How well do you know Michael Jackson's songs?
Music critic Nelson George said of "Dangerous", "[it is] a pile driving track...that explodes from radio speakers. 'Dangerous' in fact, opens another window into Michael's artistic process". Jon Pareles of The New York Times called it "[Jackson's] latest song about a predatory lover" and highlighted the lyrics "I felt taken by lust's strange inhumanity",
Dangerous" was developed from another song titled "Streetwalker", which Jackson wrote for his 1987 Bad album. "Streetwalker" would appear as a bonus track on the 2001 expanded edition of that record. During recording sessions for the Dangerous album of 1991, Jackson recorded a 6:40 minute demo of "Dangerous", which he produced with Bill Bottrell. Music commentator Nelson George said of the demo, "[it is] very different to the final version. Here the keyboards are spacey, in strong contrast to the taunt, mechanical rhythm track. Throughout the song, Michael keeps up a spoken word rap about the dangerous woman who is this song's subject.
