It’s now been two weeks since Prince passed away, and as with all celebrity deaths my social media feed was filled with all kinds of tributes and homages for the late great artist. People paid their respects through stories, artwork, photos, and song. But amidst all that, there were two that really stood out for me.
The combination of sounds and beats is akin to the colors and shapes that create a cohesive piece capable of evoking emotion. This has always been one of the main traits I look for when deciding whether a song is good or not. If it makes us wanna dance, makes us wanna love, or makes us wanna slap someone with a chair, it’s probably got something going for it.
