mid-week music moment: Janet Jackson

Happy Wednesday, friends. I'm sorry I missed last week's MWMM - I think I must have had sand in my brain left over from the beach. This week I hope you don't mind, but I'm going to take a little break from posting your favorite albums that you left in the comments to share a little something that is really pulling me through this week.

I'm having major vacation hangover / withdrawals from the beach, and I don' t know if any of you have ever attempted to move (or maybe just think about moving) in New York City, but it is one of the greatest human miseries to ever be created. Is this #firstworldproblems? Absolutely. However, it's my problem and it's sucking the life out of me one unreturned voicemail, unread email, and bank account withdrawal at a time.

To get me through it I've turned to an album I totally forgot about, but that is absolutely amazing, and that's Janet Jackson's Design of a Decade 1986/1996. Why is this helping so much? I can't really say. It makes me nostalgic, happy and energized at the same time - which actually, is exactly what I need to take my mind off of all this craziness. So there you have it. From "Rhythm Nation" and "Control" to "Love Will Never Do (Without You)," it's all gems, all the time.

Please enjoy "Escapade" as much as I currently am.

Anyone else having a rough week? Feel free to vent right here, I'm listening and ready to commiserate.
