I had everything I needed
But now my life is so blue
You meant the world to me
But now you're gone and I'm so blue

Even though the sun is shining
I spend my day, I spend my day crying over you
Oh yeah, I spend my day crying over you
I feel just like the sky, oh, so blue

Wenever loved him..So young to die. Going to listen to some of his music now. Funny how somebody has to die sometimes before we really appreciate them fully... as in David Bowie [for me anyway] and others.. who died too young. RIPsad flower
Wen, what he did to his piano at my concert would have made the Pope blush laugh

Hi wen. Beautiful blog.

I can't believe how many artists we've lost in the last 6 months!

So shocked to hear this today. I only liked his early stuff.

There's no doubt he was a talented musician whether you liked his style or not. Just listen to him play guitar! I heard his concerts were phenomenal.

My faves were Let's Go Crazy, Little Red Corvette, When Doves Cry, Purple Rain and Kiss.

Fitting song for today:

Let's Go Crazy

Dearly beloved
We are gathered here today
To get through this thing called life

Electric word life
It means forever and that's a mighty long time
But I'm here to tell you
There's something else
The after world

A world of never ending happiness
You can always see the sun, day or night

So when you call up that shrink in Beverly Hills
You know the one, Dr. Everything'll Be Alright
Instead of asking him how much of your time is left
Ask him how much of your mind, baby

'Cause in this life
Things are much harder than in the after world
In this life
You're on your own

And if the elevator tries to bring you down
Go crazy, punch a higher floor..........

(Best Intro ever!)

RIP Prince sad flower

I was surprised to hear he was 57. sad flower Died from flu? Said they are having autopsy tomorrow, to investigate cause of death. Read he visited the pharmacy (I believed Walmart) four or so times right before his death.

I didn't like all of his music, but there two or three that stood out (the earlier ones, as already mentioned). When Doves Cry would probably be my fav. bouquet

@Loulou He was a unique artist for sure. Could do rock, soul, r&b, funk, pop. Also unique was the way he dressed which he didn't care what people thought.

I also liked how he fought the record companies. I remember when he wrote SLAVE on his face. Back then people thought he was out for money but it was the record companies that were. They owned him and even his name which pissed him off as his mother gave him his name. It was only 2 years ago he finally won the rights to his music and control of his own brand. Because of him artists have more control now over their music.

He was quite a humanitarian/activist apparently but he kept it hush hush as he didn't want the recognition.

When I think of him I think of his first single When Doves Cry, when the door creaks open and it shows the pigeons flying around with him in the distance in the bathtub! What an intro!

Not a fan to be honest.

So this is how it sounds like when ducks cry ;-(


It is sad, but, rumours are stirring, it was a drug overdose, dunno
musicfreak
@Calm I heard he had the flu. They made an emergency landing last Fri in Illinois. He was very dehydrated, treated and sent home. On Sat he was seen going for a bike ride and later that night put on a dance party at Paisley Park and made a brief performance. Now he's gone......

The radio said he had the flu and whooping pneumonia. He also had a hip injury and was spotted with a cane in Mar. and looked frail. Recently as you said he was at the pharmacy a few times.

Will be interesting to see what the autopsy says. I wonder if he had an underlying condition. I read he had epilepsy as a child.

It is shocking all these musicians I grew up with are passing away and they're not even that old!
musicfreak
@Wolfie Typical rockstar rumour. First time I've heard it could be drugs. All day I've been hearing it was the flu.
musicfreak
Local radio and CNN said he passed from health issues but I see online there are rumours of an OD from gossip websites.. Wait and see I guess.

How could you just leave me standing
Alone in the world that's so cold
Maybe I'm just too demanding
Maybe I'm just like my father - too bold

Maybe you're just my mother
She's never satisfied
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like - when doves cry.
