23rd April 2016

Itís a Prince invasion following the shocking news of his sudden death, one of the giants of music - he may never have had the universal appeal of his contemporaries Madonna and Michael Jackson but he was a significant influence and prolific writer/musician/producer/live sensation/one-man business. I was a fan. In at 1 itís therefore his greatest single, When Doves Cry, no bassline and brilliant, peaking at 2 originally in 1984 in my chart it at last goes one better. This isnít the reason to re-chart it Iíd hoped for though.

That leaves Pet Shop Boys stalled at 2 as more Prince records enter the top 10, including at 4 a record that is a Prince record in all but name - he wrote it, produced it and gave it away to Sheena Easton where it has languished in obscurity ever since. The brilliant 101 topped my chart in 1989, I Wish U Heaven topped my chart in 1988, back now at 5, and Sign Oí The Times peaked at 2 in 1987, back at 6. All are brilliant, and Iíve added video links to youtube which probably wont be there long - Prince on Youtube is a no-no so younger folk may not even have seen these videos. In the case of I Wish U Heaven I doubt anyoneís heard itís Second Summer Of Love brilliant vibe before as the single isnít on compilations and is only available as part of the album Lovesexy - Prince infuriated me when he released the album as a continuous track, there were no track dividers, and when I wanted to play the track I had to fast forward the whole bloody album. Itís still like that. Just one of the many fan-piss-off decisions he made!




Highest non-Prince entry is Adore Delano and Take Me There at 17, before we head back to more Prince tracks. In at 20, Starfish And Coffee, one of his best album tracks, one that should have been a single off the fab Sign Oí The Times album, a period when Prince was on fire. In at 26, Raspberry Beret, one I under-rated at the time (1985), at 30 Alphabet Street (number 1 in 1988), and Sheenaís back with Prince at 38 on U Got The Look (top 10 in 1987). Outside the 40: I Would Die 4 U, Kiss, If I Was Your Girlfriend, Letís Go Crazy, Little Red Corvette, Take Me With U, Purple Rain, and I Wanna Be Your Lover. Phew! Good thing I expanded my chart to 100 this year, no sign of it returning to 75 anytime soon.

Thanks Jason, yes a bit of Prince to say the least!

101 is Sheena's track, thumpingly fab, I want everyone to play it loud and lots, Prince should really have kept it for himself but he couldnt have reached the notes at the end ohmy.gif

cheers!

Hey James cool.gif
Thanks, people tended to find Prince marmite back in the day, but it's good to see him viewed as one of the big pop acts. Ulay Oh! Pity it didnt do better in the votes, but it's fab, and yes 5H is the first single from them that has continued to grow on me the more I play it - I underestimated it, prob thanks to the Rihanna Work similarity (that one just annoys me) laugh.gif

cheers!
