Musical Monday - Poor Prince

Joining in with River for Musical Monday.

I was away when Prince died. I am not much of one for music but I love some of the video clips from the 1980s and I liked some of Princes' music. Superficially, he was not my type and I don't think terribly good looking but there was something incredibly sexy about him.

I was saddened to hear of his death, it seems from accidentally overdosing on pain killers but that is certainly not confirmed.





It was quite difficult to find the original When Doves Cry clip. I love it and I will listen to it in full when I retire to bed this evening.

    1. Yes and yes. If musos lived till 85, we would grieve and move on. But for those who die at 27 or 43 or 57, it seems more tragic than usual. I still haven't got over Janis Joplin dying at 27 :(

    2. EC, I am pleased you are honest. I am sure many did not like him.

      Hels, especially so for me as I am the same age as Prince. Had Janice not died that year, I expect it would have been the next year or the year after.

  4. He had so many different looks and so many talents. I loved his latest look, almost like 30's hair and style. Very slick and professional. I guess his vault contains at least 2000 unpublished songs or more.

    1. Oh yes Strayer, a real professional. Is that right about unpublished songs?

  6. It's only since his passing that I have taken notice of him. He certainly has written some wonderful songs, and more hidden away apparently.

  7. He is one of the most talented musical artists that ever lived. And his eccentricity only elevates his aura. He will be very missed.

  8. I wasn't a Prince fan, but I like some of his songs and there's no denying he had talent and style. Or is that flair? Anyway, he'll be missed by many I'm sure.

    1. Diane, most kindly I suggest, he is of a different generation to your musical tastes? Almost mine really.

  12. Prince was too skinny--you can see his ribs in the video--and he didn't have much of a chest, but I think his overly seductive manner just trumped all that. And of course the camera loved him. Watching him come out of that tub...

    1. Kirk, I wish I could see my own ribs like I used to. Yes, seductive describes him well.

  13. He wasn't my type :) but he certainly had 'something' that's for sure!

    1. Grace, it might not be much more than he was a brilliant showperson.
