Lots of Janet music on last night's Scandal

Recommended Posts

According to Twitter, last night's episode of Scandal featured quite a few Janet songs. I didn't see it. Did anyone watch? Which songs were featured?

Oh wait. Found more info:

"There are three of Scandal’s standard funky music cues in “The People v. Olivia Pope,” and they’re all Janet Jackson songs. First, there’s the ebullient “When I Think of You” from Control, used to drive home the idea that Olivia and Fitz’s post-memorial hookup was more than a drunken, irrational act of grief. The title track from Rhythm Nation drops later, when Olivia is defiantly blowing off the handshake deal she made with the former members of her team, and “Black Cat” comes in when Olivia learns her obstinacy has cost her a cushy office in the West Wing and the faith of the president. Scandal has always leaned heavily on pop music to tell its stories, but “The People” is an unusually extreme case. If not for the tunes from Miss Jackson, there would be almost no connective tissue to link these characters and stories together."

RN is the only song that didn’t fit imo. 

Black Cat matched perfectly with the story and WITOY was a solid choice

Janet is the only artist to have her music played on both grey's anatomy and scandal and shes the only artists to get the whole show scored to her music.  I love shonda for that

The episode, like most of the season, was garbage, but at least Shonda gave me a Janet night.
