We'll never know, but it is fun to compare against other MJ songs and see if there is a remote connection. Okay, this is probably old but some people might have missed it so here we go:
I am talking about the keyboard sequence of course. Yea it is simular, still a composer signature though. Looking at the credits for Black Or White, and you can see Brad Buxer did most of the stuff:
Percussion: Brad Buxer and Bill Bottrell
Keyboards: Brad Buxer, John Barnes and Jason Martz
He is ranked first in the credits for both Black Or White, and the music composer credits for Sonic 3.
Do you think I am right, or wrong? I think I am right. Discuss please :P
