I don’t even know how to say this (and one week doesn’t even ease the pain), but I just have to say it: I WANT MY PRINCE BACK!!!! I am trying not to cry as I write this. I was really hoping the news was a horrible internet rumor, but it wasn’t. I have been listening to his CDs going to work and coming back home all week, but it is not enough! Just give me one more concert, okay? Am I asking too much?!?!?! I have most of the CDs, so I didn’t have to buy them when I heard the news.
I did actually see him concert at the Allstate Arena when it was the Rosemont Horizon during the Lovesexy tour when I was in high school. He was amazing! The Sign O’ the Times concert dvd. It was one of the best, if not the best, concert dvds I ever saw. I saw him perform during the Superbowl half time show 10 years ago an television. Not taking away from anyone else, but his performance was one of the best I had ever seen. I can’t say I had a favorite CD because I loved them all, ESPECIALLY the B sides of his LPs! I mean, kids used to sing the b sides at my school.
The movie and CD of Under the Cherry Moon made me so happy during my freshman year of high school! I danced around in my family room at my parent’s house to the Mountains video on MTV all summer long!!! I especially loved visiting Minneapolis about 7 years ago because I could not go to the quilt museum, the gas station, a Chinese restaurant, Target or even Macy’s without hearing Prince. I really felt the people there understood me. And let me say I thought he was a very handsome man! He was truly a wonderful artist and I WANT MY PRINCE BACK!!!!!
