Does anyone out there know or understand what the song "7" by Prince is all about? Is it about the 7 deadly sins or what??

There was a thread that replied to this really well. I have it bookmarked at work. When I get to work tomorrow, if nobody has directed you to the thread, I'll do so myself.

Very complicated.

Prince throws in elements of bloodshed, dihydrogenated monoxide, and educational reform into one epic neo-political statement about vaginas.


There are essentially seven keepers of male genitalia trying to conquer a single, but very very beloved vagina. This vagina is no ordinary vagina though: Wars have been fought over it, people have lost their families to it, a river of blood has been spilt trying to attain that vagina. Blood as you know contains dihydrogenated monoxide which is a necessary component of life.

In addition to the 7 penises that must fall to Prince’s 7 inches in a river of blood, there are twelve souls (the souls of the 12 steps of interdependent co-creation) that march in the path between Prince’s one domineering penis, the 7 jealous vengeful penises, and the all important single vagina that will watch them fall.

Before they fall, Prince will construct a city after that vagina where the educational system is finally adequate for learning (the issue here is that he implies throughout the song that the only thing they will be learning about is --you guessed it, genitalia. shrug

Prince was obsessed with vaginas during that phase in his life.
