10 Prince Lyrics That Prove His Love Will Last Forever


Today, as the world reels from the loss of the High Priest of Pop, there will be plenty of Prince blaring from passing cars and open apartment windows.

Devastating as it is to lose an artist who defined a genre, his music's messages -- which ranged from brazenly sexual, to deeply romantic, to wildly celebratory and occasionally morbid -- were a reflection of a life lived free of fear, inhibition or lasting shame.

If you've ever felt certain you share some strong, personal connection with the artist formerly known as The Artist Formerly Known as Prince, you're not crazy. Prince loved every last one of us and left us with a prolific catalog of songs to keep us from ever going numb.
