Old School Music Friday....

First of all, I want to thank all of you who left your comments on my last post, Reader Opinion: Who Are Today's Black Hollywood Greats? Very interesting reads....keep it coming!

This week's meme is kinda scary, and maybe Mrs. Grapevine was exhausted from running after her toddlers when she thought this one up. It is Prince, and everybody and their cousin knows that when you post this dude, disaster soon follows...I'm gonna live dangerously and participate, but if you come back later and my blog is gone at least you'll know why!

Prince has probably made as a single force the largest amount of my favorite songs, and I have loved him from the very day he came on the scene. No one comes close to his genius in my opinion, except for maybe Stevie Wonder. I am going to be a bit different today and post a very short intro he did when he was on "American Bandstand" when he was 19. If you think he grew into his weirdness, think again....this video is confirmation that dude was pretty much born that way. What's really strange is that he looks almost exactly the same now as he did then...Dorian Gray anyone?:


Prince - Interview American Bandstand
by halloaluile


Update: Found this--I used to love this song--my friends would tease me cause I played the living sh*t out of this album. Here is Prince looking like his best David Bowie:

Prince - Anotherloverholeinyohead [Video] - Prince
One More-just cause I love this one so much too!:

Prince - Raspberry Beret - ASTRO-ZOMBIE

LOL!! I posted the same video and that whole Dorian Grey thing, hum, yes something very strange amidst there! he was, is, and probably will always be a strange one! But we love him!

I remember watching this, like 30 years ago! He was SO shy and nervous. That interview must've been painful for him. (And Dick Clark too, I guess.)

MsMarvalus said...

Anotherloverholeinyohead is my jam...I had that posted and then listened to Scandalous and had to make a decision...you know which one won...

There are only a handful of folks that I would pay money to see...Prince is probably at the top of that list (and I have!)...

I see someone having fun with this theme. :-)

I'm waiting for my cease & desist letter. LOL

I wanted my hair like his in that AB clip. Raspberry Beret always reminds me of my days in the now de-funct Summer Youth Program in NYC. I love that song so much!

Damn that Prince for being so litigious! We love you dammit.

MrsGrapevine said...

Yeah, someone played Raspberry Beret, I think this is my second favorite Prince song. I use to do the dance moves, and with my little outfit...

I thought for sure you were going to play Girls and Boys from Under the Cherry Moon. "Rekah Stowe"

My best friend love the second song, "you need another lover, like you need a hole in your head"

I forget how old us he that American Bandstand vid is sweet. lol

He is himself for sure, better to be born that way I suppose.

Wonder Man said...

he is the last of the great black artist

Tha Connoisseur said...

OMG Dorian Grey - that's PRECIOUS! ;)

I think you will be alright with the choice. I had this American Bandstand vid on my blog and it has not blown up or closed my doors as yet!

Invisible Woman said...
