Why Do I Love Prince So Much?

Shit...all I can honestly say is...


It's...A U T O - Matic!

[Edited 1/1/19 0:54am]

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

Amazing song...Definately Top 20. Loved the song even more because of the memory of my 8th Grade girlfriend’s mother explaining the “S&M” overtones in the lyrics...went right over my head...lol.

Why DID I love Prince so much?
He was dependable. His output was constant - year after year after year. I could depend on him to release some music almost every year. It wasn't a new album of music then a wait of 5 years for a new collection of songs. He was like the Stephen King of Pop. And while I still love his music now any new music is in the control of record executives and estate lawyers and family members. Now that dependability is a thing of the past. And I miss that. I miss that security. I started listening to Prince when 1999 was released and my love for his music never waned, never wavered. We had a long run together. But now that dependability is gone. So my love has changed into something wrapped in nostalgia.

I stand corrected.

If this was the only song of Prince's that I'd ever heard, I would not love him. I have tried, but I really don't see what people see in this track. Easily the worst on 1999 for me, I just don't get it.

RIP sad

It's too bad he wasn't like the James Patterson of Pop since that guy has a new book out every two weeks it seems.... wink

I honestly can NOT put it into words. It is an emotional thing for me that I don't intend to try to explain.

And I don't care for Something In The Water (Does not Compute) or All The Critics, but love Automatic. SITW is great in a live setting though or the Orange Bowl rehearsal 1985.

As a long time fan from the start, there were times I loved him like crazy, but other times not so much.

My top three are The Beatles, Bowie and Prince. I see a picture of Prince pop up online or in a magazine, and it feels like my heart skips a beat. I don't think this will ever change for me.
