If he had no human emotion he wouldn't have written Nothing Compares 2 U.
The letter "2" is obviously in his alien alphabet and represents many more meanings and dimensions than our simple understanding of it only representing a numerical value. Prince's alphabet incorporates both the language of math and words which combine to form a deeper understanding we can not yet interpret until David Lynch and his friends bring us world peace and expanded consciousness. All we see is "To You". Prince needs to sleep in his depervation chamber for 3 weeks even when he simply thinks about "2 U".
Mostly compiled from my "most played" list in itunes and songs that hold an important moment in my life. It was far harder to get to a firm forty than I thought it would be; I kept thinking of songs and then dismissing them 'cause of that word "EVER".

Figuring that I would not have much time to listen to music over the next few days (See MARCH MADNESS), I decided to go ahead and crack a few beers and sift through Grooveshark in an effort to compile my Top 40 for ya'll's listening (dis)pleasure (I'll let you be the judge should you decide to wade into the chud list). (NOTE: this was my first time ever using Grooveshark. BOY HAVE I BEEN MISSING OUT!)
The playlist is not in the same order as the list I posted. I thought it would be better to mix it up a bit, not for any specific reason, just because.
The only song I could not find was the studio version of Suha by Xiu Xiu. However, I was able to find the even more haunting liver version from the Live in Germany album. I think of this as a bonus.
Also, I chose to represent "Take Me Out To The Ball Game" by none other than Harry Caray. I placed the song towards the end of the playlist, roughly where I thing the 7th inning stretch should occur. Should you happen to make it that far, I suggest you stand up and stretch it out a bit. Heck, if you're feeling lucky, feel free to join in and help Harry out.
So, without further ado, listen and or don't. Remember, Prince forgives.
