Musical palate cleanser, y’all got about 10 seconds to get to the dance floor edition.

If this doesn’t make you shake your ass a little bit, there’s something wrong with you.

Bonus clip, from Purple Rain

I always thought The Time smoked Prince in that movie.

  1. Absolutely – The Time was one of the most under appreciated groups of the 80s era of R&B, sort of like Gary Pinkel …

    I don’t know if I’d use the word “smoked”. That movie was dreadful, but the performances by both Prince and The Time were terrific. It’s hard to capture the energy of a band for a movie, but they accomplished it in spades for that film. And? Morris Day stole the movie with his “acting”.

    Thanks for the nuggets.

  4. I saw Prince play Philips Arena in 2004 and The Time were the surprise opening act. After they played, I was worried because I didn’t know if Prince could surpass his opening act. But then Prince did his Prince thing and totally killed it. By far the best live show I have ever seen.

    Purple Rain is the story of a funky bandleader at a hot nightspot who’s unceremoniously displaced by a midget upstart with a funny-looking guitar.

  7. “The Time smoked Prince in the movie” – let me borrow a phrase from our football analytics folks – small sample size.

    Also, The Time were basically an alternative outlet for Prince’s music anyway. However, in only a reality that can be spawned out of Prince, the rivalry was real.

    I love the Time, but the song “Purple Rain” may be the perfect rock anthem. Relatedly, I’d like to hear Prince someday do a cover of “Freebird.”
