VIDEO OF THE WEEK: THE BANGLES – ‘MANIC MONDAY’

March 23, 2020

Written by Prince under the pseudonym ‘Christopher’, ‘Manic Monday’ was the song that introduced to The Bangles to the wider world.

The song was originally written for Apollonia 6, but was given to The Bangles by Prince after he became enamoured by their 60s-influenced power pop.

A global smash hit, the video for ‘Manic Monday’ finds The Bangles in the sun-kissed environs of their native Los Angeles, which goes some way to clear the gloom that ushers in the start of the week.
