I didn't know this one, though feel I ought to have done. Such a pleasant surprise to hear a singer managing to hold long clear notes without those maddening warbles and tics that pass for 'style' these days, something which drives me up the wall.Btw: Wern't there rumours (a couple of years ago, I think) about Prince becoming one of those 'born-again' horrors? If so I hope it was only a passing phase - especially since I always found him much sexier than the sexLESS, though formidably talented, late M.J.
I 1000% agree with your first paragraph!!!!! MJ had those and it drove me nuts; so did whitney houston; so does mariah carey. do it correctly without the nonsense flourishes.spouse says you are correct about the "born again" crap; I have no idea what his current status is.
Ms Carey, above everyone else, has me reaching to turn the damn thing off. How the hell she's become the highest- earning female singer in entire world history gets me despairing for mankind! Now if someone's going to come along and jump to her defence I'm not listening - especially to HER!
I've been over her for quite some time. at 42 she wants to look 16 - uh, NO! if I never hear her screech again I'll be happy.
Surprised by Raybeard's comment about La Carey. Just think of it as post-modern coloratura. Actually I agree about Mariah. I have never been a fan of the 'wail & emote' school of popular singing.
me neither; tone it down a bit, no need for screeching.
Another excellent choice! My favorite line, "You don't have to watch Dynasty to have an attitude."Prince is too much of a man whore to be gay. I've always thought he was dirty sexy. You just know he would be a freak in the sack.One more thing - Pretty Woman, Julia Roberts caught singing Kiss in the tub. Classic!!!HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!!MAC
"You just know he would be a freak in the sack." - agree 1000%! smooches!
I vote both.
BOTH?!? so he's bi? :-0
Prince? He's one of those types neither side wants to claim, like the nerdy boy who is picked last for baseball teams.
OH SNAP! ;-)
Never a huge fan of 'His Purpleness' but always loved this song. Actually I liked several of his songs before "Purple Rain". Then he changed his name to a tramp stamp I lost track of him. Off the wall question but is anyone else having a problem with this link? When I click on it the music that plays is not Prince. It's Plain White T's "Hey There Delilah".I right-clicked to copy the url and opened it in a new window...same thingI left the desktop and pulled it up on Spo's laptop...same thingThe video image is Prince but the music is not. WEIRD!!
I feex. asshole hackers! :(
