WOW!

Number one where? Are we talking in the US?

Let's Get Serious was OK can't believe it was actually #1
Do What You Do was awful
Don't Take It Personal was the same
and I don't even remember the bolded one.

I always thought the early 80s was a pretty bad time for R&B (short of Prince , Marvin Gaye and MJ) and the reason I was listening to stuff like Duran Duran & Tears for Fears this proves it. JMO but Jermaine Jackson was absolutely terrible.

Jermaine' s best material was in the 1970's. After he left Motown thats when his material started to get watered down. 1984: When The Rain Begins to Fall (w/ Pia Zodoro) was number 1 in Belgium but in US was like a top 60 hit.

I see ypur not a fan, but just for good musics sake, you should try to here some of his material from 1972-1982 he is so soulful and funky. 1984-1991 there is only a couple pf good jams here and there He started to go poppy as you can her with songs like Dynamite.

Aha!!!!! Were you talking about overseas for the other rankings too? I knew I didn't remember those songs being THAT popular here.


He was solo in 72? I thought the J5 didn't separate until the mid to late 70's not long before MJ's Off the Wall.

Only the Rain was an overseas hit. The other three were all US number 1's.

He went solo in 1972 along with Mike and Jackie in 1973. They were all still part of the J5, they just released there on material in between J5 releases. Alot of folks think Mikes first solo was Off The Wall in 79, when actually 1971 was his first solo release and he was still apart of the Jacksons until 1984 after Thriller was rleased in 1982. The Jacksons didn't seperate until 1989.

I know they didn't call it a true break up until then but for all intents and purposes they were done once Off the Wall dropped. Although I did like the Triumph album a lot.
