Janet Jackson

Discussion in 'Comeback corner' started by Ordon, Jul 18, 2007.

  1. The main problem was the way she being promoted in the beginning. It was all a bit too wholesome. The songs never quite had that instant Jackson funk, it was very disco at a time when it was moving on. I have really enjoyed them over the last few years, but they didn't appeal when I first got into Control.

  2. I've always loved those first two albums, no they aren't up with the quality of her later work but they are worth remembering. 'Say You Do' especially.
  3. And You'll Never Find (A Love Like Mine) - what a choon.

    It took 12 entire years, but they finally changed the thumbnail of I Get Lonely so that it's no longer Beverley Knight.

    A bunch of videos got unblocked (Together Again most importantly), mis-titled videos have been renamed, thumbnails have been updated, and Doesn't Really Matter just got uploaded today ffff. There are still missing videos but this is something at least.

    (We've been over this before but it's infuriating that a YouTube page is quite literally the bare minimum for any pop girl, let alone someone as important as Janet Jackson, so the fact that it's only getting organized in the year 2022 is like..... I want to scream, but seeing as we're not getting anything other than #SundayInspiration these days, it's a win even though it shouldn't be).
  5. Doesn't Really Matter finally got uploaded to her official channel as well. I forgot that the bridge is completely different in the video/single mix, as well as the double key change. I'm so accustomed to the album version with the second dance break section which she used at the 2000 VMAs.

    What videos of hers are still missing/blocked?

    As far as I'm aware, nothing is blocked anymore (a miracle!). As for still missing:
    - Alright
    - Runaway
    - Together Again (Deeper Edit)
    - You
    - Every Time
    - Just a Little While
    - All Nite

    Also the All-Dance Edit of If was on her channel mis-titled as Just a Little While, but instead of renaming it, they just deleted it nn.

  7. Most important for me is the Blackstreet remix of ‘I Get Lonely’ it’s one of the main reasons the song became such a huge hit and it’s literally been erased from the internet
  8. I Get Lonely is such an underrated Janet single.
  9. I like the song but it was a hit chiefly because it was released in the wake of the huge success of 'Together Again'. Like most of the other Velvet Rope singles, it never sounded like a surefire hit.
  10. Finally! Good to see at the very least her YouTube channel is getting sorted. Someone with her videography, deserved so much better.

    I appreciate that they re-released most of her albums (except Damita Jo which I need) on vinyl recently, but her discography basically being left to rot in the wind is so disheartening. It's one thing that media blackballed her for years, but to effectively be complacent within that process by letting her material languish without note is just baffling. One job. ONE JOB. How do you mess that up?!
