This is how Janet's World Tour should sound

You might have missed (or simply not cared) that Janet Jackson announced her biggest ever world tour on November 18th.

The idea is that she'll hire smaller, theatre-sized venues, to "get closer to the fans" (Trans: "my last tour didn't sell out") and will only play songs from her extremely good Number Ones compilation.

If you head over to her website, she's even allowing fans choose which 35 cities she'll visit - which could result in her "hilariously" playing Pyongyang or Fallujah.

What I'd like to see, however, is Janet ditching her whole dance-troupe-vegas-production-number schitck and presenting the songs in a new light. This little video from YouTube shows how, for instance, That's The Way Love Goes could be freshened up for the 21st Century. As the author says "a few rough spots, but not bad for 4am".
