I can. But it’s an amazing song (and I wish he had released it free from affirmation speech and with Affirmation 2 as an instrumental coda)

Was just listening to it this morning and wishing I could get versions of both of those songs without the nonsense voice over.

not since Josh virtually admitted on twitter that it's Princes' heartbeat via ultrasound that is used on the track....it was a hard listen before I found out...impossible to listen to it now without tears.

From "No Country for Old Men" (author:Cormac McCarthy)

"Had dreams… Two of ’em. Both had my father in ’em. It’s peculiar. I’m older now then he ever was by twenty years. So, in a sense, he’s the younger man. Anyway, the first one I don’t remember too well but, it was about meetin’ him in town somewheres and he give me some money. I think I lost it. The second one, it was like we was both back in older times and I was on horseback goin’ through the mountains of a night. Goin’ through this pass in the mountains. It was cold and there was snow on the ground and he rode past me and kept on goin’. Never said nothin’ goin’ by – just rode on past. And he had his blanket wrapped around him and his head down. When he rode past, I seen he was carryin’ fire in a horn the way people used to do, and I-I could see the horn from the light inside of it – about the color of the moon. And in the dream I knew that he was goin’ on ahead and he was fixin’ to make a fire somewhere out there in all that dark and all that cold. And I knew that whenever I got there, he’d be there. And then I woke up."

It gets me choked up, but it always has, even prior to his death. I was so excited with that record. It felt new and fresh and real and raw with the whole Mr Nelson thing. It felt like a new chapter was unfolding. And I was so intrigued all over again. Like i hadn't since the first time I saw him on MTV in the LRC video soooo many years ago love

Yes. I have been able to listen to it now without crying, but I still have a deep feeling of missing him and awe that he’s been passed for this long.

A year and a half ago I couldn’t imagine where we’d all be now, how this would all feel. There’s something about it that’s harder, his absence for so long now.

But the initial grieving seems past.

Does anyone see that we have in part grieved our own losses during this? That this has mirrored that?

sorry to say but i loved the song before he died and if prince ever sang a song i could relate to, this was it. I feel the same, i could die anytime and it'd be ok, so I don't totally feel bad for the man, i don't understand totally, but the man was tired of the world, tired of people, tired of people's bullshit, probably moreso than any drug issue.

I feel he was just tired. He had given all he could, attributed to and backed other musicians, helped people spiritually, lived a good full life, had secured his legacy, had people who loved him and had loved lots of people.
His body was worn out and I think the prospect of living with chronic pain was a heavy, complicated burden.
I don’t think he was ok with leaving then though just because other people suck.
He could choose frequently who was around him, and although I feel he was somewhat pained by our society’s impending personal problems, I don’t k ow that that would be cause for him to be sick of living.
Prince didn’t have to face a lot of the same bullshit we do, although he did have some in those last years.

well, he said himself that he didn't believe in the world anymore, he was already done by that point. As I've said, it's not just the bad things, it could even be the good things, how many bubbleheaded beauties can you bang before it just becomes more dull than masturbation? How many things can you buy that haven't already bought? I really think Breakdown and WBH are his goodbyes, his apologies too. Pain? I don't know, maybe, I just don't know but I think it was only one factor. We aren't in these peoples heads, just looke at bourdain and robin williams, no telling what's going on underneath all the smiles and the everything is great image.

Yes, I can.

But I still can't listen to 'All My Dreams' or 'Love Thy Will Be Done' without tearing up.

When did he say that, Pete?
I’d like to see it in context if you can pull up the quote and any other pertinent information. Simply because I’m always curious about how he felt.
Thanks.

I just listened to the show in Atlanta and he said it before he played Waiting In Vain. He said that there was so much "instability" in the world that he didn't believe in it anymore but also that he believed that everyone could get along.

I wonder if the heartbeat sample is the same as Sex in The Summer or Maybe his own?
