from a funk-groove street song to a ballad.

So I figured I pretty much had free rein. We wrote it quickly. But this came fast. We wrote it, and then had the demo of the song done on a Friday evening.

I did. Four hours later — four hours! And he has yet to accept an outside song. Three days later I got a call from Quincy and he told me that Michael loved the song and wanted to cut it. I screamed! A few days before the session I got a call from Quincy.

He told me Michael wanted to extend the bridge and needed some new lyrics for it. And he was trying to tell me the message that should be in these new lyrics. This went on for a little while, with Quincy translating for Michael. So Michael tells me what he wants and I take off to find the answer to his dilemma in the bridge. I came up with three different ideas for the part. But then the song turned out to be long anyway, that they never used it.

Things are going so right. My plan was nowhere near this grand. Before he started the session to do the vocals on it, I was packing up and getting ready to leave. I stayed! One time Michael asked me where I got the idea for the song.

But he knew who I was talking about. And that is the truth. This wind is blowing my mind I see the kids in the streets With not enough to eat Who am I to be blind? Pretending not to see their needs.

It was an indication of how commercially viable Michael Jackson had become by the late Eighties that out of the 11 tracks on his album Bad, ten were issued as singles in various territories. Released on seven-inch in January , "Man in the Mirror" was a lucky break for its lyricist, Siedah Garrett. Garrett had never written a song before until she was coerced into it as part of the Quincy Jones-produced five-piece, Deco. In Jones invited her along to a meeting with other songwriters at the producer's home, as Garrett explained to author Adam White. The brief was to come up with material for Jackson's next album and the appointment was for 11am: Garrett arrived an hour late. Jones told the assembled company that he needed something extraordinary for Jackson. Garrett took the commission to her writing partner, Glen Ballard. Garrett caught Ballard's attention with some lyrics about a man looking in the mirror, a line she had carried around for a year or so. By the end of the week they had completed a demo, with Garrett's soulful guide vocal.

This is Cromwell as epic hero. The son of a blacksmith and brewer from the hamlet of Putney, Cromwell has become both chief minister to King Henry VIII and the most powerful man in England aside from the king; some say he is more powerful than the king. He excels at ironwork, the culinary arts, the cloth trade, finance, civil engineering, legislation, and diplomacy. This is not a spoiler. You can Google his fate in eight seconds.

James What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works?
