I really like that!

It's a very studio produced sound, isn't it? But it's v catchy and the vocal's cool.

I never knew she put out anything! I always assumed she was the talentless Jackson...lol.
Well, I guess that title officially goes to Latoya.

Oh the 1980's were spectacular for highly tacky videos and this is just one of the many.

But I do have very fond memories of the 1980's particularly 1985 to 1987. That's when I did my radio DJ gig. And yes, while we were there 91.3FM WDOM got a little power boost. We knew how to get the transmitter power up over 150W so (closer to 300W, that is what you get when you hire computer and electronics geeks to do radio) and we were supposed to sign off at 2AM but sometimes the music was flowing so good and the request lines ringing off the hook so you didn't want to stop.

Funny, I was just listening to this song randomly on my computer. Good old Rebbie.

This was never my favorite song. Love the video.

Christopher what are you talking about!!! LOL!! To be honest Rebbie has the best voice of the Jackson girls. Janet and Latoya have kinda mousy voices, but Janet makes up for it as an outstanding performer. (Come on ya'll know Janet ain't winning no singing contests..let's be real!!)But i always thought Rebbie had a fairly decent singing voice.

I just watched the video and I have to say, I always loved this song when I was younger but I have no idea what a Centipede has to do with ANYTHING! And was Madonna mad that she stole all the men from her Material Girl video? LOL!

Dude, it's on my mp3 player. Rebbie is fierce. Have you heard the rumor that she raised Janet's child from the abusive DeBarge husaband?

I haven't heard that
