Sometimes when Prince won't play, you go with Morris instead:

Here's Willie: What a Face



The words to "Supermarket" (written by Tony Glover) have great social and political import, but you can't really hear them unless you have the record.

When you hear Willie growling, you might not think of him as a sensitive, philosophical type, but he really is:

VOICE IN THE NIGHT

In the middle of the night, in my room alone,
Searching for the lost harmony,
My voice once more wavers, I get up to walk out
There's a feeling won't come out of me.

As I walk the silver streets, I'm haunted by the faces
Of some of the young ones that I see ,
And that feeling, never really gone,
but sometimes I misplace it
These young rebels bring it back to me.

Is there a voice in the night
When you're all alone
Is there a better thing to do with your life
Than to give it to a song
-- baby I don't know.


You don't know me from Adam;
you're young, you think I'm old
That's the way we see
But there are young and old alike
don't believe all they've been told
Maybe that's you; baby that's me.

So many of my own generation
Faded back into the world
After putting in their time staring down the illusion
This world is hard to understand -- it's hard to withstand.

Is there a voice in the night
When you're all alone
Is there a better thing to do with your life
Than to give it to a song
-- baby I don't know.


Hey, turn off that TV and pick up your guitar
Let the confusion out your soul
Confusion out your soul and let the wisdom blow
out your brain
Pick up your guitar and let your wisdom rain.

Try to emerge from the world of narrow dreams
It will not let you go
If you can reach the other side you must see the tragedy
It's a hard way to go -- a hard way to go.

I stood boldly just like you; owned by my destiny, too
I knew the right way, knew the wrong
But in the tremble of an eye twenty years can rumble by
And if you still travel the path you started on --
Life can make you lonely,
and make the nights so long.
But maybe you'll have found some truth and put it in a song...
If that's true maybe loneliness won't matter much to you.

Is there a voice in the night
When you're all alone
Is there a better thing to do with your life
Than to give it to a song
-- baby I don't know.

One leading Twin Cities Funkonaut is Mark Brown. He named his band Brown Mark. Then he changed the name to Brownmark, and then BrownMark.

Prince still favors ladies as band members.

This helps foster gender equality in the popular music field.

Brother Tavis: “In no particular order, since we mentioned 'Dreamer' first, tell me about 'Dreamer.'"

Prince Rogers: “Oh, well, when I saw the 'State of the Black Union,' Dick Gregory really moved me and a lot of my friends. I show it to everybody who comes over the house, especially white folks, because they need to hear that, so that they know more about all of us. Because what he said affects all of us.

He said something that really hit home about this phenomena of chem-trails and when I was a kid, I used to see these trails in the sky all the time and I’d say, 'Oh, that’s cool – a jet just went over.' And then you started to see a whole bunch of them and the next you know, everybody in your neighborhood was fighting and arguing and you didn’t know why, okay?

And you really didn’t know why. I mean, everybody was fighting. So he started riffing about the chem-trails and he started to say things that hit home so hard, and I would recommend that everybody try to get what he said online or wherever, and try to get a copy of it and just listen to it, because I was so moved that I had to write the song.

The other thing is the first line of the song says I was born on the same plantation in the United States of the red, white and blue, and we live in a place now that feels just about like a plantation.

We’re all indentured servants. When I found out there were eight presidents before George Washington, I wanted to smack somebody. I wanted to know why I was taught otherwise. Just tell me the whole story – I’ll fill in the blanks. But don’t tell me something that you think I’m supposed to know.”

Brother Tavis: “We’re indentured servants and we’ve got an ebonic president now?”

Prince Rogers: ”Well, I don’t vote. I don’t have nothing to do with it. I got no dog in that race.”

The kids who knew Prince had North High School said they thought he was a dork.

You heard it here first, because where else would you hear it? geek

FrownFact - Prince Nelson is the only artist to consistently reject Al "Weird" Yankovic's requests for parody homage permission.

FunkFact - Maya Rudolph is currently preforming in residence in San Funkcisco with her female Prince tribute project, which is called "PRINCESS" natch

... and that's why Al's "Darling Dikki" video will never see the light of day. Neutral

So, how can Prince be giving that the thumbs-down? Is it because of his politics? Suspect

Now I understand--Prince is making his first official ruling as "The Art Official," and Al is officially not "The Artist." bounce
