Human Nature comes from the Thriller album released in 1982, the single was later released on July 3rd 1983 as the 5th single off the Thriller album and also the 5th top 10 hit from Thriller.

Human Nature was never released in the UK but peaked at number 7 in the US.

There was never a music video made for Human Nature as it was not released worldwide. Had it been released world wide it could have possibly been a bigger hit and a music video made.

This single was written by Steve Porcaro an original member of band Toto and John Bettis who was a member of the band Spectrus and produced by Quincy Jones.

Bettis was asked to write lyrics for human nature as he has written for the likes of The Carpenters and The Pointers Sisters.

In 1985 American Jazz trumpeter, band leader and composer Miles Davis included human nature on his album entitled your under arrest.

It was then remixed and released as right here/human nature by SWV where it hit number 3 in the UK charts.

In 2007 Alicia Keys, boys 2 men, Nas, SWV, Jason Nevins and Miles Davis did a cover of human nature as a Nobel peace price concert in Oslo.

Human nature then appeared in the film free Willy in 1993 alongside Michael's other song will you be there.

From 1994 to 2004 it was covered by various artists including, Nas, Jason Nevins, blackstreet, David Mead and boys 2 men.

On July 7th 2009, John Mayer played an instrumental tribute of the song at Michael's memorial service.

Michael performed human nature at his victory tour in 1984, the bad tour between 1987/89 and his dangerous tour in 1992/93

The song was not used for the History tour but Michael did a one off show at the Royal Brunei concert 1991.

Michael made each live performance of human nature different from one another by differing his dance routine, this is most noticeable in the bad tour and then in the dangerous tour.
