Michael Jackson – Bad

An awesome tribute to the legendary Michael Jackson – the result of an amazing multicultural and multiracial fusion of talents from the African American King of Pop, the Caucasian piano music composer (Bence Peter) and the Asian piano virtuoso (Yohan Kim)

When I watched the above music video, I got a sense of feeling that his song and dance might be a form of social justice statement, going by the fact that the majority of his dancers are Black, Asian and Latinos. It could be a message of solidarity among people of colour in protest against White supremacy and White police brutality against unarmed people of colour especially in America.

Lyrics

Your butt is mine
Gonna tell you right
Just show your face
In broad daylight
I’m telling you
On how I feel
Gonna hurt your mind
Don’t shoot to kill
Come on

Come on
Lay it on me
All right

I’m giving you
On count of three
To show your stuff
Or let it be
I’m telling you
Just watch your mouth
I know your game
What you’re about

Well they say the sky’s the limit
And to me that’s really true
But my friend you have seen nothin’
Just wait ’til I get through

Because I’m bad, I’m bad come on
You know I’m bad, I’m bad come on, you know
You know I’m bad, I’m bad come on, you know
And the whole world has to
Answer right now
Just to tell you once again
Who’s bad

The word is out
You’re doin’ wrong
Gonna lock you up
Before too long
Your lyin’ eyes
Gonna tell you right
So listen up
Don’t make a fight
Your talk is cheap
You’re not a man
You’re throwin’ stones
To hide your hands

But they say the sky’s the limit
And to me that’s really true
And my friends you have seen nothin’
Just wait ’til I get through

Because I’m bad, I’m bad come on
You know I’m bad, I’m bad come on, you know
You know I’m bad, I’m bad come on, you know
And the whole world has to
Answer right now
Just to tell you once again
Who’s bad

We can change the world tomorrow
This could be a better place
If you don’t like what I’m sayin’
Then won’t you slap my face

Because I’m bad, I’m bad come on
You know I’m bad, I’m bad come on, you know
You know I’m bad, I’m bad come on, you know
And the whole world has to
Answer right now
Just to tell you once again
Who’s bad

Because I’m bad, I’m bad come on
You know I’m bad, I’m bad come on, you know
You know I’m bad, I’m bad come on, you know
And the whole world has to
Answer right now
Just to tell you once again
Who’s bad

Who’s bad?

Look around, wonder why
We can live a life that’s never satisfied
Lonely hearts, troubled minds

Looking for a way that we can never find

Many roads are ahead of us
With choices to be made
But life’s just one of the games we play
There is no special way

Make the best of what’s given you
Everything will come in time
Why deny yourself?
Don’t just let life pass you by
Like winter in July

Future dreams, can never last
When you find yourself still living in the past
Keep moving on to higher grounds
Looking for the way you thought could not be found

We may not know the reason why
We’re born into this world
Where a man only lives to die
His story left untold

Make the best of what’s given you
Everything will come in time
Why deny yourself?
Don’t just let life pass you by
Like winter in July

And we may not know the reason why
We’re born into this world
Where a man only lives to die
And his story left untold

So make the best, make the best of what’s given you
Everything will come in time
Why deny yourself?
Don’t just let life pass you by
Like winter in July
