Janet Jackson - Rock With U

Song style
: Incomprehensible lyrics, inebriating groove
Fan video style: with enunciation
Song weakness: Doesn't have the pop thrust of first single "Feedback"
Song strength: Continues the metaphor of words being second to body language, the language of love, yadda yadda.
Fan video strength: Complete fan vocal of the song, a capella
Fan video weakness: No dancing, no group hug at 2m30s.
Official video style: Robert Altman meets Quincy Jones - lighting and blocking (all done in one take?) and a convincing cohesion between dance numbers and scenario not typical of the Jackson repertoire.
Other notable mention: She hasn't made a video this good in 18 yrs.
