Well, no. But unlike Prince, he doesn’t seem like a dick about this sort of stuff.
(If you don’t hear from me after this post, and maybe my body is found in a shallow grave off 35E, go to Paisley Park and start asking the tough questions about my disappearance, you guys)
Ha! It’s true, but I have a good reason. A few months ago I got this email from Tumblr…
We’ve received a notification of alleged copyright infringement against one of your blogs, sent to us by Jeremy Banks (IFPI, International Federation of the Phonographic Industry), related to audio recordings by Prince.
(blah, blah, blah)
Also, please keep in mind that Tumblr has a strict policy against repeat copyright infringement. Should you be subject to repeat uncontested copyright infringement notifications, your Tumblr account may be terminated.
So, what did I learn from this? If you purchase a Prince song on Amazon, that doesn’t mean you have permission to post it, so I deleted all posts with Prince audio tracks.
The bottom line? PRINCE DON’T PLAY.

She hurt you so bad
You told me you wanted to die
Steve, I’m your best friend
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t try

We all know the movie “Juno” was set in Minnesota, and I have posted this before, but I am just feeling this song tonight. Why? I don’t know. I just have a lot of love for you guys right now.
You are always tryin’ to keep it real,
I’m in love with how you feel.
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else but you.

Bundle Up - The Replacements
This is probably the closest thing to a Christmas song The Replacements ever did, it is a hot mess and I love it.
Stockings were hung by the chimney with care
Santa in the bathroom was a-combin’ his hair
The elves and Rudolph they was a-shootin’ up junk
Not a creature was stirrin’ ‘cause they all was drunk
