A Thursday Interruption: Cooooooooold!

I’m feeling a little melancholy, y’all. It’s that time of year.

First up’s “Sometimes it Snows in April,” Prince’s 1986 mourning for those lost to friends, family, and lovers as a result of the AIDS epidemic, which I think had only been recently named as the cause for so many deaths.

“I dreamt I travelled and found you there — in the woods on Christmas Eve…” (Secretly, I bet the narrator is a jerkface. WHY DOESN’T HE TALK TO HIS SON ENOUGH????)

The added verse is so much about loss and lonliness.

But you know? It’s time to turn that FROWN upside DOWN!

I haven’t ever been to London, but seriously, it sounds AWESOME.

And really? I dare you to not smile at the Maccabeats.
