Amazing piece of Prince history, via @RenataK, Lisa Coleman’s wifey.
For those Prince fans that know, Lisa was driving her pink car around, with Prince in the passenger seat. He kept dozing off. But he’d wake up and write a few lines, and doze off again. (The boy was tired, I guess!) The song eventually became “Little Red Corvette”.
One author said,
"With lines like ‘I guess I should’ve known, by the way you parked your car sideways, that it wouldn’t last…’, you almost want to put Prince to sleep again just to see what he comes up with!"
From Renata's Twitter: “It’s a 1964 Mercury Montclair. Bought when she was 19 in MN with prince and we still own. Yes it runs.”
