"(Another Lonely) Princely Christmas"

-

How Princely is your christmas going to be like ?

I'm celebrating a lonely Christmas this year, with loads of Prince music, and looking so much forward to it (tonight and tomorrow).

Enjoying making (new) playlists of his music (and others),

Also have a remix in mind of the "Colleen" track (I'm going to add some vocals to it for personal use), Are there people here that do the same with Prince's tracks ?

...

And watching the DVD from the '1999' box set.

Plus, enjoying this great gem year after year around this time:

(presuably Prince had some lonely Christmases too, due to his later believes)

ANOTHER LONELY CHRISTMAS

Last night I spent another lonely Christmas
Darling, darling, you should've been there
'Cause all the ones I dream about
You are the one that makes my love shout, you see
You are the only one I care for
Remember the time we swam naked
In your father's pool?
Boy, he was upset that night
But boy, was that ever cool
Remember the night we played Pokeno for money
And you robbed me blind
Remember how you used to scream so loud
'Cause you hated that number nine
Hey, I saw your sister skating on the lake
This afternoon
Good heaven, how she's grown
She swoons the boy skaters she's so tall
But of all your father's children
All your father's children, baby, you know
You are the finest of them all
You are brighter than the northern star and I
Last night I spent another lonely Christmas
Darling, darling, you, you should've been there
You see, of all the ones I dream about
You are the one that makes my love shout
You see, you are the only one I care for, yeah
My momma used to say "always trust your lover"
Well, now I guess that only applies to her
'Cause baby, you promised me
Baby you promised me you'd never leave
Then you died on the twenty-fifth day of December
Oh, baby
Last night I spent another lonely, lonely Christmas
Darling, baby, you, you should've been there, now
'Cause all the ones I dream about
You are the one that makes my love shout, you see
You are the only one I care for
Your father said it was pneumonia
Your mother said it was strep
But the doctor said you were dead and I
I say it's senseless
Every Christmas night for seven years now
I drink banana daquaris 'til I'm blind
As long as I can hear you smilin' baby
You won't hear my tears
Another lonely Christmas is mine
Yeah, mine
Yeah
Another lonely Christmas is mine
Last night, yeah, I spent another lonely, lonely Christmas
Darling, darling, you should've been there, yeah
'Cause all the ones I dream about
You are the one that makes my love shout, you see
You are the only one I care for
Another-other, hee, hee

Happy Christmas, hope you, or anyone else for that matter doesn't have a lonely Christmas, but will be playing the 1999 deluxe a lot!

Uh..no, not me. If I could though, I might add my own "muthafucka" right behind him screaming "Mayday!" on Little Red Corvette.

Does anyone hear a little Beatles influence on this great track. Also, his drums are fierce.

Exactly !
I’ve been thinking this also for years.
This could’ve been a Lennon track, if you want to.
And again, I too think this is a track with one of his best drumming.
Love the singing/longing bass too.
