What Prince tracks are Rolling Stones infuenced?

Beatles, Beatles, Beatles.
It's always Beatles, Beatles, Beatles.....
What about the Stones?
Can anyone name a Prince song that sounds like one from the Stones?

Ok I'll start."Party Up"
I think Prince was listening to the Stones before he wrote it. I know it's funkier than any Stones song, but I hear a little Mick & Keith in that track.
Does anyone else?????

Fury has a Beast Of Burden vibe, but the same can be said for Girls And Boys too, I guess.

Prince did cover Honky Tonk Woman on The Undertaker, so at least he digs the Stones somewhat. Didn't he cover Brown Sugar at some point? He should have.

he also did Miss You at an aftershow in London in 88. Ron Wood got up to play. I believe "witness 4 The Prosecution" is also kinda Stones-esqe.

the end of the long version of "i could never take the place of your man" always reminds me of the end of "can't you hear me knockin'?"

and "little red corvette" reminds me of "tumblin' dice."

Yeah, that's right. I have the boot. Prince doesn't know the words, so he kinda sings "Mumblemumblemumble... Miss you. Mumblemumblemumble..."

I can agree with that.

I can agree with this too but I don't think it was at all intentional.

I had a very close friend who's a massive, hardcore Stones fan- he even plays Keith in a Stones tribute band- and he never really liked Prince and def. never thought any Prince I was playing sounded like the Stones. I did get him to go to a show with me once- I think it was the NPS tour (with larry and chaka). He actually fell asleep during the show. Now I'll admit that was probably the least exciting P show I've ever been too, but fall asleep at a concert??? So, in general, NO I don't think Prince has much in common with the Boys.
I myself, do feel some similarities exist between Mick and Prince however. Coolness, business sense, etc.

in some old tapes of prince (like the american bandstand one), prince's stage demeanor is quite a bit like mick's, i think. he later became more james brownish, acourse.

Another thread has just reminded me of 'Hot Thing' which is very obviously Stones influenced. A very 'Mick' vocal there.

maybe, but no,...def. NOT.
Closest Mick ever got to Prince though was "Might As Well Get Juiced" (which was years after Hot Thing)- not lyrically by any means like P, but tempo/rhythm wise, yes, maybe. So then the ? should be, What have Mick and the boys done that sounds like Prince?" lol lol

"Uptown" is basically "Miss You". The same bass line, and the guitars on the verses of "Uptown" are all over "Miss You". Again, from the same album, The Stones's "Shattered" is Prince's "Party Up". At the end of "Shattered", Mick actually says "Don't buy the red album." Which P had flash across his Alphabet St video which read "Don't buy the Black album". Also, at the end of "Shattered", Mick says "Party Up, party up!". Also, the melody line on the chorus of "Erotic City" is the same vocal melody as "Miss You". Aother heavily influenced Stones cut is a song that P wrote amd gave to The Time, "Girl". That song is a direct bite from The Stones song "Fool To Cry" from 1976. The keyboard melody AND the sound of the strings used from the keys on "Fool To Cry', P used in "Girl" from 81. All of thing that I just mentioned, I have ran threads about on here in the past.

I think that 'Miss You' could have easily been a Prince song. I somtimes also think that Jagger himself has attemted to sing like Prince, especially when he sometimes goes into his falsetto singing. There is no doubt that Jagger digs Prince and his music.

While I like about half of the Musicology album,
the other half seems kinda inspired by the Rolling Stones in that they come off as really old.

I would say new position & Hot-thing I can hear mick singing right along
We all want a big hit again because
we want to relive the Hysteria & Pandemonium we experienced
when Purple Rain was Hot. Actually, he doesn't care if it happens again or not.

Except, of course, Prince didn't write Partyup. Morris Day did.

Ain't that just him impersonating Mick?

Sorry, I just disagree and am not deaf. I'm a Stones fan, are you? I've never been at a Stones concert- ever- and thought "gee that sort of sounds like Prince" or vs versa- with the only exception being "Might as Well Get Juiced".

Words & music? R U sure? How reliable are your sources?
I pride myself on being an old school fan, I'd look at my vinyl but it's stored away. I looked at my CD & it say's produced, arranged & composed by Prince. Controversy....eek
either way it's still Prince. smile

This is from Wikipedia:

"Day, who was now in a band called "Enterprise" allowed Prince to have a song called "Partyup" for his Dirty Mind album (according to common but unverified rumors) and Prince would soon return the favor by giving Day the job of lead singer. Day would suggest guitarist Jesse Johnson, who completed the band's ensemble."


Although this is verified by Per Nilsen's DMSR, which quotes Day saying the same thing. It's a cool little story - Prince offered Morris $10,000 cash for the song or help getting a record deal. Morris was broke but wanted the record deal. The rest, as they say, is history.

Wow, that blows my mind. Thanks, I'll have to get DMSR.
So I guess we can say the Stones had a impact on the Minn. Sound smile
