Hopped in a cab this morning to hear Prince on the radio giving me a little “1999,” making me feel right at home since he’s been in steady rotation on my iPod for about a week now.
That’s all good. I’m smiling, I’m happy, I’m barely managing to keep myself from singing along (especially on my favorite bit: “If you didn’t come to party, don’t bother knockin’ on my door …”). Then the song ends. The song ends and the DJ comes on and tells me that I’m listening to Lite FM.
Lite FM? Srsly?! Since when is Prince in the “easy listening” bin? On behalf of His Purpleness and his many fans, I have to take offense. I mean “1999,” for dance-ability alone, doesn’t belong on this station. What will they play next, “Erotic City” perhaps?
Lite FM. What’s next, Purple Rain as elevator music?
