Celebrating Prince: Day 17 Paisley Park


Track two off the Around the World in a Day album is "Paisley Park." The song has a sound that is reminiscent of the Beetles meets the 70s funkadelic era. It was released in 1994 and was a cult hit.

An official video was released; however, it did not include Prince nor his band. It is the 19th video to be released for broadcast and it focuses on children playing in a very colorful park that has a vibe.

The video is odd, poorly produced, and it makes me wonder this is what it might be like to visit Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch. Whimsical yet weird.

Nonetheless, I added this track to my list because I believe the song is an expression of freedom from "the norm." The song must have had a deeper meaning to the artist though, as it later became the name of his home and recording studio in 1987 (Paisley Park Studios), and also his record label in 1993 (Paisley Park Records).

Sit back and enjoy this trip down memory lane as you imagine yellow submarines and paisley prints, because the magic of Paisley Park is already in your heart.

Michael Jackson: Before & After Thriller

As you may know by now, Michael Jackson will be on the December 2007 issue of Ebony Magazine. They are showcasing him 25 years after "Thriller".

I commend him on still trying to be out there after years of controversy and court cases, but I wish the man had stayed out of the plastic surgeon's office.
