Apr-28-16  ljfyffe: Prince continues his artistic motif; he presents himself as the Lion of Judah, the Messiah, who in Revelations <hath prevailed to open the book, and loose the seven seals thereof>Rev. 5:5. His mission is to guide blacks to freedom in the US even as the Hebrews escaped the tyranny of the Roman Empire under the control of the antiChrist, Nero. Prince Nelson will do this through his music: <And they sung a new song, saying, 'Thou art worthy to take the book, and open the seven seals.....and we shall reign on the earth>(Rev. 9 and 10.)
There will be suffering and martyrdom represented by the horsemen of war, famine, death, but in the eventually the people shall be free:

<Like the Lion of Judah/
I strike my enemy down/
Surely you gonna hear the trumpet sound/
As my God is living/
Surely the trumpet will sound.>

(Prince: The Lion of Judah)

Like the Romantic transcendentalists Emerson and Thoreau urged, liberty will be gained by peaceful means through the leadership of conscienctious individuals; they will conquer in the purple rain/reign.

Apr-28-16  ljfyffe: Like William Blake yearned for in England, so Prince envisioned a New Jerusalem being built in America.

Apr-28-16  HeMateMe: Joan Rivers, circa 1980:

"Have you seen this new guy, Prince? Have you SEEN this guy?? He makes Michael Jackson look like a Green Beret!"

Joan got off some great one liners, RIP. I hope she told off Johnny Carson on her way through the pearly gates.

Apr-29-16  ljfyffe: Of course, Prince is not the only singer/songwriter to associate the biblical tribe of Judah, symbolized by thr Lion, and the coming of a Messiah to ferment social change, whether personal or political, with the singing of inspiritual songs (<and they sang a new song> as above mentioned.
From
Revelations:. Chapter 5, verse number 9)

Now you heard it here first...this could very well be the reference for the Beatles....<number 9, number 9, number 9...>

Anyway:

"And any time you feel the pain, hey Jude, refrain/
Don't carry the world upon your shoulders/
For well you know it's a fool who plays it cool/
By making the world a little colder"
(Beatles: Hey Jude)

There's the pun: <refrain>( to hold back), is also a term used in music writing. Artists create works that can be interpreted on a number of levels, ie, messiahs can be extremists or compassionate, by holding back; being peaceful.

Apr-29-16  ljfyffe: Messiahs have a way of ending up dead....one way or another...by hanging on a cross, by guns or drugs....simply for singing inspirational songs in some cases... <The way things are going, they're going to crucify me>The Ballad Of John And Yoko)
