STARK
****
Bevor der Song wieder im Hinterteil meines Kopfes für die nächsten Jahre verschwindet, bewerte ich ihn doch lieber gleich noch. Nettes Duett, aber nicht wirklich der grosse Knaller, trotz zweier grosser Namen.
*****
nett
****
Sommer Hit in 1992.... gut duet.... # 24 in NL-Hitparade.... Endlich wieder ein song der swingt..... 4 ! punkten
*****
...erfrischendes duett...

vor allem durch Mo' Money bekannt geworden..
*****
▓ Goede plaat van “Luther Vandross, Janet Jackson en de speciale gastartiesten BBD & Ralph Tresvant” uit juli 1992 !!! Echter geen groot succes in Nederland !!! De plaat stond maar 4 weken (# 24) in de Nederlandse Top 40 van juli / augustus 1992 !!! Deze plaat had er van mij langer (en hoger) in mogen blijven !!! Net geen 5 sterren !!!

Ein tolles Duett von Luther & Janet! Diese beiden Musikstars haben diesen Song toll interpretiert.
*****
Frisch, fröhlich, macht einfach gute Laune. Für Luther einer seiner größten internationale Erfolge. In den USA und besonders in den R&B-Charts hatte er noch einige andere Granaten. Obwohl es auch in den R&B-Charts # 1 war.

Rest in peace Luther!

Super Dancefloor, speziell die House-Versionen davon sind spitze.

GANZ GENAU; DIE HOUSE-VERSOINEN SIND NICHT SCHLECHT. ANSONSTEN HALT NETT UND UNSPEKTAKULÄR, WIE MAN ES VON DEN BEIDEN KENNT

guter Durchschnitt, geht nicht auf die Nerven

Ein gelungenes, interessantes Duett, welches gute Laune verbreitet. Hat mir schon damals sehr gut gefallen. Dazu noch ein ziemlicher Ohrwurm.
***
weniger..
***
Ist mir auch irgendwie zu nervös...

Sie singen "Die besten Dinge im Leben sind umsonst"...
Nachdem ich aber für dieses Lied bezahlt hab, kann's auch so dolle nicht sein...
*****
Groovy und sauber soulig arrangiert und gesungen. Luther Vandross selig ist sowieso sensationell.
*****
sehr gut
*****
A mon goût, Janet a livré ici son meilleur titre. Merci Luther Vandross et paix à ton âme...
****
Ganz nett,nicht mehr.
*
wenn ich sowas höre, wird mir immer schlecht
****
Ja, der geht wirklich in Ordnung.
*****
Dieser housige Song gefiel mir schon damals überraschenderweise recht gut, obwohl ich eigentlich ganz Anderes bevorzugte. Kommt immer noch gut. Aufgerundete 5*.
****
Ein ganz nettes Stück was so dahin plätschert. In 5/92 USA #10 8/92 GB #2 D #8
*****
sehr schönes gute-laune duett mit dem großartigen luther... geht in die beine...
****
gut
*****
Ein nicht übles Duett, welches ich aber noch nie im Radio gehört habe (zumindest kann ich mich nicht daran erinnern).
Der Classic Club Edit finde ich persönlich besser als die originale Version im damals typischen New Jack Swing-Style.
****
4 + - erfrischend
****
Ich hätte wirklich gedacht, dass das eine Ballade wäre!! Ganz im Gegenteil ... voll grooviger Song!
*****
Sehr gutes Duett.
****
Ja, nicht mal so übel. Nettes Vocal-House-Geträller. Klingt, als wär's von Todd Terry produziert. 3.5+
***
Ø
***
Fortunately this song is for free too...... 3 +
***
wenig beeindruckend
***
Unspektakuläre Nummer, käme mir beim spontanen Aufzählen von Janet-Songs nicht in den Sinn...
****
Netter dance

There are many versions of this track but the version I most enjoy is the full rap version of it.
****
Prima duet tussen Janet en Luther!!!
*****
Janet compliments Luther's vocals well.
****
Catchy tune. UK#2 and Ireland#6.

Buena.
*****
Der Refrain ist gut.
****
flott groovendes, housiges R&B-Duett aus 1992 – 4.5 (abgerundet)…
****
Quite good.
*
schlecht
*****
Ein weiteres sehr gelungenes Duett aus dem Jahr. Ein schöner Comebackhit für Luther Vandross vor allem, der Janet Jackson völlig an die Wand singt. Aber auf sympathische Art und Weise ;)
****
... gutes Duett ...
****
Cool pop track
****
...passt - die beiden im Duett - ...
***
Not for me but it's ok.
****
Good song.
*****
Titre issu de la BO de Mo'Money. J'adore cette collaboration, très équilibrée et pleine d'énergie.
****
Ganz gut für Janet. *4-
**
i don't see anything great on it, but thats not so disposable
****
Viel Tempo in diesem Song. Aber zu viel JJ.
******
6 stars
*****
ganz gut

CDN: #8, 1992
USA: #10, 1992
****
Das war noch hörbarer R&B (: 4-
****
...durchschnittliche vier...
****
Quite a good and memorable song. I like this slightly better now than compared to back in the '90s.
****
Die Message immer noch gültig - der damals aktuelle R'n'B-Sound in einem netten Pop-Song konserviert.
***
schwach
*****
One of those few tracks i had to 'Shazam' whilst in Best&Less one day. Fantastic track!!
******
You bet your bitchin' arse that it's fantastic. :D
*****
Ils sont en parfaite symbiose et leur allégresse donne le sourire.
****
Ich liebe Janet 80s und 90s song, aber die Nummer fand ich immer so la la! Ist zwar noch ganz ok, aber verglichen mit den starken songs davor 8und auch danach) eher nur eine "ganz nette" Nummer!
Was mich aber total nervt ist das ich den Song so oft auf CD habe aber nie die Original Single Version (so wie im Clip!): Habe die 2 Best of´s, das ist jeweils eine andere aber nicht die Original Version, und auf meiner Maxi CD sind auch nur Remixe drauf!
***
middelmatig nummer
***

Diese Produktion ist mir zu nervös.
**
sowas zu hören, erstaunt mich keineswegs, wenn diese Zwei dahinterstecken. meine Musik ist es nicht. gefalle es, wem es wolle, aber ich kann mich hier wirklich nicht zu mehr Sternen durchringen... ich möchte sowas auch nicht am Radio konsumieren müssen! 2+
*****
Ich runde hier auf 'ne 5 auf. Toller Ohrwurm, gute Danceproduktion.
*****
Gute Nummer

dabei ist die Nummer nicht das Original sondern das Original stammt aus dem Jahre 1927 und geschrieben von RAY HENDERSON

natürlich total abgewandelt. Janet Jackson wie auf dem Leib geschneidert
***
Zu nervös.
****
Mir ein wenig zu nervös.
