It was the first music I ever bought for myself; a 45 from No. 1 Record Shop, when it was on the Bay Street side of Independence Sq. I was 12.
My brother had reversed one of the stereo speakers, and I would play that record, sing along and tape myself. It was great, because I found those tapes ten years later and laughed my ass off.
In any case, “Let’s Go Crazy” always has the ability to lift the worst of my moods, even if it’s only for a little while. In fact Purple Rain, always does.
In any case, what’s happened over the last year is that juni’s encouragement has built in to all the good memories I have associated with listening to this song…
…so junipersniffer… here’s a little thanks for being a friend.
In fact, it’s a little thanks to all of you that leave comments and send emails to check up on me, and my mates that call me to make sure I am okay. Thanks all of you.
