Prince Song "7"

I can't believe it. I actually heard "7" on the radio today. I have NEVER heard that song anywhere other than on Prince's cd. I was shocked but it was so great to hear it!

The only songs I ever heard here in germany are Purple Rain and When Doves Cry. They really should play him more often and not just the songs everybody knows.

For real? Here in Italy, at least in my city (Padova), quite regularly the radio stations play his most popular 80's hits along with some 90's / 00's stuff like Diamonds And Pearls, Cream, Gett Off, Sexy MF, Gold, The Most Beautiful Girl In the World, Betcha By Golly Wow, The Greatest Romance Ever Sold, Musicology or even Call My Name and Cinnamon Girl...

I haven't listened to the radio in years. I can't stand the jibber jabber that goes on between songs.

I was just a kid at the time, but i remember hearing that song before I'd ever bought the album (at 17 years old)

It got a bit of radio play back in the day as a regular top 40 type hit. It's one of the handful of songs i remember hearing and enjoying as a kid (*that were modern; my fam is old old old school)

"7" made the Top 10 in the States and it still never gets airplay.

I grew up in the San Fernando Valley. I distinctly remember hearing this song on the radio growing up. It got ingrained like so few songs have.

That was 93/4

An incredible trip through Prince in all space and time conjuring up mysticism and the book of revelation.

I wish i knew the original running tracklist. It seems so cut up even though there's little of a discernable story

I used to hear it quite a bit now only on my playlist. Funny though my Kittie we got him in 2016, his name is Seven after not only the song but my day June 7th and well of course Prince's birthday

Because WBR no longer plays stations to play it.

You do know that’s why radio plays pop songs, don’t you?
