    • Planet Janet Rules   07/07/2015

      General Rules for Planet Janet Welcome to Planet Janet! The main objective of this board is to express your love for Janet, your opinions, and to interact with an important segment of the Janet fandom.  To enjoy your experience here, below are general rules and guidelines to make your experience here be successful: The N Word Please be aware that the N word is going to be filtered on this forum. Most importantly, this word is not acceptable on this forum in any form; therefore, if it is used again by ANY member on here, it will result in an immediate and permanent ban. Consider this the first, only, and last warning regarding this. Music Download | Copyright Infringement Illegal download links to music from any artist are not permissible to be posted on this forum at any time. If you have posted an illegal download link, you must take it down immediately. Failure to remove the links, and/or subsequent, repeated offenses will result in disciplinary action up to and including a permanent ban from the forum. Fan Threads of Other Artists Generally, we like to keep threads and/or topics about other artists within an Official Artist Thread.  This helps to eliminate clutter and redundancy throughout the forum and allow a one-stop shop to view comments on that particular artist not pertaining to Janet.  If there is HUGE news related to an artist and generates a lot of discussion, it is okay to have a standalone thread on that topic outside of the Official Thread. A good debate is OKAY in the Official Threads of other artists.  Official Threads are not complete sanctuaries of devotion of that particular artist; however, there is a need to be civil with other members.  Please refrain from personal attacks and arguments that devolve into personal attacks. Additionally, do NOT use Janet as means to defend an artist.  This forum is made in her honor, and putting her down to boast your particular artist is prohibited. Exercise good judgment and common sense.  If not, then the moderating team will exercise disciplinary action depending on the egregiousness of the action.  Please utilize this announcement as a first warning. Personal Attacks

      Each member has a warning percentage - most of them are at zero right now but a few have been warned before. Each warning is worth 10%, and once it gets to 100% the member is automatically banned from the forum. 

      Each time a member gets into an argument with another member that includes personal attacks, if it is reported or viewed by a member of the moderating team, each participant in the personal attack will get an increase in their warning percentage.  They will be notified via PM, and, prior to posting again, will receive a receipt acknowledging that warning before they can post again. The Moderating Team will never divulge a member's warn percentages on the forum or to other members.

      What this means is you are now responsible for your own future on this forum. The Moderating Team will not keep asking you to stop and being ignored. Learn to let things go and learn to moderate yourself before posting; if you end up banned it will be your own fault. Personal attacks and include attacks on one’s race, age, religious creed, color, gender, national origin, physical, mental or visual disability, medical condition, ancestry, marital and military status, pregnancy or sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and general physical appearance/looks. Depending on the nature of the personal attack there will be corrective action up and including permanent banning. If you have any inquiries about your warning percentage, feel free to PM a mod for an answer. If you need any clarification on the rules, feel free to reach out to The Moderating Team.

"Take Me Away" - Pop radio potential?

16 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

The more I listen to this song, the more I fall in love with it.  It's such an ear worm.  It's definitely one of the more pop radio-friendly tracks on the album. Who knows if pop radio will even play Janet at this point, but for some reason I can just imagine this potentially catching on and becoming at least a top 40 or top 20 mainstream hit.  It's nostalgic while still sounding very current.  Thoughts?

Same here! I absolutely love this song and when the guitar starts playing i'm in a state of eternal bliss. Like i'm drifting on air free from everything

I love "We Gone B Alright" I kinda think she should just go really left on radio. No Sleep worked because it went to urban. Now pop radio is an entirely different beast. I hear "No Sleep" played a lot

I think "Take Me Away" would be great for Pop and I think going left for Pop would actually be releasing "The Great Forever"!  The beat and melody change is genius on "The Great Forever" and I think with an amazing video it would help the song pick up on radio. You can't escape that bass and synthesizer and the "Waaaa"!   I also think "Well Traveled" and "Night" might have a chance obviously with "Dammn Baby" also being released.  

But as far as Pop "Take Me Away" would be the best choice. The chorus and ending to "Take Me Away" is so magical and it's classic Janet.  

Janet should remix the song and call on Stevie Nicks to add her spin on it with her background vocals.

I think y'all need to give up on this radio nonsense and enjoy the album/music/tour

 

Pop Radio doesn't pay dust to anyone in Janet's age demographic.

TMA is an amazing track.. One of the first that hit me on first listen

Yeah we need to stop wondering if Pop radio will pick up Janet as we want them to. It's not going to happen.  It really is about enjoying the album the tour and hopefully more videos and specials to come!

I definitely agree that it's highly unlikely that pop radio will pick up a janet single at this point.  And I'm with the rest of you - I don't even care.  I'm loving this album so much that it doesn't really matter.  However, every time I hear this song it just crosses my mind that IF a song on this album were to get some traction, this would be the one.

Don't care if it becomes a hit or not, but I'd love to see a music video for it.

"Take Me Away" is great, but pop radio isn't going to touch any of Janet's music. They should, but they won't. I'd love to be wrong and surprised though. I'd love for Hot AC and AC to give it some love though, she'd have more success there.

This song demonstrates Janet's versatility and also her influences.

I could totally hear Fleetwood Mac doing this song. Stevie Nicks is everything.

Janet rocks the fuck out on this song and it deserves to be a number 1 pop song!
