I have just started listening to his music fully again, it has taken me this long. After he died, I just couldn't listen to it or bear hearing it without tears. Certain songs still brings me to tears, but I can at least still listen to them in their entirety now, so I know that it is getting easier with time.

Yeah, still miss him. My daughter was born April 16 last year and (my birthday is in April too). Really makes me sad she will never have the chance to see him live.

I still can't listen without having a total breakdown. I can look at pictures of him, but as soon as I start to listen to a song, that day replays over and over in my mind. Some of you may understand this - I talk to him. His pictures are all over my house. I even have a Prince room and I couldn't even go in there for months. I know he hears me, I know he will always be there for me in songs and pictures and DVDs.

He wouldn't want us to mourn like this. Other than God, my children and Grands, no one else will ever have the love I had for this man. He had a song, "There's Others Here With Us." I know he is with each and everyone of us who is missing him. Sorry for the long post. I know I'm among family and can truly speak what's in my heart.

fuck yea, doesn't really get better, especially all the stories that we hadn't heard over the years of prince being, who knew? a nice guy! those kill me. The org is pretty dead now, I'm wondering how much longer it'll be here though.




I hate to admit it, but what you said is true. I used to come here a lot more than I do now. I drop in every now and then, when I think about Prince, and want to see if some of you guys have posted anything, or if there's something "new" but it's so sad because I now that there will never be anything "new" from Prince ever again! I hope the org lives on because I do love it, it was the only site about Prince I ever joined, other than the ones he himself created and disassembled. lol


Yes and I dont talk about it with anyone because they don't get it. It sounds crazy even to me but tgete it is. I am not better with it, I still cry sometimes and I m dreading my birthday which is june 7th.

Come on, cheer up people.

Those amongst us who have a depressive side are going through a tough month,
we need a smile and a laugh. Some celebration instead of talking about "dead places".

I listened a lot after he passed. But now I don't. I'm not sure why though. I miss him a lot still.

I'm on vacation right now and I went out to dinner. When the waitress was taking my order a Prince song came on. I just gasped and put my hand over my chest. The waitress knew what was wrong and she said " I know right, that is so sad". Then I starting crying.
I asked Prince what he was planning to do. He told me , I'm going to look for the ladder. I asked him what that meant. All he said was, sometimes it snows in April. - book D.M.S.R.

I miss him so much too. The other day at the gym I was listening to his music and just started crying. I just can't believe he's really gone. I'm having a really hard time accepting that. neutral

I just ordered several of the new Prince related books that are starting to come out. Ive purchased pretty much every tribute magazine and re released album too. It's hard to believe its almost been a year since his passing. I guess I've been missing him this whole time. It's sad when someone this iconic/important goes out like that.
I feel he was cheated out of his best years to come. He left so much for us to enjoy but I feel he had more that he wanted to share with us. An older, wiser, mellow Prince, That's what those last tracks left at Paisley Park sounded like to me.

I have been visiting here for some time, around 2012 when I first saw Prince perform in Australia. (Even though my profile says I only joined last year-- change of my user name thingy) I don't really post anything much, but it's nice to visit and read how other people are feeling.I only know one person who 'gets it' if you know what I mean. My feelings are so deep and profound I don't even know where to start. I miss him all the time. I used to listen to Prince's music frequently, now hardly at all. Problem is, I compare everyone else's music to Prince and they just don" measure up usually. Hence I don't listen to music a lot anymore, and I really do love music, lots of different music too. It's weird. I guess this will pass as all things do eventually. It's funny how you can feel a connection to a person who you never knew, never met and were never likely to. I was so fortunate to see him at the Sydney Opera house on the Saturday night for both concerts last febuary. It really is a bittersweet memory.

Other music definitely does not measure up. How did Prince look at the concerts?

Also, and not to stray into "blashphemous" territory, but for me now it's about spreading the word about Prince's music. Getting new people listening.

Exactly. That's what it's all about, the music.

I don't argue with people about my opinions. Scram. I said what I said.

I hope you'll be able to listen to his music again. It brings me so much joy to know that I can pop in my headphones and hear his beautiful voice. So many wonderful songs to choose from. Getting excited all over again at some I haven't heard in a while. I'm Still on a journey with his music discovering new songs, and ones that I hadn't cared for before becoming favorites. I wish that for you as well. Maybe one day soon...

Yes I am at this stage - I cannot not listen to Prince for a day - he is in my car and at the gym with me every day - his voice is a comfort to me and a joy. I still cry and I miss him every day too, but I cannot listen to anyone else really, they are just not as good. His groove is the groove of my life. The only thing I have not listned to still is the final Atlanta concert - but I am planning to, maybe April 21st may be the time for that.

Thank you Prince for every note you left behind 💜

This is me too..THe other day changed handbags, and left my USB sticks which I usually take to work..

My day was so long and i had some kind of withrawal thing ...kind of a Panic Attack I think...

I actually NEED to listen to his music every day..Nothing else measures up...Nothing else soothes me

and Nothing gives me as much JOY either...

I do miss him. Today I was listening to the 2013 Montreux concert with 3rd eye girl for the first time fully (I had previewed it previously). The whole first part of the concert had so many moments of brilliance, that it gave my brain a certain transcendent rush that feels like a high without drugs. I have gotten this time and again, especially when hearing something of his for the first time. No one else does this to me like he does. It also reminded me that eventually there will be fewer of these experience as there is only a finite amount of material to be heard now that he is gone. As the sadness of this thought came rushing through my heart, Sometime it Snows in April came on in the concert. It hit me right in the gut, and let's just say I lost composure. Yes indeed, he is and will be sorely missed.
