A Pioneer or a Prince?

How about both.

I distinctly remember car rides with my mom playing Raspberry Beret. When I got an iPod touch in eighth grade, Little Red Corvette was one of the first songs on there. Last Friday afternoon I walked into history class and stopped short at the sound of Cream playing through the Miller Learning Center speakers.

Prince, famously known for his “Minneapolis sound,” was found dead last Thursday, April 21. Since then fans have been paying tribute at Prince’s Paisley Park complex, as well as in downtown Minneapolis, the area where his synthesized pop and funk style came to be.

So without further ado, this week’s playlist goes out to an artist that will be dearly missed. Keep heaven rockin’, Prince.
