Whats the first song / album will you listen to on the 21st?

21st of April a date many of here will never forget. For many of us this Friday will be an emotional day.

On the anniversary of the purple one departing from this existence what Prince song will you first listen to?

For me it will be 'Sometimes in Snows in April'.....and since Prince was a album guy I will follow it up with the 'The Truth', his acoustic peformance is so cathartic on that album.

I will obviously then be following up with the usual line up...Purple Rain etc.

I will let my mood at the time dictate, but I have purposely saving myself for ATWIAD and Parade. I know at some point later i want to play AOA.

Good question that I have been thinking about this week. I agree with the last post, I may just go with whatever pops in my head and let that play itself out during the day. I have also thought that Purple Rain is going to be needed somewhere through the day as well as Sometimes it Snows In April. Comeback and There is Lonely, and Empty Room also come to mind sad sad. It's going to be hard...I also think I am going to need some upbeat stuff too...My Name is Prince was on my mind earlier today as a must-listen to song on Friday. Also, Let's Work and Endorphinemachine must also be played that day. I feel like I am going to want to honor the grieving side of me cry cry as well the side of me that wants to BLAST headbang headbang his amazing music out my car windows for the world to hear!! I would love to hear what people actually play on the 21st....

1999 Album will be the first on my list, followed by Purple Rain. Then I'll rock it out with random favorite's throughout the day. Definitely incorporating a few of my 90's fave (New Power Soul) and 2000's (Lotus Flow), Prince would kill me if I didn't... It's gonna be a tough day but there will be spurts of euphoria. The way his music always makes me feel...

Edit: Let's Go Crazy...because it is my alarm every morning. I love hearing those words "Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today 2 get through this thing called life."

.

Probably my 2 favourites, Diamonds and Pearls and The Beautiful Ones. After I first heard Prince died, I started singing Diamonds and Pearls. I'll hear Starfish and Coffee a lot because I'm using it this week as the transition song in my classroom (and not just this week, but I use it at least once a month).

It's odd...because, in New Zealand, Prince died on April 22nd. At least, that's when I woke up and got the texts about his death. So, tomorrow is a false dawn for me. Not sure what song I'm going to go for...it may not even be a Prince track.

"Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad".....it was the last song I listened to on April 20, 2016.....I was in a mood for Prince that night. I was feeling really good because I was visiting my brother in Oceanside, Ca. I thank God for that. That was a good place for me to be on April 21, 2016.

This is not the brother that introduced me to Prince's music. He's not a huge fan, but he could not have been more comforting and understanding of my extreme sadness for someone I didn't know if he tried.

SOTT has been playing nonstop in my car for the past few weeks. I'm on Disc 2 these days. That will not change tomorrow. Each time, I've been repeating "Adore, which I can finally listen to again," 4-5 times. For the longest, after P's passing, I could not even listen to it. It has to be one of the greatest ballads, on one of the greatest albums, EVER!! I will 4ever heart Prince Rogers Nelson.

Turns out it was Sunrise, Sunset.

Hadn't thought about the date, woke up in the usual haze and set off in the car. Deliverance was in the CD player and that track was playing.

RIP sad

There's something wrong with me. I can't listen to his music. I want to but I can't. I've tried and I feel 100 times worse.

Nothing wrong with you, we all deal with difficulties differently. Take care.

Hopefully one day you can find joy in his music again instead of sadness.

First thing I listened to was Parade. No particular reason, I plan on listening to a few albums today. Sometimes it Snows in April probably made me as sad as it ever has. I don't plan on being sad all day. I have reason to be happy today, and I hope Prince's music will help me enjoy the day even more. RIP.
