I don’t find a lot of paste-ups any more. However, in this time of Covid, the paste and run mentality makes total sense.
I adore Prince, and was beyond thrilled to find this.
It’s brilliantly pasted over a throw-up. I loathe throw-ups.
My fave Prince song, and one of my fave vids….ever!

I’d love to see your fave Prince song/vid. Please post the link & not the actual video in your comment. A Frank Angle taught me that… so my browser won’t crash.
You enter the link, but add 1 character after the link. It will come out a link, and not a vid! Don’t worry if you didn’t get it right. I’ll make it right! Love & Peace!

That is a nice Prince past-up. You might remember I did a parody of “When Doves Cry” called “When Owls Fly”.
Yes!!! I love to see it again! Send link, or can I just search “When Owls Fly” on your blog?
A search will find it, but here’s the link: https://wp.me/p1yQyy-46S
Listening to the bells!!!
…like the Owls do!!!!!!!!! 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣
I adore Prince. I loathe throw-ups… This is the first time I’ve been introduce to a paste-up – and how wonderful that it be the Purple One! You chose an excellent one and for my first wedding.. ahem… we dance to Damn U which still remains one of my (many) fave Prince songs https://youtu.be/Box4XDvBSgE
What a beautiful song, Dale.
You know, ⚡️💥, after getting to know you a bit out here, I see you very much as a person filled with so much passion that you would feel Damn U when someone would make you love them so completely.
I don’t know if what I just said makes sense to you, but in my awkward writing way…. I’m attempting a sweet point.
OMG… Prince is so tender in his performance, of that pretty and passionate song!
What a talent!
On a shallow note, Damn the band looks great. They always had the sharpest most creative looks.
I take it you did not know it? I absolutely love it. When his voice goes way down near the end and then shoots back up… butterflies.
And yes. I think you have me pegged correctly 😉
And yes, he is so very tender. I can’t believe such a small man had such a huge sex appeal (I may have had a dream or two…)
And yes. The band always looked great!
So glad you enjoyed my submission, Sorceress!
I might have to come back and put another 😉
I agree about the part where “his voice goes way down near the end and then shoots back up…”
My legs are shivering thinking about it.
A dream or 2 … huh! I MAY have had a few about …. Robert Plant… LOL. He sure wore some tight pants WHEW!
Great submission! Do feel free to submit again! Also, as this is not an AFA production, you do not have to wait until tomorrow! 😉 😂 😜
Such a range he had… My, my, my.
Oh, Definitely Robert Plant. He was the epitome of sexy (still has some)…
We ain’t dead, are we? Love this!
And yes, I shall come back with another shortly!
If I find another rock star in an alley, I’m going to ask Frank to co-host.
It seems those who followed his blog like this!
He’ll love that!
I miss him!
He’ll love that, too! xoxo
Fab choice, Dale!!!!! xoxoxo
I so love that song…
Of course you do!
“If you ever lose someone dear to you, never say the words they’re gone. They’ll come back.” Prince
He was special. Crazy how he was in so much pain.. his cure, if you will, killed him.
Hi Resa, this is another amazing find and what an artist Prince was. I used to play 1999 as a keyboardist and it always had an effect on the crowds. As for my favourite Prince number however I would just pick out “The Most Beautiful Girl In the World” as another example of his talent and out of this world vocal range.
Figured I’d add the link 😉 Here I am playing Maitre d’ with you, now! https://youtu.be/uFtfrd8_K9k
Love it, Dale!
Maitre d’ away! Love having you here! 😀 xo
Such a pushy broad…
You chose a fab song Tyeth! Love 1999!
He was truly amazing, and left a lot of proof!!
I want to have that on the wall of my living room!!! I think I would choose Mountains as my favorite Prince song.
Good idea! It would be fab inside the home.
Mountains is FAB. He really was a master at progressive reinvention of himself and his band.
Heres the YouTube link for you, or anyone else who would like to hear/see it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WmPeLOLDnAx
Man! That was one I barely remembered. I love that he got Kristin Scott Thomas in the video!
I had to look her up!
Excellent spotting, Thunder!
Got my moments…
Love this song!!!! 🙂
Oh, what a great find, Resa and great song too! My addition: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8EdxM72EZ94 Sign of the times. I also loved the video!
Wow! Great tune! I forgot about it, and I don’t remember ever seeing the video!
Hahaha! I’ve got Oannes Mick Ronson podcast set up to listen to, but I’m suddenly busy doing the Prince songs people have left!
It was a brilliant song and the video was very impressive at the time [design wise] as typography hadn’t been used before in a musical video.
Sending hugs to busy bee Resa, with love and many many kisses!!!! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
Hera was here too!
Love this song, Marina and I hadn’t seen the video either! Woot!
It was a great song… and the video was very popular in the design world as typography hadn’t been used this way in a musical video before (no artist in it, just the words). 😘😘
He was always one step ahead… xoxo
Yes, he was! xoxo
😉 🙂 xoxoxo
I know little of Prince save for his remarkable guitar solos the titles of which I never knew. Splendiferous post for unusual times. ‘…the paste and run mentality makes total sense’ the most worthy sentence of the month. Regards, TOF
Yes, dear TOF, we are def in the paste up and run days.
Sentence of the month! YAY!!!
No applause… please, please!
Well, that was fun. Now what?
Now what? Name three terrestrial animals capable of ‘paste up and run’. Regards, TOF
1 street artists
2 children from 3-6 years of age
3 Severe alcoholics (although they may not run in a straight line)
Did I get it right?
You certainly did, young Resa. For me it would be;
1. An angry mob collective
2. A dyslexic pastor keen on getting more believers to his place of wereship.
3. A bereft lover living at the seaside with no glass bottle within which to place his all-important letter having little choice but to paste said message andleg it.
This art touched me deeply, Resa. I sighed as well. What a way to begin my day. Thank you! xo
Thank you, Amy!
Glad I helped you off to a good start!
(new Gravatar… you are soooo cute!) xoxo
I really love this cause I love Prince , paste up thrown up … I don’t care! When Doves Cry is one of the most beautiful haunting love songs ever and get I get chills when U hear it. The sketch of The Purple One is spot on right down to the fluffy shirt! love this Resa , great find. xoxoxo
I thought Prince was a fab act. Then when Doves Cry came out, it moved him into a whole new realm for me. I think it was the same for many people, as he moved very swiftly at that point, from popular band to Super Star.
I was a great find. It’s raining so I’m sure it is melting away. However, maybe the same artist has another rock star paste up!
I’ll be in that alley on Monday, on the way to the art store!
Look out pencils! Here I come!
I hope Mind is a gorgeous day for buying pencils and scouting wall art. xoxoxo xoxoxo
I was going to put xxoxoxoxo
But seeing as how this is a Prince post let me say https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9tEvfIsDyox
ahhhhh! LOVE!! A little Prince back at you! xo
I had a raspberry beret back then.
Okay.. it was on the purple side of raspberry, and it was a beret.
might have a pic
I hope you find that pic! xoxo
Duh… erase my comment, please. And this one!
Wow – so glad you found – and shared this! Too many favourites to choose from.. one of the early ones is definitely part of the list: https://youtu.be/fPaYtVJouYA
That was fab! Love that song. Definitely on the list!
Again, I’m shallow, but I loved his hair back then.
IT was great hair, how can you resist?
Yeah!! I wonder if ANYONE ever ran their fingers through that hair in a dream?
Mmmm… Don’t doubt it
🕊 x 🕊
Not shallow at all🙂
Excellent find. One of his great songs.
He was so fab!
What a great find, Resa. I love this song of his, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Ub0cMp0uPc Wishing you a happy day.
As Dale said, this song and the whole album are amazing!
I think you should start tagging regions of Toronto for yourself. Turn it into a sort of fashion slum. Where only cool looking sorts can vandal… art the place up.
The artists already look like that! I keep trying to buy the clothes off their backs, but they are not selling.
Again, theft is an option. How tall are you? Shorter the better. The old grab and run. Or do the opposite, whack some stilts on and you’re away.
and leave nude artists littering the alleys?
Have you no heart?
No. Not at all. Just watch Withnail and I and write a review on your blog. Merci!
Okay, but this answer doesn’t make sense.
Hmm, now I wonder if there are naked artists in the movie?
No. You need to watch the film, madam. You’ll enjoy it a lot.
Love “The Morning Papers”. Who am I kidding… I love this album.
I miss him
You didn’t put a song, so may I suggest https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0KpfrJE4zwx
Gracias Resa. With Prince, every song is a classic.
Well, I am back… And I cannot resist Sexy M.F. 😉 https://youtu.be/bfHsF6FKgb4
Such a bad boy in this one 😉
Yes, but he is sooo good at it! (le drool)
And could get away with it!
He cut the androgyny line with the finest of razors!
So true… Women AND men love him
I was going to coat hanger the clogged hose of my vacuum after this vid, but I think I’ll shower instead. 😀
No kidding… I seem to like Prince at his sexiest…
Just posted the link to Kiss under a Holly comment!
Beauty! Was gonna add that one…
I’m so happy you are here today!
True.. me too!
You leave me no choice.
Here is “Cream” https://youtu.be/rrbFQEcpJ3A
Sweating it out over here!
What a BODY of work he has!
Ya know, Thunder, I think the Art Gowns are up his alley, in a wardrobe kinda way.
I hear ya! 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
You know, Sorceress! I think he would have fit right in!
I like to think he would have dressed someone in one of my Art Gowns.
A Prince Art Gown video…. it’s a wonderful dream!
OhMyGosh! That would be sublime!
What a cool art tribute to the great Prince. Love it.
My fave track… I’ll go with the classy Purple Rain.
Thanks for sharing and for inviting our songs 🙂
I was thrilled to find this paste-up. I’m over the moon that people have been commenting their fave Prince songs. Here’s a link to Purple Rain https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvnYmWpD_T8x
