Best Janet Jackson Songs


The Top Ten

1 Control
2 Escapade

My mom used to play this song all the time, and I absolutely love it!

3 That's the Way Love Goes
4 Rhythm Nation

Has a good message in it, great song and excellent choreography - RaeMarie

5 Love Will Never Do (Without You)

One of the purest examples of perfectly crafted PURE POP songs of all time! Originally intended to be a male / female duet, this works so wonderful due to Janet's delivery of the lyrics and showing strong vocals both high and low range. The arrangement and layered vocals add to the infectious chorus. Great example of a brilliant song.

6 Together Again
7 Nasty
8 Black Cat

If not her best song, it's definitely her most badass! - theOpinionatedOne

9 If

Hands down, my favorite Janet song ever. The choreography is timeless and I just love everything about it.

11 Feedback

While most all of Janet's songs stand on their own, were huge hits and have stood the test of time in relevance, Feedback if it were to have been recorded and released during her prime years prior to the Super Bowl fiasco, would have become one of her top 5 hits of all time. That the song cracked the top 20 when radio had all but abandoned playing her, showed how strong the song actually was.
