Help - What Prince Song Is This Mariah Song Reminding Me Exactly Of??

http://www.youtube.com/wa...ncEzU54lIQ

"Angels Cry" by MC. The main hook in the chorus', like at :59 "lightning don't strike..." or 1:12 "true love's a gift..." Those 4 notes are reminding me of what I think is an 80's possibly unreleased song, possibly an instrumental? Faster in tempo than Mariah's song, and maybe it was a sax that actually played that riff in Prince's song, or some instrument.

I know I'm not crazy. Sifting through the endless Purple vaults is a daunting task to try and find the mystery song, so I thought for sure somebody else here will know what I'm talking about. Maybe?

It's a slight bit similar to "Venus De Milo", but not enough that I'd think "Oh...that sounds like Venus" every time I heard it.

LOL No it's not that. I definitely know my standard released tracks inside out. It's the wealth of unofficiality that gets fuzzy. Well I'll do some digging, and hopefully when I find it and reveal it, some of y'al might say "oh yeah, he right!" cool

Tricks are for kids, silly rabbit. I'm serious. No worries, I'll find the song, then you can apologize.

Sounds a bit like "You....light up my life....you give me hope....." from Debbie Boone.

To me, those 4 notes sound a bit similar to a part of "Alexa de Paris".

Have u orgers heard Mariah's new single? It's a cover of I Want To Know What Love Is by Foreigner. I actually prefer her version even though I'm not a big fan of hers.

Her version sounds like a pigeon in heat. It's a horrible remake, and it's a song that should never be touched. It was an instant classic. She pissed all over it.
