They're different songs. "Come On Get Up" is a 4 on the floor banger. It was begging for remixes.

"Rock With U" is more of a low-key lounge thump. "Go Deep" is its cousin.

Even though "Come On Get Up" is a fun song, a tune like "Together Again" is superior.

But it's not a fair comparison between COGU and RWU.

I felt like they’re both in the same key, hence the comparison

Come on get up definitely feels like it’s for a club and rock with u for a lounge

Yes it’s on YouTube. I have my phases where I love to play the first three performances from the all for you tour, which I also went to and had 9th row! The come on get up and trust a try performance with its visuals made up for them not being released as singles

You talking about Janet Live In Hawaii? It's on DVD as well. I hate that there was never a proper video for it, though. Although, they could've overdubbed the studio version and used the live footage, plus other tour footage (from the show, back stage, etc).

I love both, but Come On Get Up ranks higher in my heart. Just reading the title and I'm singing it now.

Rock witchu (and the whole Discipline album) is underrated though
If you will, so will I

I listen to Rock With U more. I love the laid back vibe to it but it's really the video that got me more into the song. I love when Janet does those "no cuts" (I know there are cuts lol) one take dance videos like When I Think Of You. They're always fun and creative.

Yes!!! Discipline is underrated. I also loved come on get up as soon as I heard it. I wish it was released properly in 2002, it would have been another number 1 for her

Trivial succintly said it all. I'm in complete agreement. Comparisons have to match at least in tempo. I enjoy both songs but I go to RWU way more often. 1st heard COGU upon seeing the Live in Hawaii show, so I was intrigued. She's never really opened a show with a non-single or a song that's not the title track (to my recollection). It translated well as a show and album opener, but not strong enough to be a single IMHO. A bangin' remix could've "changed my mind" tho.

She opened unbreakable with the album track burnitup, which was unknown then since the album came out later in the tour

I think a mashup of come on get up and rock with u would have been great too, even if fan made

I am, the staging on that tour looked incredible. It cost me 22.99 at virgin to buy on VHS when it came out. I came across it a few months ago. I still think iy is the most expensive VHS I ever bought.. Totally agree they should have done that.
