Album: The Hits/The B-Sides
My second album to take to a desert island is Prince’s The Hits/The B-Sides. If this is disqualified by the fact that it is a 3-CD compilation, then my alternate choice is 1999.
Prince is one of those artists who can’t fail in my eyes. The man has so much talent, that even when he released an album just to fulfill and get out of a contract, two of the songs hit #12 or better, and the album as a whole received rave reviews.
Now, there isn’t a Prince song I’ve heard that I don’t like, which makes it difficult to choose just one to present here. Still, I have my favorite of his below. By “favorite,” I mean that it stands out only slightly from so many others.
Note: The video has no audio, because Prince doesn’t want his songs on YouTube. Sorry.
