Who here remembers or even HAS this record?

I listen to every year about this time, it's kinda sad but I think it's one of Prince's best songs. Not to mention his only Christmas song.

It has to be the saddest Christmas song or am I forgetting one? graemlins/conf44.gif

Heh, heh ... I'm sure I have 2 copies on 45 and half as sure on record. It's pretty gloomy. About lost love, he sees his X loves grown sister ice skating, she's the prettiest of her daddy's children etc, etc. I can't listen to it too often. Plus the music reminds me too much of Purple rain. graemlins/mecry.gif

I had the purple 12" of this. It was a b-side to something off Purple Rain. Somebody beat me for it while I was in college. Phuccers had the balls to leave the jacket and took the record.

That record always pops up in some record store for a $25 and up during the holidays. It's a good rare record to have, especially if you're a Prince collector like me.

There were two 12"s that I have. The US Promo where it was the Bside to "I would die 4 U" (Extended Version)(45 Rpm). The other is the UK 12" but this one has the LP version of "I would die for you" and the B side has "Christmas' as well as the fantastic "Free". This was given to us in the pool back in the day as well, I guess because the LP version is on it. Happy hunting/

I have the purple vinyl on this as well, of course. All those B-Sides were dope - Erotic City, God, Another Lonely Christmas, She's Always In My Hair - in fact somewhere I have an old mixtape of JUST Prince B-Sides... have to dig that out now that I think about it.

Glad somebody pointed this out. That song very little air play! When I first heard it I wanted to cry. I love this song.

Last night I spent another lonely Christmas
Darling, darling, u should've been there
Cuz all the 1s I dream about
U are the 1 that makes my love shout
U see, u are the only 1 I care 4

Remember the time we swam naked
In your father's pool?
Boy he was upset that night
But boy was that ever cool

Remember the night we played pokeno 4 money
And u robbed me blind
Remember how u used 2 scream so loud
Cuz u hated that number 9

Hey, I saw your sister skating on the lake
This afternoon
Good Heaven how she's grown
She swoons the boy skaters she's so tall

But of all your father's children
All your father's children, baby
U know, u are the finest of them all
U are brighter than the northern star

Last night I spent another lonely Christmas
Darling, darling, u, u should've been there
U see, of all the 1s I dream about
U are the 1 that makes my love shout
U see, u are the only 1 I care 4
Yeah

My momma used 2 say
Always trust your lover
Now I guess that only applies 2 her

Cuz baby u promised me
Baby u promised me u'd never leave
Then u died on the 25th day of December
Oh baby

Last night I spent another lonely, lonely Christmas
Darling, baby, u, u should've been there
Cuz all the 1s I dream about
U are the 1 that makes my love shout
U see, u are the only 1 I care 4
Yeah

Your father said it was pneumonia
Your mother said it was stress
But the doctor said u were dead
And I, I say its senseless

Every Christmas night 4 7 years now
I drink banana daiquiris 'til I'm blind
As long as I can hear u smilin' baby
U won't hear my tears
Another lonely Christmas is mine
Yeah, mine
Yeah
Another lonely Christmas is mine

Last night, yeah, I spent another lonely, lonely Christmas
Darling, darling, u should've been there, yeah
Cuz all the 1's I dream about
U are the 1 that makes my love shout
U see, u are the only 1 I care 4

Another Lonely
