Writer Mack Rawden of Cineblend.com, a celebrity news website, has compared the music of Prince and Michael.
In his article, he states that Prince is a very gifted musician, whose two best songs were recorded by other people – ‘Nothing Compares To You’ (Sinead O’Connor) and ‘When Doves Cry’ (Quindon Tarver). He added that these are more memorable than Prince’s entire catalogue.
He says that Michael’s best work was done in an eight year period when he gave us ‘Bad’, ‘Off The Wall’ and ‘Thriller’, and that, they are three world class albums which will still be played in a hundred years time. He adds that songs on these albums are as fresh and memorable now as they were decades ago and that they are catchy, perfectly crafted and bordering on brilliant!
Rawden also includes that Michael was the first black artist on MTV with sparkling songs and highly choreographed masterwork videos.
“Michael Jackson…”, he says, “…is ‘filet mignon’ compared to Prince’s microwave riblets.”
Rawden also adds that he thinks Prince is slowly fading from the public’s consciousness, while Michael will remain immortal.
