Raspberry Beret music and lyrics by Prince, piano solo by Laura
Growing up in beautiful Choteau, Montana (population 1800), we had one movie theatre, the Roxy, open only on the weekends. To my delight, in 1984, the Roxy showed Purple Rain, starring Prince. As a young high school desperate to explore places and faces outside of my hometown, I was mesmerized by the music, the story, and of course, the romantic vision of Prince cruising down the open road on his motor bike! Vroom!
Today, and homage to Prince, an amazing talent and unique artist! Oh how I long to be as cool as the elusive girl in Raspberry Beret.
That’s when I saw her,
Ow I saw her, she walked in through the out door.
She wore a raspberry beret,
of the kind you find in a second hand store.
and if it was warm, she wouldn’t wear much more.
