5.0 out of 5 stars Michael Jackson Back On Form! 1 May 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The album mix of "Hollywood Tonight" lulls the listener into a false sense of thinking that it may be another down-beat ballad like "Hold My Hand". But then...BAM! Michael Jackson beatboxes his way into a real stomper with an incredibly-catchy bassline and chorus. In my opinion, this is the certainly the best and most commercial track on the "Michael" album (though it's not my favourite!), and was an obvious choice for the next single.

This new "Throwback Mix" is also interesting - it uses a sample of "Billie Jean" combined with stripped-down but effective vocals from Michael. The muted bass is terrific and it is certainly a dance mix through and through. The decision to remove the spoken bridge as was present in the album version of the song was welcomed by those who expressed distaste in it, but personally I think the spoken bridge would have worked well in this mix too.

In any case, if you like MJ's previous music, you will LOVE this song. It has all of the elements of an MJ classic in-the-making, and harks back to such favourites as "Billie Jean", "Thriller" and "Bad". If you haven't purchased this excellent release already, I urge you to do so. You will not be disappointed.

Long live the King!

Although this is one of my favourite songs from the album `Michael', I'm a bit disappointed with this particular CD. It only offers two tracks. The previous single CD (Hold My Hand) offered four.

Having heard a few remixes of "Hollywood Tonight", I can say I don't particularly favoure the album version, still I think it should have been in here for completeness. The first track is the one from the video, I believe. It is nice to have it on CD. The long second track is strong and enjoyable.

I do enjoy the CD, but honestly, I would have expected some more material on it.

4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT MICHAEL JACKSON CD MAXI SINGLE 31 July 2011
By Michael S.W. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I currently have the MICHAEL CD with one of the tracks being the same song. However, the version was different. I first heard of HOLLYWOOD TONIGHT on a music video featuring a lovely young lady befitting the singing narration of the late King of Pop--going to Hollywood to pursue her celebrity stardom dreams. She engages in the same dance steps as MJ. The music meanwhile within this video bears no rap and has the drumbeat of MJ's top classic BILLIE JEAN. So I thought this was what I was getting when purchasing the MICHAEL CD Album. But the album version had a totally different drumbeat and rap portions that's not my cup of tea. SO I researched to find if there were any CD Maxi Singles of this track that may include the version as heard on the video and I found it--this CD Maxi Single has the version in question that's called the THROWBACK version, which is the first of two tracks on this Maxi CD Single. The second track is of a different version, a beat that sounds more technotronic, which is also not my cup of tea. So having said that, it's the reason why I give this CD, based on a 5 star rating, a 4.
