didn't she create this with Prince or while with Prince?

What's the matter with your life
Is poverty bringing U down?
Is the mailman jerking U 'round?
Did he put your million dollar check
In someone else's box?
Tell me, what's the matter with your world

No,this was recorded with producer Tim Simenon ("Bomb The Bass")...the same guy who produced Neneh Cherry's "Buffalo Stance" hit.

Throughout 1988/early 89,Cat and Prince were working on her solo album.That project featured songs like "Cat and Mouse","Cat Attack","9 Lives","A Man Called Jesus" and other songs.Don't know what happened,but it was never released.Cat then began working with Tim on a planned album titled I Am Energy'."Catwoman" was released as the first single in late 1989,but the album was never released.

I admit,the song is kinda noisy...it's hard to imagine US radio stations playing this.

For a first single,she needed a song that was more melodic and catchy.

I think the other song “Now It Rains” is better

I remember a lengthy interview with Cat from some magazine in 1989.I wish I still had it....there was lots of info about the "Catwoman" song and the planned album I Am Energy.
