Abstract: Invincible and the order of the songs. Karin and Elizabeth, discuss the last studio album of Michael Jackson, Invincible. The main question is: Is there a specific order in the way Michael Jackson assembled the songs on his album Invincible, and to what extend do they have a relation to the various colours used on the cd covers and/or the portrait?
