Let’s Go Crazy - BBC 6 Music, Best Album Opener

Let’s Go Crazy has got through to the semi-final on Steve Lamaq’s BBC 6 Music radio show. It’s up against Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit. Thought you all might like to vote.

Yep lost but even being in the last 4 was pretty good. Perhaps we need to do a poll on here for Prince’s best album opener - there’s lots to choose from.

Eye liked it when he opened an album with a non-single release track. Like Eye Know, The Future, Cristopher Tracy's Parade, Around The World In A Day and Can't Stop This Feeling I Got.

lots of great ones to chose from but I'll go with

1. ATWIAD - Let's us know right away that this isn't a Purple Rain sequel.

2. When eye Lay My Hands on You - Great song which leads off one of his most under-rated albums IMO.

The winner of this was the Stone Roses? Seriously? How the heck was Welcome To The Jungle not in the finale? Or Whole Lotta Love?
