Title: Prince is Gone
Post by: NoGNoG on April 21, 2016, 03:13:05 PM
RIP Prince...   /pray

The man and artist I grew up with.   I thought David Bowie gone was bad, but this is devastating.  :(

Anotherloveryohead...

Yeah, oh
Oh
I gave my love, I gave my life, I gave my body and mind
We were inseparable, I guess I gave you all of my time
And now you plead insanity and you don't even know the score
Why can't you learn to play the game?
Baby, don't you know that you need more? (more, more, more)

You need another lover like you need a hole in yo head (baby, baby)
You know there ain't no other
That can do the duty in your bed, yeah

We were brothers and sisters
United all for love
Now all of the sudden (all of the sudden)
You try to fight it (try to fight it)
You say you've had enough (say you've had enough)
Even though we had big fun (even though we had big fun)
You want another someone (you want another someone)
Yo happily ever after be (Sure as there's a sun)
Sure as there's a sun, (I'm gonna be the one)
I'm gonna be the one and if (you don't understand)
You don't understand face to face, (face to face)
Baby I'll tell you down on my knee, yeah

You need another lover like you need a hole in yo head (baby, baby)
You know there ain't no other
That can do the duty in your bed
Solo, solo

(Sing it)

Oh Lord, oh yeah, yeah ha

You need another lover
You know there ain't no other
You need another lover like you need a hole in yo head
Hole in yo head
Hole in yo head
You need another lover like you need a hole, a hole, a hole, a hole
You need another lover
You know there ain't no other

There's gonna be a riot, if you don't clap your hands,
If you don't make that funky stand, everybody
You know there ain't no other

So very sad. For me, 'When Doves Cry' always sends shivers down my spine.

Sometimes you meet people that call themselves musicians. The reality is that they can barely play a little something. He could play 27 instruments, sing, dance, write for himself and others. He was a genius and i don't think that we'll see another one like him any time soon.

Vincent - I agree except it is not any time soon...It is not another in my lifetime.

The rumors and speculation is so annoying regarding Prince's death.   Whether drugs are involved his death was an accident and tragedy.  He was such a private man while alive and all this trash talk is so disrespectful.

I am a patient of pain management.  I have to be extremely careful of quantity and time of when I have taken a pain pill.  My pain pills make me feel I am living in Partyland and I completely forget when I took my last pain pill.  I can totally relate to the pills not working either.  When I broke my ankle and the day after surgery at home, I took vicadin with what I call "woo hoo" pills, .05mg of morphine.  The pain I was experiencing was excruciating and that prescribed pill cocktail did not work. I ended up going back to hospital.  So anyone who is in, or always in pain, has to walk the fine line with drug abuse.  Those who have not experienced it should not be judging either.

Exactly. People always like to judge without even knowing what they are talking about. As you said, anyone can accidentally kill himself with the use of too many or mixing pain killer with something else.
