Originally on album:



Earth Song was the third single to be released from the History album, although it was not released as a single in the U.S.

Earth Song was Michael's first environmental awareness song, highlighting the destruction man causes to the earth's animals and rainforests of the world.

Michael had previously released a number of singles that promoted or requested worldwide harmony or improvement of some form, some of these singles raised millions for charity, most notably We Are the World and Heal the World.

The single was a huge hit, most notably in the UK, where it debuted in at the number one spot and there for a 6 week period over Christmas 1995, selling over 1 million copies. During that time a the first new Beatles track in 25 years was released and even that failed to topple Earth Song from the number one spot. The single hit Top 5 in the charts across most of Europe and number one in Spain and Switzerland selling over 3 million copies worldwide. It was only released to radios in the U.S and not for sale as single. If it had been released in the US it would surely have been one of his biggest ever selling worldwide singles.

Michael performed the song live as part of his History World Tour. During the performance he would be extended over the audience by a huge crane from which he performed and at times dangled from.
