Janet Jackson - "Escapade"

While on a road trip to San Francisco, I was flipping around the dial and stumbled upon Janet Jackson's "Escapade." What a great song, I thought, and then I got a little sad. Ms. Jackson's career implosion following the infamous "wardrobe malfunction" at the Super Bowl remains an odd, unfair thing. (Checking her chart history, I realize that she didn't vanish off the face of the earth after the incident, but her pop-royalty standing has never been the same since.) So, I choose to forget that sadness and just enjoy the music, which is probably better anyway.
