started out as background singer for her cousin Teena Marie. When she met Prince in 1980 at the age of 18 he took her under his wings and she became a member of the legendary Minneapolis gang. In 1987 she released her debut album on Paisley Park. Since then she recorded numerous albums under her own name.
Reminds me of Amsterdam. And also «The Eraser» by Thom Yorke. This one is really wild . NOT recorded in 1986, but it reminds me of a song that someone had written for me once and it had a similar piano and rhythmic quality. We never recorded the song and I don’t even recall it’s name, but when I heard this it brought back a flood of memories for me. Like being handed the cassette. (Yes cassettes people!!!) Well. Even though I sense something familiar, I think this song is wonderful. I love it.
Another world is created for me and I can explore inside my head. Ryuichi has the capacity to tell a story without words. It’s sort of a virtual tour when one listens.
Especially if I am having a dinner party at my house. Down to the last minute preparations. I can just breeze through things.
Dreamy and whimsical.
It’s hard to explain. I love this song. It is empowering and vulnerable at the same time. Sometimes you have to realize your own heart, mind and spirit and trust. Funny there is an exhibit here in NY at the American Natural History Museum right now called «The Horse». It explains how in Ice Age Europe humans were predators and horses prey. The exhibit goes forth through out time and the contributions made by the horse to our civilization.
I could play this forever over and over. I already listen to my music rather loud.
While I’m driving, I don't know, kind of feels like I am in a game. I become very focused. Especially if I get a good stretch to really drive. Me and the Open road! Hard to have those moments. So much traffic everywhere.
I have no idea what the words mean, but it has a reverant kind of quality for me. A certain inner strength. I feel like I can reflect. Look out the window. Feel peaceful.
I was actually shopping the other day listening to this.
Her «Zipless» album is a classic!
NYC, what else can I say! The only reason anyone in their right mind would live here is, if they have an agenda or they got stuck, like me.
