Fair use rationale for Image:Stranger In Moscow.jpg[edit]

Image:Stranger In Moscow.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

Useful links[edit]

Michael Jackson's "Stranger in Moscow" and Sega's "Sonic the Hedgehog 3 Ending-Credits"[edit]

The "fact" that Sonic the Hedgehog 3 featured a version of the song Stranger in Moscow two years prior to it's official release on Michael Jackson's HIStory album should be added to the page. This is pretty much straight forward and can be concluded with a quick search around the net. A quick search on youtube would reveal, that the songs are technically the same, just at a different pace and pitch. Unfortunately this would probably qualify as original research.

Another problem is finding reliable sources: http://info.sonicretro.org/Michael_Jackson and http://sonicresearch.org/basement/?p=mj_s3 probably do not qualify as a reputable source. I think otherwise, since I attribute the interview with Roger Hector, Sonic 3's Executive Coordinator, a high credibility. It can be found here: http://info.sonicretro.org/Roger_Hector_interview_by_hxc_(August_2005) But as I said: This is up for debate.

However, a quick look at http://www.musicpowers.com/cirocco.html would reveal, that composer Cirocco was working with Michael Jackson on the Sonic soundtrack. It just doesn't explicitly link the songs in debate but reliably prooves Michael Jackson's involvement in Sonic The Hedgehog.

Taking a look at the Sonic 3 ending credits, Brad Buxer, Bobby Brooks, Darryl Ross, Geoff Grace and Doug Grigsby are listed. They all are also credited in the HIStory booklet. So this is another prooven fact, however no explicit link between the two songs can be concluded from this information.

None the less this deserves attention and is noteworthy since mainstream media like YouTube or AOLvideo cover a broad variety of subjects regarding Michael Jackson's involvement in Sonic 3.

Any help and support integrating this content into the article is appreciated. PabloGS (talk) 01:34, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Again, the links you present are not reliable, they have no credibility, then your tying in stuff about credits, but it's your little investigation. If I could find reliable sources I would add the text myself. Please, let's keep the discussion here. — Realist2 01:48, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
Well, here's proof that Michael WAS a fan of Sonic the Hedgehog: The Truth: Michael Jackson's Sonic 3 Soundtrack--Angeldeb82 (talk) 22:15, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

In a magazine interview, Brad Buxer has confirmed that he and Jackson worked on the ending track for Sonic 3 and made the chord progression like Stranger in Moscow. Frankyboy5 (talk) 00:59, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Just fyi, here's a source for the interview with Buxer confirming that the chords written for Sonic 3 were later re-used for "Stranger In Moscow." [1] MMartyniuk (talk) 21:04, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

Fou compilation llistings?[edit]

The article would be better without the four {{Extra track listing}} entries for compilation albums. — John Cardinal (talk) 21:40, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
