It's good to hear that Hilly kept his original vision alive (County Blue Grass) rather than pander with a punk song - hee hee.

Most underappreciated Prince song ever?

HARD HITTING

This has aways been one of the best forgotten Christmas songs ever. Thanks for playing it, Joe :)
Avatar 11:43am Joe McG:

@pantz: This is the B of "I Would Die 4 U." Ironic, a bit, since the girlfriend is the one who actually dies in this song.

Banana?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44am The Oscar:

I love that this song is pretty much standard ridiculous Prince, then suddenly gets REALLY sad, then swings back with the banana daquiris. It's perfect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46am karlward:

Do you think he was like "Strawberry dai- no. Pineapple dai- no. Damn it. Berry dai- no! Maybe I should just go back to banana daiquiris. OK let's do it." ? 'Cause I do.
