I love reading about Prince connections with fans. I have a very fuzzy connection with Prince but it's a great time for me to get to know his music now... I've been downloading... Do you have suggestions Brian for a brand new Prince fan?
Plenty of compilations, BK, to explore Prince's range -- and reign :) For starters, check out Ultimate Prince or The Hits & B Sides (multiple volumes). I actually had luck recently revisiting these via the local library's subscription to the Hoopla digital service.
I just talked with my daughter about Prince yesterday, who spoke of her excitement whenever a new album was announced. She has clear memories, like your poem. Beautiful that you connected in a poem.

Love this tribute to a wonderfully creative musician and icon!
I always learn something reading your slices! I had to google what a clerihew was.... How cool to have had that experience while studying abroad. My Prince memory is Julia Roberts singing "Kiss" in the bathtub in Pretty Woman. :)
I too had to look up clerihew. There are Prince posts and connections everywhere I look these days. I like yours best. It's these personal connections that make these stars feel like we know them. I love the line - until our eyelids curled.
