Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed by the love of your life on the nearest friday. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in two days. Now you've started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on 5 songs in the next 143 minutes and your lovers name will appear in big letters across the screen this is so scary because it actually works!

I don't even like this song but when I saw Patrick do this live I instantly fell in love <3
BEST COVER OF ALL TIME LUV YA FOB
Fall Out Boy put their twist on a classic and it WORKED VERY WELL. It's better than Fergie's 'remix' of this. That straight up sucked. But I still think Michael's voice with this music would be the best version.

I think MJ's is best but FOB worked hard and theirs turned out great too!

For me if someone told me to beat it they would be on their knees in 5 seconds and proves that I should always carry a gun in my boot along with a knife in the other one
Love them both! OMG! :D
Oh my..
I love it <3
I love both the MJ and FOB version

Love you FOB <3

I agree with those saying that Michael's voice in this would be the best version. However if you like this rendition than the original, it's fine by me.

Okay that needs to be a thing. SOMEBODY SPLICE MICHAEL'S VOICE INTO THIS MUSIC!!!!
I had to play this for marching band......we l l not Fall Out Boy's version. But what do you think of Michael's vocals with this music? Perfection.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will get kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you do not post this comment on at least 3 songs you will die in 2 day. Now that you've started reading this don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in at least 144 minutes when press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works!!
