After the 57-year old recording maverick Prince’s untimely passing in 2016, we opt to remember him fondly in the best way we know how: singing “Little Red Corvette.” The timeless tune came to the legendary musician while he slept in back-up singer Lisa Coleman’s pink Edsel after pulling an all-nighter at the studio. When he woke, he laid down the basic structure of the song, and slowly built around it. Funnily, he got the point where he was so intent on finishing the song, he couldn’t sleep. The man, the myth, the legend wouldn’t stop until something was the best it could possibly be–just like the simple perfection of a “Little Red Corvette.”
