Diamonds and Pearls



Dearly beloved we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life......OMG.  Prince is dead.  I am still in a purple cloud of confusion. This is a tough one....you're gonna have to give me a minute here.  No, I don't have any diamonds and pearls for sale currently on Ebay.  Diamonds and Pearls is actually the title to a Prince song.
Prince was HUGE in the 80's.  I grew up singing Prince songs and I really didn't even understand what some of them were talking about until I was grown and listened to them all over again. Lyrically, Prince was a BEAST!! He was a soulful rock star that who could wear leather and lace while strutting around in heels - and for many of us, that was mesmerizing. Pardon me, but I think I hear some doves crying right now.
James Corden is a fan, too! One thing that I love about James Corden.....he knows how to belt out a song with gusto! I'm the same way. I've been singing Prince songs that I can remember loud and proud for the last two days.

Prince's music was a thread in the tapestry of my life.  In celebration of him and the contributions that he made to the music world, I will be doing my eBay listings while jamming out to some of my favorite Prince songs.  You should join me.  Check out some of his albums below. For all of the Prince fans out there.....shout out your favorite song in the comments.

  2. I have a feeling of loss too. I grew up listening to Prince. I remember when he was a guest on SNL (long long ago) and he was wearing what I can only describe as something that looked like animal print speedos but sexier. I was impressionable, in awe, and I felt like a naughty girl : ) I didn't realize how much of an impact he had on me until I heard he passed away. He did much to open our minds and how we think about our sexuality. He was true to his art and to himself. I will always love When Doves Cry. I also love I Wanna Be Your Lover. I also enjoyed Bat Dance (often forgotten!) because of the shout out to Vicki Vale.
