MJ/Sonic 3 question Atcha-ooo!

Heh... well, it's pretty well assumed it means Hydrocity Zone, but then who knows, according to Scirocco, MJ called him up once in a while and left messages on his machine with ideas for stuff to use. Unfortunately, that stuff in particular I wouldn't be able to get a hold of unless I got in touch with MJ himself and sorted out the matter, and considering he was booted for the incidents that happened around then, odds are he wouldn't take too kindly to that. On the other hand, no telling what he'd do for a HUEG fan like myself ;P

See, now that's some interesting stuff. It proves that Jackson and others were definitely working on the project together. What would be really interesting would be to see if Scirocco remembers the other guys on the team, and specifically, if he doesn't remember someone who is listed in the credits. I think there is a very significant chance that if Jackson wanted to leave behind some of his compositions, he would have literally given the credit to someone else and had his name inserted into the credit roll. It's not unusual for musicians to do that stuff.
Another thing this reveals is that the group working on the project was not grounded in one place. Roger Hector saying that MJ's work didn't make it in would have some clout if everyone involved had been strictly working in one studio in or nearby STI where Hector could have seen the process. If they were talking about stuff over the phone, then who is to say that Jackson couldn't have had input into any or every other composition that other team members did?
You know what I think is really sad about this? I bet Jackson was having a lot of fun writing this soundtrack. The pressure on him to produce somthing really great and cutting edge was probably lower than with his full-fledged albums, and that would have let him relax and focus on composing whatever good songs he could come up with. We see him taking the time to call people just to talk about ideas, we see him wandering around development offices just to see what is happening...he was probably pretty excited about the whole thing. Then the scandals broke out, and he got canned. Did he deserve it? Maybe. But if he didn't commit those crimes, then what happened to him was almost cruel.
Just like with the scandals, MJ himself is probably the only one who can say what really happened. I wonder, though, if MJ and/or his press people have addressed or will address this case?

So, his songs still remain in some form? I know we'll most likely never get ahold of that tape, but I guess it's just nice to know it exists somewhere (that is, assuming it's not been destoyed after all these years)...

Scirocco is our strongest link definatly, I really hope he still has a copy of "The Water" still. It truely is amazing this treasure trove of secres went unnoticed for over 10 years.
And yes I'm posting again DUM DUM DUUUUM.

I'm drunk BTW....
oh and also...for those that didn't see the similarity in that drum beat on blood on the dance floor, listen at around 1:37 and you'll hear the exact same beat.

no, I just listened to the whole thing again, and I think the whole song kinda' sounds like launch base not just the starting.
