I love Prince. I was actually thinking about posting about the song 17 Days...I play it all the time, and it is one of my favorite songs he did.

But, I love: When Doves Cry, I would Die 4 U, Take Me with U, You've got the Look, Mountains,
Little Red Corvette, Delirious, and 1999...plus many more.

I actually was a Prince fan when the song "Controversy" came out years ago. It built since then....I love the B-Sides like "Erotic City" & others. Purple Rain was actually a very good movie.

Not to mention that Prince was behind Vanity 6's "Nasty Girl" and Sheila E's "The Glamouruos Life". [Cool]

My fave Prince songs are not from the 80's, I really don't like his 80's stuff.

I love, "Cream", "7", "Diamonds and Pearls" and "Most beautiful girl in the world" the best.

His 90's songs are cool, too. I once parodied TMBGITW for my father, & he loved it! He didn't even know it was Prince 'till I told him! [Big Grin]

Prince is a genius, he's gone through some patchy moments in his career the past 10 years or so, but he has a really good body of work. He was untouchable during the 82-87 period, I had chance to see him a few years ago, but I didn't make it, silly me. I really like some of prince's not well known song like Free on the 1999 album.

Prince is an awesome individual. He was way ahead of his time. I'm a huge fan of his music and movies. I tend to favor Purple Rain...

I actually quoted the song "Free" in the section that went below my yearbook photo in 2001.

I used the quote "Be glad that you are free...There's many a man who's not".

I guess I wrote that because that's how I felt about my graduating class. We were free.

Sincerely,

I'm straight and Prince is one of my all time favorites. Especially the 82-88 era.

I was in a punk rock band and everything, yet, still love Prince.

I even love the stuff he wrote for other bands, the Time, Vanity 6, Mavis Staples etc

If I could only find the Apollonia stuff on CD.

I like the 80s Prince better than anything he has done since Batman Soundtrack. He has evolved so much through his music that he doesn't even sound the same to me. It would be cool if he would go back and do a Purple Rain 2 album and see if he could come up with any more songs!

I wholeheartedly agree Riptide. Prince's body of work is great. This includes the many hit songs he's written and produced for other artists over the years. That coupled with his enormous musical talent makes him, IMO, one of the true musical genius of our time.

The Beautiful Ones from Purple Rain is still simply brilliant.I love the way it starts so slow and gentle then gradually builds to his screaming climax.And its still a perfect song about lost love.At least thats how i continue to interpret it.Superb.

I’m guessing you already know about his new single 'Te Amo Corazon' and upcoming album ‘3121’. The video for said single will be directed by Salma Hayek, who did her own version of this song on the soundtrack to 'Once Upon A Time In Mexico'

i have to agree. but then, there so many other songs he did that are just as good. of course there are the obvious, more popular songs like purple rain, little red corvette...and so on. but i am more into his songs like, gigalos, do me baby, erotic city, pop life, adore & many others.
my favorite has to be i would die 4 u, because it holds a special place in my heart as well as a great memory.
prince's work is so varied and yet, he still has managed to keep his own sense of self and style, with his music ranging from funk, to pop, to rock and roll. he plays awesome guitar and beautiful piano, writes for other artists, & produces.
riptide said it best, the man is truly a genius.
