"Still A Thrill" No Prince involvement?

I've read the credits, no he isnt credited, But it sounds so Princely!!

But Besides, has anyone noticed the similarities between that strange humming at the end sounds very similar to the end of "Shocadelica"

I think that part is wayyy to strange to be just a coincidence!!!

Andre Cymone was heavily influenced by Prince and that is why "Still A Thrill" sounds Prince-ly.

Andre Cymone was the youngest of six children. His father Fred Anderson was a musician, while his mother Bernadette a social worker in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Anderson home soon had an additional member — a young Prince who left his own home due to conflicts with his stepfather. Prince and Cymone started a cover band in high school called Grand Central (later renamed Champagne) which also included Cymone's sister Linda and schoolmate Morris Day.

In the late 1970s, after Prince released his debut album he recruited Cymone as bassist for his touring band. He stayed with Prince until 1981, quitting the band over tensions with Prince.

The two later resolved their issues and Cymone went on to release 3 solo albums — Livin' in the New Wave (1982), Survivin' in the 80's (1983), and AC (1985). All are long out of print. His most successful single was "The Dance Electric," a song penned by Prince from the album AC.

Cymone went on to become a record producer and is better known for producing Jody Watley (to whom he was married and shares a son) than for the music he released as a solo artist. He has produced and written songs for several other artists, including Pebbles, Lalah Hathaway, Jermaine Stewart and Adam Ant.

That's an easy generalization to make if you don't know the Cymone/Prince history but in reality, Andre is just as much a part of the MN sound as Prince is because he was there from the beginning creating and forming the MN sound.
"In the late 1970s, after Prince released his debut album he recruited Cymone as bassist for his touring band. He stayed with Prince until 1981, quitting the band over tensions with Prince. "

Who wrote that bullshit? They grew up together. Prince lived in Andre's basement. This quote sounds like Prince hired Andre AFTER he recorded his record. Wow. How fanboyish (or uninformed) of the author of this quote.

Wikipedia has a lot of incorrect information. Any person can add to it, whether the info is factual or not. I wouldn't drop all my eggs in that basket.
