That one song that made me fall in love with Prince's music is "Diamonds and Pearls."

.

Honorable mention goes to "Kiss" because that is the first Prince song that I ever loved, and while "Kiss" made me like his music, I didn't fall in love with his music until I heard "Diamonds and Pearls."

Brunswick, Maine. Fall of 1984. I was 11.

My parents had bought be a cheap $65 cassete deck/record player/alarm radio.

I set the alarm radio to wake me up the next morning to the local Portland pop radio station WIGY.

I was awoken the next day by an insane, intoxicating sound the likes of which I'd never heard before. The song was everything - mysterious, pulsating, FULL OF MANIC LIFE!!! What was this?? Who was this???

The song it was mid-stream and I hoped and prayed the DJ would tell us who the artist was at the end...as the song neared it's frenzied end...

"And that was Prince and The Revolution with theorir hit song 'Let's Go Crazy'..."

I cobbled together a few bucks that afternoon and walked to the nearest music store (remember those?) and purchased Purple Rain on tape...

Rest is Princetory...

I remember this very well.....1999. That's when it started for me.
Also went to buy Controversy and rented the first three at the library back then.
Good times πŸ’œ

Kidding. Do Me, Baby was the one. Soon after, songs like Still Waiting, When We're Dancing Close and Slow, It's Gonna Be Lonely, Bambi...from that point it was all like - fuck, if anybody asks you, you belong to Prince. And actually, I'm only half joking about Sister. His willingness to be this counter-culture figure whose taboo lyrics pissed off parents from coast to coast was appealing to me from the get go.

I fell in love with Prince's music at 7 years old when I heard 1999 (and I fell in love with his outtakes when a friend gave me Extralovable on a cruddy cassette in 1994!) lol

I was a fan of his when Controversy was released and an even bigger fan when 1999 came out but the song that hit me the hardest and made my mind explode was How Come You Don't Call Me Anymore. I can tell you exactly where I was when it was played on my radio. That song gave me chills and made me realize that this dude was going to be extraordinarily talented. I couldn't imagine any other singer at the time that had such a vibrant and different take on music like Prince did. Michael Jackson? Nah, his songs even back them were starting to sound the same. Not Prince's songs!

The Ballad of Dorothy Parker.

I heard a lot of Prince music because he was my Uncle's favorite artist and I liked Prince's music but when I heard Dorothy Parker, it changed my life because it was the song that made me fall in love wit music and dive into it and once I did, Prince surpassed Michael Jackson easily in mind as being what God's expression through music sounds like.

wasn't really one song for me, I wasn't that into anyone's music at 13 but I knew that Prince was special as I listened to Controversy over and over again, the way those chords made me feel, i listened over and over and over again. At the time, i didn't know I'd become a musician and I wouldn't call myself a fan but I was definitely intrigued, then came Little Red Corvette, same thing but even more profound, just listened to it everytime I could and still consider it the most perfect pop song ever. Then came purple rain and I was a fanatic and knew I wanted to be a musician.

Prince.org: With fans like these he didn't need haters.

Downloaded All my Dreams from Kaaza and or Bearshare. Was blown away and fell head over heels in love that song. I had official stuff, the black album and chocolate box from the local wrekastow. They told me that the boots were European releases so I was under that impression and being a teen in the early 90's no internet to fact check that they were actually boots. I was oblivious until 06-07 when I found a site the had the Work track list and another site that broke down official and non-releases. Plus it didn't help the I was the only person that liked Prince out of everyone I knew and wasn't smarted up until the internet told me!!

I enjoyed Prince from "I Wanna Be Your Lover", but it was "DMSR" that just sent me into another stratosphere with him.

"The Hits 1" which i bought back in 98', the whole thing slowly grew on me. I guess "I Could Never Tke The Place of Your Man" was the song that first hooked me the most.

Pay me peanuts, and i'll act like a monkey.
