Yeah...no.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

Not to sound like a jerk, but why do you think he was thinking of this song specifically?

I'd say absolutely not.

Every time people post about those musical 'similarities' I find myself wondering what do they want their ears for.

I don't think so. However, I have always thought that "My Medallion" sounded like "Spill The Wine" by War. The hook anyways...."spill the wine, dig that girl"....."don't know why, want that girl". No?

I hear the similarities, especially the opening riff. Did Prince have Season Of The Witch in mind when he composed The Truth? It's possible. No doubt he was familiar with the work of Donovan.

If prince.org were to be made idiot proof, someone would just invent a better idiot.
