    Was Michael Involved in Do The Bartman?

    I'm not aware if we ever got an answer to this. I'm thinking he wasn't involved, the background vocals don't sound like him imo.

    He was. Written by Bryan Loren and co-produced by MJ, but he remained uncredited because of recording conflicts. Bryan Loren also stated that MJ contributed towards backing vocals alongside Loren himself.

    ^^ I think there was a lot of confusion over Do The Bartman and MJ's involvement. Matt Groening claimed MJ wrote it, Bryan Loren denied that and said he was the sole composer.

    Bryan Loren likes to up Bryan Loren.

    Don't forget, he wrote the rap on Black or White because Bill Bottrell doesn't exist...

    Michael apparently said he would write The Simpsons a no 1 hit if they let him come on an episode of the show, and so he did.

    As I have always known it, Bryan wrote the music, MJ wrote the lyrics, with later editing from Simpsons people.

    Aye, Bryan did rap Bottrell's words and Loren also changed some of the rhythms, but didn't feel comfortable being a rapper.

    So, Billy did it after Loren left.

    Otherwise, Bryan is trying to claim all the credit for the rap.
    "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
