I can't listen to Lady Cab Driver

This song really creeps me out. I listened to it over and over and it still creeps me out. Its that part toward the end where it sounds like the woman is being raped..i dunno i just can't listen to this song.

Does anyone else know what I mean?

He's giving her a passionate fuck. As she's the cab driver she's the one in control as, assuming it's a normal cab (I always imagine a yellow US one) she'd have had to leave her driving seat and the safety it provides.

It's one of those animal fucks. One of those pure release ones that can often be a domination of the female. But then when you look at it the woman appears to have given herself quite happily and is more than accepting of that which she is getting. Possibly getting off on the domination of it too perhaps. If there's any there that is.

Damn funky song too. One of his best in my opinion.

PS: Glad my missus doesn't make that much noise though. Having lived in a flat for many years of our life (not now though) and also having a daughter we've learnt how to have prison sex when the need arises. In fact we had it this very morning wink It was sweaty, muffled and lovely. Nothing nicer than waking up to a pretty face and curvy creamy bod.

I love the song, I haven't listened to it in 6 months or so, and I have already digested the animal side of Prince so nothing that He says in his music bothers me, although I don't recall her being dominant.

What is funny is that I have a black sequin cap for this position. cool

I'm not in any way a dominant female in that sense, but I can drive.

Classic raw Prince.....brilliant.
Fuck the funk - it's time to ditch the worn-out Vegas horns fills, pick up the geee-tar and finally ROCK THE MUTHA-FUCKER!! He hinted at this on Chaos, now it's time to step up and fully DELIVER!!
woot!

I guess this is my favourite Prince tune ever. Not about the lyrics, but the way it sounds. The combination of the Linn together with them live drums... That snare, so simple, tight. Same thing with that bass. To me, this is the way a Prince song sounds. I love it!

Please, it sounds like Jill is getting dicked down real good to me. Doesn't sound like rape to me or she'd be screaming with fear in her voice which I don't hear. Sheeeeit, I need to find me a man real quick behind all that! lol
I'm not a fan of "old Prince". I'm not a fan of "new Prince". I'm just a fan of Prince. Simple as that

where did this "RAPE" stuff come from?

RAPE does not sound like THAT in my opinion.

maybe there would be a "STOP!" or "GET OFF!" scream, and some slaps or something.

they was just getting it mayne, she was moaning and screaming from pleasure. thats how they sound in porn (faking it but u know how that goes)

He was just taking his aggression out on her- but it soudned like she was ignoring it.

seriously get off that rape tip. ITS NOT.

I have never heard rape in that song. Ever.
I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

It did kind of sound like that to me, too. Not that the song says definitively either way, but for him to be taking out his problems on her reminds me of how people say rape isn't sexual but it's about power. So a person who is powerless about not being "handsome & tall" or about other world problems asserts power on this woman.

Of course he turns it all around in the end, so the hateful act becomes a loving one. It's just a creative way of speaking on the song, so even if it's a rape scenario it's not evil, just expressive.

Probably one of his best moments:

This is 4 the cab U have 2 drive 4 no money at all
This is 4 why I wasn't born like my brother, handsome and tall
This is 4 politicians who r bored and believe in war
This -- Yeah, that's 4 me, that's who that 1's 4
This is 4 discrimination and egotists who think supreme
And this is 4 whoever taught U how 2 kiss in designer jeans
That 1's 4-- That 1's 4-- 4 U have 2 live
This 1's 4 the rich, not all of 'em, just the greedy
The ones that don't know how 2 give
This 1's 4 Yosemite Sam and the tourists at Disneyland
And this 1-- ooh! Yeah -- That's the 1.
That's 4-- that's 4 the-- the creator of man
This is 4 the sun, the moon, the stars, the tourists at Disneyland
This is 4 the ocean, the sea, the shore
This is 4-- and that's 4 U, and that's who that 1's 4
This is 4 the women, so beautifully complex
This 1's 4 love without sex
This is 4 the wind that blows no matter how fast or slow
Not knowing where I'm going
This galaxy's better than not having a place 2 go
And now I know (I know)

You must be with that Christian League trying to atone for the sins of the church or something. I hear a woman getting the shit fucked out of her and LOVING it.

Rape? Shiiiiit! I listen to this almost every week. It's one of Prince's best songs. Funk, funk and pure funk. Only the early Prince fans would know what I'm talking about. This is vintage Prince.

The song doesn't deal with love making, it deals with a woman being fucked. Maybe this person hasn't either fucked a woman properly or been fucked, well, before.
