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.
