#Lyricsoftheday Week 5 Wrapup PRINCE WEEK


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

So how did you enjoy PRINCE Week?Prince

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

1999 1/26

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.

All 7 and we’ll watch them fallMayte
They stand in the way of love and we will smoke them all
With an intellect and a savoir-faire

7 1/27

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

Kiss 1/28

Yeah, It’s bubblegum. But I love this song, I love the video.

I never wanted to be your weekend loverPrince 2
I only wanted to be some kind of friend, hey
Baby, I could never steal you from another
It’s such a shame our friendship had to end

Purple Rain 1/29

Never seen the movie
Never will.
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.

How can I get through days when I can’t get through hoursPrince 3
I can try but when I do I see you and I’m devoured, oh yes
Who’d allow, who’d allow a face to be soft as a flower

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.

Take if you will a picturePrince 4
Of you and I engaged in a kiss
The sweat of your body covers me

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.

The rain sounds so cool when it hits the barn roofPrince Raspberry Beret
And the horses wonder who you are
Thunder drowns out what the lightning sees

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.
