Dirty Mind by Prince (1980)


His third album and by all accounts a masterpiece, Dirty Mind (the song and the album) ushered in the new decade with an entirely fresh sound. I love synth (hence my early appreciation for artists such as ELO, The Who and Manfred Mann and later appreciation for New Order and Depeche Mode) and this album had it in spades.

The first track on the album, Dirty Mind, is still my favorite on the release. The opening strains are epic and suggest the potential that would make Prince an icon in the years that followed.

Here’s the review from AMG and entry in Wikipedia.

And here’s the track for your funk.
