Happy TUNEBACK TUESDAY! In honour of Janet Jackson’s concert here in Toronto tonight, I’m tuning it back to one of her classics, “Escapade”.
ORIGINAL RELEASE DATE: January 8, 1990
TRIVIA: Jackson and Jam & Lewis came up with the song’s theme after hearing the word used in a conversation, deciding it would make an interesting song title due to the word being uncommon. “We usually come up with the music first, then we try to think of a title that fits the way the music sounds”, Jam said. “And ‘Escapade’ we thought was a cool word. It is kind of old fashioned — people don’t really say ‘Let’s go on an escapade’ anymore, but it really worked with that track.”
See you next Tuesday!
