You know, it's my loss that I haven't thought much about "Baby Be Mine." It's true that the right contemporary remix -- by, say, Escort -- would release MJ's pent-up aching rivers ("Won't you stay with me until the morning sun," yow!). I also wonder whether the song was released at the wrong time. Would it have been a better fit on Dangerous or, better, the dreary Bad? Teddy Riley would have smoked this.

Probably my favorite song on the album, if only because when I finally went back and heard the two I didn't know, I was shocked to find it could hang with the hits. Heavenly synth lines.
