The B Side:

Those of you who have, or have heard of, the Fun With Vinyl collections that I released prior to starting this blog, may be noticing that some of those songs are starting to show up as posts. Yep, everything that was in those collections will eventually turn up here in a post as part of the original vinyl configuration as it was released.
Today’s post is the 12” release of Prince’s #1 Hot 100 hit “Kiss”. It’s from the ‘Parade’ album of 1986 that served as the soundtrack to the movie ‘Under The Cherry Moon’. The B-Side is the extended version of “Love or Money”. This track has never been made available on CD. “Kiss” was the Hot Shot Debut at #52 for the week of February 22, 1986. In its 9th week on the chart it hit #1 and held that spot for two weeks. One of the songs it kept out of the top spot was The Bangles’ “Manic Monday”, a song penned by Prince as well. So, for the week of April 19, 1986, Prince was the songwriter of the #1 and #2 songs for that week. “Kiss” also held the top spot on the Hot Black Singles chart for four weeks and on the Hot Dance/Disco chart for two.
