    This is from Jackie in the Jacksons Legacy book.

    "I was dating Kathy Hilton, Paris' mom, for two or three years. One day I was leaving Kathy's house at the top of Mulholland Drive, and the whole idea for the song came into my mind like an anthem. I was driving along Mulholland and I kept singing the melody, with the drums and music and everything. I had a little Dictaphone in the car and I put everything on the phone. I got to the house in Encino and went right to the piano. Michael said, "What's that? I like it. Can I write that with you?"

    And I said, "Sure."

    And that's how we wrote "Can You Feel It".
    "Because we do not know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens a certain number of times, and a very small number, really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you can't even concieve of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more. Perhaps not even that. How many times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless." - Brandon Lee
