Michael Jackson: We Got a Good Thing Goin’
From Stripped Mixes (Universal, 2009)

I wanted to pick something to end the Summer Songs series with and really, few other songs have haunted me as much as this one this summer (for obvious reasons). This is from Michael’s Stripped Mixes, an album that came out just a few weeks after his death (coincidence?). It’s engineered to strip down any number of classic songs, so that you’re really left with a minimalist musical accompaniment – just enough for a glint – and letting Michael’s soaring vocals do the rest. It’s beautiful, it’s sad, and that, my friends, is how summer often ends.

See you all back in 2010.
