The Pleasure Principle

Lyrics

You might think I'm crazy, but I'm serious
It's better you know now
What I thought was happiness was only part-time bliss
You can take a bow

My favorite J.J. song of all time...and video!
A pleasure to listen to. Great upbeat song. Puts me in a good mood. She was putting out some amazing disks in the mid to late 1980s. Control and Rhythm Nation are solid from beginning to end and I highly recommend both.
thats my baby so fine -----bmiller
This song is so on point
When's her next concert?
I wanna go!!!
Where is this writer??!! Just to think when I was a little girl I had no idea what the lyrics were saying. I was just enjoying Janet. This writer put this very well.
Never knew the words until now. Deep lyrics!!!!!! ! ! !

All the songs on this album are the best!!! It's a must have for early Janet fans...When she started this 'nasty girl phase' was when her career blossomed. LOVE IT!!!
