Bump because I've fallen in love with Prince and because Purple Rain is the greatest album of all-time.

What a disgrace this thread has been lying dormant.

Not sure if Prince had outlined that he'd release his music to YouTube and streaming services in the wake of his death, but a lot of stuff has been appearing online.

Official video for my favourite Prince song has gone up. God I miss this man.

Thought your fave was Lady Cab Driver? Either way, the song you posted is better.

My favorite Prince song is probably either Take Me With U or Starfish and Coffee.

My top 15 (basically the Prince album I would compile for someone, just in a different order) would look something like

1. When You Were Mine
2. Take Me With U
3. I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man
4. Let's Go Crazy
5. Purple Rain
6. Raspberry Beret
7. Little Red Corvette
8. Sometimes It Snows in April
9. If I Was Your Girlfriend
10. I Would Die 4 U
11. I Wanna Be Your Lover
12. Erotic City
13. 1999
14. Endorphinmachine
15. Dirty Mind

Which looking over it is mostly hits and not enough deep cuts, but the man was a great singles artist, including the b-sides.

Well, as much as I hate the reasoning for it, him being gone sort of opens the floodgates to that sort of thing. It is nice to see the videos in an easy setting now though.

Was watching Controversy last night myself. An oldie, but a goodie...

I actually never realised until I watched that clip^ that that upbeat synth/piano part (first heard briefly at 0:42) is from Controversy. I fucking ADORE that shit.

I cannot get that music out of my head. What a song. "Some people wanna die / so they can be free"

I love it too. So many good things to pick out of it lyrically or musically... just like a lot of his songs, for that matter.

Showtime is airing Prince's Sign O the Times concert film. It's fucking badass. I hope they release this as a DVD. Maybe it's already out there, I need to check.

I hung onto Showtime after Twin Peaks ended just for this, now I can cancel it from my Amazon Prime.

I found a good quality rip on torrents. It's amazing. I think the DVD might be out of print?

Anyway, I'll take it any day over Purple Rain (the movie).
