Singles from The Original Soul of Michael Jackson
  1. "Twenty-Five Miles"
    Released: October, 1987

The Original Soul of Michael Jackson is a remix album of songs by Michael Jackson, recorded and published early in his solo career in the early 1970s and remixed in 1987.

While the album claims to 'contains music never before released', the only new song available was a re-dubbed cover of Edwin Starr's 1970 hit "Twenty-Five Miles", sung by the Jackson Five and solely credited to Michael. The original recording of the song was included on the 2009 set Hello World: The Motown Solo Collection.

Some songs were newly edited on the album, with a newly dubbed version of "Dancing Machine". "Ain't No Sunshine" were also slightly different in the vocals and a modern drum machine were added to "Twenty-Five Miles".

"Melodie" was planned for a single in an effort to promote the record in the US, but was scrapped for a promo-only single "Twenty-Five Miles"/"Up On The Housetop".[1]
