Tags: ABBA, Amy Winehouse, Bruce Springsteen, Doe Maar, LCD Soundsystem, Lianne La Havas, Outkast, Prince, Sufjan Stevens, Underworld
Prince’s second album pointed to the future and sounded more accessible and danceable than the year old debut. Could Prince deliver on his promise?
List, Prince, Review
by A Pop Life Panel
The A Pop Life panel has pondered the question which Prince performances resulted in the best live bootlegs. Bram, Edward, Erwin, Leon en Vincent went to work and came up with the ultimate list!
In 2014 Prince released two albums in one day, using Warner Bros. as the record company! The story on PLECTRUMELECTRUM and ART OFFICAL AGE!
In 1994 Prince, using his old name, released the album Come. Prince was buried and the general public didn’t understand at all. The story on a forgotten, great album!
Which soundtracks have I listened to the most and are among my favorites? From Saturday Night Fever to Twin Peaks: the world of the soundtrack!
Tags: Angelo Badalamenti, Curtis Mayfield, Ennio Morricone, Ibrahim Maalouf, Isaac Hayes, Kendrick Lamar, Prince, Public Enemy, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Soundtrack
In 1984 Prince dominated the charts. His album, movie and tour Purple Rain were everywhere. Prince had finally arrived at the place he wanted to be: world domination!

In 1989 Prince planned to do things a bit more releaxed, until he received a phone call from the producers of a movie. He couldn’t resist. The story behind the hit record Batman!

Concert, Death, Prince, Review, Tribute
5 years ago I witnessed Prince for the very last time in concert, in Antwerp. Once again, it was an unforgettable night in the presence of the genius hailing from Minneapolis. A look back at a fantastic concert!
In 1984 I was introduced to the true genius of Prince. There is a life before and after When Doves Cry. Tribute to the best single of all time!
