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.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
