Flashback: Janet Jackson's All for You

Words make you think a thought. Music makes you feel a feeling. A song makes you feel a thought.
-E. Y. Harburg

I love to post about the songs that I am listening to because that is one of the things that I use to help manage my day, life, mental stability, and stress 😜. Music is an easy tool to have in your stress management toolbox. Janet Jackson has put out so many great albums that I thought I would take a listen to one of my favorites.

Janet Jackson All for You

Janet Jackson's All for You album was released on April 24, 2001. That's a whole teenage adult ago. Much has happened over the last 18 years but this album is still fire. I do think the album did not get as many accolades as her previous releases.

The album has a little bit of something for everyone. It has sexy (Love Scene, Would you Mind), dance (Doesn't Really Matter), hurt (Truth), fun (All for You) and pissed off (Trust A Try, Son Of a Gun).

My favorite dance track is Doesn't Really Matter. I just remember her smile and trying to copy the dance moves. My absolute favorite track though is Someone to Call my Lover. I knew all the words. The visuals of the video were inspiring in that you have to just enjoy life. Sometimes you have to go back to simpler times.

This album was supposedly done after her divorce from her husband and is a mirror of all the emotions she was going through coming out of that. Which may be why there's a little bit of everything. The title is appropriate as well because sometimes you have to let go of things that hold you back, make you said and live for yourself.
