Si è spento un altro grande della musica. Ciao Prince


 
Prince
(Giugno 1958 - Aprile 2016) 


Si è spento il genio poliedrico della musica internazionale Prince; riuscì a fondere diversi generi musicali: pop, rock, funk e soul. Indimenticabile l'album "1999". Il suo miglior album di tutti i tempi è  "Purple Rain". 


A mio avviso, il brano musicale "Purple Rain", tratto dall'omonimo album, è uno dei più belli:


I never meant to cause you any sorrow
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only wanted one time to see you laughing

I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain 


Purple rain, purple rain, purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain, purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain, purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain 
I never wanted to be your weekend lover
I only wanted to be some kind of friend
Baby, I could never steal you from another
It's such a shame our friendship had to end 
Purple rain, purple rain, purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain, purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain, purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain
Honey I know, I know, I know times are changing
It's time we all reach out for something new, and that means you too
You say you want a leave, but you can't seem to make up your mind
I think I'm gonna close it and let me guide you to the purple rain 
Purple rain, purple rain, purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain, purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain, purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain

(Purple Rain del 1984)
