Does anybody remember The Jets?

Rocket 2 U? Crush On U? Cross My Broken Heart? Whatever happened to the 17 member band we all knew and loved as The Jets? I dug them for a while. Then I turned 14 and I lost track.


The Jets during their heyday.

I liked one of their slow songs, the title of which currently escapes me. I saw them perform at the MN State Fair, circa 1986, '87 maybe? Not sure. What was the name of that slow song. Anybody? All I know is, they had a song called "Love Umbrella." I always wondererd if that was the same thing as a "raincoat"?

Thanks for remembering. and yes that was the jam too. it was like just when I thought crush was the best, than came the long version...
I used to want to stop my car, get out and dance on the side of the road when I would hear that song.

I remember the Jets and yes,I was a fan lol

"How did you know? cause I never told
You found out...I've got a crush on you"



Saw them in concert in March 1986 with Ready For the World and Doug E.Fresh with Slick Rick.I think the Jets put on the best show....very energetic performance! My favorite songs by them:

"Curiosity" (1985)---this is actually funkier than most "bubblegum" hits
"Crush On You" (1985)---this song was HUGE when it was released in early 1986.You couldn't resist that catchy chorus.
"You Got It All"(1985)---love this song!!! I still play it regularly.
"Private Number"(1985)---a forgotten single from their debut album
"Cross My Broken Heart"(1987)
"I Do You" (1987)---like "Curiosity",this is surprisingly funky for a "bubblegum" hit.The video was filmed at Paisley Park.
"Make It Real"(1987)---sounds alot like "You Got It All",but it's still a great song
"Anytime"(1987)---a beautiful ballad from their second album
"Sending All My Love"(1987)

Yes,he did.He offered it to them in 1987 for inclusion on their second album 'Magic',but they rejected it.In an interview,they said that they simply didn't think it was strong enough for their album.Prince didn't seem to mind.He allowed them to film their video "I Do You" at his Paisley Park studio.
