After All this time...

Like probably everyone else, I listen to Prince on my commute to and from work. I must have listened to the Purple Rain 2 CD set (and others) a zillion times. Just today I realized that the melody in the middle of "Computer Blue" and "Father's Song" are the same. What an idiot!!!! And I like to think sometimes I know a little about music and am such an appreciator of it.

(I cannot sing, never was that great in band in school)

Well, there it is, I guess I never got it before. Ahh, the mystery of how he connected the album music in our heads continues.

Good morning children...take a look out your window.

You didn't get it from the movie?
"Father's Song" is followed by "Computer Blue".

Guess I missed that too. I only saw the movie once when in first came out, then about half of it one Sunday afternoon when I didn't see the start. More of a music person than a movie-holic.

I guess I am going to have to buy the movie on DVD and watch it again!
