    HIStory - Past, Present and Future, Book I , a double-disc album (one half greatest hits, one half studio album), was released in June of 1995 by the Epic Records division of Sony BMG.

    The first disc, (HIStory Begins) contains fifteen hit singles from the past fifteen years of Jackson's career to this point. The tracklist includes fourteen U.S. Top 10 singles (nine of which were number-one hits) plus the worldwide top 5 hit "Heal the World". The second disc, (HIStory Continues) contains fifteen previously unreleased recordings, five of which were released as singles.

    HIStory debuted at #1 in several countries including the UK and the U.S, while also being nominated for several 1996 Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year, which it did not win however "Scream", expensive science fiction-inspired music video won a Grammy Award for Best Short-Form Music Video.

    HIStory was the first album where Michael Jackson showcased his instrumental abilities, playing keyboard and synthesizer, guitar, drums and percussion, as well as lead and backing vocals. He was also more involved in the production of this album, collaborating with producers Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Dallas Austin, Bill Bottrell and R. Kelly. Michael also experimented with more genres on this album than on any other album, ranging from orchestral to adult contemporary rhythm and blues to "Gothic pop".

    Over 390,000 copies of the album were sold in its first week. In October 1999, the RIAA certified HIStory at 7x Platinum, for shipments of 3.5 million in the United States. Thus far, HIStory has sold an estimated 18 million copies worldwide (36 million units) and is one of the greatest selling multiple-disc album of all times. The first disc of previously released hits was re-released in 2001 selling an estimated 3 million. The album debuted at #1 in most countries around the world.

    The first single from the album was "Scream"/"Childhood", released in May 1995 as a double A-side single. "Scream" was a duet between Michael and his younger sister Janet, and "Childhood" was the theme song for the film "Free Willy 2".
    "You Are Not Alone", the second HIStory's single, was written and produced by R. Kelly and released in August 1995. It became the first-ever single to debut at number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.
    The other successful singles and the HIStory World Tour helped HIStory to go onto sell over 1.5 million copies during its promotional period.

    Smile
    (Charlie Chaplin song)



    Single by Michael Jackson
    from the album HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I


    Released December 28, 1997
    Format CD single, 12" single
    Recorded 1995
    Genre Ballad,R&B
    Length 4:55 (album version)
    4:10 (short version)

    Michael Jackson singles chronology
    "Is It Scary"
    (1997)
    "Smile"
    (1997)
    "You Rock My World"
    (2001)

    "Smile" is a song, originally used as an instrumental theme in the soundtrack for the 1936 Charlie Chaplin movie Modern Times. Chaplin composed the music. While some believe the words were written by John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons, the sheet music was sold with the lyrics accredited to Chaplin[citation needed]. In the lyrics, the singer is telling the listener to cheer up and that there is always a bright tomorrow, just as long as they smile. "Smile" has become a popular standard since its original use in Chaplin's film.



    Original version

    Smile, though your heart is aching,
    Smile, even though it's breaking.
    When there are clouds in the sky-
    You'll get by.
    If you smile through your fear and sorrow,
    Smile and maybe tomorrow
    You'll see the sun come shining through
    For you.
    Light up your face with gladness,
    Hide ev'ry trace of sadness.
    Although a tear may be ever so near,
    That's the time you must keep on trying,
    Smile, what's the use of crying?
    You'll find that life is still worthwhile,
    If you just smile.




    Michael Jackson version



    Singer Michael Jackson recorded the song for his 1995 double album HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I. It was planned to be released as the eighth single from the album in 1997 but was canceled days before its release date. Only a few copies from the Netherlands, Germany and South Africa (where the record distribution was started previous to the withdrawal) were saved as the other copies were withdrawn. The rarest pressings include the CD maxi single (estimated value over €500) and the single track promo.

    The remixes on this release have never been released commercially since, but some can also be found on the "Is It Scary" promotional 12" records from the UK. The "Downtempo Groove Mix" is the rarest mix of this song because it was only released on the maxi. The remix was uncredited, but was actually done by Eddie Arroyo.

    Jackson had never performed this song live; an HBO special was once planned with the song being performed, but Jackson collapsed during the concert's rehearsals. During the final concerts of his HIStory World Tour, the song was played at the beginning of each concert in memory of Princess Diana. In Living with Michael Jackson, he mentioned the song while at Neverland Ranch and sang it while he was in Las Vegas.

    Around November 2005, a number of bootlegged 12" records appeared on eBay and some record fairs in Germany and The Netherlands. This explains why the 12" presses are the most common, although the original is still considered the most rare. The short version of "Smile" was later re-issued on the deluxe United Kingdom edition of King of Pop in 2008.

    Michael Jackson's brother, Jermaine Jackson, sang "Smile" at his memorial service on July 7, 2009, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, shortly after Michael Jackson's friend Brooke Shields mentioned it had been Jackson's favorite song. He also sang it in an interview with Today at Neverland before the memorial and only days after Michael had passed. During the internationally televised public memorial, Jermaine switched the words "gladness" and "sadness" in the lyrics, possibly in an unintentional flub of the lyrics.

    The song has since charted at in the UK, in Germany, in Switzerland and at #56 in Australia.



    Усмихни се...

    ''Усмихни се!
    Въпреки, че сърцето те боли…
    Усмихни се!
    Въпреки, че то е разбито…
    Когато има облаци в небето,
    ти ще го преживееш,
    ако се усмихнеш на твоя страх и тъга.
    Усмихни се!
    И може би утре,
    ще разбереш, че живота все още има смисъл,
    просто, ако осветиш лицето си с радост.
    Изтрий всеки тъжен спомен,
    Макар, че сълзата е на път да бликне,
    това е момента, в който трябва да продължиш да опитваш.
    Усмихни се!
    Каква е ползата от плача?
    Ще разбереш, че живота все още има смисъл,
    ако просто…..се УСМИХНЕШ !
    Въпреки, че сърцето те боли…''

    HIStory





    History was recorded to go onto Michael's History album but never got released as a single on its own.

    History was released alongside Michael's Ghosts single as a double A side, it hit number 5 in the UK charts but did not do so well anywhere else in the world and was not released in the US.

    The double A side stayed in the charts for 17 to 18 weeks in Belgium and Sweden.

    The History single was composed by Michael, James Harris the 3rd and Terry Lewis in 1995 and remixed in 1997 by Tony Moran entitled Tony Moran's History lesson in the History album booklet.

    Michael played the original History song on his website in 2005 as a celebration of not being found not guilty for allegations against him.

    Michael performed the History song on his History World Tour.

    The History original song contains a number of musical compositions and audio quotes, such as Beethoven lives upstairs, and a quote from Mohammed Ali, and Dr Martin Luthor King jnr. “I have a dream”. It also covered topics such as Statue Of Liberty, Disneyland, the Berlin Wall and first man on the moon.



    HIStory--- song history



    "HIStory" was originally composed by Michael Jackson, James Harris III and Terry Lewis in 1995.[1] It was the thirteenth track on the studio album HIStory, but was not released as a single. The song sampled multiple musical compositions and historical audio quotes, all of which were dispersed throughout the track. Early in the track, one even included quotes from an interview with a young Michael Jackson from 1970. Musical compositions sampled include "Beethoven Lives Upstairs" and "Pictures at an Exhibition". Audio quotes sampled were the "Charles Lindbergh Report" by Lowell Thomas, a report on Hank Aaron, "Robert Kennedy Eulogy" by Edward Kennedy, "Farewell to Baseball" by Lou Gehrig, "Greetings to the Children of England" by Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret, a quote from Muhammad Ali, Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream".

    The woman removing her virtual reality goggles in the music video for "HIStory".

    In 1997, Jackson issued the remix album Blood on the Dance Floor: HIStory in the Mix, the second single from the album would be the double A-side "HIStory"/"Ghosts". The "HIStory" portion was a Tony Moran remix of the original 1995 composition. The remix was entitled "Tony Moran's HIStory Lesson" in the album booklet.

    The music video that accompanied the remix opens with the scene of a woman, relaxing on a futuristic sofa, watching the music video through metallic virtual reality goggles. The video is set in a nightclub, inside the club, televisions, monitors and walls display the history of Jackson's filmography such as "In The Closet", "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough", "Scream/Childhood", "Black or White", "Jam", "Remember The Time", "Earth Song", "Man In The Mirror", "Say Say Say", scenes from his film Ghosts, and live performances from the Bad World Tour and the Dangerous World Tour. Wearing the goggles, the woman is led to believe she is in the nightclub too. The video ends with the woman removing the goggles




    HIStory

    He got kicked in the back
    He say that he needed that
    He hot willed in the face
    Keep daring to motivate
    He say one day you will see
    His place in world history
    He dares to be recognized
    The fires deep in his eyes

    How many victims must there be
    Slaughtered in vain across the land
    And how many struggles must there be
    Before we choose to live the prophets plan
    Everybody sing...

    Every day create your history
    Every path you take you're leaving your legacy
    Every soldier dies in his glory
    Every legend tells of conquest and liberty

    Don't let no one get you down
    Keep movin' on higher ground
    Keep flying until
    You are the king of the hill
    No force of nature can break
    Your will to self motivate
    She say this face that you see
    Is destined for history

    How many people have to cry
    The song of pain and grief across the land
    And how many children have to die
    Before we stand to lend a healing hand
    Everybody sing...

    Every day create your history
    Every path you take you're leaving your legacy
    Every soldier dies in his glory
    Every legend tells of conquest and liberty
    Every day create your history
    Every page you turn you're writing your legacy
    Every hero dreams of chivalry
    Every child should sing together in harmony

    All nations sing
    Let's harmonize all around the world

    How many victims must there be
    Slaughtered in vain across the land
    And how many children must we see
    Before we learn to live as brothers
    And be one family oh...

    Every day create your history
    Every path you take you're leaving your legacy
    Every soldier dies in his glory
    Every legend tells of conquest and liberty
    Every day create your history
    Every page you turn you're writing your legacy
    Every hero dreams of chivalry
    Every child should sing together in harmony

    A soldier dies
    A mother cries
    The promised child shines in a baby's eyes
    All nations sing
    Let's harmonize all around the world



    HIStory-превод

    Изритаха го отзад,
    Каза, че имал нужда от това.
    Силно решен,
    продължавайки сърцато да го мотивира
    той каза: “Един ден ще видиш
    неговото място в световната история.
    Дръзна да бъде разпознат
    пламъкът дълбоко в очите му.”

    Колко жертви трябва да бъдат
    избити напразно по света
    и колко усилия трябва да бъдат положени
    преди да изберем да живеем по плана на пророка.
    Всички пеят...

    Всеки ден създаваме своята история.
    По всяка пътека, по която поемеш, оставяш своето завещание.
    Всеки войник загива в своята слава,
    всяка легенда разказва за завоевание и свобода.

    Не позволявай на никого да те сломи,
    продължавай по извисената земя,
    продължавай да летиш, докато
    станеш цар на хълма.
    Никоя природна сила не може да сломи
    твоята воля, с която се мотивираш.
    Тя казва: „Това лице, което виждаш,
    е родено за историята.”

    Колко хора трябва да изплачат
    песента за болката и мъката по света
    и колко деца трябва да умрат
    преди да станем и да подадем ръка
    всички пеят...

    Всеки ден създаваме своята история.
    По всяка пътека, по която поемеш, оставяш своето завещание.
    Всеки войник загива в своята слава,
    всяка легенда разказва за завоевание и свобода.
    Всеки ден създаваме своята история,
    с всяка страница, която обърнеш пишеш своето завещание,
    всеки герой мечтае за галантност.
    Всички деца би трябвало да пеят заедно в хармония.

    Всички нации пеят
    Нека всички по света се обединим

    Колко жертви трябва да бъдат
    избити напразно по света
    и колко деца трябва да видим
    преди да се научим да живеем като братя
    и да оставим поколение...

    Всеки ден създаваме своята история.
    По всяка пътека, по която поемеш, оставяш своето завещание.
    Всеки войник загива в своята слава,
    всяка легенда разказва за завоевание и свобода.
    Всеки ден създаваме своята история,
    с всяка страница, която обърнеш пишеш своето завещание,
    всеки герой мечтае за галантност.
    Всички деца би трябвало да пеят заедно в хармония.

    Войник умира,
    майка плаче.
    ...
    Всички нации пеят -
    нека всички по света се обединим!

    EARTH SONG




    What about sunrise
    What about rain
    What about all the things
    That you said we were to gain...
    What about killing fields
    Is there a time
    What about all the things
    That you said was yours and mine...
    Did you ever stop to notice
    All the blood we've shed before
    Did you ever stop to notice
    The crying Earth the weeping shores?

    Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah
    Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah

    What have we done to the world
    Look what we've done
    What about all the peace
    That you pledge your only son...
    What about flowering fields
    Is there a time
    What about all the dreams
    That you said was yours and mine...
    Did you ever stop to notice
    All the children dead from war
    Did you ever stop to notice
    The crying Earth the weeping shores

    Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah
    Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah

    I used to dream
    I used to glance beyond the stars
    Now I don't know where we are
    Although I know we've drifted far

    Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah
    Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah

    ПЕСЕН ЗА ЗЕМЯТА

    Какво ще стане с изгрева?
    Какво ще стане с дъжда?
    Какво ще стане с всички онези неща,
    които каза, че ще подобрим?
    Какво ще стане с Полетата на смъртта?
    Има ли време?
    Какво ще стане с всичко,
    за което казваше, че е наше?
    Някога отдели ли време, за да забележиш
    пролятата кръв?
    Отдели ли време, за да обърнеш внимание
    на плачещата Земя, на плачещите брегове?

    Какво сторихме на света!
    Виж какво направихме.
    Какво ще стане с мира,
    който обеща на сина си?

    Какво ще стане с цветните полета?
    Има ли време?
    Какво ще стане с мечтите,
    за които казваше, че са наши?
    Някога отдели ли време, за да забележиш
    децата, убити във война?
    Отдели ли време, за да обърнеш внимание
    на плачещата Земя, на плачещите брегове?

    Мечтаех.
    Вглеждах се отвъд звездите.
    Не знам къде се намираме сега,
    макар да съм убеден, че изминахме дълъг път.

    Какво стана вчера?
    (Какво стана с нас?)
    Какво ще стане с моретата?
    (Какво ще стане с нас?)
    Небесата се сгромолясват.
    (Какво ще стане с нас?)
    Не мога да си поема въздух.
    (Какво ще стане с нас?)
    Какво ще стане с кървящата Земя?
    (Какво ще стане с нас?
    Не можем ли да почувстваме раните й?
    (Какво ще стане с нас?)
    Какво ще стане с природата?
    (Какво ще стане с нас?)
    Тя е утробата на живота.
    (Какво ще стане с нас?)
    Какво ще стане с животните?
    (Какво ще стане?)
    Превърнахме кралства в пепел.
    (Какво ще стане с нас?)
    Какво ще стане със слоновете?
    (Какво ще стане с нас?)
    Изгубихме ли доверието им?
    (Какво ще стане с нас?)
    Какво ще стане с плачещите китове?
    (Какво ще стане с нас?
    Разрушихме моретата.
    (Какво ще стане с нас?)
    Какво ще стане с горските пътеки,
    изгорени въпреки молбите ни?
    (Какво ще стане с нас?)
    Какво ще стане със свещената земя,
    (Какво ще стане с нея?)
    разделена заради убежденията ни?
    (Какво ще стане с нас?)
    Какво ще стане с обикновения човек?
    (Какво ще стане с нас?)
    Не можем ли да го освободим?
    (Какво ще стане с нас?)
    Какво ще стане с умиращите деца?
    (Какво ще стане с нас?)
    Не чуваш ли, че плачат?
    (Какво ще стане с нас?)
    Къде сбъркахме?
    Някой да ми каже причината.
    (Какво ще стане с нас?)
    Какво ще стане с бебетата?

    ------------------------------------------
    "Earth Song" is the third single from Michael Jackson's album HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I. It is a ballad that incorporates elements of blues, gospel and opera. Jackson had a long-standing history of releasing socially conscious material such as "We Are the World", "Man in the Mirror" and "Heal the World". However, "Earth Song" was the first that overtly dealt with the environment and animal welfare. The song was written and composed by Jackson; the task of production was split between Jackson, David Foster and Bill Bottrell. Reviews were generally favorable, but some charged that the song sounded pompous, even if unintentional."Earth Song" was accompanied by a lavish music video shot on four geographical regions. It centered around the destruction and rebirth of Earth and went on to receive a Grammy nomination in 1997. The song was a top five hit in most European countries. In the UK, it remains Jackson's best-selling single. "Earth Song" was not released as a single in the United States. When Jackson performed the song at the 1996 BRIT Awards, Jarvis Cocker attempted to interrupt the show and stormed the stage, offended with the imagery presented. Jackson went on to receive recognition from various animal and environmental organizations.
    -------------------------------------------

    Искам да добавя още нещо. Информацията, която можете да видите в самия край на видеото на клипа по-горе, гласи:

    "Видеото на “Earth song” e заснето в четири континента, всеки от които са в някаква форма на бедствие/нещастие, създадено от човека и неговата технология.
    Тези места включват:

    THE AMAZON RAINFOREST /Гората „Амазонка”/

    Огромна част от тази гора, както виждате в това видео не съществува дълго. Тя беше предназначена да бъде тотално унищожена седмица след записването на това видео. Хората, участващи във видеото са местни от региона и не са професионални актьори.


    CROATIA /Кроатия/

    Сцените бяха заснети във военната зона с живеещите в тази област.

    TANZANIA /Танзания/

    Сцената включва масаи (африканско племе) в собственото им село. Никое животно не бе наранено по никакъв начин по време на правенето на видеото. Суровите кадри на действително нечовешкото третиране на животните е придобито от документални архиви. Трябва да е забелязано, че когато снимането е в прогрес, африкански слон (незаснет във видеото) е убит от бракониери не повече от миля от снимките на клипа.

    NEW YORK

    Снимките на изгорената гора са създадени на поле в Warwick, Ню Йорк, дългo 6 акра. Снимките на кадрите настъпили в същата седмица като хиляди акра на гората на Long Island и Ню Джърси бяха унищожени, поради палеж."

    Released November 4, 1996 (Worldwide)
    August 28, 1997 (U.S.)
    Format CD single, 7", 12"
    Recorded 1993 – 1994
    Genre R&B, Trip-Hop
    Length 5:44 (Album Version)
    4:05 (Radio Edit)
    Label Epic Records
    Writer(s) Michael Jackson
    Producer Michael Jackson

    "Stranger in Moscow" is the fifth and final single from Michael Jackson's album HIStory. The song was released worldwide in November 1996 but was not released in the United States until August 1997. The track was written by Jackson in 1993, at the height of the highly publicized child abuse accusations made against him, while on tour in Moscow.

    During his visit to Moscow in September, Jackson came up with the song "Stranger in Moscow" which would be released on his 1995 album HIStory. It was during a time when Jackson felt very alone, far away from his family and friends, yet every night throughout his tours fans would stay by his hotel and support him. "Stranger in Moscow" turned out to be one of Jackson's most critically acclaimed songs ever. The song's music video depicts the lives of six individuals, including Jackson, who are left isolated and disconnected from the world around them. The imagery in the video has been replicated in television adverts.

    When the song was complete and Jackson was happy with the result, he decided to make the second disc of HIStory a full studio album instead of a greatest hits compilation with several new tracks. Upon release, "Stranger in Moscow" was praised by critics, today it remains one of his most critically acclaimed pieces and has been compared favorably alongside the likes of "Billie Jean" and "Who Is It". Commercially, the single saw mixed results by Jackson's standards, but the highly successful album had already been on the market nearly 18 months and numerous A-side, B-side and radio only singles had already been released to a positive commercial reception.



    "Stranger In Moscow"

    I was wandering in the rain
    Mask of life, feelin' insane
    Swift and sudden fall from grace
    Sunny days seem far away
    Kremlin's shadow belittlin' me
    Stalin's tomb won't let me be
    On and on and on it came
    Wish the rain would just let me

    How does it feel (How does it feel)
    How does it feel
    How does it feel
    When you're alone
    And you're cold inside

    Here abandoned in my fame
    Armageddon of the brain
    KGB was doggin' me
    Take my name and just let me be
    Then a begger boy called my name
    Happy days will drown the pain
    On and on and on it came
    And again, and again, and again...
    Take my name and just let me be

    How does it feel (How does it feel)
    How does it feel
    How does it feel
    How does it feel
    How does it feel (How does it feel now)
    How does it feel
    How does it feel
    When you're alone
    And you're cold inside

    How does it feel (How does it feel)
    How does it feel
    How does it feel
    How does it feel
    How does it feel (How does it feel now)
    How does it feel
    How does it feel
    When you're alone
    And you're cold inside

    Like stranger in Moscow
    Like stranger in Moscow
    We're talkin' danger
    We're talkin' danger, baby
    Like stranger in Moscow
    We're talkin' danger
    We're talkin' danger, baby
    Like stranger in Moscow
    I'm live in lonely
    I'm live in lonely, baby
    Stranger in Moscow

    "Why have you come from the West?
    Confess! To steal the great achievments of
    the people, the accomplishments of the workers..."

    "Чужденец в Москва"

    Скитах се из дъжда...
    маската на живота...чувствайке се полудял...
    Галантно и бързо падане от изяществото,
    слънчевите дни изглежда са далеч...
    Сянката на Кремъл ме закрива...
    Гробницата на Сталин не ме оставя на мира...
    Продължаваше, продължаваше и продължаваше...
    Исках просто дъжда да ме пусне

    Какво е чувството ?
    Какво е чувството ?
    Какво е чувството ?
    Какво е чувството ?
    ...когато си сам
    и ти е студено отвътре...

    Изоставен тук при славата ми...
    Армагедон на мозъка
    КГБ ме преследваше :
    вземете името ми и ме оставете...
    Тогава, просещо дете извика името ми
    ...щастливите дни ще удавят болката
    Продължаваше, продължаваше и продължаваше...
    ...и отново, и отново, и отново...

    Какво е чувството ?
    Какво е чувството ?
    Какво е чувството ?
    Какво е чувството ?
    Какво е чувството ?
    Какво е чувството ?
    Какво е чувството сега ?
    Какво е чувството ?
    Какво е чувството ?
    ...когато си сам
    и ти е студено отвътре...

    Какво е чувството ?
    Какво е чувството ?
    Какво е чувството ?
    Какво е чувството ?
    Какво е чувството ?
    Какво е чувството ?
    Какво е чувството сега ?
    Какво е чувството ?
    Какво е чувството ?
    ...когато си сам
    и ти е студено отвътре...

    Като чужденец в Москва (Господи, трябва да призная...)
    Като чужденец в Москва (Господи, трябва да призная...)
    Става въпрос за нещо опасно...
    Става въпрос за нещо опасно, мила...
    Като чужденец в Москва
    Става въпрос за нещо опасно...
    Става въпрос за нещо опасно, скъпа...
    Като чужденец в Москва
    Живея самотно,
    живея самотно, скъпа...
    ...чужденец в Москва

    Признайте ! Да окрадете плодовете на хората
    и постиженията на работниците ! „
