Song of the Day: 'Escapade' by Janet Jackson

Surprised to see Janet Jackson touring again -- looks like she's got a new album in the works too; did her ex-husband take her to the cleaners? -- but can't complain about a nod to the "Rhythm Nation." The one time I saw Miss Jackson in concert was in 1990 at the Great Western Forum shortly after packing up my belongings (and my broken heart) in my Volkswagen Rabbit Convertible and moving West. I've always been more of a casual fan -- but something hit me that night, and the waterworks were on from the opening number ("Control") to the title track encore. Luckily the show was so loud and such a spectacle that the friend I went with didn't even notice what a fool I'd been all night!
