Trivia

Wist je dat? In 1997 verscheen het album "Blood on the Dance Floor: HIStory in the Mix". Dit album werd gezien als een vervolg van HIStory omdat het slechts vijf nieuwe nummers bevatte. De rest van de cd was een remix van de successen van HIStory. Het album verkocht wereldwijd zes miljoen exemplaren en is daarmee het bestverkochte remixalbum aller tijden. In de VS sloeg het album nauwelijks aan en werd matig verkocht..

Songtekst

He got kicked in the back
He say that he needed that
He hot willed in the face
Keep daring to motivate
He say one day you will see
His place in world history
He dares to be recognized
The fire's deep in his eyes

How many victims must there be
Slaughtered in vain across the land
And how many struggles must there be
Before we choose to live the prophet's plan
Everybody sing...

Every day create your history
Every path you take you're leaving your legacy
Every soldier dies in his glory
Every legend tells of conquest and liberty

Don't let no one get you down
Keep movin' on higher ground
Keep flying until
You are the king of the hill
No force of nature can break
Your will to self motivate
She say this face that you see
Is destined for history

How many people have to cry
The song of pain and grief across the land
And how many children have to die
Before we stand to lend a healing hand
Everybody sing...

Chorus:
Every day create your history
Every path you take you're leaving your legacy
Every soldier dies in his glory
Every legend tells of conquest and liberty
Every day create your history
Every page you turn you're writing your legacy
Every hero dreams of chivalry
Every child should sing together in harmony

All nations sing
Let's harmonize all around the world

How many victims must there be
Slaughtered in vain across the land
(Lord we need your assistance)
And how many children must we see
Before we learn to live as brothers
And create one family oh...

Chorus

A soldier dies
A mother cries
The promised child shines in a baby's eyes
All nations sing
Let's harmonize all around the world


SONGTEKST GHOSTS

There's a ghost out in the hall
There's a ghoul upon the bed
There's something in the walls
There's blood upon the stairs
And it's floating through the room
And there's nothing I can see
And I know it's blessed this tune
Because now it's haunting me

(Don't understand it)
(Don't understand it)

There's a thumping in the floor
There's a creak behind the door
There's a rockin' in the chair
But there's no one sitting there
There's a ghastly smell around
But nobody to be found
And a coffin inlay open
Where a restly soul is pokin'

(Don't understand it)
(Don't understand it)

And who gave you the right to scare my family?
And who gave you the right to scare my baby? She needs me
And who gave you the right to shake my family tree?
They put a knife in my back
Shot an arrow in me
Tell me are you the ghost of jealousy
The ghost of jealousy

There's a thumpin in the floor
There's a creak behind the door
There's a rockin' in the chair
But nobody's sitting there
There's a ghastly smell around
But nobody to be found
And a coffin inlay open
Where a restless soul is going

(Don't understand it)
(Don't understand it)

And who gave you the right to scare my family?
And who gave you the right to scare my baby? She needs me
And who gave you the right to shake my family tree?
And who gave you the right to take? Intrusion
To see me
And who gave you the right to scare me family?
And who gave you the right to hurt my baby? She needs me
And who gave you the right to shake my family tree?
You put a knife in my back
Shot an arrow in me
Tell me are you the ghost of jealousy?
The ghost of jealousy
(Repeat)

(Come on)
(It's dynamite)
(A piece of mine)
Tell me are you the ghost of jealousy?
