Best background music

You know that jam that you can tune in and out of like an old rerun of your favorite show? It can just exist with whatever you are doing and vibe along.

As of late, Billy's Sunglasses. Plus, I do want to know where he got those glasses...

Anyway, it makes me smile. Playful.

There's a really really long rehearsal of Alphabet Street from Sabotages Lovesexy rehearsals boot that has been my travelling music all over the world. I don't know if I would call it background as i'm usually wearing headphones - but instead of listening to an airplane engine or bus engine or whatever, I pop it in and stare out the window - it doesnt have to draw my full focus. I absolutely love it music

N.E.W.S. makes a really good background music, if that's what you mean...

I like them all! It's such a great album for chilling/reflecting/creating... If you listen carefully, in the middle of West, you can hear Prince's voice in the background. Listening to it now music

The Vault OFFS was something I could/can put on anytime, just blended with any mood day or season. Such excellent musicianship. Love how Prince always put musicians together to create.

He's usually not that much of a "background music" type of musician. His music says "LOOK AT ME" written all over it. Usually atleast. However, from the 90s up until now he has occationally had a few background music type of songs.
