Hey there, I saw that you left a message on my last.fm wall.. thanks for the compliment, you seem pretty cool as well! It appears that we have the same taste in music.. I mean, the S.O.S. Band, Rick Springfield ánd Prince?! Say no more.. ;) hmm, I think we totally should have a jam session together one day.. I heard that you were quite magnificent with your fingers on a keyboard. x
Cool man, I think you'll enjoy them. I think History with Blood on the Dance Floor is as good as any of his stuff. He was on fire at that time.
Yeah, Prince is doing a good job this last year for sure. Some very good material and even though I am still unsure how well Zooey Deschanel and Prince mix, it is the first time he is actually taking advantage of how many current, relevant and talented musicians love him! He needs to do this more, get out there and produce a bunch of people who are not just proteges hanging around his house. Get on a collaboration with Frank Ocean, The Weeknd or The-Dream. Finally cut a single with Beyonce for pity's sake! I thought the Janelle Monae track was a big, big step up. I am hopeful he is coming around to the idea that there are a bunch of super talented new people right now in R&B, Soul and Funk.
Also, hoping that the new MJ album will be good!
Hey I think we had a few chats back on Prince.org some years back about your writing on the drug references on Lovesexy (?), anyway good to see you on here. Anyway given our rather similar tastes I think you will enjoy these couple of things. First, here is a large and frequently updated and carefully ordered R&B/Soul/Funk/Rock n Roll/Blues/Jazz/Rap that I am very proud of. The range of artists covered is very large and pleasing. I think you will enjoy it: http://open.spotify.com/user/1155763365/playlist/59Glm1gVQhWGx4KvZbzQXy Secondly on the MJ note here is a rather pleasing alternate version of History that re-orders things and adds in the Blood on the Dance Floor stuff. I think it turns it into a much stronger album and shows how strong his 90s stuff really was. http://open.spotify.com/user/1155763365/playlist/2qzidh7S0H00xUT7geyGMu P.S. how do you feel about the new Prince stuff? Breakfast Can Wait is pretty boss.
Oh, i hate Mariah - so annoying. She thinks she's IT. She would try and put her own twist on it and ruin it. I don't usually like covers, unless they are spectacular.
I've been trying to get my friend into Zapp, but he's got a stigma against them just because he prefers Marvin Gaye's version of "I Heard it Through The Grapevine". He will like them when he actually listens to a couple of their songs I secretly included in his spotify playlist haha.
i'm afraid that was no coincidence. a long time ago i tried to 'like' a val young page on facebook, but there wasnt one created. until recently i saw you like the wikipedia page of hers that facebook implemented as a fan page. then i thought to myself that ive only listened to her album once or twice and i ought to have another listen.
I don't like him very much, I like just some of his songs ;P You know when I was kid I loved him and now I have sentiment to Chris Brown but it's everything ;P and thank You a lot for accept me and compliment ;D Your taste is also great , really ;D
Haha, totally missed my comment notifications part.
Yeah, I actually heard his stuff on Top Gear and I think that show has some of the best music in the world sampled for their reviews. Ever since I was able to identify his songs, I've been hooked ever since. I was debating whether or not to download his whole discography. I like his slow, mellow stuff. I doubt all his songs are like that. So I'd have to pick and choose I guess. Time-consuming.
