I have always been most intrigued by the social worker, the CEO (or the industrial feudal) and the Intellectual. To me they've gone so microscopic, they've lost sight of, why they started to begin with, the big picture, the common sense. The theatricality of their existence is both funny and mind boggling!

Look at that mama all dolled up
Each nuance, each look, smiles, rehearsed
Speech controlled, gestures muted, angles sold
Scowls or charm ready to unfold
Some may argue she is deluded
Says she, I'm crazy not stupid!

Here comes the Mayor always Mr Right
Chief of all, holds no lowly gripes
Well-heeled, groomed enchants your pants down
Coy and reserve, game to brow beat
Nothing to say yet he's so fluid
Oh please, he's crazy not stupid!

Ah, there stand Messrs Know-it-all
Shoulders laden with chip-like logs
Befuddled and always at odds
Forgot long since which they fight for
In the fuzz their logic's rooted
Come on they're "crazy not stupid!" - Omar Alavi

•
🎵Eric Leeds - Work With Prince:

🎵Reflection:
📌Initial recording dates for the studio version are unknown, but it is likely that the track was recorded in early 2003. No recording studio information is given, but it is likely that the track was recorded at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. 🎵Trivia: 📌Although Prince released two albums and multiple downloads during 2003, this track is the only studio track to include vocals released during 2003. This track has only been performed live twice; both times (in 2004 and 2007) it was performed by Prince with former bandmember Wendy Melvoin on acoustic guitar.
•
🎵3RDEYEGIRL:
📌Prince first denied being linked with 3rdEyeGirl, but it soon appeared that the entity was under his control as a Twitter account streaming official Prince material was launched in the first days of January 2013, shortly followed by a website, 3rdEyeGirl.com, selling official material (linked with a paypal account belonging to NPG Records Inc.).
Prince recruited Hannah Ford in September 2012 as a guest drummer for the "Welcome 2 Chicago" three show-residency, after seeing videos of her performing on line.

🎵The Time:
📌By 1982, the group had already established itself as one of the hottest bands working the live circuit. In 1983, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis were fired from the band, after pursuing a career as producers. The band split in 1984 When Morris Day left. The original six members (plus Jerome Benton) reunited in 1990 but despite expectations, the reunion only brought moderate success.
•
🎵Vanity 6:

•
🎵Sheila E.:
📌She's co-founder (along with Lynn Mabry) of the "Lil' Angel Bunny Foundation", an organization that "provides abused, abandoned and severely emotionally disturbed children compassionate care by implementing an alternative method of recreational and education therapy through music and the arts and funding special services and programs that assist the needs of these children using these fundamental methods".
•
🎵Eric Leeds - Work With Prince:
📌Eric Leeds was introduced to Prince in 1984 by his brother Alan Leeds who was working for Prince as a tour manager since early April 1983. Alan had mentioned Eric to Prince and played him cassettes of his playing, so when Prince was looking for a saxophone player to play on The Family project he asked Alan to call his brother and ask if he was interested in flying from Atlanta, where Eric was living at the time, to Minneapolis to do some recordings.

This extended Paris' soul and gospel influences to bring in hip-hop and house music and featured the track "If I Love U 2 Nite", written by Prince and recorded at his Paisley Park studios. • 🎵Contribution: 📌is the second studio album by British soul singer Mica Paris, and was released in October 1990 in the UK and in February 1991 in the USA (on the same day as Times Squared by Eric Leeds, also featuring musical input by Prince). The album contained one track written by Prince, If I Love U 2 Nite, although the album didn't contain any musical input by Prince, as the track was re-recorded by Paris' musicians (Prince later worked on a different version of the track with Mayte). • 🎵If I Love U 2 Nite: 📌(a.k.a. If I Love You Tonight and If Love U 2night) was originally released as the the third track on Mica Paris' second album Contribution, and soon after the album's release, If I Love U 2 Nite was released as the album's third and final single (an early version of the 12" single inadvertently included Prince's version of the song as an uncredited track). • COMMET/SHARE UR STORY BELOW IF U ATTENDED ONE OF THESE EVENTS ✌️️💜 • #ControversyTour  #1999Tour  #PopLife  #PurpleRainTour  #BRITAwards  #Reflection  #Per4mingLive3121  #MorrisHayes  #Mayte  #TravisSmileyshow  #3121atRioHotelandCasino  #LasVegasNevadaUSA  #CoraColemanDunham  #JoshDunham  #RenatoNeto  #GregBoyer  #MaceoParker
