Michael Jackson – “Song Groove (Abortion Papers)” [LISTEN]

I know this isn’t exactly “Hip-Hop,” but it’s an unreleased song from Michael friggin’ Jackson. Let’s make an exception here. The King of Pop was never one to shy away from controversy, but apparently some things just were a little too controversial even for MJ. With the upcoming election on the way, abortion is a heavy topic on both sides. This song, “Song Groove (Abortion Papers),” is one of the eight unreleased tracks that will be on the 25th anniversary edition re-release of Bad.

“Those abortion papers, signed in your name against the words of God, Those abortion papers
Think about life, I’d like to have my child,” Michael sings on the hook of this song. It’s a pretty creepy song, but in true Mike Jack style, you can still bust a move to it. Incredible. Hit the jump to listen to Michael Jackson’s “Song Groove (Abortion Papers).”

  • Thank you for not jumping on the band wagon of all the so-called experts ripping into MJ for this song. Michael was not espousing a pro-life stand – read his notes. He was too sensitive to the plights of others to judge anyone but he knew there was a lot of pain involved with a woman having to make such a decision and a potential father losing his child. He wrote this song in his mid to late 20s when he was still very involved with the Jehovah Witness church and probably heard a lot of judgment re abortion. Even if he was pro-life, why doesn’t he have the right to his own feelings and opinions like everyone else? Of course, because it’s Michael Jackson, all of a sudden he’s a misogynist, a sexist, a destroyer of women’s rights, blah, blah, blah. More tabloid journalism… And, yes, you’re right – Michael was never one to shy away from controversy and dealt with many difficult topics but he did think carefully about how best to handle this song.

  • WTF

    Song is trash…and I am sure he wouldn’t have wanted it released. OR he would have done so himself!
