Day Ninteen: Bring 2 Life a Vision in One's Mind

Today's topic is pretty simple, a song from your favorite album. As previously mentioned my favorite album in Prince's "Purple Rain." You can take take the girl out of Minnesota but you can't take the Minnesota out of the girl. . . as they say. I don't really have any pithy anecdotes today nor do I have any waxing of the poetic. So, in an attempt to not spout any more cliches, we'll keep things simple today.

Here it is, one of my all time favorite songs from my all time favorite album. When I saw Prince this summer his performance of this song was my fave part of the show.

At this point in the movie Prince is all sorts of torn up about Apollonia 6 and her inability to choose between him and Morris Day (tough choice-not).

Here it is. "The Beautiful Ones" by Prince.

The Beautiful Ones

Baby, baby, baby
What's it gonna be
Baby, baby, baby
Is it him or is it me?
Don't make me waste my time
Don't make me lose my mind baby

Baby, baby, baby
Can't u stay with me tonight
Oh baby, baby, baby
Don't my kisses please u right
U were so hard 2 find
The beautiful ones, they hurt u everytime

Paint a perfect picture
Bring 2 life a vision in one's mind
The beautiful ones
Always smash the picture
Always everytime

If I told u baby
That I was in love with u
Oh baby, baby, baby
If we got married
Would that be cool?

U make me so confused
The beautiful ones
U always seem 2 lose

Baby, baby,
Baby, baby,
Baby, baby,
What's it gonna be baby?

Do u want him?
Or do u want me?
Cause I want u
Said I want u
Tell me, babe
Do u want me?
I gotta know, I gotta know
Do u want me?
Baby, baby, baby
Listen 2 me
I may not know where I'm going (babe)
I said I may not know what I need
One thing, one thing's 4 certain baby
I know what I want, yeah
and if it please u baby
please u, baby
I'm begging down on my knees
I want u
Yes I do
Baby, baby, baby, baby
I want you

Yes I do
