The Inspirational Susannah Melvoin

Friday, April 17, 2009

Few people know that they have Susannah Melvoin to thank for some of the greatest music in the United States in the past 20 years.
Such classics as, "Adore," "The Beautiful Ones," "Nothing Compares 2 U", "If I Was Your Girlfriend", and "Forever in My Life," all composed by Prince.
Did Melvoin have a hand in producing these hits?
Nope. She was Prince's girlfriend.
And he wrote all of the aforementioned jams about her.
Talk about inspiration.
Prince had a serious jones for Melvoin, whom he met when her harder-looking twin sister Wendy joined the band. Wendy was 19 years old in the early 1980s when she was installed in the band as a charmer and disarmer of the older Prince.
Her twin sister, who was much more musically inclined, immediately caught Prince's eye.

When Prince and crew flew to Nice, France to shoot "Under the Cherry Moon,"
Melvoin was sporting a huge rock-ring, evidence that Prince had proposed. But once they landed and went to the luxurious hotel, Prince ordered one of his henchmen to fly her all the way back to Minneapolis. He cheated on her numerous times, and they broke up. But the Melvoin-inspired music is here to stay.

Wow. I love Prince's music. My fav is Adore. But as a woman, I wonder if she was so great and such a muse, why the cheating? I dont get men sometimes.
