Rick's Cold Blooded should be in a master "COLD BLOODED IS BRILLIANT" thread. Teena Marie's Lovergirl should be on this list; she played Sexydancer mashed with Lovergirl in her concerts.

How does any James Brown record sound like Prince. It's more like Prince sounding like James.

As for TLC, "Waterfalls" sounds more like Prince than "Dear Lie" or "Unpretty" to me.

I agree with you about Prince sounding like James Brown ... But I werent just talking about who inspired who . Hence I put some pre prince songs an artists on the lists. An made the joke

JAMES BROWN - The Work - Get On The Boat - Musicoledgy - Black Sweat - Pretty Man - Lets Work - Act Of God - Sexy MF (wait a min.... I just realised that they are Prince songs)

JB is the most consistent an noticeble influience that you can hear in quite a few prince songs .. maybe IM REAL was kinda inspired by that more keyboard based funk that prince got goin in the 80s ... aS 4 TLC .. Waterfalls an a few others have the sound .. But I personally hear it more in ''Unpretty'' an ''Dear Lie'' to the point I thought he coulda wrote an produced em ... UNPRETTY an MY COMPUTER sound like they came outta the same session

MACY GREY - When I See You - Freak Like Me - Still - an many many more!

It's like, the people who always make these kind of threads aren't true connoissuers of the mplsound to begin with, and they always post shit that doesn't make any sense by comparison.

I'm always interested in something new, especially stuff like this, but those who want to know already know.

Alas, the title is 'prince sound', and his sound ranges dramatically, so I wanted to resist the urge to say something negative, but most of these are fucking stupid. Especially the songs listed by the thread starter.

You're so glam, every time I see you I wanna slam!

I forgot about that Justin song Until The End of Time, a TOTAL Prince knock-off! I wanted to strangle those who didn't know that when I first heard it.

Nelly Furtado's Maneater is another one.

Not at ALL wantin to squelch valid discourse here, but......um yeah.......those are fucking stupid.

I only solidly endorse the man himself when it comes to his "sound". He's simply too diverse and his impact has been myriad on myraid artists........that's laudible...but can be VERY hard to nail down. All pop is derivative in some form.

You don't need to be a '' true connoissuer'' of the mplsound - These are lists of songs that people thing have the ''prince sound'' .. Which maybe ''diverse'' but not so damn diverse really ... cos whatever he does there is a similar sound that is present .. So aint like a various artists sound

alot of people do RnB .. but hardly any have that distinctive prince sound .. same with rock. pop .. funk etc etc .... its simple about songs that you can imagine Prince doing/writing himself

Some of you people take everything way too seriously!

We are talking about music, Not rocket science ... This thread is just a random idea that is ment to be fun. It ain't a well thought out asignment for ''true connoissuers of the mplsound''

I think that alot of the people on these forums are in dire need of sence of humour an personality transplants lol ..

I see alot of snobery,negativity an people playing one up manship games with eachother in many of the threads I have viewed on here ... an personally I see it as small an they sound more stupid than the people they are attempting to correct ... HUW KAIRS if she spelt eMANSIPASHON wrong? .etc. .. If I can understand it an it makes sence to me thats all that matters.. & POUR GRAMAR an SBELLING don't mean that she/he ain't bright an with valid opinion .. an GOOD GRAMMER an SPELLING deffo don't mean that they are bright an have worthy/valid opinions .. Music is an emotional thing .. So emotional inteligence is the most important kind of intelect required to talk about music with passion. Rather than talking about it like is a clinical operation ............. you ever heard of the sayings?

''If you ain't got nothing nice to say .. shut up!?''

If you don't like what you are watching, hearing , reading .. just turn it off or stop reading ..

If you do? .. enjoy the the tread an the great suggestions of songs people think have the prince sound
