MMM: Celebrate Good Times

Today's mood music was a no brainer. Although he's been featured before he's my favorite artist and you really can't ever get too much of him. We're revisiting this artist because yesterday, June 7, Prince Rogers Nelson a.k.a. Prince turned 51.

With so many great songs to choose from, I wasn't sure which one to post. The choice was easier than I expected since it's nearly impossible to find any of his vids just floating around on the internets. In fact, I couldn't even find an embed link on the legitimate sites that worked.

Luckily, is home to the video of choice. I thought playing 1999 for his 2009 birthday might be a bit of a cliché, so instead I chose this tune released in the summer of 1989. It's a funky little jam and coincidentally it's from one of my favorite summer films of the time, Batman.

Click on either the title or the photo below and you'll be treated to a blast from the past.

I hope you had a happy birthday Prince. I hope everyone has a great week.

  1. I'd completely forgotten he'd done a Batman soundtrack. Thanks for the tribute :-)

  2. No prob. Yeah, I think a lot of ppl forget his Batman soundtrack. I'm one of those freaks that has all his albums, even those crazy ones he did to get out of his contract.

  3. I've been saying that I need to get the Batman soundtrack for 20 years now. I wouldn't say I'm a Prince lover, but I thought it was fantastic and probably played Batdance a million times. Of course, I was 13 at the time, so nostalgia helps...

  4. I still find myself whipping out this "old chestnut" of a CD for a listen now and again. Partyman and Batdance are always fun. Plus I like hearing random quotes from the Joker. You could prob find it in a used bin for a few $$.
