New Music: Michael Jackson “This Is It”

“This Is It,” debuted online at midnight on Monday (October 12), with some instantly speculating that the heartstring-tugging song could become one of the late pop star’s best-selling singles of all time. The spare, mid-tempo love ballad, which was reportedly recorded during the sessions for his 1991 Dangerous album, finds Jackson in classic voice, singing in his clear falsetto along to finger snapping, a subtle jazzy piano and swelling strings, as his brothers, the Jacksons, provide ethereal backing vocals.

For almost four minutes, Jackson weaves one of his pleading tales of unrequited love, opening with the lyrics “This is it, here I stand/ I’m the light of the world, I feel grand/ Got this love I can feel/ And I know, yes, for sure, it is real.” Jackson goes on to tell his unnamed lover that he feels as if he’s seen their face “a thousand times,” and, eerily, that “I know that you have got addicted with your eyes/ But you say you gonna live it for yourself.”
