Feel-good Friday: go Crazy!

Oh man; it’s hard to believe that Prince is dead.  A trailblazing talent with such avant-garde style, he was almost impossible to categorize.  Prince will continue to live on through his feel-good music.  Love his music!prince2

In the opening lines of his Billboard Top 10 1984 single “I Would Die 4 U” he sang:

“I’m not a woman, I’m not a man, I am something that you’ll never understand”prince1

Dearly beloved
We are gathered here today
To get through this thing called “life”

Electric word, life
It means forever and that’s a mighty long time
But I’m here to tell you
There’s something else,
The afterworld

A world of never ending happiness
You can always see the sun, day or night

So when you call up that shrink in Beverly Hills
You know the one, Dr. Everything’ll-Be-Alright
Instead of asking him how much of your time is left
Ask him how much of your mind, baby

Cause in this life
Things are much harder than in the afterworld
In this life,
You’re on your own

And if the elevator tries to bring you down
Go crazy (Punch a higher floor!)


If you don’t like
The world you’re living in
Take a look around
At least you got friends

Are we gonna let the elevator bring us down?
Oh, no lets go!

Let’s go crazy
Let’s get nuts
Let’s look for the purple banana
Until they put us in the truck, let’s go!

We’re all excited
But we don’t know why
Maybe it’s cause
We’re all gonna die

And when we do (When we do)
What’s it all for (What’s it all for)
You better live now
Before the grim reaper come knocking on your door

Tell me, are we gonna let the elevator bring us down?
Oh, no let’s go!

Let’s go crazy!

(shortened – lyrics by Prince & taken from the album Purple Rain)


On another note……it’s EARTH DAY Todayearthday2

Let’s each do our part to make the world we’re living in a BETTER PLACE!
