Prince: Manic Monday

While it’s fairly common pop knowledge that Prince wrote “Manic Monday”—which ended up being a breakout tune for The Bangles—almost nobody (except the band) had heard his 1984 demo, until now. Along with archival footage of Prince rehearsing for his Purple Rain tour (which occurred the same year he wrote “Manic Monday,” and countless other songs), the original version has been released—some 35 years later. This song, along with others Prince penned for other artists (including “Jungle Love” for The Time, “Love… Thy Will Be Done” for Martika and many more) is on Originals which is available on limited edition white vinyl.
