6 ‘Let’s Go Crazy’ Talks About Dying In An Elevator
The 1984 song “Let’s Go Crazy” from the album Purple Rain contains the following lyrics that seemed inocuous enough at the time but, in retrospect, are incredibly eerie.
And if de-elevator tries to bring you down
Go crazy – punch a higher floor
And when we do (When we do)
What’s it all for (What’s it all for)
You better live now
Before the grim reaper come knocking on your door
Tell me, are we gonna let de-elevator bring us down?
Oh, no let’s go!
Prince died in the elevator of his own home in Minneapolis.
