Andy Briones said...

Huwow, birthday pala ni missus on the 16th? Happee beerday! You guys are meant for each other my boy — it's written in the stars! :P

My favorite Janet song is "Got 'Til It's Gone" from Velvet Rope. I like the video too! And the hair, man! The hair! Check it out; she had on a 'fro. Ehehe.

prinsesamusang said...

eto na nagmamadali na ko sa pagsali LOL ang paborito kong kanta ni janet jackson ay yung 'again'. sa totoo lang gustong-gusto ko talaga ang emotions sa kanta na yun, maganda yung lyrics. basta gusto ko ang confusion sa kanta na yun!

at happy birthday to your wifey! ang bongga ng paunang celebration ah!

Raft3r said...

andy briones, That video kills! Sa London bar ang setup non, eh.

prinsesamusang, Bilis ah! Panalo!

grace castro said...

dami kong gustong janet songs but my favorite is "All For You".

Raft3r said...

grace castro, Cute sya sa video non! Hehe

Millet said...

"Together Again"

Happy birthday, see u soon!

Raft3r said...

millet, That single sold 6 million copies worldwide!

Judayski said...

Kumusta naman wherever I looked, may invite ka sa contest na ito, hahaha!

Well, admittedly, hindi ko alam lahat ng kanta ni JJ. Pero EVERYTIME never fails to make me tear. Naks, may ganun? Eh kasi naman relate na relate. :)

Pa-abstain na lang ako sa contest na ito, napakinggan ko na yung CD mo, remember?

Raft3r said...

judayski, Astig ang video ng Everytime. Underwater pa! Galing!

Curbside Puppet said...

ako? it should be i get so lonely from her velvet rope album. why? kasi kahit pakinggan mo siya ngayon, very current pa rin ang tinig.
its a classic old school rnb tune. midtempo, very catchy. it is quite different from the usual janet jackson songs and is really very soulful.
the music video? the best! very smooth and swagger. she was very sexy in the mtv. not really showing tons of skin. very sophisticated and mature. ganda pa ng production design.
a sweet and angelic voice to an old-school, bass-thumping beat in a classic and very cool music video.
ano pa bang hahanapin mo? I Get So Lonely tops it off!!!!

Raft3r said...

curbside puppet, That's my favorite Janet song of all time. =)

bena said...

at nagpa-contest ka naman! game! ;)

Una, im not really a super fan of janet j but i like her upbeat songs.. disclaimer lang.. hehehe.. second, all time favorite ko na song niya is 'Someone To Call My Lover'.. Cool ko sya pakinggan kc di maingay ung beat and i so can relate to the lyrics.. (you know why when you go read back the lyrics o baka memorize mo na kaya kantahin mo nalang.) hehehe.. Lastly, HAPPY BIRTHDAY sa wifey mo! Naksh! Dapat magpaparty ka ng bonggang-bongga ha at wag ako kalimutan.. aasahan ko na ipapa-LBC mo yung pagkain dito sa Cebu.. hihihi.. at pahabol nga pala, magaling si ate janet sumayaw.. napaparampa este napapaindak talaga ako.. toinx! hihihi..

vi-a-v! ;)

Raft3r said...

bena, Someone To Call My Lover samples Ventura Highway. Maganda sya pakinggan when driving. Hehe

len said...

I like Janet's "Everytime". It's a nice love song.

When I hear it, it reminds me to always see the world in a rose-colored glass. :p

Extend my birthday greetings to your wifey! nyahaha

Raft3r said...

len, Love song talaga pinili. Hehe. I love the video, though.

Curbside Puppet said...

true, someone to call my lover samples ventura highway the same way got till its gone does it for big yellow taxi (or cab). may ibang songs pa na ganyan din from janet. that song of hers that says "i betcha think this song is about you" also comes from a different older song and she also did her brother's song. which song? i forgot.

Raft3r said...

curbside puppet, Her producers love to sample. Sina Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. She did not remake any of Michael's songs. Pareho lang ng title: Rock With U. =)

Ganns said...

I have CD singles of "Together Again" and "I Get Lonely," but my favorite Janet Jackson song is "Love Will Never Do (Without You)." For me, that's one of the greatest pop songs ever written. Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis are geniuses bar none.

Raft3r said...

ganns, Love Will Never Do (Without You) is off the hook. Pati ang video nya. I am in love with that song. Sobrang sexy ni Janet sa video! Hehe

Cathy said...

My favorite Janet song is "Twenty Foreplay." It's so damn sexy! Need I say more?

Raft3r said...

cathy, Whoa. Interesting choice from such a nice lady gaya mo. Hehe. I like that song, too. Have you seen the video?

Andy Briones said...

Ganadong-ganado at ang bilis mag-reply ni Raft3 sa mga comments ah. Detailed commentaries at ang daming alam kay Missus, ehehe. :P

Can I change my answer? "Love Will Never Do (Without You)" na lang favorite Janet song ko, tapos "Got 'Til It's Gone" yung favorite Janet music video ko.

The Scud said...

putik! wala akong maisip. i was more into opm bands in the 90s. haha. pero i remember liking runaway. ang video ata nun is nasa apartment sya at nilakbay ang mundo.

aba sa 16th pala si wifey. one day apart lang. :p

Raft3r said...

andy briones, Hehe. Ganyan talaga pag inspired. Nyahaha. Sige. Pwede magpalit. Malakas kas sakin, eh. Hehe

the scud, Runaway. Around the world in 3 minutes. Hehe. That's a song about her fans.

Marie Angela said...

Partner 3 songs niya gusto ko, eh...Anytime Anyplace and Come back to me. =) Ang pinaka-love ko..."That's the way love goes" ---> the bomb!

Raft3r said...

marie angela, Partner! Anytime, Anyplace - theme song ko yan. Kahit san, game! Hehe. Come back to me - video shot in Paris. Panalo ang kantang yan. That's the way love goes - her biggest HIT so far. At extra pa si J-Lo sa video. Hehe

bisaja said...

I'm not really a fan of Janet Jackson, but I love some of her songs. I remember singing to "Escapade", "Let's Wait Awhile", "Together Again", "Again" and "Everytime". Tapos number 1 song ang "If" nya sa intrumarals namin. I think I was in 7th grade then. Hahaha!

Then there's "Runaway", na ang entrance is parang tono ng "Escapade", na sinaway namin sa isang school culminating activity when i was in 4th grade. O diba, bongga! Astig pa nung dance steps ng "Escapade" nya. May pa-clap clap pa. Do you remember the dance step, or am I that old. Hahahaha!

Raft3r said...

bisaja, Hehe. Baka nga magkasing-edad tayo, eh. Escapade - 80's na 80's. Hehe

sheila said...

The sexy "That's the Way Love Goes"! but I also like "Come Back to Me" if you want to ask my #2 song :)

Happy Birthday!!

Beth said...

I'm not a big fan of your missus but I admire her very beautiful voice. So meaning, wala akong masyadong alam sa mga songs niya.

But I really love 'EVERY TIME'. I love the lyrics. Esp this part:

Every time your love is near
And every time I’m filled with fear
’cause every time I see your face
Could it be that this will be the one that lasts
The fear does start to erase every time
Oh could it be that this will be the one that lasts.

Sorry ha? Baduy ko no? e kasi aside from Again at Escapade, un lang na-remember ko e. :)

Happy Bday to your missus! Sna alam niyang missus mo siya! :) Ang sweet mo namang hubby! :)

Raft3r said...

shiela, Sexy. Sexy. Sexy. Si Janet yon!

beth, Believe me. Alam nya. Hehe

Lawstude said...

That's The Way Love Goes!!!

Justin Lladoc said...

Lahat favorite ko! But if I had to choose it would be Velvet Rope from the Velvet Rope album

prinsesamusang said...

eh online din ako nun eh. kelan ba birthday ni janet exactly?

st_leobinus said...

I have 3 & in no particular order:
Let's Wait a While - only Janet can sing a song that's basically an anthem for abstinence and make it sound cool; That's the Way Love Goes - love the beat, her sexy soothing voice and the video with J Lo in the background(extra!); and Everytime - she was practically naked in the video and she's got a bangin' body...almost turned me straight.

Raft3r said...

lawstude, That song is timeless!

justin lladoc, Unique ang choice mo.

prinsesamusang, Hehe. Sa 16.

st_leobinus, Nyahaha. Almost is the operative term.

eden said...

hmmm..let me think...

isa lang yata ang alam kong song niya, Because Of You, early 1990's yon.. tama ba?

have a nice day, friend!

Liza said...

syempre let's a while no. :) yun lang ang alam ko hehe.

Raft3r said...

eden, Because of love. Pop song na pop song ang dating. Hehe. Tama ka. Early 90's sya.

liza, How could I forget? Tuwang-tuwa ako when you featured Let's wait a while sa blog mo! Kilig! Hehe

pixie27 said...

Mitzi said...

Sali na ako!!! Mine is "Rhythm Nation!". It was the first thing that came to mind. It's my favorite because it brings back memories of my childhood. That time we had both Janet Jackson & Paula Abdul TAPES! and played them on the multipex!!! hahah... but I do like it and.. oh, meron pa pala, ito pala yung favortie ko talga, the ultimate song of the brokenhearted 'AGAIN'... =)-- did i win? :D

ar-dee-see said...

wow, thats a tough one. I'm gonna break the rule and state 2:

"Enjoy" and.... "I want you"

the donG said...

astig! my favorite song by your wife is the song runaway. so cool!

PsycheNurse said...

I don't get it. You have a wife?

I thought your blog's title is "The Deadbeat Club-the adventures of a single guy"

Raft3r said...

jella, Yes. Freebies lang ang katapat. Hehe

hitokirihoshi_kawaii, Dami mong alam ng wika. Idol! Hehe

pixie_27, That song brings back so many memories ano?

mitzi, Dating choreographer ni Janet si Paula. Hehe

ar-dee-see, I want you is so old school. That song's the bomb!

the dong, Both the song and the video rocks!

pscyhe nurse, I dunno. I'm confused myself. Hehe

Andy Briones said...

Did I win? Sana convertible to cash ang prize. :-)

ar-dee-see said...

Just to clarify, I like the old school version, but the one I was mentioning was the track from the Damita Jo album

Raft3r said...

andy briones, Nyahaha. Should I change the rules then?

ar-dee-see, Yeah. That's the one. That song should have been a hit.

Jas said...

song? Miss You Much. Lahat ng elements ng kanta niya, andito

the video for If: it is tres raunchy and the dance sequence mesmerizes (hehe, di ma-ban ng mtrcb), plus features Asia :)

Raft3r said...

jas, Pucha. Panalo talaga ang If video. Galing non. Sobra! Miss you much. Astig naman yun chair dance sequence ni misis don. Hehe

Andy Briones said...

Nag song and dance number pala si Paula Abdul recently sa American Idol. Parang hirap na hirap na siya gumalaw, dala ata ng old age, hehe. Joke.

Puwede ulit magpalit ng sagot? Ehehe. Favorite Janet video ko na lang yung Scream, yung duet niya with Michael Jackson.

Raft3r said...

andy brioes, Most expensive video made ang Scream. Ganda pa ni Janet don! Taob si Michael. Nyahaha

Andy Briones said...

Oo nga, ganda ni Janet dun. At kung palakihan lang ng boobs ang pag-uusapan, kabog si Michael kay Janet. :p

Raft3r said...

andy briones, Nyahaha. Pasaway ka talaga, Andy! Hehe

malatemail said...

Raft3r said...

malatemail, Contest with Gannon ba ire? Hehe

Wendy said...

Hi Raft, happy birthday! Ngayon ba or nung 15?:D Anyway, sorry this is one contest I have to skip. Not a Janet Jackson fan. I best remember her for her boob exposure during the Super Bowl. Sorry, sorry. You're probably gonna hate me for this. Peace!!!

Raft3r said...

wendy, Hate is not in my vocabulary. Hehe. Janet rocks! Everyone knows that.

kikay MD said...

naku naman denoy,madami! i get so lonely and everytime kasi ang sexy ng sound, for some reason i get horny when i listen to those songs, bwahaha...again kasi emote na emote and tangengot ako sa ex ko nun at naging theme song sa kin ng barkada ko yan...at ang walang kamatayang rhythm nation. that was the first time we seriously danced to a jj beat. gabi na kami natatapos ng rehearsals! as in exact steps...then the rest is history and you should know! hay nako ha...talaganag mangulit :-)happy beerday sa inyong mag-asawa uli.

laieesha said...

sorry ngayon lang me join.. been busy!

picking ONE fave Janet song is not fair. There's a lot, but if I have to pick my top 3, it has to be
- Anytime, Anyplace (self-explanatory why.. story of my life bwahaha)
- Let's Wait A While
- Miss You Much

Or how about the entire DESIGN OF A DECADE album? LOVE IT!

Raft3r said...

kikay MD, Baby making songs tawag ni missis dyan. Hehe. Welcome to The Deadbeat Club!

laieesha, Nyahaha. Dami nya kasing astig na songs, eh. Hehe
