Let’s go Crazy

The famous track opens up Prince’s iconic album ‘Purple Rain’.

What blows my mind about this song is that besides the intro and outdo, it almost entirely comprises of two chords that repeat.

Between verse and chorus, Prince very cleverly arranged the music in a way to transform the energy of the song. Mainly it’s through his charisma as a performer.

The film version is also 7 minutes long!

It makes me wonder though, what are the possibilities of creation. If you could only use two chords, what would you do with them?

I think setting yourself a parameter like that, makes you approach creativity in ways you did not previously consider.

Prince did go crazy and so can you!
