Prince (7th June 1958 - 21st April 2016)

The news that broke in the last few hours of the death of Prince, aged 57 at his home in Minnesota has left a lot of people speechless!

As there is not masses of his music on You Tube (the Purple One was responsible for that course of action!) I've put together a 17 track playlist of songs of his that have been covered and also that he wrote for other people (and one that he co-wrote with a certain member of a famous rock band who was branching out solo).
