SONG FOR SUNDAY #22: Prince – Raspberry Beret

Prince - Raspberry Beret

Prince’s Raspberry Beret is our Song For Sunday.

Whether it’s the imagery of the lyrics, the string arrangement, Prince’s voice or a mixture of everything else, you can’t deny the “feel good” of Raspberry Beret. This was a more poppy song than tracks he had done before, but still managing to incorporate unique sonic elements like finger cymbals and a harmonica in an extended version. Since hearing the song, I have yet to see anyone wear the titular “Raspberry Beret” so if any of you out there own one, we’d love to see it.
