Blog de Musique

This is a music blog. Different kinds of music. And commentary on said music. Most of the files uploaded will be AAC files (because I'm an Apple guy) so you best have iTunes to play them. Sorry if you don't. (If any links are dead, leave a comment and I'll reupload.)

I buy way too much music for my own good and then waste my time talking about what music I've bought on my blog.

Prince "Another Lonely Christmas/4 The Tears in Your Eyes"

Alright, so every year I try to rip this one Prince and the Revolution song off my original vinyl 12" single. And every year, the rip is marred with clicks and pops and I just decide that I don't like the way it sounds. I'm putting it down to the record being old and just worn out and I can't be arsed to buy a new copy. Soooo, I did another transfer tonight. While it's still pretty poppy and clicky, I've decided to keep it. I tried to clean it up a bit. This is it. I don't think I'm going to get a better version unless I find a brand new, sealed copy of it.

The song is Another Lonely Christmas. It's from 1984. It's the original non-album b-side to I Would Die 4 U. The single version of this song is available on his The Hits and B-Sides 3-CD set that was released back in the mid 90's. Only the version on that is the single version. This is the "extended version" which just has an extra verse and a longer ending. And it's just a better version that the single version.

This is, hands down, my favorite Prince song. I remember really liking it when I heard it when I was 10 years old. It's from his best era (Purple Rain-era) and it's just a bummer of a song. And I like bummer songs. So here it is.

Oh yeah, and I also included the original version of 4 The Tears In Your Eyes. Another song that was included on The Hits and B-Sides but in a different lesser incarnation. This is the original version off the We Are The World album, of which it is exclusive to. It's another vinyl rip because I'm not about to pay $100 for the CD.
