Raspberry Beret

I’ve always liked Prince but I’m not going to claim that I was one of his biggest fans or that he was one of my favorite performers.  “Purple Rain” and “When Doves Cry” are two of my favorite songs and there are plenty more that I really liked.  Actually one of my favorite songs from Prince was “Raspberry Beret.”  It was sort of a departure coming off his Purple Rain album, but to my there was a simplicity to that song I really loved.  Later Hindu Love Gods (Warren Zevon with REM minus Michael Stipe) did a cover of it that was really good.

I’ve always admired Prince’s devotion to his art.  His struggle against his record label and his subsequent career on his own.  Prince was willing to do more than talk about the problems in the recording industry.  He fought the fight and made music on his terms.

I’m saddened to hear the news of his passing.
