Song of the day: Prince & the Revolution- 1999
In 1982, Prince delivered his first international hit single. It came from the album with the same name, 1999. The song was recorded with three members of the Revolution, originally as a harmony, but later it was decided to pull these apart and start each verse with another member. The song itself is made using the riff from Monday Monday (Mamas and the Papas) and the verse melody of Manic Monday (Bangles). The song reached number 2 in the UK and number 12 in the normal US chart, though it was number 1 in the club tracks chart. Enjoy
