This is a fair point! I'd probably feel the same.phoenix98 wrote:It's juvenile of me, but I also think I'd see openness (at least somewhat) as a reflection on myself and what I do (or don't) offer. Logically, I realize that a partner seeking out some variety/new sexual experiences is not an indication of any sort of inferiority on my part...but I suspect it'd still tap into some of those feelings anyway.

Well, when I did my 2012 countdown of my favourite albums of all-time, his debut album was in the Top 10. That was a long time ago, and it'd be a tough ask for that same album to make my current Top 100, but pretty much every song on his first album + the first two singles from his sophomore effort would be filed under 'winners' in my book.phoenix98 wrote:Ah, thanks! Now that's a name I haven't heard in a while. I actually picked up his (band's) first album back in the day. Did any of his original offerings do anything for you?

"Honey" could never!phoenix98 wrote:• Ah, "If." SUCH the perfect soundtrack for my libidinous, sexually-deprived teenage self. This jam has lines that make even Madonna's "Erotica" sound tame: "your smooth and shiny feels so good against my lips, sugar..."
I have so much love for "If"! If only I could express it all! Such an epic song.
Yeah, "This Time" hit #1 here in October 2012, so there was definitely a time when I loved it. I will say its production has always been its biggest selling point. There will be more to say at a more appropriate time, but I'm glad to hear you're revisiting Janet's catalogue!phoenix98 wrote:• Inspired by your earlier insinuation of what may come in 6-8 weeks, I've gone through Control - janet. over the past couple days, and when I got to "This Time", I was suddenly flooded with flashbacks of you stanning for it at some point. It always seemed like one of that album's few missteps to me, and that feeling didn't change much after my latest listen. I'm rarely on-board with 7-minute-songs, and the chorus/hook still strikes me as weak/forgettable by her standards (especially sequenced right after the likes of "You Want This" and "If.")
Well, that is the JD-present version I'm charting, but I've decided to stop crediting featured acts who add nothing to the song. Young Thug on "Havana" was my breaking point actually.phoenix98 wrote:• At first I'm like "A JD-free version of 'Sweetheart'? Sign. Me. UP!" - but apparently it's already in my library!
Thanks, Paul!phoenix98 wrote:Yet another chart that sounds good at any volume, Akini!
