Listen To Prince's Incredible Original Demo Of Manic Monday!

| Filed under: Music MinutePrince

Wow, wow, wow.

Before The Bangles recorded Manic Monday, turning it into a big '80s hit, Prince, who had written the song, actually recorded it himself along with the girl group Apollonia 6.

He eventually, handed it off to Susanna Hoffs and the rest of the girls because he wasn't sure if Apollonia 6's vocals could pull it off, but before he did that, he left a bit of a gem behind.

In this recently discovered demo (above), he collaborated with the girl group on the demo, sounding as flawless as ever.

The audio (above) is not the best quality, but you still get a taste of that Prince flavor. And it's oh so yummy. PRESS PLAY (above)!!!

    Apollonia 6 is the equivalent to 95% of the "talent" out there now.

    The Bangles did the song justice… It would NOT have been the song it is today had anyone else sang it…

    This is not "recently discovered". It has been circulating since the Purple Rain days.

    The Bangles made the tune really fly, and likely made Prince far wealthier as its author.

    um…that was awful. Good call giving the song away.
