This Cannot Be – Prince

As a child of the 80’s, still in love with 80’s music, I can’t even conceptualize Prince (Or the Man Formerly Known As)  as in his 50’s. Let alone…

All my Gen X pals are just stunned.

Of course everyone is playing “When Doves Cry” and “Let’s Go Crazy” which has some philosophically appropriate lyrics.

But I will depart from that memorializing/enshrining and share my favorite Prince song.

Because when it comes down to it, the man was utterly unabashed about one thing.

So thank you your Royal Purpleness for helping to define a generation, whether we were outwardly comfortable with it or not.

Inwardly we sure were.

P.S. I will also add that my father really liked Purple Rain, both the film and the soundtrack.
