Gotta have this one on the blog:
Prince had toyed with the charts, and was becoming pretty popular on MTV and the like due to his provocative stage personna. However, it was the album 1999 that put him on top of the pop world. And, it was this song that got him there. 1999 was mixed and sounded absolutely perfect in any disco or dance bar. I have no clue how many times I danced to this song.
Twenty years later, my very young boy, when I started introducing him to music, asked me to play this video for him every time. That’s when I started relaxing as a parent.
