The Past Is A Foreign Country II: Prince Edition
I was spending time recently (and by "recently" I mean ten minutes ago) correcting metadata on my huge, messy collection of music files, and finding the the perfect cover art for every file. This is something that I spend a lot of time doing, and something I likely will be doing until the day I die. Be that as it may, I came upon a song by Prince called "I Wanna Be Your Lover," which he recorded in 1979 when he was 21 years old, and was his first chart hit. While searching for the proper cover art, I came across some interesting promotional photos of the artist formerly known as The Artist Formerly Known as Prince, and I felt compelled to share them. Two things I took away from this: 1) No matter how cool you think you are, or how cool you've convinced everybody else to think you are, at some point you were probably a huge dork, and 2) I'd hit that. You betcha.
