"Eaten Alive" is a 1985 single released by Diana Ross on the RCA label. It was the first release off her Eaten Alive album. The song was written by Barry Gibb, Maurice Gibb and Michael Jackson the latter also co-producing with Barry and his team. Jackson and Barry Gibb can be heard singing in the background of the song with Jackson at times co-singing lead with Ross. The danceable song became a modest hit on the Pop Singles chart peaking at number seventy-seven while faring much better on the R&B singles chart where it peaked at number ten helped by BET's heavy rotation of the music video.
In the song's original copyright registration from 11 March 1985 it was credited to Barry Gibb and Maurice Gibb. It was not until Michael Jackson heard the demo of it that he suggested the chorus could be improved. The second copyright registration was filed 1 June 1985 with the note ‘words and music in the choruses have been completely rewritten’.
