some people think it's gross but it's pretty good on toast

Got Til Its Gone was my #1. It is p much everything I love in music wrapped up in one awesome pop song. Plus I think the video factored in although I bet we all kinda voted on videos as well as the songs themselves. This must be the most obvious artist poll yet for that to happen?

I don't dislike a song yet! And this poll is making me think I should revisit Bad, even though I already know I dislike half of it.

Feel like I honestly can't make an obvious guess at what the top 2 will be either, which is refreshing for an ilx poll. Gonna guess at 6 Janet, 4 J5/TJ, 1 Other Jackson solo and 9 Michael.

"got til it's gone" is a great video, but it doesn't cohere as a song for me.

I'm not taken with "Love Will Never Do" either, and, interestingly, like "Miss You Much" it's the only RN single for which Janet gets no songwriting credit.

oh see I think "Miss You Much" is the biznizz

basically all of the stompy non-"Rhythm Nation"esque songs on Rhythm Nation suffer in my eyes because they aren't "Miss You Much" (although there was a remix of "Escapade" that helped me fall in love with it, also "onn annn escapaade, BEHBEH")

have you heard the album version on LWND -- with the Herb Alpert solo? I prefer it!

I have heard the album version. Like I said, I don't detest it anymore but it's not my fave.

I'm going to die of old age before I get to do my depeche mode ballot poll

Dude, you're at #18, and #14 is next! Pity the poor schmoe in the 40s. Maybe Chap will trade his Bowie spot with you.

crut, as one of the youngest ilxors, if you die of old age, all your potential voters will have already shuffled off this mortal coil.

19. The Jackson 5 - ABC (166 points, 7 votes) from ABC, 1970

Jamie_ATP, Thursday, 23 February 2012 21:51 (2 years ago) Permalink

Didn't vote for 'ABC' - I always see it as 'I Want You Back II', only inferior in every way.

Ismael Klata, Thursday, 23 February 2012 21:54 (2 years ago) Permalink

Stranger in Moscow is an okay song (I probably haven't even thought about it since the 90s). How the hell did it end up so high?

Johnny Fever, Thursday, 23 February 2012 22:09 (2 years ago) Permalink

because it's a great song

Whiney vs. (BradNelson), Thursday, 23 February 2012 22:09 (2 years ago) Permalink

There's nothing obviously "Michael Jackson" about it, though. meh.

Johnny Fever, Thursday, 23 February 2012 22:11 (2 years ago) Permalink

I had never even heard "Stranger In Moscow" until MJ died

This feels like the first real challop in this poll (or maybe I'm the one being challopy).

Johnny Fever, Thursday, 23 February 2012 22:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

nah, "Stranger in Moscow" is terrific, made my ballot

Euler, Thursday, 23 February 2012 22:15 (2 years ago) Permalink

It's kind of boring

eh, dude, the rhythm of the song is pretty michael jackson, and the way the rest of the song seems to phase in out of nowhere? way exquisite

Jamie_ATP, Thursday, 23 February 2012 22:31 (2 years ago) Permalink

I only learned to love "The Pleasure Principle" in the last five years, particularly the remix.

Exile in lolville (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Thursday, 23 February 2012 22:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

"pleasure principle" is my favorite janet song that is not "if"

every time i hear it is like hearing it for the first time

Hold on, 'Smooth Criminal' way down here?! Only eight votes out of 27?!

Ismael Klata, Thursday, 23 February 2012 23:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

these polls always throw up at least one incredible song that i'm amazed i've never heard; 'centipede' was it this time.

My reaction to this pair:

Smooth Criminal TOO LOW
Centipede THIS SONG RULES HOW CAN PEOPLE NOT KNOW ABOUT IT

Johnny Fever, Thursday, 23 February 2012 23:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'd never heard of "Centipede" before people started talking about it on the prepoll thread.
