Last Thursday (April 21), the world was forced to confront the sad, shocking fact that Prince Rogers Nelson had died at age 57 in Chanhassen, MN.
Thanks to his restless creative spirit and attentiveness to the world around him, Prince remained relevant until the very end (as recently as last year we talked about new Prince songs on the Must-Hear Music podcast).
As Billboard grapples with his passing, I’m taking a look at my hometown hero’s extensive, eclectic catalog and highlighting some of the many magical moments in his career. From massive hits to essential b-sides to the best latter day Prince material, we’re running through many of his funky, beautiful and unforgettable songs.
