Let’s Go Crazy | April 21, 2016

The music of Prince is ingrained into my childhood. His war with the music industry came in the 90’s and led to a more sporatic output, but a high quality of music. For all his public persona, Prince was an amazing guitarist, writer, singer and performer until his death this morning.

I know so much of Prince’s music, I have a hard time thinking of a favorite song. Of course, there’s “Let’s Go Crazy.” There’s also less frenetic songs like “Diamonds and Pearls.” There are collaborations as well as his producing.

I think¬†“Let’s Go Crazy” covers a lot of the bases for today lyrically.

  1. In the song, Prince sings about life and the afterlife. He also mentions the “de-elevator,” or the Devil. In a weird twist, Prince died in the elevator of his studio.

    • Yeah, that is kind of creepy. Do you think that he died of an accidental drug overdose? Prescription drugs not illegal. I’ve heard a lot about the Narcan injection that he was given a few days before his death. He was a skilled and gifted artist.
