RIP, Prince (1958-2016)...

More than three months after the world lost David Bowie, another legendary music icon passed away today. The first Prince song that I ever heard, I believe, was "Batdance" from Tim Burton's first Batman film. There were other songs by Prince that were on the movie's soundtrack (I bought it on cassette— Yes, I'm old), but Batdance was the one that played on radio stations everyday back in the summer of 1989. I definitely can't recall how many times I listened to this awesome tune on the radio and tape. It wasn't one of his classics, but Batdance was just one example of the kind of stylistic and catchy music that Prince came up with over the last 40 years. Rest In Peace, Purple Rain... You will be missed.
