Notes

This double-AA side single was scheduled to be released to coincide with Michael Jackson's HBO special on December 10, 1995. However, the commercial release of the single was canceled in the U.S. due to lack of airplay for both songs, and the cancellation of the HBO special, due to MJ's illness.

"Earth Song" was a flop on the pop charts, failing to make the Hot 100 or any other airplay chart. "This Time Around" also failed to chart on the Hot 100 Airplay chart, although it did peak at No. 23 on the Hot R&B Airplay chart. On the Club Play chart, "This Time Around / Earth Song" peaked at No. 18.

Tracks 1 to 7 have never been released commercially. Track 8 can be found on the CD and cassette editions of "Blood On The Dancefloor - HIStory In The Mix".
