I liked 1999 (the song) back in 1982, but did not know who prince was.
When i later bought Purple Rain, for some reason I had the feeling that Prince was also the one who sung 1999.....

So, 25 years and counting wink

Since "Soft and Wet" came out, although I didn't really get into Prince until "1999".

29 years, since 1978. I fell in love with Prince's music when I was 12 years old. I loved the song Soft & Wet, although I thought it was a woman at first. But once I found out it was Prince, and after seeing him for the first time in the Right On! magazine, I have been hooked ever since.

Hmmm...I guess 1983/84. When Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' album came out. I had asked for 'Thriller' for my birthday, and my mom got me 'Purple Rain' instead. I don't know what the heck she was thinking. I was soooo pissed! Then I listened to it...over, and over, and over, and over, and over...I've been hooked ever since.

I'm not a fan of "old Prince". I'm not a fan of "new Prince". I'm just a fan of Prince. Simple as that

around 12 years.
"When Michael Jackson is just singing and dancing, you just think this is an astonishing talent. And he has had this astounding talent all his life, but we want him to be floored as well. We really donĀ“t like the idea that he could have it all."

Since I played SOTT tape in my first "stereo cassette deck" (I hadn't a turntable at that time, not to mention CDs...)

Girls&Boys was the first song I liked a lot, but SOTT made me think to music in a different way. So I should say since SOTT...
