"Another Part of Me" is a song by American recording artist Michael Jackson. Produced by Quincy Jones (and co-produced by Jackson) It was released as the sixth single on July 11, 1988 for the singer's seventh solo album, Bad (1987), the song was originally featured in Jackson's 1986 3-D film Captain EO. It is the sixth song on the album. The song also appeared as a dance attack and level song for the later revisions of Michael Jackson's Moonwalker video game (originally the first revision used excerpts of Thriller).
In July 2009, a short part of the song has been used by singer Madonna as a tribute during the second leg of her Sticky & Sweet Tour. A Jackson impersonator performed his signature moves, while dancing to a medley of Jackson's songs.
It was revealed in Spike Lee's Bad 25 documentary that "Another Part of Me" was originally not going to be featured on the album, but instead "Streetwalker". But after Jackson's manager Frank DiLeo danced along to the song, it was decided that the song would be featured on the album. "Streetwalker" was later released on the 2001 special edition and the second disc of 25th anniversary re-issue.
An official video was released in 1988, directed by Patrick Kelly, featuring Jackson performing the song live during his Bad World Tour with concert footage filmed live from Wembley Stadium and Parc des Princes. It is featured on the DVD Michael Jackson's Vision and the Target version DVD of Bad 25.
"Another Part of Me" was performed on the second leg of the Bad World Tour with an extra instrumental section added at the end which was only briefly heard at the end of the single. In the USA portion of the second leg, it was played at the same speed as the original but with some instruments altered. In the Europe portion of the second leg, it was played much more quickly than the original single. A live version of the song is available on the DVD Live at Wembley July 16, 1988. A snippet of the song was used for the "This Is It" concerts during the song "Jam", but the shows were cancelled, due to his sudden death.
