This is without a doubt my favourite song by her. It brings me to tears

Together Again and Throb are the only Janet Jackson singles I've ever bought.

Brilliant song, one of my favourites from her.

One of her best! This was the happiest song on The Velvet Rope.

Her biggest hit and the song that turned me into a huge fan, but unfortunately overplay has made me hate it quite a bit. Still love the video but like other said she have so much better songs.

Sorry, the original post was too basic so I've added the video,

I really liked this when it came out (although not instantly). Then a few years later, when I became the fan I am today, it was fun playing it again but like many of you, thought it was a bit overrated so shunned it in favour of her other songs. But after my grandmother died, I totally reconnected with the song and now, I don't care whether or not it is overrated (it isn't IMO), I love it.

The video alone is AMAZING. I feel like I am watching her on the "Natural Geographic" discovery channel... So picturesque..

Love this.
Unlike other things that wither, she preserves. She’s a constant in a world of relentless flux. She’s a beacon of immortality. Bitch, she’s Madonna.

Same. It actually makes me emotional. So sensual and lovely. I wish it was at least a bonus track.

Great song, although it always bothered me how similar it sounds to Full House opening theme :lol:

The music video is simply beautiful.

I heard it sounds like a theme from Sonic. Is that what you're referring to?

I think it sampled the Sonic one.

Wow she got the chorus from this. Did she even credit Sega Genesis for the sample?

It's been 20 years since this masterpiece was released. I still love it and it still sounds so timeless. I love how Janet could make a sad situation and make a happy song out of it. It's definitely an uplifting anthem and the video is spectacular. I just wish there a HD version of it.

Can we talk about how this song sounds AMAZING in all of its incarnations and arrangements? There are three completely different songs with a variety of musical and melodic adaptions in the original, Deeper and DJ Premier remixes and they're all fantastic. A SONG.
