    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!

    ^^^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.
