A Quiz 2 C How Well U Know Prince

Rave Un2 The Quiz Fantastic

 

Dearly beloved, 

We are gathered here today to take a quiz about Prince. 

No other musician in history can claim the same throne as His Royal Purpleness. Some can cite more commercial success, but none have had the same streak of consistently excellent and groundbreaking albums. Whether you like Prince or not, his work is undeniable.

Speaking of not liking Prince, we are not here for any Prince slander. If you're not down with the funk, keep it moving. There are other quizzes for you. This one is for us. The believers. The ones who know. 

We'll present you with a series of multiple-choice questions, you provide us with the answer. It's as simple as that. Anything you guess incorrectly is just a reminder, that's all. So have fun, and when you're done, put some purple vinyl on the record player. 

  1. Our fav was born June 7, 1958. What's the name on his birth certificate?
  2. When Prince's father threw him out, the Purple One moved in with which future bassist in Prince's band?
  3. Please name Prince's first major hit single in the United States, which reached number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 on January 26, 1980.
  4. Choose the option with the correctly-ordered albums.
  5. What is the name of Prince's bodyguard who cameoed in Purple Rain as a bouncer?
  6. Which of Prince's songs drew the ire of future second lady Tipper Gore, who would then start the Parents Music Resource Center?
  7. Name for us the standalone sequel to Purple Rain, in which Prince owns the Glam Slam Club.
  8. Who joined Prince's band first, Wendy or Lisa?
  9. After half a million copies were pressed, Prince had a spiritual awakening and canceled the release of which album?
  10. Prince changed his name into an unpronounceable symbol due to a dispute with which record label?

How well do YOU know Prince - Prince did not write Stand Back. Stevie Nicks wrote it and she called Prince to let him know that she "borrowed" from Little Red Corvette and asked him to come set of the synth for her, which he did. This did not give him a writing credit. The answer to the last question is wrong.

From Songfacts.com: Though Stevie Nicks is the sole credited writer, she later said the song "belongs" to Prince because he wrote and recorded the synth parts that make it so memorable. …

You got 11 out of 11

Well done! Now it's time to go listen to "When Doves Cry." For obvious reasons.

6 out of 11...where I really feel bad is the LAST question! I knew he wrote "I Feel For You", "Manic Monday" and "Nothing Compares to U", but I didn't know he'd written "Stand Back". I guessed "Manic Monday" when I should have selected 'All of the above'.

5/11. Know some of his music but not really a fan.

5/11 I'm a fan of his music but never dove into the trivia. No surprise Tipper Gore hated Darling Nikki, it's a really raunchy but really fun song, so naturally I learned how to sing it.

I had no idea Prince wrote all of those songs for those artists.

9/11, I remember Prince was playing a concert here in SoFl on Easter Sunday 1985, at the old Orange Bowl. Caused some controversy. would have liked to have seen him though. 1999/Purple Rain are my two favorite albums of his.

I miss that exquisite talent:(:(

6/11 - shulda did better but darn who would know his bodyguards name - GEES!

Drove past his house many a time in my courting days on my way to Hutchinson

" Drove past his house many a time."
---------------------------------------
That is cool.
He also owned an estate in Turks/Caicos, which resold after his passing.
You can rent it for $14,000+ (depending on amenities chosen) a night/day. It sleeps 34, so if one divided that equally it would only be $425 a person, LOL!

he lived a excellent very short life in my 2 cent opinion - talent long gone

well amenities...a well behaved lady:) who knows how to make huevos rancheros and endless tunes from him

and then some Woodford Reserve:)

Yes. Such an unfortunate loss of talent. It is touching though that individuals (Stevie Knicks for one)honor him. I love her recount on her memories of Prince.


Stevie is one of my favs! 😉

7/11 I always enjoyed watching his music videos on MTV. A very talented musician and songwriter.

Prince didn’t write Stand Back by Stevie Nicks. He inspired it.
