''The Way You Make Me Feel’ is a good example of Michael Jackson’s incredible vocal talent. Michael sang all the parts on this song. Nothing in this remarkable recording is sampled or copied in any way. We had no pitch correction or any such device at this point in time in the studio: we relied entirely on Michael’s own incredible sense of pitch. I’ve always felt that if a lesser artist than Michael Jackson had sung ''The Way You Make Me Feel'' it would never have seen the light of day!'' - Bruce Swedien (engineer)
''It’s a really intense shuffle. I remember how much fun I had laying down those offbeat parts, the bass line, all that stuff, and watching the expression on Michael’s face – he’d get that big grin that meant you had it.'' - Greg Phillinganes (keyboardist)
