The haunting beauty of this has always moved me, never more than now. Within the immobilizingly vast legacy of Prince's output and the unbelievable array of fantastic, unmatched performances on video and in recordings by Prince himself - the Franz Liszt of pop/funk/rock - this astonishing performance of this transcendently beautiful, moving and emotionally insightful song gets to me more than anything else he ever did, ironically. I think about the first line - "seven hours and fifteen days" - as if the immediate passing of time in her state is more excruciating than the time that has amassed...what emotional insight! A great poet, a great songwriter, an unbelievable virtuoso...so incredibly tragic to lose him. RIP to a true Prince.
