Weekly New Wonders Playlist #8 of 2023

Today, April 21st marks seven years since Prince’s passing. I didn’t officially board the Prince train until 1982 when I saw the video for “Little Red Corvette’ on MTV at which point I fell in love. Did I regularly practice doing the immaculately foxy little dance he did during the bridge in the video in my teenage bedroom? Okay, maybe ( aka yes and badly). And yes, I customized my purple bike helmet to pay tribute as I rolled through the streets ( a guy once yelled out his car window at me “Let’s Go Crazy!”, which, you know, credit where credit is due).

I have had a Prince quote taped to my computer for years and continue to find its excessively confident you-do-you-ness inspiring and applicable to many life situations unrelated to music:

“I never wanted to fit in with my music, whatever the trend was, I usually went in the opposite direction”

In the spirit of that purple philosophy, I rapturously present the latest WEEKLY NEW WONDERS PLAYLIST featuring the absolute finest new tunes that have crossed our path over recent days. They are lustrous, lovely, and all heading in their own direction. Listen below on Soundcloud or Spotify!

And the ride, I say the ride is so smooth, you must be a limousine…

P.S. You can read more about my (somewhat) over-the-top passion and (overly)romantic long-term obsession with “I Would Die 4 U” here!).
