There are quite a few stories of people who became famous by the weirdest luck. Songs, movies, tv shows.
Michael Jackson was working with Steve Porcaro of Toto on his Thriller album (strictly) as a keyboardist. Michael also wanted to hear some songs from the other keyboardist of David P, not Steve! Dave was the noted song writer of the 2.
Michael's producer Quincy Jones heard David wrote 2 songs & wanted them, so Dave who couldn't make it, asked Steve to send them. But he only had one cassette tape left (damn thats technology haha). And he had just recorded one song on it.
That was because he made the song in response to his daughter who got pushed down a slide at school by a boy the previous day. She asked her dad, Why did he do me that way?"
So dad, puzzled responded, well sometimes its just human nature.
It stuck with him and he put some chords down on piano & put it on cassette tape.
At that time Dave in another room asked Steve if he had an an extra cassette tape pronto! Quincy Jones wants to hear 2 songs I wrote.
So Steve decided to fast forward to the other side and put a label to make it look like David's 2 songs were on Side A.
Quincy got the tape listened and told Steve, he got busy with another project-while listening, but due to technology (cassettes had just gotten auto reverse capability) so it went on to play the other side, he heard it, Michael heard it.
And Human Nature was put on Thriller by accident of letting that tape play till the end. A song written based on an incident with his daughter at school, how cool is that?
