Uncertain Smile

"Uncertain Smile" is a song written by The The, a retooling of "Cold Spell Ahead". Produced in New York by Mike Thorne; it reached No. 68 UK. A version of the song was included on the band's debut album Soul Mining, released in October 1983.

This is my visual interpretation of the song.

For You is the debut studio album by American recording artist Prince. It was released on April 7, 1978 by Warner Bros. Records, two months shy of his twentieth birthday. The album bore the soon-to-be classic tag "produced, arranged, composed, and performed by Prince", as it featured him writing all the songs and playing all the 27 instruments on the record. The album was intended to establish Prince as an artist and to prove his merits; it was produced to the point of spending triple the allotted budget.
