    1999

    When that song by Prince came out, I thought 'ooo! When it's 1999, I will play it!'.

    Once 1999 came around, I got so sick of it because it was played OUT and it quickly ended up becoming the biggest cliche' for New Years' Eve for me. I just didn't want to hear it. "Yeah I know. Funny. It's talking about 1999 and it's 1999. The irony".

    After Jan 1, 2000, the song seemed so out of date but now it's back as a nostalgic feeling of back in 198--- when was it, 83? 84?.

    So, was anyone else here sick of the song in 1999?

    No...I had been looking forward to 1999 ever since the song came out! With everything going on about the change of centuries and all, it was great! At our New Year's Eve we had, we put together great music from most of the eras of the 20th century...turned out great! We had several versions of 1999 to play also!

    I wish we did that at our party! Sounds like a cool thing to do! Did you play medieval music too?

    I remember thinking..1999..that is a looong way off. Now here we are 2008!!!

    Didn't New York want to use his song for when the ball dropped and Prince denied them?

    Re: 1999

    I used to play that song after "Auld lang syne" at every New Year's Eve dance I played. Then came New Year's Eve 1998, and I didn't have a gig....DOH!!!! It's not one of my favorite Prince tunes but it is Prince, it can't be that bad

    I really like Prince and anything he puts out there but that song is my least favorite for sure.
