    Default The Music of Janet Damita Jo (Janet appreciation thread)

    I saw a thread about the music of Jermaine and thought I would start one on the talented Miss Janet!

    After Michael she is my favourite Jackson in terms of music! She has released some killer tunes She is a legend in her own right and has made a huge impact on popular music.

    So what is everyones favourite songs from her? And for those who have heard all her albums what are your top 4 from each album? Any great songs that are not mainstream that you think are really good? Post youtube links of your favourite tunes!

    I'll start with my favs from her first 2 albums (I know ppl say these were her weakest albums but I still think they are good):

    Janet Jackson

    I think there is already a thread for Janet..

    But anyway I like her music, too. My sister used to be MJ and JJ fan so I've always listened to her songs but only after Michael's passing I really started to collect her music on my iPod and so on.. And I love the fact that Janet is, just like Michael, such a sweet person by heart, too. And she's sooo beautiful!

    There's so many amazing songs, Janet is truly one of my favorite singers ever, she has a very sweet voice, it may not be powerful but it's soothing, plus she can dance her butt off, no other female comes close to her...

    Fave songs:

    Miss you much
    What have you done for me lately
    Someone to call my lover
    Got till its gone
    Rhythm Nation
    If!!! <----LOVE that one
    You want this

    My all-time fave is "together again" because of that song I became a fan of janet. though it totally has a new meaning by now and difficult to listen to without havin tears in my eyes, it's still... it's just so positive.

    I have her first 2 cds aswell, but don't have any fave songs, I've to admit I don't like the songs that much

    Control
    Funny how time flies when you're havin fun /Nasty / Control / What have you done for me lately

    Rhythm Nation
    Rhythm Nation / State of the World / MYM / Come Back to Me

    Janet
    You Want This / If (<- OMG I LOVE If, I remember learnin the dance, because I loved it so much) / New Agenda / Whoops Now

    The Velvet Rope (really love the whole album)

    All for you
    You Ain't Right / All For You / China Love / Trust A Try / Son Of A Gun / Someone To Call My Lover / Doesn't really matter / Better Days

    Damita Jo
    Damita Jo / Sexhibition / Strawberry Bounce / My Baby / All Nite (Don't Stop) / I Want You / Just A Little While

    20 Y.O.
    So Excited / Show Me / Do It 2 Me / Call On Me

    Discipline
    Feedback / LUV / 2nite / Can't B Good / Never Letchu Go

    Accept Me / Make Me / God's Stepchild / Ask for more

    Gosh, I think I'd have saved a lot time if I'd just have said that I love all songs LOL
