My Life Through the Songs of Prince




Music Monday

Pick an artist, and using ONLY SONG TITLES from only that artist, cleverly (preferably) answer these questions. This is harder than it seems!
ADDITIONAL RULE: You cannot use the same artist I did, or duplicate song titles even if they were performed by another artist.

  15. If you could change your name what would it be: Bambi

If you don’t like the world you’re living in, take a look around you, at least you got friends. – Prince, Let’s Go Crazy

Even though this was originally posted on Facebook Notes (seriously does anyone still use that feature?) way back in April 2009 I thought that it would be fun to take a look back, I like it so much this will be a theme for the coming week…..

Until Next Time,

Writing Prompt: You’re asked to recite a poem (or song lyrics) from memory — what’s the first one that comes to mind? Does it have a special meaning, or is there another reason it has stayed, intact, in your mind?

“I hear Brenda’s got a baby
But Brenda’s barely got a brain
A damn shame, the girl can hardly spell her name
That’s not our problem, that’s up to Brenda’s family
Well let me show you how it affects our whole community

Now Brenda never really knew her moms
And her dad was a junkie putting death into his arms
It’s sad, cause I bet Brenda doesn’t even know
Just cause you’re in the ghetto doesn’t mean you can’t grow”

I remember when this song came out, it was played on The Box all the time. It really was one of those songs that you could never get away from, and honestly it wasn’t a song that I enjoyed but I couldn’t deny that the message was real and the video reflected it… (as far as I’m concerned that song is still as relevant now as when it debuted). Generally when I hear a song it’s either the beat or the catchy hook that sinks me in… and after a while you learn all the lyrics and you finally get and understand what the song was really about, I didn’t get that chance to do that with this song because it was bam right in your face… One day after 4 years ago I was laying in bed and just started singing the song…I knew every single word… which shocked the hell out of my because I didn’t know I knew it (isn’t it odd how the brain works sometimes?)… And now it’s become a permanent earwig… so if ever called upon I can always recite this song… or “Hot in Herre” by Nelly, and I think we can all agree this one might be a little bit better.

Until Next Time….
