July 26
a parody of "Together Again" by Janet Jackson
Originally written in 2009, I finally decided to record it today in 2015. It's a personal favorite among Janet's song, but the hair in her music video inspired the parody.

Song Parody Fragments:

"Rhythm Nation"
Better Lyrics:
This is a mess
Still struggling, no justice
Despite cries for help
More endless violence
'Nother civil war?
Charleston church massacre
White killer, racist land
Despite our prayers, we're wronged

People in the USA
Are we goin' back to the old way of life?
We are a part of a divided nation
Segregated Black & White
Justice slumbers, where the Reb Flag flies
Hope dies
We are a part of a divided nation, Y'all
Original Lyrics:
This is a test
No struggle, no progress
Lend a hand to help
Your brother do his best
Things are getting worse
We have to make them better
It's time to give a damn
Let's work together, come on

People of the world today
Are we looking for a better way of life
We are a part of the rhythm nation
People of the world unite
Strength in numbers we can get it right
One time
We are a part of the rhythm nation
Submitted by: Robert D. Arndt Jr.

This rhythm makes me hot

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Son Of A Gun"
The Funny Lyrics:
I bet you think this song is about you... Don't you?
Why They're Funny:
Janet says that she's not taking pock shots at her ex-husband. I think that this is a 'get revenge on the ex-husband' thing.
Submitted by: Celeste
The Funny Lyrics:
Ooh, didn't quite hit the note, that wasn't such a good time.
Why They're Funny:
This line, spoken near the end, might be an ad-lib as she was recording the song (possibly fourth-wall breakage). I just think it's kinda funny (for lack of a better word) when singers do that sorta thing.
Submitted by: Cassandra

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"Someone To Call My Lover"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
Ay ay Ay ay Ay ay Ay ay (repeat 4 times)
Why They're Repetitive:
catchy for sure, but saying Ay Ay Ay all the time is reason enough why she hasn't got a lover
Submitted by: Alex
"Son of a Gun"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
I bet you think this song is aobut you?
Don't you?
Why They're Repetitive:
Janet your husband dumped you. Get over it!
Submitted by: Celeste
There are additional repetitive lyrics available.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Come Back To Me"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
All my life I've waited to see your smile again.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Taken literally, this suggests that even as a very small child, she had already seen your smile and was waiting to see it again.
Submitted by: Michael S.
"Velvet Rope"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Come with me inside
Inside my velvet rope
Why They're Nonsensical:
Unless 'Velvet Rope' happens to be a car, club or any other enterable object, I don't think I need to explain myself in my suggestion as to why these lyrics are nonsense. Or maybe this is a really huge rope, in fact so huge that each fiber is recognizable, therefore one is able to see the individual threads and somehow clamber in between each?
Submitted by: Devil Jones
There are additional nonsensical lyrics available.

Insincere Song Lyrics:

The Insincere Lyrics:
All you nasty boys
don't mean a thing to me
Why They're Insincere:
Tell that to Rene Elizando.
Submitted by: Celeste
"Son Of A Gun"
The Insincere Lyrics:
Hoo hoo, son of a gun,
greedy, greedy, greedy man.
Why They're Insincere:
Okay. I can understand the whole 'revenge of the ex' angle that this song has going but I know hostility when I hear it and Janet sounds as if she has a lot of il-feelings towards her ex. You don't write a vengeful and hateful song about someone and then deny about who its about.
Submitted by: Celeste
There are additional insincere lyrics available.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Twenty foreplay"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
The sunlight on your face
As the day begins to break
Why They're Misrhymed:
No comments ...
Submitted by: Annett
"Someone to Call my Lover"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Maybe we'll meet at a bar,
He'll drive a funky car,
Maybe we'll meet at a club,
And fall so deeply in love.
He'll tell me I'm the one,
And we'll have so much fun,
I'll be the girl of his dreams,
Why They're Misrhymed:
Half of these are stretched or aren't rhymes. bar-car=What does it matter if a guy drives a cool car or a crappy one?? club-love=Don't rhyme. one-fun=Okay I guess. dreams-maybe=Come on!! This is just my personal opinion. I like the song, but I don't like the lyrics. I don't know why. Ignore me. I tend to get annoying. Like right now. I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves......

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Strawberry Bounce"
The Dirty Lyrics:
Ew wee baby
My lips as sweet as honey
When I put 'em in your face
Gonna make you spend ya' money
Come on or you're gonna miss it
Ring ring don't you wanna kiss it

Watchin' me do a dance
Makin' you so horny
If you want a little taste
Gotta show me how much you want
Why They're Dirty:
In this song Janet embodies an exotic dancer named Strawberry.

"Like You Don't Love Me"
The Dirty Lyrics:
Damn is that all I get from you
'Bout to give me an attitude
You need to make love to me
Like you don't love me

Don't have to be gentle tonight
Just be an animal tonight
You need to make love to me
Like you don't love me
Why They're Dirty:
This is an ode to casual sex.

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Showing breasts during halftime of the Super Bowl"
Wardrobe malfunction? This happened during the halftime show of Super Bowl XXXVIII, which was televised live during the "family" hours. Her blouse suddenly ripped apart as soon as Justin sang the last line of "Rock Your Body", ("Hope to see you naked by the end of this song") making the malfunction excuse hard to believe. Janet was wearing nipple rings, so the nipples were slightly blocked. She did apologize later, but it's sad that this and being Michael's sister are the only non-music things she'll now be now for.

"Wardrobe Malfunction"
Best known for her "wardrobe malfunction" during the 2005 Super Bowl halftime show
