I was at the grocery store in Bar Harbor tonight a little bit after 8. Much to my amazement, Prince's "1999" was being played through the store sound system. Not a muzak version -- the real version. Either I shop at a very hip store, or Prince isn't quite as edgy as he once was. Ok, maybe Prince wasn't ever edgy. But still ... I don't think of him as grocery store material. It's hard to know what to make of this.
Update: A friend of mine has pointed out that Prince was recently named the World's Sexiest Vegetarian by PETA. Interesting. Also interesting is that I heard "1999" last night when when I was in the produce section.
