I never cared much about Prince, yet several of you have him on your top 10. Could you please give me 5 tracks I should listen to in order that I might appreciate him more? Thanks!

When Doves Cry
Little Red Corvette
Sign 'O' The Times
Controversy
Girls & Boys
Kiss
The Ballad of Dorothy Parker
Raspberry Beret
Musicology
Colonized Mind

But really, it all depends if on you're hip to the funk.



Add '7' and '1999' to that list as well.

It really is, he could also turn on a dime and get down and dirty with the best of them, a true vocal acrobat. Good genes I suppose. I miss him.

Matthew Bellamy of Muse sounds a lot like him on some songs.

I've heard a lot of comparisons to Jeff, Bellamy being one of them, Thom Yorke being another. I get that it might be sonically similar in some aspects, but as you say it's 'goosebumps every time', there's something spiritual and moving in Jeff Buckley's singing that I can't articulate in anyway at all but it's something I've never got from any other voice but his.

Thanks, Bads. I'd never heard that before. That last note = CHILLS! Beautiful.
