Revisiting the Graffiti Bridge album today for the second/third time. Track is 'New Power Generation.'

"Graffiti Bridge" , one of my favorite Prince Albums and Movie!
@Dalia it's good to see you! yes i am in the same mind set here too. I really feel that Graffiti Bridge was the core of his art, being that it has such a spiritual , I can't even say elements of , cause to me it is a total spiritual piece of stand out artistry..This really strong message, and I also enjoy his theatrical side, The captivating broadway theme running through it. I think that Still Would Stand All Time could be a follow up to The Ladder maybe??

I'm still on this album today.
Elephants & Flowers
I am listening to the track "Gold" From The Gold Experience Album(1995). Some other tracks
on this album: "SHHH", "The Most Beautiful Girl In The World". "I Hate U".

The very first song that got me here ..
This - "Fair to partly crazy, deep down we're all the same Every single one of us knows some kind of pain In the middle of all that's crazy, this one fact still remains If you LOVE somebody, life won't be in vain And there's always a rainbow at the end of every rain."
Papa -Come [1994]
