Thank God, Thriller was a steamy pile of dung.

Perhaps you need to purify yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka.

Mj imo was a better entertainer, his music reached the masses and inluenced pop music more than prince, keep in mind im not saying Mj was a better musician than prince, im saying his influence on music is way more obvious than prince's influence.

for exmpl, im not a fan of either of them but just by their influence on society and music i know way more about Mj than what i do about prince.
I'll agree with you that more people, for instance, cite Michael Jackson as an influence. Although I think it has something to do with how many more covers there are of his songs, he definitely had a great influence.

But Prince plays like EVERY INSTRUMENT, dawg, Literally the guy plays all the instruments himself when he records, then hires people for shows. Even weird ones, like harps and sitars. I read part of his biography and the dude has weekly shows in his house, where he invites random musicians to get together and improvise. He's into his music. I think Michael had a great deal of pressure when he was younger, which led to it being a life-long obligation/way to get money.

Plus his scream was the first scream I ever heard in music... and I tell you what, he could give Rob Halford a run for his money.

The thing with prince is he has like a mystic aura about him that over hypes his music and public persona.
Yea, it's great the dude can play anything, props to him for that but he is not the only musician who can do that.

Like i said earlier, im not a fan of either, i don't know in detail their discography. but ive heard a few songs from prince that ppl call genius and they weren't that impressive.

on the other hand this:



To me is better than anything prince has ever done.

If anybody wants to "Blow my mind" with some prince, go ahead, plz show me how he can top that.

First off..... **** Purple Rain. Just wanna say that, because it's a ****ty song, and that's coming from a Prince fan.

I was gonna post 'When Doves Cry', 'The Beautiful Ones', 'Irresistable Bitch', 'Pussy Control', 'Peach' and 'Guitar'.

But apparently there are zero Prince videos on youtube. That petty bastard.

i found Peach and Pussy control, Peach was good but Pussy control was horrible.

When the doves cry i know, that was a popular hit and it's not bad but MJ's hits are better.

Why do people think just because you play 50 million instruments that makes you better than someone who doesnt play 50 million instruments?

I LOVE Prince but I am just saying... I hate that musical snobbish attitude.

Agree.


I love Prince (he is a genius in his own right)

HOWEVER

MJ is far more talented and has made the bigger impact out of the two.

I don't care how many instruments Prince plays.

Well, they aren't better than people who play 100 million instruments, that's for sure.
