The sad truth about this film...


The Time had the better song, SHAKE! There is no way that ballad could win out, it was the weakest ballad on the album - Joy in Repetition would have been a closer match, but again, SHAKE! wins.

Serious? Guess you did not understand Prince whole deal during this movie (he became reborn) so anything religious was going to be good. I loved mostly all the songs ... sadly Shake was not on my top list. Liked the one they did called 'Love Machine' much better.

"Shake" is an awesome song. However, "Still Would Stand All Time" takes the cake, just simply through the message it was trying to convey. Prince really tapped into his soulful side on that track. It always brings a tear or two in my eyes each time I hear it

But, I personally think "Love Machine" sucks, I can deal with it in the movie but on the CD I simply press skip.

"I can see in the distance, a beautiful experience..."

Lol I love "Shake".. I think it'd probably stand on its own the most out of the soundtrack, I could see that song being a hit again if somebody covered it today

..or maybe not, lol - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbIm8m8qBgk

Im praying for rain in california so the grapes can grow and they can make more wine.

That was a big leap. Does the OP even know who Beiber is?





R.I.P. Whitney, forever in our hearts. R.I.P. Johnny Otis, Etta James. You will be missed.

Still Would Stand All Time is one of the great underrated songs of the Prince catalog. Mainstream audiences often tend to overlook Prince's brilliant signature vocal harmonies. Disdain for this song is the epitome of the tone-deaf mainstream. I mean, even the London Philharmonic stops what they're doing when those haunting gospel harmonies sing towards the end of the song. Those choruses are testament to how above and beyond the mainstream Prince is as a composer and a recording artist, and how adept a vocalist he really is.
