Agree on Way Back Home.

Anna Stesia & The Love We Make would be my additions.

My, aren't you the depressed ones.
"Way back home"? Dare I say you've lost yours, even for a short while.
That's not getting through the pain, that's like taking a bath in it.

Come on, show some spirit!
Or were you pretending to believe in the afterworld all along?
This is the only way to face death my friend:





Laughter is all U pay, remember?


This, then This, and, to shed a tear, finish yourself with This.
It's one of these too rare moments where he speaks open-hearted
about serious personal stuff and the struggles of life,
and it's for each and everyone of us.
You'll close with a smile, at least I hope so.

Just once three times a week, in that exact sequence. No pauses.
Make your house quake. It's better to fill a room than to cover your ears.
Let the bass massage your chest, let the kick glue your heart pieces back.
Shake yo ass, your spine will follow.

Don't abuse your prescription.
Doctor's advice.

You'll B (y)up in no time.

The Colors R brighter, the Bond is much tighter
No Child's a failure
Until the Blue Sailboat sails him away from his dreams
Don't Ever Lose, Don't Ever Lose
Don't Ever Lose Your Dreams

sure, i hear you, but i really think it's better there than here, so why not lament the fact that i'm still here? Prince was done with the world and so am i, doesn't mean i won't try or live but I understood what he was saying. in fact, it was songs like that, avalanche and old friends 4 sale where i probably relate the most. I've never been a partier or a social person or successful enough with the ladies to be able to relate to any of those songs outside of just loving the music.

I love that and totally agree!

The GIF reminded me of a drive from FL to NY my ex and I did when we first got engaged. I got a Big Gulp and then of course had to urinate about 30 minutes later. My ex refused to stop so we worked out that I would use the Big Gulp cup to deposit the "big gulp". He said he would slow down to let me pour it out. Unfortunately he did not slow down enough and I didn't have a calculator to insert a blowback formula......and I ended up with my bodily fluid on my face.

And yeah, I looked just like that GIF for the next VERY QUIET 30 minutes! I was so surprised that he could hold his laughter for that long!!!

Jim Croce was right! Don't piss in the wind.

Well it depends: sometimes,
there ain't nothing like a friend
Who can tell you you're just pissing in the wind

ya, that's an interesting song, he knew all the dangers of the business, somehow something got to him. I non-sarcastically wonder if he was found "facedown" elvis was, whitney was.

I was listening to a song (not a Prince song) that features the line "Oh yeah!" and just as it was sung, I read your response.

I love it when that happens.

Thieves In The Temple. Underneath the pop and funk, its the ultimate song about spurn and heartbreak. The 12" take the pain/anger to another level.

We Gets Up.
I never thought a track from that record would be the first song that popped in my head given how much I disliked that whole bloated mess when it was released (and beyond). Actually Facedown, The Holy River, Da, da, da, Get Yo Groove on are all pick-me-ups for me.
It's a hurtful place, the world, in and of itself. We don't need to add to it. We all need one another. ~ PRN

Depends on the TYPE of pain.... if I think of my heartache from lovers then I tend to have a more "Facedown" kiss my ass, screw you feeling.

Death? I like to listen to happy music to pick my spirits up... Paisely Park, Starfish & Coffee, Gold, and anything esle that gets me in dance mode.

I don't like to listen to sad music when I am sad.... but when I am feeling good, I'll listen to Comeback to remind myself that life can be sweet, and worth living.

ya, i think it goes for composers many times too, i've heard of tchaichovsky writing his most joyous music at his most down periods. Also, i still remember my ma, getting fired from her job and buying tapes of prince to take with her for a few days when she left us to recuperate. I asked why because I was about 14, my stepdad told me "to make her feel better".
