joebudden 32 years ago mom took me to the theater to see Purple Rain, today I took her. We cried, sang along, danced in the aisle & paid homage to a man we made part of our family............. Or to the man who made himself part of ours. Rest in Purple. #Goat 7d

  •   _starbaby_ Joe..he was a part of mine also. My dad passed in 84...b4 passing he'd play PURPLE RAIN over and over. Nights when my sisters. .brother and I had school the next day, He'd be drunk and play it over and over. When he passed 12/5/84 my mom buried The Purple Rain Album with him. It took us years to listen to that song. So great full for the memories. I finally now know why my Dad listen to it, repeatedly. He "never meant to cause us any sorrow"..... 23h

joebudden "Dearly beloved
We are gathered here today
To get through this thing called life
Electric word life
It means forever and that's a mighty long time
But I'm here to tell you
There's something else
The after world
A world of never ending happiness
You can always see the sun, day or night
So when you call up that shrink in Beverly Hills
You know the one, Dr. Everything'll Be Alright
Instead of asking him how much of your time is left
Ask him how much of your mind, baby
'Cause in this life
Things are much harder than in the after world
In this life
You're on your own".........
Today I'll sleep better knowing things are less harder for you in the afterworld... Whats more amazing is, this suffocating feeling I'm currently overwhelmed with you've described perfectly even in your absence... This is what it sounds like when doves cry. We love you..... Actually, no we don't... Love is too weak to define how much you mean to us.
#RestInPurple

joebudden (Cont).. Mike spoke to the world, Prince spoke to me... Both genius, both iconic... Family turmoil birthed two men who were so similar, yet ohhhhhhh so different... "Only thing that matters is what u do when u leave the house.... Your house teaches u who u should be, outside of it teaches u who u are."....
Much like the Soprano's finale, Purple Rain left the ending to my own interpretation (I thought)... I could only imagine what Mike endured as he turned his misfortune to fortune... I never had to imagine w Prince, for me, his misfortune WAS his fortune.
Enter Purple Rain (The song).... Now stop.
Anything I ever pictured Prince going through, feeling, saying, doing, crying, hurting, loving, ANYTHING... Can be felt in the first guitar riff of Purple Rain... And the next... And the next.... It's the greatest song EYE have ever heard. The depths in which it speaks to me are summed in a simple convo w mom.. Mom - play Purple Rain at my funeral.... Me - I want it played at mine & hopefully I leave before u cuz I can't deal.... Her - I get that's how u feel, but it's not how u will feel... Me - how u know?... Her - cuz I raised a stronger man than that...
For me, Prince made it ok to not be ok... That's why I followed him when I saw him exit a plane in an airport that 1 time, that's why performing in Minnesota was always special... I played where Purple Rain was filmed & was star struck as if the man were standing there himself... Cuz while I was losing myself, all the therapists and Psychologists just kept saying "take these & you'll be fine"...... They left me to figure it out just like Prince said they would ("So when u call up that shrink in Beverly Hills, u know the one......"
Your work is immortal to me. Your words are immortal to me. You are immortal to me....... You are immortal to us.

joebudden It's here. The day I've personally feared for what feels like my entire life has finally arrived. So much so that I remember watching Michael & Whitney's funeral, and while they were 2 of the greatest talents we've ever seen, and while I tried to avoid such a mental implosion, I couldn't help but ask the question I never wanted answered...... "Jesus, what will I do if Prince dies?" Allow me to be transparent so y'all understand. Certain ppl/things will forever be grouped in conversation... Biggie/Pac. Nas/Hov. Benz/Bmw. Martin/Malcolm. Mike/Prince. Appropriately so. The Yin Yang theory I subscribed to before I even knew what it was.. Just off sheer logic the world needs opposite sides of the spectrum to be in order.. Wanna keep something, give it away... U love something, let it go... Indifference is what separates us as well as brings us closer.
Indifference. Enter Prince........... I'm positive I was conceived to a Prince song, but that's irrelevant, God is way more calculated than that. In my household, there was Prince and the field, and while Mike is the greatest entertainer ever, for some reason in my household, he was STILL the field.... He just wasn't Prince.

Maaaannnnnnnn I had so many questions for her as a child.. "Why he dress like that ? His hair ? Why is he singing "if I was your girlfriend" if he's a man ? All she ever said was "boy shut up, that's Prince".
Enter Purple Rain (The movie.).... It was no longer about mom anymore. That was the greatest movie I had ever seen back then, not visually, but it taught me about ME AND my family & more importantly, u and yours... Drugs, alcohol, abuse, women, self destruction, coping mechanisms... U name it.... I just didn't know a lot of this was applicable to me and mine... & for some of u, u and yours.... That's when I figured it out.... I figured out why I was more Prince than Mike... I mean, Mike had more demons than many, we got to see the direct result of them on many occasion, his father is Synonymous w child abuse, and he's the best singer/dancer/performer BAR NONE. Mike is in a class alone... He made the best music I ever heard...... But Prince made the best music I ever felt. (1 of 2)
