What Prince song last reduced you to tears unexpectedly

What Prince song was you last listening to and all of a sudden you find yourself crying when you was least expecting it?
I was just listening to the amazing guitar solo in Just my imagination - Small Club show 88 & it got me good!

"Just My Imagination" doesn't faze me because I always associate The Temptations with that song. The Prince song that will always get me is "Sometimes It Snows In April." Always...every time.

Great forum question 4everinmylife! This happened while I was at work a few months back. I was listening to my shuffled playlist, and BLUE LIGHT came on. I heard in the lyrics:


I'll be...... 117
U'll be still sayin' "Baby not 2 nite"


...and it hit me! Like a ton of bricks! He wouldn't live to be 117 bawl

Lastr time I was listening to ADORE, when the last verses hit, tears flood to my eyes. Dude was one of a kind..

Love really is too weak a definition 4 the connection we have w/ his art/spirit.

When I first heard Power Fantastic, I was overcome with emotion. I'm not a crier, but I started sobbing. Then it happened again. THAT song is alive.

.

I don't remember what song on AOA actually broke the damn, but I did when I heard that album.

A different reason than Power Fantastic

Spot on. And it's that innocent, sweet chuckle of his right at the beginning that set's u up for it.
Also from PR Deluxe, that at least tugs at the heart, is The Hallway Speech, God instrumental, and of course, Another Lonely Xmas extended. All very emotional songs.

Case of U from the One Night Alone...Live. It's an instrumental, but the musical emotions felt during the performance hit me hard. Way Back Home hits me the hardest every single time I hear it, though.

Welcome home class. We've come a long way. - RIP Prince

Way Back Home gets me a little teary eyed. Listening to the lyrics and then thinking about what has happened to him. sad

Love is God, God is love, girls and boys love God above.
RIP Sweet Prince

17 Days (Full Length Version) after it usually fades was the last wink. There have many since he transitioned. First was Do Me, Baby when he screams, then Feel Good when he chuckles at the end (he sounded like he was having a blast touched), then of course JMI, but the Camden Palace version, If I Could Get Ur Attention (I'll turn u on n on n on) n so on... He was/is the man...

I do love you. I do
Or else I wouldn't go through all the things I do

The other night, I was watching his acoustic performance of "Reflection" with Wendy and it made me a bit misty-eyed smile

I was playing my XBOX online listening to music through headphones and "Black Muse" came on.

Now "Black Muse" usually doesn't stir up any emotions but I started thinking about the song and

Black Muse was Prince and I started tearing up...by the time it got to 1000 light years from here

tears were streaming down and I didn't realize it. I'm glad my wife was sleep and didn't see it because I didn't want to explain and I don't like talking about Prince's death to people who don't listen to Prince like me or understand...................................................................

............................................................................................................................

Why do we always seem so far away?
When you know that I really wanna be with you night and day
I'm running out of ways to say how
So I think I'll just close
For now

Yeah, I've thought about that one many times since I heard it played it after a concert before the album came out...and he peeped around the side of the stage to see how people were responding to it... That brings tears... Last time I ever saw him.

Weirdly, anytime I hear "Look at me, Look at you" or "When she comes" they kick my ass every time I listen to HnR2.

It's so clean and musical, no sound effect samples, no over-production, just great music and Prince's voice cutting through so clear and perfect. Just drives home how much he still had to offer the world musically. Goddamn it.

Funny...I had the same reaction..

yep Prince is all over that track

I think I might reach number one..

I played it 5 times on repeat the first time..

And I agree. No one could express themselves, or love, like Prince.
