    Film is more than the twentieth-century art. It's another part of the twentieth-century mind. It's the world seen from inside. Don DeLillo

Scream - Michael, Janet Jackson

Tired of injustice
Tired of the schemes
Your lies are disgusting
What does it mean
Kicking me down
I gotta get up
As jacked as it sounds
The whole system sucks

With such confusion don't it make you wanna scream
You're bash abusing victimize within the scheme

You try to cope with every lie they scrutinize

Somebody please have mercy 'cause I just can't take it

Stop pressurin' me
Just stop pressurin' me
Stop pressurin' me
Make me wanna scream

Scream is the first track from Michael’s album, HIStory. The song deals with very important subject, which, in MJ’s case, concerned accusations against him and lies of tabloids. Especially in the phrase:

,,Tired of tellin' the story your way.
You're causin' confusion, you think it's okay’’

Not many people know that Scream short film is the most expensive one that has ever been created.

USA for Africa - We Are the World

There comes a time when we heed a certain call 
When the world must come together as one 
There are people dying 
Oh, and it's time to lend a hand to life 
The greatest gift of all 

We can't go on pretending day by day 
That someone, somehow will soon make a change 
We are all a part of God's great big family 
And the truth - you know love is all we need 
We are the world, we are the children 
We are the ones who make a brighter day 
so let's start giving 
There's a choice we're making 
We're saving our own lives 
It's true we'll make a better day 
Just you and me

We Are The World is one of the most touching singles of all time. Written and composed by Michael Jackson and produced by Quincy Jones, it was sang by the greatest artists of the 70s and 80s. The Jackson siblings (except from Janet, Rebbie and Jermaine), Lionel Richie, Ray Charles, Cyndi Lauper, Diana Ross or Tina Turner are only examples of all of the great singers involved in USA for Africa formation. They gathered together after the AMAs in 1985 and recorded the whole night. The single won two Grammy Awards and it was sold in excess of 20 million all over the world. All the money collected was donated to starving people in Africa.
