I’ve always loved Prince. His music, yes, but also his attitude, his whole being. There’s no one else like him in music. A singular talent who kept to himself (sound familiar? 🙂 ). He lived in Toronto for quite a while but sadly I never ran into him at Timmies.
I love his own songs but also this song he wrote for The Bangles….
Prince wrote an incredible letter to a fan after “Purple Rain” came out https://t.co/8nXW7yd3XO pic.twitter.com/8mDJXEKTvg

I was sorry to hear this sad news. Too young. So much of his music was the soundtrack to times in my life that I’ll always remember. RIP sweet Prince.
A lovely tribute, TO. Prince was a unique and vibrant character and his death is a huge loss to our culture. I was very sad to hear the news.
I was sorry to hear this sad news too. Another immensely creative, unique and multi talented musician and individual gone too soon. Thanks for the tribute TOfan.
I didn’t know that he wrote that song for the Bangles.
He will be missed by many.
This is wonderful:
Such a bummer. Way too soon.
Same as the top comment…he was THE soundtrack to my post-college 20’s…that whole decade of life flashed before me watching tributes yesterday…
But man…the music….genius. One-of-a-kind, hard to wrap your brain around awesome to watch on stage.
“A singular talent who kept to himself.” ..TOfan, yep.
ps. I didn’t know he wrote Manic Monday either! Love that song still…loved The Bangles too. Have that on vinyl. Note to self: GOT to buy that turntable.
Has not been a great day, but then this happened:
🙂 🙂 🙂
I’m so happy I got to go see David in Cincinnati! It had been 5 years, way too long! TOfan, you are right, he was enjoying the signing after the program. He smiled that very real smile, laughed a bunch and was very relaxed. Sincere and sweet as ever!
Oops, meant to respond to the last post! Sorry.
