    I just love the third eye girl website and the fact we are getting a song per week. I haven't purchased the video yet but Prince is responsible for the first 4 digital singles I ever purchased and all in the past couple of weeks:

    1) Screwdriver remix: em OK, better than the standard version due to the rock guitar solo but still this is an average tune for me 5/10

    2) Breakfast Can Wait: nice R&B jam reminiscent of C'me On from "NewPowerSoul". The baby vocals at the end are weird, creepy and nice too 8/10

    3) RNR Affair remix: now we are talking. This remix takes an average song and elevates it into a Prince level of perfection. I adore it 9/10

    4) Boyfriend demo: and it keeps getting better and better. Funky, filled up with horns, this is classic Prince and I can't wait for a longer version. My song of 2013 so far 10/10

      New song download "A Girl Thang" is out. This is an acoustic ballad which sounds like it came right out of "The Truth" album. It's just Prince and a guitar. Wasn't too impressed on first listen but gave it a second try and it works. Really nice in a melancholic daydreaming kind of way 6/10

        I am surprised at the rapturous reception Screwdriver is getting among a lot of press. The local NPR music station has put it in heavy rotation (I heard Rock N Roll Love Affair once on there when it came out) and Rolling Stone wrote a gushing review. IMO it is something he could do in his sleep and not as good a rocker as some of the stuff he had on LotusFlow3r.

          Yeah, out of the new songs "Screwdriver" is by far the crappiest one. It sounds like "Peach-the sequel" lol. But I do dig the video though, did u see it?

            Good to see there's a thread about this guy. He's an absolute legend that doesn't get the recognition he deserves.

              Pretty good performances on Jimmy Fallon. Nice of him to throw/break a guitar that wasn't even his after Bambi.

              Is he still into the whole Jehovah's Witness thing? He seems more like he was before these days.

                I haven't heard him denounce the religion, but I think like a lot of religious-converts, he's probably lightened up compared to his early days in the faith.... kinda like Donna Summer wouldn't sing certain songs for years when she became a born again Christian yet in her latter years was singing Love To Love You Baby again because she could reconcile her religion and singing that specific record whereas for years she wouldn't for religious reasons

                    I made a conscious decision to stop listening/buying his songs until the album comes out. I want to have it the old-fashioned way

                      Same here. There seems to be a new song every two weeks, but after 306 songs and no album date yet, I want to wait to hear it in the context it needs to be heard so the album isn't already "old" to me by the time it comes out.

                        I've also done the same.

                                If I could time travel, I'd go to that show. Just watched a video recording of the Purple Rain performance again. I actually prefer it without the strings at the end.

                                    I've been enjoying his tweets. Pretty sure some from the account before were him anyway.

                                      He has embraced YouTube too. He's started uploading live performances.

                                      I can't believe he posted a video on twitter and told people to watch it before his own lawyers took it down. Crazy.

                                        We definitely need more Prince fans on UKmix :(

                                        Anyways, Prince released a new single today - Breakfast Can Wait - and unlike other singles he's released from his upcoming album, it's an absolute cracker and funky as hell!!

                                          He's featured on the song "Givin 'em what they love" on Janelle Monae's album..

                                          the song is okay for me, but his guitar solo is amazing

                                            I thought 'Breakfast Can Wait' was a parody at first

                                                Didn't almost every female star of the 80s/early 90s want a piece of him though?

                                                  Hell I think even male rock stars wanted to test his royal badness.

                                                        Do you think his YouTube police will take his own video down?

                                                        It's okay when the dancing starts. The girl dressed as Prince is probably the best thing about it.

                                                            Prince... hands down an ultimate Legend.

                                                            What would your favourite album be and why? or has anyone got any recommendations?
