The man said it himself in an interview, so it must be true. Michael Jackson wrote over hundred songs for ‘Bad’ and only nine of them appeared on the album (‘Just Good Friends’ and ‘Man in the Mirror’ were written by others). He threw away over ninety songs, just to make sure that the album would be the best album he could ever make.

I know that was thirty years ago and times have changed. It just makes me wonder. As it is all about content’ now, are the current artists aware that great music takes effort, time and a lot of adjustments? Because I’m getting the impression that, with 100.000 tracks released on Spotify every day, it’s more about quantity than quality at the moment.
