Today’s Friday Break is about Smiling. I just woke up this morning with this idea stuck in my head: today, I’ma make you smile!
So help me out here! Janet Jackson! Can’t go wrong with the classics! Janet Jackson singing and dancing. And Smiliiiiing! Thank you for this beautiful week, for your great comments, I hope you have the most amazing weekend ever! Enjoy Janet Jackson’s Runaway and Together Again right after the jump!
Don’t you just want to be nice all day long? All life long? Just be nice, smile the days away! Written and released in 1995, Runaway made Janet the first female artist to debut in Billboard’s top 100 in the first five positions. While there isn’t much to say about the song, which is lovely altogether, the video shows Janet traveling the world and was included in a production documentary. (you can find the making of here, I wouldn’t include it because you know how much I dislike spoilers, so if you want to see the magic behind Runaway, it’s up to you, just a click away!)
So now let’s go Together Again. It’s from her sixth album, The Velvet Rope, 1997. Though it’s a tribute for a friend of Janet’s (who just died from AIDS), the song was rearranged into a dance tune; also two versions of the video were made available. The one included in this Friday Break is the funny, bright one. The one that’s really bringing her friend from her memory is a much slower version, more cinematic and it’s also a click away! (you can watch it here). Once again: let’s smile the days away!
