Oh, Janet’s “If.” Distorted guitars, aggressive lyrics, and that unforgettable dance routine — this is truly Jackson at her finest (that’d be 1993). The original version of this video takes place, appropriately, in some den of iniquity with lots of secret rooms/surveillance cameras/general voyeurism, but the YouTube powers-that-be didn’t allow me to embed that. Instead, you can focus on Janet smacking her backup dancer around for the full five minutes in this extra-special dance-only version.

Also, if you’re wondering where that initial sample comes from — well, that’d be The Supremes, singing a comparatively chaste little ditty.
