Michael Jackson - Smile

"Smile" is a cover version of Charlie Chaplin's 1928 song, which Jackson covered for its inclusion on HIStory. It was due to be released as HIStory's seventh and final single in October 1997. However its release was subsequently cancelled by Sony against Michael's wishes. (There are a few promotional CD singles and 12" Vinyls floating around, which have been sold on eBay anything from £550-£850).

Some promo copies featured a rare and highly sought after picture sleeve depicting Michael dressed as Charlie Chaplin.



A promotional short film, including footage of Charlie Chaplin, is believed to have been shot - remains unreleased.

A Capella snippet by Michael heard in his infamous interview with
Martin Bashir, Living With Michael Jackson, first screened in the UK
by ITV1 in February 2003.

Hit versions include:
Nat ‘King’ Cole – no.2 in the UK in 1954.
Tony Bennett – no.73 on the Hot 100 in the States in 1959.
Betty Everett & Jerry Butler – no.42 on both American charts in 1965.
Robert Downey, Jr. – no.68 in the UK in 1993.

*Written by John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons.
*Composed by Charles Chaplin.
*Produced by David Foster and Michael Jackson.

Smile - Lyrics

Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You'll get by...

If you smile
With your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just...

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just...

Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You'll get by...

If you smile
Through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile...

That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile
