Noooooooooooo! RIP, Prince. Man, so sad and unexpected. 3 out of 6 of my preprogrammed radio stations were playing Prince during my commute home, so well done, radio. (Different songs, too!) But my favorite song, Pussy Control, won't be played on the radio, and I can't even find it on YouTube! I also LOVE Raspberry Beret and Seven, among so many others. Gett Off! Cream! Man.

I remember as a kid in the 80s hearing people talk about Prince as sexy. And at the time, I was like, whuuuh? I didn't get it. I thought other singers were sooooo cute (see: NKOTB) but didn't get the sex appeal of Prince, for all that I was happy to sing along to his music on the radio. And then Prince sort of faded from my view, and he didn't get back on my radar until college, where one of my friends was an ENORMOUS fan (perhaps uncoincidentally, she was from the MN area). Once I was older, I was like, oh, I get it now. Prince, you just knew, would fuck a girl right.

I remember seeing Wanda Sykes on one of those VH1 comedian talking heads shows, either the Top 50 Artists Who Whatevered, or I Love the 80s, or some such. And what she said about Prince was that he was a weird little dude, but if some woman told you that she had the best orgasm of her life while fully clothed courtesy of Prince staring intently at her, you'd believe her. Because he was Prince. Now that's some mojo. What a loss!
