    Prince American Bandstand Debut (1980) by AbzPunkPhoto

    Prince sings “I Wanna Be Your Lover” & “Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad”, Dick Clark interviews Prince between the songs.

    RIP Dick, you will be missed.

    I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS.

    Late 70s/Early 80s Disco Prince LYING ABOUT HIS AGE (he is 22 at this time, not 19) and HOLDING UP HIS HAND WITH 4 FINGERS IN DICK CLARK’S FACE instead of actually speaking the number “4” and acting in general, like a shy toddler in hot pants.

     

  4. St. Paul’s finest.

  6. The Hopefuls - Let's Go!

    plays: 60

    The Olympic Hopefuls* - Let’s Go!

    I can’t believe I just heard this on the radio, I love this song! 

    I found these guys entirely on accident back in like, 2005? I was in St. Paul visiting my parents for Christmas and I saw a local “best of” article about them in the ST. PAUL NEWSPAPER of all places. I dug their matching tracksuits and eventually remembered to look them up ON A COMPUTER LIKE GOD INTENDED. And then had to take 2 steps back and buy their CD in the mail but the point IS this album is a ton of fun and they are so much fun to see live. Even though that Applewick guy left to play bass for Tapes N Tapes.

    I don’t even know if these dudes are still together, but some good times have been had listening to this album.

    *Yes, I know they are just “The Hopefuls” now, but not when this album was originally released back before the official Olympic committee made them change it.

     


  7. A hipster is just a Brooklynite who wishes they were from Minnesota because it’s “more real,” while genuine Minnesotans are exempt from the label.
