THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

...with PRINCE! Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to mark the first anniversary of Life After Prince. Regular readers here may have noticed that unresolved questions remain in the ivestigation of his death from opiod overdose.  I cannot pretend to have been a rabid fan of his work, but liked quite a bit of it and respected his enormous talent.  Indeed, for Generation X, it would be hard not to; he bestrode the radio landscape during the 1980s and 1990s in a way only rivaled by Bruce Springsteen, Michael Jackson, and Madonna.  Accordingly, I'll focus on this period. For a deep dive into Prince's career through this period, check out this epic tweetstorm from Jeff Blehar.  As Jeff notes, Prince was diligent in keeping his music off the internet, minus a few items like this terrific 1982 concert at the Capitol Theater, which includes the bracing "Controversy."  Although Prince's estate has cut deals with major streaming services, the best place to go for his videos may still be...Portugal. Accordingly, we can revisit a cross-section of tracks like "When You Were Mine," "Let's Pretend We're Married," "Little Red Corvette," "Let's Go Crazy," a joyful, rocking take on "Take Me With U," "I Would Die 4 U/Baby I'm A Star," "Raspberry Beret," "Kiss," "Sign O' the Times," "If I Was Your Girlfriend," and "I Could Never Take the Place of Ur Man."  That last may be my fave Prince track, if only because he could've written it for The Replacements. I don't think he did, tho in his heyday, Prince handed hits like "Manic Monday" to The Bangles, "Nothing Compares 2 U" to Sinead O'Connor, "I Feel For You" to Chaka Khan, "Stand Back" to Stevie Nicks, "Sugar Walls" to Sheena Easton, and "The Glamorous Life" to Shiela E (who also played in Prince's band and -according to her - was his fiancee for a while). The beautiful ones we always seem to lose.  BONUS: "Partyman," because of course.  DOUBLE BONUS: Prince's guitar gently weeps...and steals the show.
