Friday Fun: Take A Five-Minute Break With Janet Jackson


It was No. 1 in the middle of January 20 years ago, but damn if Janet Jackson’s “Love Will Never Do (Without You)” doesn’t sound tailor-made for every single summertime, so get near a window and turn up your speakers. (This post brought to you in part by the news that Rhythm Nation 1814—Jackson’s utterly crucial 1989 album on which this song, and at least five other all-time killer singles, first appeared—is $5 at Amazon MP3, but mostly by the fact that this track sounds like falling in love, or at least into a five-minute infatuation.)
