Prince 1958-2016

Oh, come ON, 2016!

First you take David Bowie, and now Prince?

Why don't you just take all of the musicians I listen to when I want the world to feel okay for a while.

Prince is younger than my damn mother is, and she can barely stand up straight.

For the last couple of decades, all I've had to do when I felt at my absolute lowest was turn on "Raspberry Beret," and anything could feel okay. What a fantastic body of work. Even at his most musically challenging, I've always loved Prince. That Super Bowl halftime show in 2007 brought me to tears. Jesus.

Thanks for everything, man.

2016... knock it off, goddammit.
