      Name another song that’s anything like this. You can’t. You just can’t. The man broke so many molds, they can’t be counted.

        If you’re listening to a song, even by other artists, and you tell yourself, “That sounds like Prince,” more than likely it is. He has a style that, while some may come close, can’t be duplicated.

        I liked this Stevie Wonder song where Prince is featured:

    GA/GE TODville.

    Sorry to interrupt Prince’s wake… astounding to me how MSM and internet companies are responding to his death, considering the losses the music world has endured this year.

    Google’s logo is now purple rain too.

    But television talking heads should, as CNN likes to say, “we’ll leave it there…”

    Prince – Purple Rain Live 1983

    • April 21, 2016 at 7:17 pm

      The version of β€œPurple Rain” that ended up on Prince’s album of the same name is largely the one he debuted during this First Avenue benefit concert in 1983.

    More on PBO’s schedule tomorrow.

    PBO will address students at the Royal Horticultural Hall at 4:50pm GMT (11:50am EDT, 10:50am CDT, 9:50am MDT, 8:50am PDT) then he and FLOTUS will dine with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (Wills, Kate, Harry, George and Charlotte) after this speech.

    No idea when he and FLOTUS will have lunch with @QueenAt90, but my guess is that it will be 2am PDT (12 noon GMT). 😦

        This is the first and last time i can quote $arah Palin, “All of Them” when it comes to Prince music, i love all if them. I will never forget the Roger & Ebert top movie picks and they both agreed Purple Rain movie was a masterpiece and classic genius of Prince. RIP SWEET PRINCE FOR ALL THE DOVES ARE CRYING TONIGHT.

    Not sure I knew before today that Prince wrote this. Always loved it. Sinead is incredible singing this incredible song!

    TMZ is reporting that Prince overdosed on an opiate last week when they made that emergency landing. So Sad!

      As I had said earlier, no healthy person aged 57 dies from the flu. If it’s drug-related complications, very, very sad.

        I read earlier today that he needed a hip replacement but refused to have the surgery because of some religious (Jehovah Witness) reason about blood transfusions. He was often seen with a cane. He may have been in a lot of pain and became addicted to opiates. I won’t speculate beyond this and I guess we’ll know when the toxicology come back in a couple of weeks.

    It wasn’t a big hit, but “Sign of the Times” is my favorite Prince song. Here is a very cool live version, the live performance is intro’d by a short very ’80s film intro πŸ™‚
