1. We all know the song “Manic Monday” by The Bangles.
It was written by Prince under the pseudonym “Christopher’ and released by the girl group in 1986.
2. But did you know the song was originally intended for Apollonia 6?
Prince created the trio in 1983 and originally recorded “Manic Monday” with them as a collaboration, but abandoned the group after deciding their voices weren’t quite good enough to do the song justice.
