Your favourite prince piano melodies

For me its father's song from purple rain and the piece he plays at the beginning of under the cherry moon (don't know if it has a title).
I'm just like everybody else I need love.....and water.

I like those and the piano purple rain he does at the piano the morning after Francis L shot himself. That simple piano piece where he is 'learning' it from Wendy n Lisa's cassette is sublime.

The chord pattern for DO ME BABY, and FATHER'S SONG specifically the version in Purple Rain on that beat up old upright piano ... hands down to me the best things Prince ever did with a piano.

Sometimes It Snows In April

Starfish And Coffee

Raspberry Beret – as played during the Lovesexy Tour 1988

17 Days – version from Piano & A Microphone

Anna Stesia – from One Nite Alone Tour 2002; heck, I'll be happy with Lovesexy Tour-version as well...

Manic Monday – from the Originals album

...and the scene where he 'writes' Purple Rain in the movie.

So many great ones listed here!

Would add Prince's piano takes on A Case of U.

The Ladder

Piano on The Max is so much fun.

Off-topic shout out to Dr. Fink for his rollicking keys on 1983 First Avenue Delirious.


edited to add just saw AvocadosMax had The Ladder, and also Pop Life (how could I have left that off?!) ATWIAD piano, YES!

Oh, and Still Waiting music

Oh, come on, people. It's Condition of the Heart. Duh.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.
