    Lightbulb 5 Prince songs you won't find on a GH that should convert a non-fan/casual-fan into a massive fan.

    Okay, Prince's catalogue is mammouth, and I can fully understand people being put off or daunted and not really knowing where to start. So if you just have a passing acquaintance with the purple one, then check out these five underrated/little-known songs, which may just open your eyes a little more to his greatness:




    1. The Greatest Romance Ever Sold (1999)


    2. Dance 4 Me (2008)


    3. I Love U But I Don't Trust U Anymore (1999)


    4. Sometimes It Snows In April (1986)


    5. Dolphin (1995)

    2. Forever In My Life
    3. Gold
    4. Fury
    5. International Lover

    I dont have speakers so I cant be sure any youtube clips actually have the right audio so I wont bother.

    I never EVER turn down the opportunity to make a list Matty. Although your list nails it on the head.

    ^^^ Yeah well, everyone please ignore innuendo's list, listen to mine, and then tell me how I've changed your life and opened you up to new musical possibilities. Is that too much to expect?

    Or everyone, you can take my list as the deluxe bonus disc, for those who want to boogie a bit longer.

    Listening now to Matty's list. I can't believe Dance 4 Me is from 2008 sounds like an offcut from 1999.

    Also reminds me of one of my favourite Prince tracks, although it was credited to NPG - 'Get Wild'

    ^^^ What did you think of I Love U But I Don't Trust U Anymore? If that song doesn't break your heart, then it's made of stone.

    Yeah, really lovely. Glad that I've finally gotten around to SISIA, been meaning to listen to that since his passing. I had the feeling that me now knowing that song is like a casual MJ fan not knowing 'Who Is It'.

    What's the backstroy there, seems like a friend passing of AIDs?

    Matty spurred me onto this track when he got me into Rave. Absolute gorgeousness.

    I need to listen more Prince at some point. I have only heard Purple Rain, Partyman and Batdance.

    It's actually about a fictional character called Christopher Tracy from the movie he made Under The Cherry Moon.




    Weirdly enough, he recorded this song 20 years to the day before he died on April 21st 2016.

    Yeah I heard the second bit. It's as weird as George Michael dying on Christmas Day.

    If you want to watch a good B movie, Under The Cherry Moon is hilarious. Intentionally sometimes, but more often than not, unintentionally.
