I love that song Wildflower by New Birth, it was the song my first girlfriend in high school danced together for the first time and it was our theme song. I did not know it was not an original song and much less did I know that is was a rock song because it was such a soulfull song, it was the first song I put on my I Pod

The lie part was a joke, apologies if you misunderstood :P

I'm sorry but I don't think anyone's vocals could top Michael's when it comes to his own songs. A better guitar riff, sure. Crappier vocals? Definitely.

Lets face it, when it comes down to MJ's songs vocals are the largest part.

This one is right on!

Even Mr. NIN himself said so...

I love the Johnny Cash version.

Just about anyone could do a better job on any song than Bob Dylan...

But, Jimmy Herdrix was a genius who elevated it to a new level!

Aretha Franklin's remake of Respect was so spectacular that even its composer and originator Otis Redding said many times in public while performing his own song" that girl done took my song"

It is not a lie, it is an opinion.

Alien Ant Farm had a better guitar rift, and added more excitement to a rather flat song by Michael Jackson.
The song was suited to rock, not pop.

Trent Reznor said he was skeptical at first when he heard Johnny Cash asked to do a cover of the song, but upon hearing it he cried (and not because he thought his song got raped)
