The Apocalypse of Prince

The Apocalypse of Prince

With Prince passing away, I decided to listen to his albums before work and his song Seven┬ácame up. I’ve linked to the Video. I thought it was interesting in that Prince, raised a Jehovah Witness would have been familiar with the apocalyptic literature of the Bible and Seven is potpourri of apocalyptic ideas and phrases in a love song. I wonder how the way Prince uses apocalyptic language compares with the ancient writers of apocalyptic literature. Sure theirs were political statements, not love songs, but it is all poetry.
