    Yes and no. In each round there are some that I don’t know well or don’t remember anymore that I listen to again.

    In this round there are some that do ring a bell but I don’t remember them too well to give a correct voting.

          • Would You Mind (2001) - this is by far Janet's most erotic, and most divisive track. I'm sure it'll get 1 point from some, but perhaps 10 from others. As stated, this song is lyrically and even musically the most explicit thing she's recorded
          • You (1998) - on the flipside, this is one of her most introspective tracks all about reflecting on yourself and your actions. It's always been rumoured to be about Michael, but she insists it's about herself. I
          • You Ain't Right (2001) - this is a funky uptempo about the betrayal of a friend
          • You Can Be Mine (1986) - this one is on 'Control' but has elements of those first two albums
          • You Need Me (1989) - originally, the follow-up to 'Control' was to be an album named 'Secrets' which would reveal all about the Jackson family. Thankfully the concept was quickly scrapped, but this one track from that concept remains - it has the Rhythm Nation sound but the lyrics are nothing similar to the final album
          • You Want This (1994) - this is one of the final singles which still contained elements of new-jack swing
          • You'll Never Find (A Love Like Mine) (1982) - early 80s pop/disco song, similar to other songs from that era
          • Young Love (1982) - and to finish off the standard voting list is actually her debut single! It's a punchy pop song and was a minor hit
          • Son of a Gun (feat. Diddy, Missy Elliott and Carly Simon) (P. Diddy Remix) (2001) - P. Diddy remixed the already remixed 'Son of a Gun' and this was somewhat promoted. It's actually the only one on her official YouTube channel
          • The Best Things in Life are Free (with Luther Vandross) (1995 K-Klass remix) - and finally, we've talked about this already. This 1995 remix by K-Klass (Bobby Brown - Two Can Play That Game) helped this song become a top 10 hit for the second time in the UK. It's similar to the popular 1992 remix, but leans more on the dance side rather than pop

          • 10 Would You Mind (2001) (genius!)
            9 You (1998)
            9 You Ain't Right (2001)
            1 You Can Be Mine (1986) (the only dud on the album)
            1 You Need Me (1989) (so glad this was cut, the lyrics are appalling)
            5 You Want This (1994)
            10 You'll Never Find (A Love Like Mine) (1982)
            10 Young Love (1982) (love this! She should be proud this was her first single)
            4 Son of a Gun (feat. Diddy, Missy Elliott and Carly Simon) (Diddy Remix) (2001) (It's not completely awful, but I'm mad it's uploaded on YouTube but the regular video isn't)
            10 The Best Things in Life are Free (with Luther Vandross) (1995 K-Klass remix) (my favourite version of this song!)

                  • so this is the last round of this phase, isnt it?
                    Yesterday I created a Janet spotify playlist with all songs I rated 8+ but it was hard! Many missing songs, Feedback album is not there, only the single for the song!

                    so not only her youtube channel is messy but also spotify... I feel she is losing opportunities there, is it because of copyright issues? Like different companies owning her material so she cannot showcase all her body of work properly?

                    Ill vote tonight! IT was a fantastic travel through her music, I liked this alphabetical journey. And Ready for next phase!

                      It’s a total mess. But actually, I’m pretty sure she owns all of her music, so there is no excuse. I could be wrong though.

                      I really hope there is a plan to fix all her platforms in time for the documentary. One of the biggest missed opportunities would be if old and new fans want to explore her music after the documentary but they simply can’t because it’s not there.

                      By the way, I realised a couple of rounds ago that we’ve actually just completed the second ever discography rate, after your Mariah one. It wasn’t in my thoughts that’s what we were doing but that is effectively what’s happened here!

                                Yesterday I created a Janet spotify playlist with all songs I rated 8+ but it was hard! Many missing songs, Feedback album is not there, only the single for the song!

                                so not only her youtube channel is messy but also spotify... I feel she is losing opportunities there, is it because of copyright issues? Like different companies owning her material so she cannot showcase all her body of work properly?

                                Ill vote tonight! IT was a fantastic travel through her music, I liked this alphabetical journey. And Ready for next phase!
                                same, i had a look through and counted all my ten's and i gave this score 15 times.
                                have loved this alphabet journey, what a great survivor and can't believe this is the last round. would love to do it for some more of my fave artists
                                what's going on?

                                • This isn’t the final final round by the way, just the final round of this stage before songs start getting eliminated.

                                    I really hope there is a plan to fix all her platforms in time for the documentary. One of the biggest missed opportunities would be if old and new fans want to explore her music after the documentary but they simply cant because its not there.

                                    By the way, I realised a couple of rounds ago that we’ve actually just completed the second ever discography rate, after your Mariah one. It wasnt in my thoughts thats what we were doing but that is effectively whats happened here!
                                    I checked and investigated a little bit, and Discipline is her only album missing, so it may have something to do with Island. Shame on that as I cannot have Rock With U in my playlist!

                                    Cool that you built this discography rate It was actually bm08 idea, I just supported him with the tracking file and the visuals! How come bm08 you are not voting here? I may say you are not a fan but for sure you must enjoy some of Janets finest moments?

                                    After finishing this set and revisiting some rates from previous rounds, my average was 7.21. Quite high!
