Two Members of Congress Really Love Prince Songs

Jun 25, 2014 4:07pm

Who knew Prince had so many fans on Capitol Hill?

In honor of the 30th anniversary of Prince’s hit album “Purple Rain,” two members of Congress have posted short videos of themselves singing and playing the guitar to two of Prince’s most famous songs.

Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., started the celebration this morning, playing his own rendition of Prince’s song “Purple Rain.”

But Ellison might be confused about the lyrics. “Purple Rain” actually starts with the words “I never meant to cause you any sorrow,” while Ellison says “I never meant to cause you any problems.”

Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., then challenged Ellison, saying his favorite Prince jam is actually “Raspberry Beret.”
