There are about six-million ways I could start this post but I’m having trouble thinking of the most efficient. I guess I should begin by pointing out the fact that the Vikings primary color is purple and that the great Prince has been a purpophile for over two decades. The only conclusion I can logically think of to explain the two is divine intervention.
Prince allegedly “saw the future” when the Vikings beat the shit out of Dallas last week and wrote this tune the same night. I’m a huge Prince fan. In the age old CD-you’d-take-to-a-deserted-island convo, Purple Rain is definitely in the top five, but this song sounds like a Christian pop-rock band got drunk on communion wine and screwed a college marching band. Listen to the offspring here.
