With the nation on #PrinceWatch, Tom Robinson invites you to help create an unmissable Prince-inspired playlist.

His Royal Purpleness has been keeping UK fans on their toes - by announcing a spate of last-minute Third Eye Girl guerrilla gigs via Twitter, sending the online world into a frenzy.

Throw in the gigs’ intimate settings and an even more intimate press conference (in the front room of his musician pal Lianne La Havas), together with a much-hyped BRIT Awards appearance AND fresh rumours of a Glastonbury headline slot this summer…a special playlist in honour of this inimitable music icon is The Law.

Is it any wonder #Prince, #PrinceWatch and #PrinceArmy have been trending? Purple ‘Reign’, indeed.

So where to start when compiling a playlist dedicated to the man that once was LITERALLY (remember Squiggle?), and now not so literally, an icon?

With a genre-spanning back catalogue that encompasses rock, R&B, soul, funk, hip-hop, blues, new wave, jazz, disco, electronica, psychedelia and pop, his music acknowledges a host of influences, and, he has in turn influenced a host of acts since the release of his naughtily-named 1978 debut single.

You could pick:
