It's hard to imagine that I would have to write that. But there it is.
Life, go figure.
Prince was a major talent as a performer and as a songwriter not to mention breaking down the barriers between music as we knew it and new frontiers of what music can be.
Beyond that, I'm not sure what more I can add.
We are gathered here today
2 get through this thing called life
Electric word life
It means forever and that's a mighty long time
But I'm here 2 tell u
There's something else
A world of never ending happiness
U can always see the sun, day or night
So when u call up that shrink in Beverly Hills
U know the one - Dr Everything'll Be Alright
Instead of asking him how much of your time is left
Ask him how much of your mind, baby
'Cuz in this life
Things are much harder than in the afterworld
In this life
You're on your own
And if de-elevator tries 2 bring u down
Go crazy - punch a higher floor
Rest in peace, Prince. You were awesome and you will be missed.
Everyone out there, remember to be good to one another.
