Its no good!!! I can contain myself no more. I have only 2 more sleeps before I head down to the sunny south and hit London for a night watching that performer of performers - Prince (TAFKAP, Symbol)! I have the outfit - purple trousers, purple top, black shoes and bag. I have the hair - mildly purple and purple ultraviolet temporary colour to put on I have the make-up - purple and silver I have the CDs for the journey down - poor Sita and Tricia who share the car with me I have the excitement - ONLY TWO MORE SLEEPS!!!!!! So, what is your favourite Prince song or shade of purple?
I'm not that keen on Prince but I adore purple, have done since I was little. Real rich royal purple is the best, but any shade including the pale lilacs and lavenders will do. I have loads of purple clothes, a purple bedroom, lots of purple acessories in my house, purple flowers and loads of lavender in my garden, a purple car..... Lesley
I have a mauve lipstick as part of the selection I'm taking with me. I love mauve - its really versatile!
I forgot to mention Purple lipstick, eyeshadow and nail varnish. Lesley
I quite like "When Doves Cry", and I looooove all shades of purple. Was just thinking of respraying my car a deep metallic purple shade. What do you think??
I am dyeing a poodle purple in your honour Gilly!
Oh, oh, I have purple nail varnish too!!!! I like When Doves Cry but one of my favourites is Sometimes It Snows In April - not a well-known song of his but it really moves me everytime I hear it!!!
Yeah!!! Purple poodle!! I must look to see if I have some purple studs to go with the long silver dangley earrings.
I've tried putting on purple contact lenses before, but with my dusky skin colour I looked kinda weird :(
My glasses frames are metallic purple. Lesley
I couldn't think of putting in contact lenses - its just that something about sticking something in your eye. I mean, a finger to get something out is OK but something that sucks itself onto your eyeball - nope!!!
"Raspberry Beret is my favourite! Have a great time!
70% of my wardrobe is purple. My living room is lilac & purple. My mobile phone is purple. My suitcases are puple. and my new car will be purple :-) Oh, yeah... and I like loads of Prince songs as well.
i think it has to be a song i think is called "always in my hair" or something like that
I love Prince. Hard to pick a favorite song. Maybe Kiss or Sexy MF. Larry
And Raspberry Beret. larry
Or maybe Cream. See I told you I couldn't pick one. larry
Mountains Gett Off Parade!
many good songs here...i agree hard to pick:-) but what is the best song that wasnt on a top10 radio list etc....but maybe a B side and not very populare for radio /tv
His last two or three CD's have been very good also. Larry
i went to see him on saturday, he was absolutely superb, although the concert was a little short with no support. i like most of his songs but when doves cry is one of my favourites, i was annoyed he didnt play it or lets go crazy. take plenty of money with you, mens t-shrt £30, programme £15, beer £3.50 a pint.
Thanks Dunk!! I have every intention of getting a program - seen the photos and his "come hither" eyes!!! Might go to the After Party in Indigo2 - he's played quite a few times at the After Party now. The set is different every time and he always leaves fans wanting more!!
Purple Rain, When Doves Cry, I would Die for you and The Beautiful Ones.
Monina - I LOVE I would Die 4U!!
Good thread Gillian! This takes me back. I'm sure you will enjoy the show! :)
I'm sure its going to be fantastic!
Gilly, please take along my purple bowling ball to complete the ensemble.....
And don't forget to wear lavender, lilac or violet perfume. Lesley
Suet - I'm not sure that it will go with my outfit. Heels and a bowling ball is so passé!!
Oh? I heard it was all the rage down the alley....
Could make a good safety device though!! Thwack!
