Prince's Lyrics Gave Clues to His Personal Politics

Songs like "Animal Kingdom" and "Ronnie, Talk to Russia" are very telling.

"Prince was more of a social advocate versus being a political advocate," frequent "The View" contributor and creator of Jawn Murray told ABC News. "Prince was more so about the empowerment of the people. We all know he was a man of few words, but when he did speak he made a huge impact."

Prince's impact was most felt in his songs, whose lyrics touched on a variety of issues close to Prince's heart. Here's a sampling of his most powerful music:


"Ronnie, Talk to Russia"

"Sign o' the Times"

"Animal Kingdom"

"Ol' Skool Company"

"Money Don't Matter 2 Night"
