(43-65) A Little PRINCE
I've always enjoyed Prince. I remember the first time that I saw him, when he performed "Wanna be your lover" on Saturday Night Live; and I recall not knowing if he was a guy or a girl; but why wouldn't one be confused with the lyrics "I wanna be your brother; I wanna be your mother and your sister too." OK, I was confused; and I think that I thought that he was too; but nonetheless; I LOVED the song and I recall that performance to this day; so make an impression he did.
A couple of years later "Purple Rain" came out and I was a Big fan, "Huge!" I can't even count how many times I saw that movie in the theater. I had the soundtrack (of course;) and the day the video (OK, date myself much) came out; I had a "Purple Rain" viewing party. There were so many fantastic songs in that movie / album; I'd be hard pressed to find one that I didn't like. Let's face it; the man is a hit machine no matter what his name is.
Funny how just scanning the radio in a couple of seconds, can lead to a post for the night; but there you have it. Hearing those 2 songs, reminded me of how much I like Prince and I always have; so I'm going to share my top 5 Prince songs with you; and bid you happy listening.
Till next time...
