Another Part of Me

by Michael Jackson

We’re taking over
We have the truth
This is the mission
To see it through
Don’t point your finger
Not dangerous
This is our planet
You’re one of us

We’re sending out
A major love
And this is our
Message to you
(Message to you)
The planets are lining up
We’re bringing brighter days
They’re all in line
Waiting for you
Can’t you see?
You’re just another part of me

Out from a nation
fulfill the truth
The final message
We’ll bring to you
There is no danger to
feel the truth
So come again
We need you

We’re sending out
A major love
And this is our message to you
(Message to you)
The planets are lining up
We’re bringing brighter days
They’re all in line
Waiting for you
Sho’ nuff true…

You’re just another part of me

  1. Awesome article. I do have a question, you stated: Joe Vogel describes “Another Part of Me” as “the spacey synth-driven groove about the cosmic power of music to bring about global peace and harmony.” It is also associated with the Harmonic Convergence of the planets that occurred in 1987, to which the lyrics refer:

    The planets are lining up
    We’re bringing brighter days
    They’re all in line
    Waiting for you

    But the movie Captian EO was released in 1986, in which the song “Another Part of Me” was used in the Captain EO movie, so how is it possible that those lyrics are associated with the 1987 Harmonic Convergence of the planets?

    • Hi Kate. That’s a good question. 1987 was a while ago, so I could be mistaken, but my memory is that the convergence of the planets was a VERY big deal – that newspapers, news magazines, and other outlets were running articles about it years before it happened. For example, Voyager I and II were launched in 1977 – nine years before Captain EO – to take advantage of the alignment and collect (relatively) close-up photos of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. So I’m sure news outlets were talking about it a lot in 1977, and that continued through the following years as Voyager I and II reached new destinations and sent back images.

      We can see that kind of astrological anticipation today as well. For example, The Washington Post just ran an article yesterday about a solar eclipse that will be crossing the US in 2024 – six years from now.

      So given the amount of media coverage the planetary alignment received, I’m pretty sure Michael Jackson and the producers of Captain EO would have been well aware of it in 1987.
