you know your a Prince fan if..

You take the day off school and work on the day of a new Prince release so that
you can get it as soon as its released in the "wrecka stow" and spend the
whole day listening to it. ( i did that with "Crystal Ball" and it became a custom.)

...if you can take absolutely anything someone says to you and find a Prince song that goes with it.

Wife: I'm gonna go take a bath.

Me: "Take a bath, hippy!! All the critics love U in New York. New York. New York. New York."

If you use Prince as a reference point for everything..I can link eras of my life as well as track other artists, all in terms of Prince. I'm driving my friends bananas...

If your friends would say about you to other people, "Yeah, she's REALLY into Prince." without their being asked about it.
Come here, babe.. yeah...

*...you give Prince credit for the existence of other artists.
(Ex: If Prince had not worked with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, there
wouldn't be a Janet Jackson)


*...you enjoy pointing out that Michael Jackson is now "the weird one"


*...you've never heard: babies makin' babies, the jam, maybe your baby, etc.
before you heard His Holy Sexiness do them.

*...you answer the phone with "what it is?"

*...You can connect any famous person to Prince in six degrees or less (a la the
Kevin Bacon game)

*...You've seen Fargo 50 times, but keep missing the scene with Prince in it. ARGH!!!

*...you're ready to start a fight when someone says, "Prince who?"

*..you try to do the dance steps at the end of the When Doves Cry video
whenever you see the video. ( i can't even tell you how many times my brother has walked in on me, and starts laughing.)

*... you make a list of the obessive acts you committed, while your mother and brother stand over you're shoulder giving you more things to say or you start a thread on obessive acts over Prince.

-U roll your eyes when casual fans tell U their favorite Prince album is "Purple Rain"

-U r quick 2 preach the evil of record companies and r well-versed on the subject.

-U own factory sealed copies of his CD's, "Cuz U never know...."

-Your favorite Prince song is so rare and obscure Prince himself has probably never heard of it.

-U still aren't ready 2 talk about the "Crystal Ball Fiasco of '98"

When your friends, family, co-workers hear any Prince news they tell you as soon as possible. When they hear or see Prince they immediately think of you. All of my friends and coworker have told me this.

When you have trained your mother and/or other relatives to always be on the lookout for Prince on television, and to tape his appearances for you. No shit, I have done this. My mother is well trained. lol

When you know the procedures and protocol of lining up for aftershows, you come equipped with all the supplies you need to make yourself comfortable before showtime (a rug or your coat to sit on the floor so you're not standing all night).

" when u get banned from one Prince fansite and come back to the first one u became a member of only to be happy that ya did and reconnect with ur felolow fans" (this has happened to me and I'm satisfied now)

" when somebady messes up at a Prince concert and when u leave u're like ' How the HELL did they mess that line up, it's so simple "Rasberry Beret", that's all she had to say, man, people r stupid' and then U remind that person of it 4 the rest of their life and promise to tell Prince when u c him just to make him laugh and get that pic enbedded in ur head"


there a so many ways of being a Prince fan it doesn't end
You can't build something new, without destroying something old

when - a Prince song comes on the radio or in a store, you recognise it within a nanosecond and that its track 8 of the 10th album and Eric Leeds gets credit 4 the horn part!

so what song is it? lol

I haven't done this since Crystal Ball
Thanks for the laughs, arguments and overall enjoyment for the last umpteen years. It's time for me to retire from Prince.org and engage in the real world...lol. Above all, I appreciated the talent Prince. You were one of a kind.
