  1. Question. Does anyone know who the interviewer is? I’ve been wondering ever since I first got the single and listened to this as an audio track only. She says “You know, being an actor!” which made me wonder if it was someone relatively well known. I’ve only just discovered the video clip today and was hoping he might have been shown in a quick cutaway, but evidently not. I’ve tried looking on Wiki and Discogs hoping there might be some information in the credits as there was nothing on the single itself, but have come up with nothing, so I was hoping someone here might know. It’s be
  2. The Rhythm Nation album was a strange beast here in Australia. The chart peaks for the singles were all over the place: Miss You Much - 12 Rhythm Nation - 56 Escapade - 25 Come Back To Me - 79 Black Cat - 6 Love Will Never Do - 14 State of the World - 94 Alright didn’t chart here until it was released as a single in the Design of a Decade era, and even then only peaked at 100. For ages I thought it was perhaps not released as a single here back in 1990 - I certainly don’t remember it getting the attention that any of the other singles received -
  3. Yeah I was on Janet Xone back in 2001-2004 or thereabouts but I don’t think I used my own name back then. Must be a different person
  4. Not sure... I’m certainly *a* David, but I don’t know if I’m *the* David you’re thinking of.
  5. Mine will probably always be the cover of WHYDFML by Sharon Jones (RIP) and The Dap-Kings but I’m also quite fond of the Pollyseed’s cover of Funny How Time Flies (featuring Robert Glasper).
  6. The cafe I’m getting breakfast at just now was playing Any Time, Any Place. Thankfully it didn’t encourage people to start fornicating
  7. Could probably throw in “Better Herbie Hancock sample” too. I’d say All Nite wins on each category. It wouldn’t even be in my top 20 favourite Janet songs, but then So Excited wouldn’t feature in my top 50.
  8. And they’ve followed it up with Escapade.
  9. Miss You Much is playing on the radio right now.
  10. Did we know this?? If this is old news please move along haha. I knew the song had been offered to and passed on by Kylie Minogue, but had never heard of it being written for Janet. https://www.officialcharts.com/chart-news/britney-spears-toxic-was-originally-meant-for-janet-jackson-says-songwriter-cathy-dennis__31169/
  11. Hard to say. Unbreakable is definitely her best since The Velvet Rope, and the fact it more or less got rid of the interludes (except for just the one) works in its favour, but I think 20+ years of listening, history and sentiment won’t allow me to place it above TVR.
  12. FYI, here in Australia the album is #48 on the main album chart and #7 on R&B albums.
  13. Take Care (“At home, I’m so alone, I’m wishing you were here...”) I Get Lonely (“I get so lonely, can’t let just anybody hold me...”) And I think a reworked version of outtake Clap Your Hands (called Wash Your Hands) is necessary for these times.
  14. So there back in the mid 2000s to early 2010s there was a very popular weekly music quiz show here in Australia called Spicks and Specks. It finished up in 2012/13 but last year the core cast returned to film four special episodes to air throughout 2020. Tonight they aired a 1990s themed special. One of the games had local comedians come out dressed in the touring costumes (or replicas of) of popular artists and the teams had to guess the artist. Anyway a comedian called Denise Scott who is in her mid 60s came out dressed as Janet from the opening part of the Janet tour. Gotta say they di
