I LOVE "Rivers Of Babylon". My mother used to play it over and over again (together with Brown Girl In The Ring).
It's one of those songs that really reminds me of my childhood.
Also, there used to be those girls in my class that used to perform songs together and this was one of them.
They used to do girl group songs, but when they did this one, one of the macho guys of our class joined in. :lol:

I'm not sure why it took so long for me to check it out actually. I think I've just been too busy recently to keep tabs on new releases. Also, sometimes when I'm stressed out, I don't have the mental bandwidth for new music because what if I come home after a 12-hour work day and try to listen to new songs and they suck? :lol: That wouldn't be much fun.

JakeP wrote:02.(RE) Kylie Minogue - Breathe

Busy season is coming for my entire existence this year. I suspect I'll find a way to survive, but "Breathe" wouldn't be a bad year-end #1 actually. :lol:

I'm presently in the process of switching phones, and I've uploaded all the music from my computer to the new phone. Quite a few of these songs are tracks that aren't on Spotify, so the last two days have seen some returns from songs I haven't heard in ages. Today's chart will be no different.

Ah, "Brown Girl in the Ring" was an ever-present song in my childhood, too! We used to play it in school during our culture class sessions every Tuesday afternoon.

I remember being surprised to learn that Boney M. had international impact. I always thought they were a regional act restricted to the Caribbean. :oops:

10.(12) Kacey Musgraves - Butterflies (Greatest Gainer) - I only checked this out today - I feel like she has a lot better material tbh.

03.(RE) Adele - Skyfall

Even though it was a success, this song deserved so much more attention.

JSparksFan wrote:Yeah, I can be a bit pedantic with language sometimes, and I typically favour British English rules to American English rules, but there are a few exceptions, and I do go back and forth between the two systems depending on what I'm comfortable/agree with. The absence of "u" in American words is my only gripe, but even there, I have to admit that some words look cleaner without the "u" such as "candor" for instance. It's weird because I grew up in an academic system that is British-based (English-wise) but the American influence is more pervasive in non-academia parts of the culture so that makes adhering to the rules complex, but I agree; once the message is not lost, who cares? We're here for a good time, not a rigidly-adherent-to-outdated-English-rules time.
I'm all for you creating a new, unique hybrid of the two: Akinglish! That disconnect you mentioned between using British English in the classroom/academic settings, but seeing American English everywhere outside the classroom, really adds a whole 'nother layer to the struggle of keeping all the rules straight!

JSparksFan wrote:Oh my! :o Why did I think "Trust a Try" was a single? It definitely sounds like one, and it is strange that I'm so familiar with it despite not having heard All for You in full (yet). Hmm...what a way to throw away a potential chart-topper.
Ah, turns out you were onto something there! Apparently "Trust A Try" was in consideration to be a single (along with "Come On Get Up", which eventually got a very limited release in Japan.) Wikipedia links to this old interview with MTV:

MTV: Your fans have a lot of strong feelings about everything, from what the set list should be to the next single. They did an informal poll on your Web site and they thought the next singles should be "Come On Get Up" and "Trust a Try." Do you have any idea what the next single will be?

Janet: There will be two. "Come On Get Up" and "Son of a Gun." But I'll get around to "Trust a Try," because I love that song.


JSparksFan wrote:What I should be punishing it for is that awful video, but the song has grown on me. I get why so many people love it.
:lol:

I mean, there's a cuteness to it...but it's not at ALL what I envisioned/hoped for that song. I'm especially protective of that track, since I love it so much, so it probably would've been tough for any video to truly do it justice in my eyes (and what she actually gave us doesn't even come close.) **Sigh**

• Thrilled to see you still holding "Velvet Rope" in high regard as we (hopefully) inch ever closer to you starting that certain special something! This track really resonated with me as a gay teen when I was first delving into Janet's catalog, and it still makes quite the impression today. It's as relevant/topical as ever too...
• It might not be on quite the same level as "If," but "Rope Burn" is definitely among Janet's catchiest smutty songs ;) The whole chorus (well, the whole track, really) give such satisfying shivers.
• I don't have any strong feelings one way or the other about "Can't Be Stopped," but the whole "hidden track" concept is a fun relic of the days of physical music mediums and a great nostalgia vehicle for my CD-consuming youth! "Whoops Now" is probably one of the few examples to ever become a big chart hit (albeit only overseas.)

Yet another plush chart, Akini! :D

Well, I certainly like "Breathe" more than "Dancing" and "Stop Me from Falling" so let's see what happens. :lol:

SummerPeur wrote:10.(12) Kacey Musgraves - Butterflies (Greatest Gainer) - I only checked this out today - I feel like she has a lot better material tbh.
She does have better material, but the song is a big grower. I definitely encourage you to revisit it.

SummerPeur wrote:03.(RE) Adele - Skyfall

In revisiting "Skyfall", I was rather surprised to hear how epic the instrumental is. Adele does melodrama well, and now that I'm a few years removed from the song's premiere, I can say that it definitely deserved to be a bigger hit.

And novels only add to the drama because there's a mix of fantastic British and American authors in my library, and most of what I've retained about grammar and English rules in general I would have learned through reading storybooks.

So after promising to get around to it, she never got around to it. Janet needs to work on her follow through, to be honest. :cry:

Yeah, the video doesn't match the tone of the song at all.

"Velvet Rope" was definitely a big discovery for me. The hook is immaculate.

phoenix98 wrote:• It might not be on quite the same level as "If," but "Rope Burn" is definitely among Janet's catchiest smutty songs ;) The whole chorus (well, the whole track, really) give such satisfying shivers.
It was definitely a stand-out on my first run-through of the album.

I like the lyrics on "Can't Be Stopped". "Whoops Now" was a bit of a quiet storm; I wasn't expecting to enjoy it much when the song started.

Love Tried To Welcome Me by Madonna is such a beautiful song.

Encore Un Soir is one of my most played songs by Celine Dion.

If and Velvet Rope both epic in their own way by Janet.

I'm Your Baby Tonight (European version) is one of my all time Whitney favorites.

It’s not Janet’s fault that ‘Trust a Try’ didn’t get released. Virgin cut the era short after paying Mariah out of her contract.

Everything you wrote, I either agree with, or it applies to me as well. :lol:

Oh, really? I can believe that, though, and if I were Virgin, I'd have gone for the contract buyout out after Glitter, too.

I hope you like the ‘All For You’ album. Nearly every song on there is in my top 50 Janet songs.
By the way, will you be requiring a list of unreleased Janet songs for your upcoming project?

I just listened to All for You, and I enjoyed it. It's probably the Janet album I went into with the greatest familiarity.

I would appreciate that! <3

Happy to see China Love and Truth (my #1 album track) in there, although no When We Oooo?

But Love Scene? One of my least favourite Janet songs!

Some of her most famous miscellaneous tracks:

You Need Me (1989) the original concept for the follow-up to Control was the Jackson family, and this track is all about that. Janet decided against the idea because she was trying to distance herself from the family name professionally, and instead opted for social issues
Skin Game (1989) unreleased from RN1814
Work (1989) unreleased from RN1814
One More Chance (1993) B-side to 'If', a cover of a Randy Jackson song
And On And On (1994) B-side to 'Any Time, Any Place', performed well on US airplay
70s Love Groove (1994) appeared on 'janet. remixed', along with And On And On
Accept Me (1997) B-side to 'Every Time'
God's Stepchild Japanese bonus track for 'The Velvet Rope', appeared on 'Down in The Delta' soundtrack
The Beat of Black Wings (1999) a Joni Mitchell cover which was supposed to appear on a tribute CD
Ask For More (1999) a song recorded for Pepsi
Who (2001) 'All For You' bonus track in Japan
Love Me (2004) unreleased demo from 'Damita Jo', which many fans think should have been the lead single
Could This Be Love (2004) unreleased track from 'Damita Jo', supposedly pulled for sounding too much like Usher
I'm Here (2004) Japanese bonus track on 'Damita Jo'
Put Your Hands On (2004) Japanese bonus track on 'Damita Jo' - it won the Miscellaneous Janet Songs survivor on here a few years ago

But Love Scene? One of my least favourite Janet songs!
I actually like "When We Oooo", but yesterday was a tough day. It'll probably debut sometime this weekend, or early next week.

Aw, "Love Scene" made me blush, but I loved how sensuous it was.

biscuits wrote:Some of her most famous miscellaneous tracks:

You Need Me (1989) the original concept for the follow-up to Control was the Jackson family, and this track is all about that. Janet decided against the idea because she was trying to distance herself from the family name professionally, and instead opted for social issues
Skin Game (1989) unreleased from RN1814
Work (1989) unreleased from RN1814
One More Chance (1993) B-side to 'If', a cover of a Randy Jackson song
And On And On (1994) B-side to 'Any Time, Any Place', performed well on US airplay
70s Love Groove (1994) appeared on 'janet. remixed', along with And On And On
Accept Me (1997) B-side to 'Every Time'
God's Stepchild Japanese bonus track for 'The Velvet Rope', appeared on 'Down in The Delta' soundtrack
The Beat of Black Wings (1999) a Joni Mitchell cover which was supposed to appear on a tribute CD
Ask For More (1999) a song recorded for Pepsi
Who (2001) 'All For You' bonus track in Japan
Love Me (2004) unreleased demo from 'Damita Jo', which many fans think should have been the lead single
