1984, College, Party, Dancing, the Movie.
Prince was everywhere. I remember running off to watch the movies with friends. We did what we could to emulate the dance moves. We were damn awesome for little white college girls. I might credit Purple Rain as the basis of why I love Zumba!
Ruffles, lace, purple,velvet…..anything tactile and sensual.
Partying on an 80’s dance floor to Red Corvette, and Party like it 1999 it brings back awesome memories.
Sitting in a bar in San Antonio last year, they started playing Purple Rain…the whole album. I had several people around me my age…we started sharing stories about our party days and Prince. Why the airport bar played the whole album, I don’t know but it was really fun.
I don’t know what happened to the Artist formerly, or recently, or perpetually known as Prince. But he will ever be a part of my youth.
