Radio XLVIII, side A, track 4: “Rhythm Nation” by Janet Jackson

Janet Jackson - Rhythm NationOh, Janet Jackson, how I always wanted to be a part of the Rhythm Nation!  But I couldn’t really sing.  And I CERTAINLY couldn’t dance.  So I’m guessing once the Rhythm Nation comes to pass, I’ll probably be doing some clerical work.  Maybe be in charge of potlucks, make sure everybody signs your birthday card, that kind of thing.  It’s fine, Janet Jackson, I accept that not all of us can be on the front lines.  On the bright side, I’ll have great music to listen to when I’m working on spreadsheets.

“Rhythm Nation”

<awesome Janet Jackson jam>

With music by our side
To break the color liiines

Let’s work together to improve our way’a life

Join voices in protest
To social injustice

A generation full of courage, come forth with me
People of the world today
Are we lookin’ for a better way
Of life

Strength in numbers, we can get it right

No struggle, no progress

Lend a hand to help yo brother do his best
