I did say pop stars for a couple of weeks’ top ten tracks blog posts and Prince off course would be my number one pop star of all-time ever! He’s way more funky than most of them and some here could be just total rock! Which my ten picks here of his song or my all-time faves should be rammed up to full volume and then some! Guitar solos on some of these tracks below are insane and well worth looking/listening out for too, can I call him an under-rated guitarist? Explicit lyrics below too but don’t forget he’s the artist that got awarded the very first tipper sticker, you know? I don’t need to say anymore to intro him, do I?
Head – Dirty Mind (1980)
Little Red Corvette – 1999 (1982)
Raspberry Beret – Around the World in a Day (1985)
Starfish And Coffee – Sign O’ the Times (1986)
Electric Chair – Batman (1989)
Gett Off – Diamonds and Pearls (1991)
My Name Is Prince – Love Symbol (1992)
Peach – The Hits/The B-Sides (1993)
Loose! – Come (1994)
Cindy C. – The Black Album (Released 1994 but recorded around 1986)
So that’s early 80’s to almost mid-90’s in the the order they were put out at the time, with six 80’s and four 90’s to make my ten. Yet another artist I could easy do the next ten and another after that but maybe some other time, OK? Anyway it’s half and half of a mix of hit singles and album tracks today just to mix it up and keep you on your toes! All are from some of his biggest and well-known albums but The Black Album seems to be the only one that might be a little harder to find these days, it was only a limited release so it’s been heavily bootlegged too!
Another of my fave pop act next week for part two of my fave pop star top ten tracks, who could it be?
Who’s joining in the fun today and going name your fave Prince songs of all-time?
