Prince has died | The Tylt
Prince, the influential and sometimes controversial music artist, has died. The outpouring of condolences and tributes on social media from artists, actors and musicians from around the world are a testament to the kind of influence Prince had on the industry.
As part of a tribute let's ask a question that music nerds around the world have asked themselves at some point. What's your favorite Prince song? We've narrowed the debate down to two: #PurpleRain or #WhenDovesCry
When Doves Cry was the lead single on the 1984 Purple Rain album. As a testament to Prince's musical genius, it's one of the rare pop singles that doesn't have a bass line. Prince didn't even need a bass line to write a hit song!!!!
Purple Rain is the title track on the same album. It's a musical combination of rock, pop, gospel and orchestral music. Rolling Stone placed it 143 in its top 500 songs of all time.
