SHE'S ALWAYS IN MY HAIR

How come this absolutely awesome song was a B-side? I remember when ATWIAD came out, I loved everything about it, still do, this shoudl have been on that album though - the full extended version. It is brilliant, and having now heard the version from the LOL Tour, it really is such a timeless tune... I love it.

Dont forget Erotic City.

I listened to Feel U Up on my drive home tonight. Another great B-Side.

Prince was the best at putting out amazing B-sides in the 80s
The greatest live performer of our times was is and always will be Prince.

Remember there is only one destination and that place is U
All of it. Everything. Is U.

Yes, this one, Erotic City, Irresistible Bi^#h!

The B sides were HAWT. Could've been put on the albums, easily. I loved those old funky, purple sounding B sides lol cool headbang woot! There are times when I'd choose the B Side over anything on the album.

I've been playing them to death lately. They still sound great, and fresh all these years later. If they were released today, they'd get play.

She'd still be there

Telling me just how much she really cares

I remember back in the day when vinyls were issued and discovering the B-sides....Woaw, my favorites are:

*17 days

*Another Lonely Xmas (I love the live version of St Paul: thanks to the one who recorded it... )

*Hello, Girl, She's Always In My Hair

*God (Instrumental): a pure masterpiece

*Erotic City

*Love Or Money, Alexa De paris

*Irresistible Bitch

Happy to hear it through my full Ipod....I was really happy when The B Sides compilation was issued...Too bad that Another Lonely Xmas was the edit version...but great to get oldies (Horny Toad, Gotta Stop Messin' About) with a good sound!

If I ever play a Prince CD in the car it's usually The B-Sides. I like every track on there. She's Always In My Hair tops them all though, for me.

My all-time favorite Prince song (of all songs, not just b-sides).

I remember taking a bus to Northern Lights Records, back in the day, and buying the Raspberry Beret 12”. When I got home, I listened to “She’s Always In My Hair” for the very first time, and I was blown away!!!! The love was immediate and the infatuation has never worn off.

I had the same reaction to Another Lonely Christmas with the big picture disc. 12 inch B-sides like that trump all others in sound and treasure. Those were the days.

Like the demo's and outtakes it helped shaping the image of an adventorous artist.

B-sides also shaped and glimpsed to future ideas.

It is huh. With the exception of Irresistible bitch and Girl, I've never understood why these songs weren't singles or included on the albums. All high guality and hit worthy.

The post 86 period is different:

  1. Shockadelica
  2. La, la, la, he, he, hee
  3. Escape
  4. Scarlet pussy
  5. Feel U up
  6. I love U in me
  7. Pink Cashmere*

The latter isn't really a b-side, but I wouldn't put 200 balloons on this collection.


The 90's period is pretty much void of any b-sides. B-sides are dead. sad

I love lots of his B-Sides. She's Always In My Hair is my very fave, but Escape is definitely up there.

I like your list.

Personally, I love the remixes of TMBGITW and Letitgo. And I always say if I played for the MN Twins, my walk up/at bat music would be "Rock & Roll Is Alive (And It Lives In Mpls)."

12" vinyl - those we're the days. The clear plastic sleeves for the Lovesexy singles. The SOTT singles with Cat in the peach dress. Man, I miss it.
