Prince Songs that were Hits for Other Artists

Technically, the raspy 1983 Wild Heart dance track "Stand Back," was written by Stevie Nicks herself – but Nicks has said it "belongs" to Prince.

She likes to tell its origin story: It was the day of her wedding, she and her new husband Kim Anderson were driving North to Santa Barbara for their honeymoon when she heard "Little Red Corvette" for the first time. She wrote "Stand Back" start to finish that day, humming along to the Prince single.

When she later went to record the song, she called to tell him the story. Twenty minutes later the Purple One showed up at her studio.
He "walked over to the synthesizers that were set up, was absolutely brilliant for about 25 minutes and then left," she later told Timothy White. "He spoiled me for every band I've ever had because nobody can exactly recreate – not even with two piano players – what Prince did all by his little self."
