We´ve had a couple of "Martha" threads in the past and that name popped up a couple of times in Prince´s songs. There was even a thread where Michael Bland answered some fans´ questions regarding Martha. lol

Look them up, especially the one with Michael´s answers.

By the way, his orgname was ebonyrhythmbuddha and his threads were really informative. This was before Prince passed away and I was suprised to see him post on the org.

Look them up... Can just post it here it's not some big secret. So pretentious some people are here on the org...

She's not real.

What?

lol I'm diggin' the scene. Yeah, baby. Then, I hope he didn't swallow it. lol

I don't hear it. You must have the rare Wrigley Remix


Hilarious, all of this. I was gonna guess Juicy Fruit Remix, but turns out it was the Charms version.

I must say, Juicy Fruit pack is the perfect color for Diamonds and Pearls era. biggrin

It was the era that started it all for me. I was 19 and never cared about Prince before, except for ´When doves cry´. I asked a friend to record something of Prince for me (he was the only fan I knew) and he recorded a tape with Diamonds / Symbol album almost complete. In the beginning, I disliked, but I liked ´Gett off´ a lot because of MTV, so I decided to play the tape until I got there (if it was today, I would have probably saved ´gett off´ and deleted all other MP3 and would never become a Prince fan). I was a metal guy, so falsettos and keys were versy strange to me. But, while the tape was rolling, I started paying attention to how tight that band was, the guitar solos, arrangements, and some songs. After that, I bought The Hits and now I am here smile

.

Still love to see Prince as a bandleader of a big, tight band. NPG is still my fave band (Ok, dont care for Tony and Game Boyz). Rosie was great.

.

And, if I was asked to draw a statue of Prince to be put in a public place, I would draw something of that era, with the yellow clothes and Cloud, even knowing that his Purple Rain image represents him more smile

The album could be released today and you wouldn't know or care which decade it's from. The recordings are fresh and full of life. The Symbol album and many others sound like this to me too.

And I think Symbol is one of his most underrated albums. Such a great collection of good SONGS, from different genres. Always wonder how things would have been if ´7´ was chosen as the first single. WB was right on that one :/

Divine intervention released "7VEN" when it was suppose to. Ironically it still reached number 7V3N on The Billboard Hot 100.

7 was a huge flop whereas Sexy MF and MNIP were top 10 hits in Europe.
It would have been a commercial mistake to release 7 as the lead single.
.
Nowadays, you can see on YouTube that Sexy MF has twice the number of views than 7

Yes, Cream sounds like a 80's hit, whereas Gett OFf sounds like a 2001 hit.
Money Don't Matter has background vocals like if it was in the 50's or 60's

Didnt know about it, but anyway, "7" is a lot more catchy than ´My name is Prince´. I love ´My name is Prince´ but it´s a song that you cant imagine too many people singing along too. The lyrics were too much self indulgent.

It's subjective, of course, but I personally think "7" is a standout great song on a spectacular album. From the so, so fine Damn U to the Sacrifice of Victor to fun songs like The Continental and I Wanna Melt With U.

Melting, melting... lol So much to like!
