INVALID
- Michael Jackson's Vision

That makes Tom Bähler the common name for our purposes.

Michael Jackson's Vision is a video collection, kind of best of.
Two questions come to my mind on this one: Since this is a collection of previously published video clips, can we list song writers for ths title? And second, can music be originally written for a video at all, or is a video clip never an original release, since the album precedes them?

On topic: there is only one single profile including this credit of Tom Bahler (other profiles of the same title omit song writer credits), which lists a collection of song writers (without any assignment to the songs), where most of them are obviously not originally written for this clips:


I'd assume this credit to be invalid.

I agree with your assessment. Tom Bähler wrote the song 'She's Out of My Life' of Michael Jackson's 1979 'Off the Wall' album. As such, it doesn't qualify as an original song writing credit for the 2010 'Michael Jackson's Vision' compilation DVD. So that makes Tom Bähler the common name for our purposes.
