"I Got Two Sides, and They're Both Friends" - Another "Master of the Sacred and Profane"

I am back from a long hiatus. I wrote, went to CancĂșn, Mexico, for vacation, and wrote some more. I really want to be able to blog consistently, but if I have to choose between blogging and actually writing the book, I will always go with the latter.

With that said, I finished the section on other popular artists' spiritual journeys. That was a tough section because I had to rewrite it after I submitted it to my professor (I got a little carried away with the length). I also had to modify the list of artists. After reading about Stevie Wonder, I determined that his spiritual journey is not really comparable to Prince's spiritual journey. However, I did discover some similarities between Prince and another artist--D'Angelo.

"In his life and in his music, he has always felt the tension between the sacred and the profane, the darkness and the light." -- GQ

I added D'Angelo to the list of other artists covered in the book. I enjoyed learning more about him, and I hope that he releases new music soon!

I am currently finishing chapter five, which covers the Purple Rain era!

What is your favorite D'Angelo song?
