....Escapade by Janet Jackson. Released as the third single from her iconic album Rhythm Nation 1814, Escapade became the second of four #1 singles from the album and the third of seven top 5 hits. Suck on THAT, Thriller. With its sunny, energetic sound and call-to-the-dance-floor lyrics, Escapade was destined to top the Billboard Hot 100, and it did starting on March 3, 1990, where it remained for three weeks. Along with When I Think of You, All For You and Together Again, Escapade is the happiness cherry on top of a cake that looks like Janet's beautiful smile. Janet always performs this song on tour and it's easily a fan favorite. Here is the #1 song from this day in 1990, Escapade by Janet Jackson.
