This song was written by Prince in 198y in the height of his popularity. It was originally intended for the group Apollonia 6 but a falling out with Apollonia and a crush on singer/guitarist Susanna Hoffs changed that. Hoffs was the lead singer of The Bangles and rumour has it that in hopes of getting into bed with her he offered the song to The Bangles. It became The Bangles’ first hit, reaching number two on the charts.
Here’s the Bangles with Manic Monday.
