The voice behind ‘Lisa, it’s your birthday’

October 12, 2015 • By


Mike is a producer of The Simpsons and worked as showrunner for season three and four of the series. He also wrote ‘Stark Raving Dad’, which featured Michael Jackson under a pseudonym of John Jay Smith.

He told us that when Michael came to set he was ‘normal by Hollywood standards’, except for when he went to sing and produced a white gentleman who proceeded to sing as Michael Jackson in the episode including during ‘Lisa It’s Your Birthday.’

So of course, we had to track down the man with the voice.

More about ATV/Sony Catalogue: Sony, Michael Jackson Estate in Talks for Transfer of Massive Catalog

October 10, 2015 • By


Sony ATV, the famous music-publishing catalog that Michael Jackson bought in 1985 and used for decades as a financial lifeline, will soon be sold in full to the late singer’s estate — or the estate may sell its own half back to Sony Corp. The technology giant will “either become 100 percent owner or divest,” a source close to the deal tells Rolling Stone, adding that Sony reps will soon meet with Jackson’s estate reps to work out the terms. The company has begun what is known as a “buy-sell process,” with one source saying that “this is just the first step” for the company.
The catalog, which owns publishing rights for 750,000 songs, including tracks by the Beatles, Taylor Swift, the Rolling Stones, Marvin Gaye and many others, is worth an estimated $2 billion. It has been a 50-50 venture between Sony and Jackson since 1995, when the King of Pop agreed to merge his share with Sony’s music-publishing catalog. In 2007, an auditor said Jackson’s half of the catalog was worth $390 million — providing crucial assets for the big-spending superstar during a period when he was releasing almost no new music or making money off concert tours.
