Happy Birthday Prince Rogers Nelson

People give Prince a tremendous amount of shit because of his strange behavior, the clothes that he wears, or his height, but in my opinion he is the MAN.. Any man that can claim to have notches on his belt that include Vanity, Appolonia, Sheila E, Mai Tai, Sheena Easton, Carmen Elektra, Nona Gay, and Kim Bassinger gets absolute respect from me.(I'm a pig, you guys know that!) I have to be totally honest, I am more of a fan of his work pre-Diamonds and Pearls but that is just me. My favorites songs of his include "1999", "Lady Cab Driver", "Delirious", "Purple Rain", "Sign of the times", and countless other songs that I could be all day naming.(Feel free to name some of your favorites) But my favorite song, even though I know its cliche to say, is "Darling Nikki". I could write an entire post breaking down the numerous times I have penetrated someones daughter to this song. For that Prince, I owe you a sincere "thank you"

Happy Birthday

I always loved "The Beautiful Ones" but the best Prince moment is when he does the title song at the end of Purple Rain.

APPLAUSE...I Love Prince!!!! VERY talented artist. People just don't give Prince the props that he deserves. I can go on forever about all the Prince songs I love. I remember when he was with Nona Gaye, in fact I still have the song they did together "Love Sign". Some of my favorites are "Adore", "I hate U", can't count how many times I listened to that song while I thought about my ex. The entire Purple Rain album, and "1999", the man was way ahead of his time with that one.


Anyway great post once again!!!

okay, i'll give him his props in his music... but i STILL can't give a dude props on his style of dress when it involves women's shoes and shit...

he boned Nona Gaye?!!! aww FUCK!!! i don't know if i'm diggin her anymore. i just dont know what to think about a woman who finds men in women's clothing appealing. WAIT!!! no, nevermind. i'm dealing with a Prince fanatic right now and i've learned to overlook it. BRING ON NONA GAYE!!!!!

Dadgummit, u beat me to the punch on a Prince blog. I'm a huge fan, I hit the high notes, I've got everybody's moves down in Purple Rain and I lost my mind during his last concert hoorah.

My fav list includes: Purple Rain, When Doves Cry and pretty much all of the draws-droppin' songs *there, I said it!*

DeeDee said...

I think Prince is the man too.. He's a genius.. And he has his shit together.. My favorites are Power Fantastic and I Love you In Me.. The music is wonderful just a good if not better than the lyrics..

CaffeineDiva said...

Prince is one of my all time favorite artists!! Thank you for acknowledging his birthday.
I Hate U, The Beautiful Ones, The Ballad of Dorothy Parker, Starfish & Coffee, Controversy.. all hot!
Much Love to Prince!

I second Dia and everybody else: Prince is fabulous and beautiful and beyond compare. I commend you for sticking up for him and for championing a guy who has made a whole career out of celebrating how "different" he is from anybody - his whole identity is entirly original. I know what it's like to be teased for not fitting in so he's a hero to all of us who were *outsiders* at any time in our lives. My favourite song of his of all time is Pop Life.

I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE Prince. I even know his Astrological chart! He's a Gemini with Scorpio rising. (The Scorpio makes him freaky). I have to say when I saw him in concert last summer I almost lost my damn mind. I was up for the entire concert dancing. My favorite Prince songs are "When Doves Cry", "Controversy" and "Soft and Wet". I could name more, but I don't think I would have enough space to name them. Hell remember when he had that comic book out with his alter ego Gemini? I bought that too! Damned if I know where the hell it is now. I wonder if it would be worth something today?

Mad Bull said...

Oh man! I love Prince too... my favourite song by him was 'Karma Chameleon'... no, wait... that was Boy George wasn't it? Cho man! I keep forgetting shyte! I'd better ease back on this joe!

That's it, i'm officially in love with you. Prince is my absolute favorite, he is one hell of a guitar player. He was much better before diamonds and pearls but the musicology record is less crap than most of his recent work.
For the sake of space I'll not mention acting like a 14 year old outside TRL at his last concert or that I actually did pay the $25 to be part of the npgmc and have access to better concert seats, despite the entire site looking like a special needs version of the old Myst computer game.

Mariposa said...

Always in my Hair, Call My Name, Take Me with You, Baby I'm a Star, My Name is Prince, 7, Morning Paper, Starfish and Coffee, Damn You, Diamonds and Pearls (that one will be my wedding song), Gett Off, many more.

PlatinumGirl said...

I do love him. I had a front row seat to his show here last September, and a 2nd row seat when I saw him in 1997. The best seats I've ever had for any concert have been for one of my favorite musicians ever. The man gave me some skin on his way off the stage at the end of this last show! The girl next to me was a little luckier: she got the pocket square he was wearing in his suit toward the end of the show. He just took it out and handed it to her. What a night!

Songs -- Little Red Corvette, Housequake, Girls & Boys, Anotherloverholeinyohead, Sign O' the Times, Erotic City, Thieves in the Temple, When Doves Cry, Purple Rain, Computer Blue, Starfish & Coffee, It, The Most Beautiful Girl in the World, Pop Life . . . I could go on and on. I don't care what anyone says -- the man is a musical fucking genius and should be regarded accordingly!

And yes, he does put on a hell of a show.

Prince makes you think of dirty things that otherwise you would not even go there in your mind. It's all in the music!!!

Love the Purple Badness!

Prince, I want to say I love you!You are truly an artist with your soft, sexual songs. I am a 36 year old woman and I must say, it is hard to find sexy love songs anymore. Thank you prince; you keep my romance alive!

I have always loved him.. and I was listening to Celine Dion one day in 1995, ( it was after a surgery, man.. it MUST HAVE been the drugs from the hospital!!) and I was like, "that is some pretty nice lyrics.." I take the CD jacket out, and I am looking at it, and I am like..."WTH?? Prince wwrites songs for CELINE DION?Apparently so.. but I love him anyway...LOL!

Jolina said...

I've loved Prince ever since I first heard his song "Contoversy" at a skating rink in Augusta, Ga. I was 7 1/2 years old. I had no idea what he looked like until I saw a poster of him in a shower with bikini briefs on on my girlfriend's older sister's closet door about a month later. I think at that moment I understood what sexy meant. The man is truly incredible. Thank U God for this creation! Thank u Prince for your creations!

I LOVE PRINCE. HE'S A JEHOVAH'S WITNESS NOW. HE'S THE MAN. LARRY GRAHAM AIDED HIM TO BECOME A JEHOVAH'S WITNESS. THEY ARE TWO GREAT MUSICIANS.

Prince saved my life and kept me sane during my younger years. He also taught me what love and lust should be for that alone I thank him. By the way everything he does is worth loving and commiting to memory. You will never know when a verse or two of one of his songs will steer you in the right direction. L$P

I have loved prince since i was 13 years old and i am now 40. I've never seen him in concert, although i want to so bad, i am scared i will pass out and miss the show.He is hands down the sexiest man alive!!! My only wish in the world is to see him in person, and steal a kiss, that is if i do not pass out!!!

Prince is the Greatest!! He is also very honest and true in his music expression .. No one can tell it like Prince tells it .. he tells the truth and the way he puts it all together in his music is nothing but Genius and Amazing!! There's so much to hear in his music and lyrics if you really listen .. with a good ear. I find myself listening to my fav Prince songs over and over and over again and I luv them for so many different reasons .. sometimes I am overwhelmed with jubilation when I think of his gift and how unselfishley he shares it with us each & everyday!! You can tell he puts his heart & soul in to it .. each & everytime he releases a new song or video .. it's pretty interesting, new & different and always good!! There's no stopping Prince!! He is the Best out there!! No one can surpass this man and his talents!!
