Am I the only one to hope the the song 2020 will be released on Jan 1st?

Not sure if they're even aware of the song despite it having been bootlegged over 20 years ago, but releasing it on Jan 1st, 2020 seems like a once in a lifetime opportunity to me cool

i totally love this song and i think it should have been on emancipation as an intro track
to either the first or the 3rd disc.

but as a stand alone release, it doesn't make much sense since it doesn't feel like it's a
full track, it's really more of an intro to a bigger project.

as such it's pretty much a brilliant little track.

however, what kind of impact would it make to release it on it's own now? other than
the obvious 2020 connection, it's hardly a single or anything.

Phase3

I'm all for it.Maybe there is a longer version in the vault since the leaked version fades out? They could make it a vinyl release like they did with "I feel for you" demo recently

Just 4 fun, nothing ethereal or any big marketing thing, just a strand alone track like I Feel For You as Phase 3 suggests wink

Now I must be a number fetishist because I always thought Prince should have released an album titled "1982" in 1999 lol

And ever since my mom died in Hospital Room #319 back in 2001 ( eek ), I see 319's everywhere.

I think it would need to be an introduction or segue to another song or be part of an EP to work.

It's a very pretty, atmospheric song but as a standalone single I fear most would find it a little underwhelming. Particularly if Joe Public thought he might be in for a '1999' style anthem.

I would be very surprised if the estate thinks things through like that, if they do, I guess I will have to wait until the year 3121 for the 3121 original and remixes.

i hear you on 319. apart from the single digit numbers 0 through 9,
i don't think i've seen any number as often as 319 in my life.

including alarmclock and phone times 03:19, 13:19 and prices that
always end with **3,19 etc

the times especially. i ALWAYS check my phone at exactly those :O

pumping, without looking *3,19 in gass, or sometimes actually 31,21 :O

whenever i set a times for half an hour or so and check it after a
while it's inevitably at 03:19

i once entered the number 319 into one of those "guess how many
marbles in this jar" competitions and actually won lol

i've also stayed in room 319 in several hotels and had a relationship
with someone who lived at number 319.

it's scary, i guess, is what i'm trying to say lol

also, sorry about your mom. i know it's been a long time but i don't
think that ever really goes away. especially during the holidays etc.

hug

I still played it to my friends tonight right after midnight. Remember how u felt when u first heard it 23 years ago and wondered where you'd be in 2020? The poor baby wasn't here to celebrate it with us so I felt we owed it to him to listen to it on this day. Love4OneAnother y'all hug

The last hotel room I stayed in with my GF was number 319, too. So it would seem that this is truly a thing, lol.
