True Or False: Private Joy is the first Prince song...

...to appear on record in his chest voice (non-falsetto) and is the first Prince song to feature the Linn Drum???

If so is a pretty ground-breaking track, no??

I’m gonna be difficult and say “Get it Up” is. First Chest voice, definitely first Guitar solo that loud on a funk song & the synth line is Typical future Prince.

False.

Just As Long As We're Together has a verse sung in his low voice

I don’t think you understand the question. Poster meant first song in the “Prince style I believe. JALAWT is all over the place, mostly rehashed disco sounds.

I hate to break it to you, but at least half of Private Joy is sung in falsetto.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.
