I haven´t listened to this Song in quite some time, reminds me of my youth.
When I was a child, I did not like Prince at all. I found him weird, because I would always see on TV that Video Clip from WHEN DOVES CRY, a famous Song he had back then.
He sat in a bath tub totally naked and was acting a bit feminine, it was weird to me as a child.
Later I was told as a Teenager, that I sing a lot like Prince, meaning my Falsetto Voice, which has always been a complete separate Voice I have besides my “normal” Singing Voice.
I checked out his Music and loved it. The compositions of the Music itself, the instrumentation and arrangement, was phenomenal.
The first Song I noticed, I knew from hearing but seriously, as dumb as it sounds now, had no clue it´s by Prince, is THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL IN THE WORLD.
I love this Song, it is one of my favourites for a long time now and I trained it so perfectly well, I can sing it exactly like Prince. In fact, my first ever professional Vocal Demo I made in a Studio when I was a Teeny was KISS by Prince. The Sound Engineer in the Studio said to me: I have seen many singers, but you are unique. We haven´t had such a good Singer in our Studio in 25 years! I will never forget that. It meant a lot to me. But before that, the very first time I ever entered a Studio to show cast my voice, I sang DIRTY DIANA by Michael Jackson.
Here is a Song for today to remind of the Good Ol´Music back in the Day that was REAL ART.
A Song about how Men think about Women, a well meant disguised Advice to Women by Prince: You need a Love that´s gonna last…
