  • Copied from: http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview?id=323469 Subject: Re: Response to Billie Jean by Michael Jackson Answered By: pinkfreud-ga on 01 Apr 2004 11:59 PST The song "I'm Billie Jean," released in 1982, was a real oddity. It was a near-clone of Michael Jackson's original song, both in music and in lyrics. The female singer was never identified, and the song was released only on a 12-inch EP titled "Michael." The EP was not in general distribution to the public, but it got some airplay by radio DJs and clubs. "The appearance of two Michael Jackson -related 12-inch EPs of mysterious origin - both called Michael - bearing the caveat 'These are weird renditions of weirder songs originally recorded by the weirdest artist' - was very intriguing... the Billie Jean answer song I'm Billie Jean (the kid was his son) is also entertaining."

It was released in 1983, and was sung by Lydia Murdock: "Billie Jean" was made into 'Superstar (I'm Billie Jean and I'm Mad as hell)' by Lydia Murdock." i80s Forums http://i80s.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-1895 Here you'll find the lyrics to Lydia Murdock's "Superstar": Bide et Musique http://www.bide-et-musique.com/song/1940.html You can purchase Lydia Murdock's "Superstar" here: Musicstack http://www.musicstack.com/tsearch/lydia_murdock/superstar
