Yeah, it hurts. My wife actually died at Christmas time. And when I hear this, I think of her. But the funny thing is, the song itself doesn't move me at all. I think Prince was trying way too hard to write a tearjerker here, it all feels a little overblown. The only thing that stands out are the drums- live drums were a rarity on Prince's records at this time. So it's more the idea behind the song, which reminds me about a very sad part of my life than the song itself that hurt me. Still, this is one of the reasons I'm a Prince fan: I know no other artist who has written songs that reflect my life as much as he did. Even if it's a song I don't like very much, it still means something very special.
