I remember the year when I started thinking Prince was ****. It was 1989.
He did the soundtrack album for the movie Batman. It was ludicrous.
The US singer-songwriter's sprightly fusion of pop and funk was completely inappropriate for the Goth-flavoured flick.
Batdance? It was more like a Batprance.
Batman don't prance, yo.
I wanted The Cure to do the soundtrack, to the point that I would actually play The Cure's Disintegration album while watching Batman on video.
Admittedly, I wasn't in a good place mental health-wise at that point in my life.
Prince's last big hit was The Most Beautiful Girl In The World, way back in 1994 - 20 years ago.
