Overview

Love Songs

By focusing on Michael Jackson's '70s output with the Jackson 5 and his solo work as a teen vocal prodigy, Love Songs demonstrates that Michael's '80s ascension to the realm of global superstardom was a foregone conclusion. The earliest signs of this nascent talent came via the Indiana quintet's covers of Smokey Robinson's "Who's Lovin' You" and Ray Charles's "A Fool for You," which found an 11-year old MJ testifying about love like a grown-up. As Michael matured, any rough edges in production and vocal execution became more polished, particularly on songs such as the sweetly lush "Got to Be There" and the mid-tempo cheer of "We've Got a Good Thing Going" with its playful harmonies. By 1975, 17-year-old Michael's voice had matured into the confident tenor that drove solo hits like the light funk of "We're Almost There," tender ballads like "You Are There" and "One Day In Your Life," and the soaring declaration of love that defines "I'll Come Home to You." The cherry on top of this sundae of love is a previously unreleased version of the 1970 chart-topper "I'll Be There," a jewel in the crown of the future "King of Pop."
