Friday Fun: Take A Five-Minute Break With Janet Jackson


It was No. 1 in the middle of January 20 years ago, but damn if Janet Jackson's "Love Will Never Do (Without You)" doesn't sound tailor-made for every single summertime, so get near a window and turn up your speakers. (This post brought to you in part by the news that Rhythm Nation 1814—Jackson's utterly crucial 1989 album on which this song, and at least five other all-time killer singles, first appeared—is $5 at Amazon MP3, but mostly by the fact that this track sounds like falling in love, or at least into a five-minute infatuation.)

Miss the days when Janet was revered as Madonna. That mentality was still alive in 2001 when her All for You album was released and she was additionally inducted as MTV's first "Icon."  

Ever since her Superbowl debacle she's become this silly afterthought. It's unfair.

Have always this video, and I can't believe Djimon is 25 here!

It's totally unfair. (Although I feel like the subpar material she's put out recently hasn't helped much. "Make Me" was awesome and so was "Nothing," but the Discipline and 20 Y.O. singles were stinkers and the albums were too long.) And she can still put on a show -- did you see her on this last tour?

Thank you.

Plus, 1990–91 Janet isn't exactly wearing a January outfit in that video.
