rage: the Prince playlist


Updated: At last rage reveals its plans for its Prince tribute, airing tomorrow on ABC.

Join us this weekend in commemorating one of our favourite musical legends Prince. Our hearts are broken from his passing but his music lives on.

Throughout his career, Prince so utterly transformed the terrain of popular music with his sense of poetry, unbridled sensuality and most importantly funk. He could shred like Hendrix and coo like Nancy Sinatra. He re-imagined what sexiness meant but his versatility and absolute mastery of song craft meant that his vision always cut through the controversy.

Very few artists so deftly straddled the divide between popularity and artistry but Prince nailed it every time and always came out on top. For this, and for all the beautiful music he has given the world, he will be sorely missed.

The colour purple will never be the same again. RIP.

Watch the Prince Special on Rage Saturday 30th April from 10:30-11:30am, returning for the night from 11:30pm on ABC1.
