    “A music video was filmed for the song however Michael Jackson does not appear in it.” It seems Michael was not part of the cover picture either…he seems “photoshop-ed” into it. Great song by the way, thanks for this one.

    You’re welcome Matracas. I don’t think they had photo shop in 84. The pic is also inside the “Victory” album too but a different pose they are all standing. Not my favorite song from the album it seems very repetitive in my opinion.
