I immensely enjoyed the movie and just got the DVD. Unfortunately the scene selections don’t have label/descriptions and are just simply numbered (a sad growing trend with dvds these days).

Can anyone provide me a list of the songs from the movie and to what scene # they appear in the DVD? 

The DVD has 28 scenes and I believe there were about 20 songs performed in the film.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Looked it up here - not sure of the order, but the # is the same that you mentioned...


Songs performed in the film

    [*]"Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'"[*]"Speechless"[*]"Jam"[*]"They Don't Care About Us"[*]"Human Nature" °[*]"Smooth Criminal" *[*]"The Way You Make Me Feel"[*]"I Want You Back"[*]"The Love You Save"[*]"I'll Be There"[*]"Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground)" [Instrumental][*]"I Just Can't Stop Loving You" (duet with Judith Hill)[*]"Thriller"[*]"Beat It[*]"Black or White"[*]"Earth Song"[*]"Billie Jean"[*]"Man in the Mirror"[*]"This Is It" (played during the credits)[*]"Heal the World" (live audio played during the credits)

* - Smooth Criminal was both performed in the film and played as backing music during the dancers' auditions; the performance piece also included songs "Put the Blame on Mame" and "I Hadn't Anyone Till You".
° - Human Nature was also played during the credits and at the end of the movie, featuring an alternate video clip.

[edit] Notes

  • "Speechless" is an A cappella snippet.
  • "Jam" contains a sample of "Another Part Of Me".
  • A dance rehearsal sequence performed (named "Drill") contains samples of "Bad" and "Mind Is The Magic".
  • "They Don't Care About Us" contains samples of "HIStory", "She Drives Me Wild", and "Why You Wanna Trip On Me".
  • "I Want You Back", "The Love You Save" and "I'll Be There" is usually referred to as "Jackson 5 Medley".
  • "Shake Your Body" features a played sample of "Don't Stop 'til You Get Enough."
  • "Thriller" contains samples of "Is It Scary" (credited as "Ghosts - Underscore") and "Threatened".
  • "Earth Song" has a section from its demo version called "What About Us"[30].
  • "Heal the World" is a live version in which the audio is played during the end credits.
  • "Bad", "Don't Stop 'til You Get Enough" and "Who Is It" are played as backing music.
  • According to the iTunes exclusive documentary "The Musical Experience", 7 other songs were going to be performed for the concerts: "Rock With You", "Dirty Diana", "Will You Be There", "Dangerous", "You Are Not Alone", "We Are The World", and "Heal The World".

^^^Thanks for the list but the DVD has 28 scene selections so it wont be in direct order of the songs in the moive. There's interviews/behind the scenes stuff that extends it. 

I assume some of the scenes on the dvd contain some behind the scenes stuff, before, durring and after a particular song. And some scenes may not contain any songs at all. I simply want to know in which numbed DVD scene matches up to 20 songs from the movie. 

I find the scene selection feature in this DVD is useless. If I have freind over and want to show him the song "Smooth Criminal" for example, trying to find the scene to skip to is like a needle in a haystack. The scenes have NO discriptions and the pictures doesnt help because most of them are just pics of MJ singing which could be any song . 

If any DVD ever made needed captioned chapter stops, this was it. Pretty unfortunate.
