Watch: Lost Michael Jackson Video

November 19, 2010 4:43 PM ET

 

A previously unreleased Michael Jackson video for his 2003 song "One More Chance" was posted on the singer's site Friday.

The R. Kelly-penned song was released as a single late that year and was featured on Jackson's Number Ones LP. The video is apparently unconnected to Michael, the album of previously unreleased material, out December 14.

The video was filmed primarily in Las Vegas in 2003 and wasn't completed, although Jackson approved the cut before it was shelved, according to his site. Presumably it was abandoned after the November 2003 raid on Jackson's Neverland Ranch by police investigating child-molestation accusations against the singer.

The clip features Jackson dancing and lip-synching in a theater, but, in a switch, he performs around (and on top of) tables while the audience stands on the stage. The song's mellow tempo keeps his dance moves calm until around the three-minute mark, when he cuts loose, bounding on tables, kicking over lamps and pulling some trademark spins and arms-outstretched gestures.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
