First time you heard Prince and thought "Oh my God"

Can you remember the first time you ever heard Prince. Was it "oh wow, this guy sounds amazing"? or was it "What the hell is this guy on"?

I remember my cousin buyin the 1999 album back in 82 and i listened to it and thought this sounds Sh*t (I was, at the time, into rock Iron Maiden,Saxon & stuff) but once i listened to it a few times it changed my outlook of it. Then of course came "Doves" followed by Purple Rain soundtrack and I WAS CONVERTED (got my hair cut and everything)







Rome wasn't built in a day
But the earth was created in six
And God resteth on the seventh
Reality is an illusion
Caused by a lack of ALCOHOL
Fact

Actually, I just said "Damn, I gotta get that album (back then we were still in vinyl era) and the song was once again, "Soft and Wet". It wasn't the lyrics but the music itself. Something dif. cool

To be technical, the very time I heard Prince was when I was only really little... I can't even remember anyone. On my dad's old VHS tape of recorded music videos, I'm sure I had seen "1999" while he was recording it... but I had no idea how old I was at the time: Therefore, I'd have no idea.

The first time I remember seeing the tape, I was only 6-7 and when I heard 1999, I thought it was an okay song. That was really before I knew anything about music, so my opinion at that point wasn't "solid".

Then my dad made a 12-song mix on CD, including his favorite hits from the 60's, 70's and 80's. Some of the other songs included Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run", "Paradise on the Dashboard", Lionel Richie's "Dancing on the Ceiling" and "All night long", Irene Cara's "What a feeling...", ironically, Billy Idol's "White Wedding" (ironic cuz i liked him when i was 3 and I think he's a nut these days) and "Stairway to Heaven." The first time I heard "Stairway to Heaven"... it was okay, I guess, I didn't get it so much. Then I heard someone at school try to play it and I got hooked.

But I'm drifting off topic, right after "Stairway to Heaven," he placed "I would Die 4 U".

I can still roughly remember the first time I ever heard. I was instantly taken in by the beat and thought it was totally cool and then "Baby I'm A Star" was directly after it (as in the movie as I found out) and it feel like it was the first song extended.

But that was still before I knew who Prince really was. The song(s) and I were reunited with new meaning when I saw the show at the end of the movie and I was hooked, but part of it really was due to the fact I've haerd the song before and really liked it.
had 2 run away... pride was 2 strong. It started raining, baby, the birds were gone

When I was 9 or 10 yrs old, I used to get really excited when "1999" and "Delirious" played on the radio. I had no idea who was singing the songs, and I didn't even realize that they were sung by the same person. I guess this was a sign that I was drawn to his music. I was 11 yrs old when "When doves cry" came out". I was completely hooked then. I used to sit around and wait for it to play on the radio so I could hit the record button on the tape recorder. I became a die hard Prince fan at that time.

Little Red Corvette - loved the song but thought his dance moves were kind of cheesy then, why wasn't he doing a backspin or breakdancing lol

When Doves Cry was the first "he's soooo much better than everyone else" song for me

Well I mean, he gives you fair warning...but did I care? Nope.

Now boys and girls for the graphic part,
close your ears if you ain't got a nasty heart...
Schoolyard, schoolyard
(Here we go)
Now take a glove, fill it with hot baby lotion
And slip it on,
(Well...)
Pull it tight,
That's what Carrie was like
One stroke and I was gone
Gone I was, it's true

Although I liked Prince from IWBYL, Controversy and 1999, for me this moment was the very first time I heard "When Doves Cry". Hardcore ever since smile

Rock hard in a Funky place. My dad is obsessed with the black Album. Besides My dad introduced me to Prince music at 6 years old in his car. He only played the stuff that was he thought was funky( Black album, Rainbow children, Come,Rave). I would have kild my self if listened to Purple rain and sigh o the times but now i can apperciate.

When I heard him sing, Do you want him? Or do you want me? Cuz I want you. That verse gave me chills. It was during the movie Purple Rain.
