Prince Charming

Prince Charming by Adam and the Ants was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, September 19, 1981 spending 4 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Adam Ant wrote this song with his guitarist, Marco Pirroni, who Ant credits with giving his music a commercial appeal. There were plenty of outlets to show videos around Europe, and the "Prince Charming" clip was wildly popular. The designs were inspired by the French Revolution, and Adam Ant's look was based on a French dandy of that era, strutting for attention among the masses. Ant was a student of graphic art and felt that visuals were a huge part of his presentation. He came up with this theme after researching historic fashions in the London library. Adam was accused of stealing the tune from Rolf Harris' "War Canoe."
