It is indeed a Prince of a Day!
It’s Prince’s Birthday today. He would have been 59. and it also marks the start of his recording career. He released his debut single “Soft and Wet” 39 years ago in 1978.
“Soft and Wet” is from his debut record “For You” and was co-written by Producer-Songwriter-Engineer Chris Moon, the man who discovered Prince in Minneapolis and helped him launch his career.
The song peaked at 92 on the Billboard Hot 100 on November 25, 1978, after two weeks on the chart.
So it took a while to catch.
MC Hammer sampled this song in one of his songs, and in the Movie “Unbreakable” (2000), Directed by M. Night Shyamalan, Robin Wright’s character, Audrey, mentions to her husband David (Bruce Willis) that this is her all-time favourite song.
