What Was THE Song That Brought You Here

Just listening to GB on vinyl and Glam Slam came on... I was reminded that this was THE track that took me from being a casual listner and into an official Prince NPGer or whatever you call the hard core amongst us. I tried to steal the cassette from my older cousin that summer but he shook me down before I left!

Curious what song did it for you?

"Glam Slam" is on Graffiti Bridge?

It wasn't a song that brought me to the Org. It was "I Wanna Be Your Lover" that brought me to Prince in 1979. I was but a wee lad at Target buying a K-Tel record.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

I guess technically it was "Let's go crazy" since that was the first Prince record I ever owned.

Making love and music are the only things worth fighting for.

Its been a journey since Soft and Wet, not quite a straight line. But I'll say somewhere between controversy and 1999 I became tethered for life.

A friend sat me down in the summer of 1987 and made me listen - really listen - to most of "Sign 'O' The Times". And that night, I saw the purple light. I've been a fan ever since.

the first Prince song that i liked was "Sexy Dancer", but i wasnt a fan of Prince at all, yet..."1999" was the 1st Prince song (and album) that i loved, that made me go back and revisit his first 4 albums and fall in love with them as well...

Hearing Jughead on 1999 back in the late 70s converted me. Lifelong fan after that.
A certain kind of mellow.

I’ve been reader/lurker/occasional poster since the very early 2000s, and really don’t remember how I found the .org. I’m guessing maybe a link from AOL, which had a pretty active P community.

Me, I’m not sure there was any one Prince song that made me a fan or a member here. Seeing TMBGITW on VH-1’s Pop-up Video in circa 2001 is my earliest clear Prince memory, though.

Then, in the 2010s, a friend passed copies to me of the Vanity 6 and Apollonia 6 albums and basically Prince’s whole catalogue up to 20Ten, and I eventually got hooked off that.

I was 12, almost 13 yrs old when Little Red Corvette & 1999 were being played on TV and radio. I liked those songs and particularly the Little Red Corvette video. Through the end of 1983 early 1984 there was a lot of gossip about Prince being in a movie that might get a X-rating (gasp!). When the video for When Doves Cry played on TV I was hooked. Great song, great video, and here were clips of this mysterious movie we had heard about. I don't remember which single came out first, When Doves Cry or Lets Go Crazy, but I saw and heard When Doves Cry for the first time when the video aired, soon after that I heard Lets Go Crazy on the radio and video, and the Purple Rain hype went into full speed.

Summary:

Little Red Corvette got me mildly interested

When Doves Cry solidified my fandom.

I believe it was "I Wanna Be Your Lover" that started it all for me... All I can remember is thinking "Who's that girl singing?", I was young, give me a break...

It was 1986 when I saw the video Kiss, I was 8 years old, and from that moment I became a fan of his to the point of going around looking for his old records... cool

It wasn't a song it was Yahoo or whatever was the Google of the mid-90s. AOL probably.

I was 16 in 1991. Not from a musical family or upbringing in the slightest, therefore no prior influences.

Then I heard Cream on the radio. Then I saw the video. I’d never seen anyone so cool in my whole life.

Literally a life changing moment for me. Game over!
