    The WWE wrestler Chyna died yesterday too, for anyone who used to watch WWF in the late 90's and early 00's.

    Got to admit I was never a fan of Prince, but did like Gett Off plus the whole Batman soundtrack.

    My first serious girlfriend loved prince - lots of good memories to lots of his songs - everytime I hear his songs, I think of her

    Another class artist gone too soon

    ^^ Cooler than mine then...she was into Roxette. Music is funny though, I still smile whenever I hear 'It must have been love' and remember her putting the cassette on when we were in her room...

    :Wink:

    Music is so powerful though. My eldest loves music and I was telling him the other day that music and the memories it will hold will stay with him the rest of his life when he starts exploring life more and girlfriends.

    Like you @FirstHonda - music has always been a huge part of my life and certain songs just bring back memories in clear vision of ex girlfriends and friends and experiences of time past.

    Nothing wrong with Roxette. It must have been love has always been one of my favourite songs and il still turn it up loud today.

    On a different note however (pardon the pun) - tape cassettes. How angry would you get when your favourite song would get all chewed up?

    I hated that! I can't remember how many time I had smacked my National (Panasonic) cassette player for doing that. Although after a bit I learned how to splice tape and used to do a pretty good job in elegantly losing a few lines of the song!

    I have never met anyone else do that - I used to do it and all my friends just used to bin the cassettes. Used to drive me mad when they did that.

    Used to cut strips of sellotape as thin as possible - to find that balance between keeping the ribbon intact and keeping the song. Tried superglue once - that didnt go well

    The roadsides and central reservations of Britain aren't the same without all that tape, caught in the weeds, and blowing in the wind...:construction:
