WHITECAPS

Did a site search on WHITECAPS, seems like lots of people shit all over it when it was released. I like it, it's not the strongest track but it's nice & lulls me in when I let it play. Has a whole new meaning to me now of course, makes me sad (but what doesn't??). Anyway, just showing this track a little love... smile

heart prince I never met you, but I LOVE you & I will forever!! Thank you for being YOU - my little Princey, the best to EVER do it prince heart

I really like it and did when it came out. I know people see it differently, but I think it is a lovely song. I like the arrangement.

I saw whitecaps on the water today
15 Minutes after you went away
Couldn't find a reason to make you stay
It's windy now, but it's gonna be okay

I saw a black butterfly lose it's wings today
Cinched by the candle underneath the archway
Wherever they land they'll have to stay
Who can say, but what a price to pay

Whitecaps on the water
But that's okay
Ain't never been a storm I'm running from
Come my way
Weather man said it would be easy
Over in a day
It's windy now
But it's gonna be okay

For the life of me I just can't recall
It's still a mystery, that's all
'Cause dark gallows lead to brighter holes
And masquerade (Masquerade, masquerade)
Masquerade us all

Whitecaps on the water
But that's okay
Ain't never been a storm I'm running from
Come my way
Weather man said it would be easy
Over in a day
It's windy now
But it's gonna be okay

I saw whitecaps on the water today
15 Minutes after you went away

I don't hate it - but it doesn't light me up in any way, either. I guess I'd call it "pleasant" - the tune is nice, but lyrically - meh. shrug

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

Don't hate the song, but don't think I have ever gone out of my way to listen to it. I would love to hear a version of the song with Prince on lead vocal (maybe it will appear someday?)... but yeah, the lyrics r kind of sad now....

My favorite song from Plectrum. Loved from the moment I first heard it.

I can appreciate him trying to let the ladies shine, but I admit I love when I can hear him just under her vocal, very true. nod

I like the song, just not the '15 minutes' lyric. Too easy, too cheesy. Of course, it's better than any lyrics I never wrote.

I'm very upset with myself for sleeping on this album. I like it a lot.

Why be upset with yourself? Enjoy it now - and be happy (and grateful) that there is something in the Prince canon that is new to you.
