Hey! When I heard the first 5 seconds... sexy Apollonia 6 :D but then I heard another song that was released by The Time and was like oh ok... obviously. The Purple Man was such a creative and gifted musician, composer and producer. Thank you for this thread, Funktipus.

I was very sad when Prince died, probably the only celebrity death I took with even a pinch of sympathy. I've been a big Prince fan for years, loved his sexy and ambiguous take on pop. My sadness was compounded when I wondered just what his family would do with his estate, and the massive vault of unreleased music he had shelved. Obviously not everything was going to be a zinger, but Prince was a perfectionist - if he wasn't satisfied, it wouldn't see the light of day, and this could be shown with his reluctance to show the public another side with The Black Album. What would they end up doing? Would they go the Michael Jackson route and almost immediately sully his admittedly spotty late discography? I'm pleased to see that no, rather some half-baked demo albums we're treated to songs that Prince wrote and performed in some capacity but for one reason or another either weren't released, were used by another artist or were only heard live. My highlight here is the haunting "Nothing Compares 2 U" which has been a karaoke choice of mine since Sinead O'Connor lost her mind, found Islam and started drunken fights with strangers.

 

Things could have been a lot worse. The cynic in me wonders if Prince would have even wanted this to be released but we could have gotten a hastily cobbled and messily produced album, so every cloud and all that.

IMO, Vanity 6's version is better than Apollonia's. It's a shame Priince & Vanity couldn't work things out. I was so disappointed to find out she wasn't going to be in 'Purple Rain'. Would have been a better film.
