Song of the day: Chaka Khan- I Feel For You

chaka khan i feel for you

In 1984, Chaka Khan recorded a cover of an older Prince song. Prince wrote the song in 1979, actually for Patrice Rushen, but it never appeared on an album of Patrice Rushen, so Prince recorded it himself on the album Prince. Chaka Khan invited Melle Mel to rap, David Frank (The System) to play keyboard and guitar and even Stevie Wonder to play the harmonica. The beginning of the song was actually a mistake from the producer, but it sounded good, so they kept it. It made a hit, number 1 in the UK and number 3 in the US. Enjoy

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

Song of the day: Sinéad O’Connor- Nothing Compares 2 U

Hello everyone,

Here’s the new song of the day!

Today’s song is a beautiful song with a simple clip, but very touching.
The song was written by Prince. And Prince didn’t like the fact that this song was sung by Sinéad O’Connor.
That changed when Prince saw all the money from the royalties! It became a big hit.

The song which became a hit is called Nothing Compares 2 U, and today it’s the song of the day!

Tomorrow a song which is from the nineties! And it was a big hit back then, and it has something to do with classic music…

“Classic music, bleh! Who likes that?”
“You don’t know how many persons enjoy classic music! So shut up!”
