Twins Honor Prince

MLB

 

This afternoon tragic news came out of Minnesota – 57 year old rock star Prince Rogers Nelson died.

He was found dead by police at the Paisley Park studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. They were responding to a medical call and found him unresponsive in an elevator.

Prince won seven Grammy’s and earned 30 Grammy nominations. He had 5 #1 singles and 14 other songs were top 10 hits.

Prince changed the Minnesota music landscape forever. During his rise to stardom, his film “Purple Rain,” really boosted him onto the music and entertainment scene. He won an Oscar for best musical score for “Purple Rain.”

For that the Minnesota Twins honored him today by turning all LED screens in the park purple, along with his name and his lifespan on the jumbo tron.

It was extremely fitting on this day of mourning that it rained in Minneapolis.

Everyone at Tha Sports Junkies mourns for the loss for this man who changed music forever.

Here are the lyrics to Purple Rain by Prince –

I never meant to cause you any sorrow
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only wanted to one time to see you laughing
I only wanted to see you
Laughing in the purple rain

Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you
Bathing in the purple rain

I never wanted to be your weekend lover
I only wanted to be some kind of friend
Baby, I could never steal you from another
It’s such a shame our friendship had to end

Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you
Underneath the purple rain

Honey, I know, I know
I know times are changing
It’s time we all reach out
For something new, that means you too

You say you want a leader
But you can’t seem to make up your mind
I think you better close it
And let me guide you to the purple rain

Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
If you know what I’m singing about up here
C’mon, raise your hand

Purple rain, purple rain
I only want to see you
Only want to see you
In the purple rain
