The track listing of Michael Jackson's mega-classic album Thriller was going to include a song called "Carousel" instead of "Human Nature" until divine intervention occurred. Quincy Jones received a demo from Toto band member Steve Porcaro, and after not being impressed with the first two songs, the legendary producer found the “flavor” he was seeking. “All of a sudden, at the end there was all of this silence. ‘Why ? Why?’ That was all, just a dummy lyric … I said, ‘What the hell is that?’ That’s what took 'Carousel' out.” Jones contacted lyricist John Bettis to complete "Human Nature," which would become the fifth Top 10 hit single pulled from Thriller.
