In Response To: DIALOGUE ()
Mark -- and MJ!
I, too, have always been quite fond of Dialogue! The song was so beautiful, so lyrical, so unsurpassable that I'm almost afraid to even suggest this idea, but here goes:
In recent years, MJ has re-recorded some of his earlier songs, giving them a whole new interpretation by using a different tempo or different instrumentation. BOTH versions of the song are equally perfect: neither is better than the other, just different.
Because I love Dialogue SOOO MUCH, I have this dream in my heart that someday MJ will re-record the song, this time in a true "dialogue" format. Can you just imagine MJ paired with one of Nashville's better female voices (Suzy Bogguss, perhaps)??? In my mind, the duet goes something like this:
(SHE) Stranded in a waiting room, he turns to her,
(SHE) Have you been to France, I hear it's wonderful this time of year
(HE) He has got the world to give
(BOTH)Cancel all your reservations, it's a now or never stand
(HE) And he has got the world to give
(HE) He turns to her
Just a thought....
