    Awwww the good ole days! Remember I was in 9th grade when this came out! She was flying high off the success off her “Dangerously In Love” album.

    That song “Fighting Temptation” with Missy Elliott, Free, and Mc Lyte was a BOP too!

      I know right, I had a cousin who had surgery at 8yrs old. Right after the surgery they said she was okay then hours later she was going into a coma and wasn’t going to make it. Well, while she was in a coma for almost a month; we had let the radio play like gospel and soft music. Well, she stated that when she heard MJ whom had just came out with this Album “Thriller” in which she had never heard yet . She stated that, something about hearing the smooth ambiance of nostalgia with Micheal’s soft voice told her that she was going to make it out alive just to witness whatever song it was. She said, she keep pulling through with what she thought she was hearing and wondering what was it that she was hearing. She said, it echoed through her temporal lobe until it felt spiritual. Days later from it she stated she opened her eyes and looked right at that radio. My cousin is now ALIVE and well today, very successful and married with two beautiful kids cause of this ONE SONG, “HUMAN NATURE.”
