Human Nature


The song "Human Nature" by Michael Jackson is originally performed in the key of F#m (F sharp minor). It was written by the American songwriter team Steve Porcaro and John Bettis and was featured on Michael Jackson's sixth studio album, "Thriller," released in 1982. "Human Nature" is a pop ballad that showcases Jackson's vocal range and emotional delivery. Interestingly, the iconic keyboard riff in the song was initially written by Steve Porcaro as a warm-up exercise on his Synclavier keyboard, which eventually caught the attention of producer Quincy Jones. The melody of the song is characterized by its smooth and hypnotic quality, with Jackson's distinct timbre guiding listeners through introspective lyrics that explore the complexities of human behavior.
