Thought I would start something new for the New Year, and start putting out a lyric or something everyday, at about 6:30 CST, I’m gonna throw something up on Twitter. I might have some of the other writers take a week or two every now and again (if you start seeing Nas or Frank Sinatra, chances are I’m taking a week off) So lets have fun with it, and if you missed a day, or just have no idea where the song comes from, well, here you go. As always the Twitter is @7poundbagdotcom
I was dreamin’ when I wrote this
So sue me if I go too fast
But life is just a party
And parties weren’t meant to last
Might as well start this off with the greatness that has expired. I do love 1999. How awesome is Prince? Other than the first two lines- everything else is Prince. Yup. The hot girls have one job. Read two lines and make Prince happy.
Yeah, not his best song, but a fun topic and song, plus it has his wife in it. Who tamed the Prince? There ya go.
You don’t have to be beautiful to turn me on
I just need your body, baby, from dusk till dawn
Yeah, It’s bubblegum. But I love this song, I love the video.
Purple Rain 1/29
Never seen the movie
I’ve bought the Album a dozen times, and worn out the tape a half-dozen times. Yeah. Got the whole album memorized. Love this album.
Still not going to watch the movie.
The Most Beautiful Girl In The World 1/30
Might be Prince’s last great song. If you didn’t know it was Prince, you wouldn’t care- but because its Prince, it grows on you. Heavy rotation on MTV got me really liking the song, and VH1 Pop-up videos got me to enjoy it even more.
When Doves Cry 1/31
Might be the most famous Prince song, and my second favorite one. One of the best videos of all time. This is Prince at the peak of his powers. Yes, I do hear the doves cry.
Raspberry Beret 2/1
yeah, My favorite Prince song. Just pure awesome. The video has problems, the first major sign that Prince is a control freak, and sometimes it was great, sometimes it became as messed up as the Beret video, the song however, is awesome.
So how did you enjoy Prince Week? I could do a Prince Month and not duplicate a song, so we may return. Starting tomorrow, I’m back to randomness, Have someone in mind that deserves a week? Let me know, in 2 weeks, the Lady Jane, she of the Monday weekly Column, Musings from the Bench, will take the our first guest DJ chair.
