LOVE SIGN

Sorry if this has been mentioned. I personally love this song. It's upbeat and it's really catchy too. On a scale from 1-10 , what would you guys give it? Oh, i actually saw the video about two days ago, Nona Gaye is beautiful and that was the smallest I've ever seen Prince, does anyone agree?

Making love and music are the only things worth fighting for.

Both the original version and Shock G's remix on Crystal Ball are awesome.

Random Fact - the music video for this was directed by none other than Ice Cube.

Is the remix the same version on crystal ball as the work? Cuz if so I was about to do a topic on it saying just how good it is and how lately I've been opening up to listening to things I never before:

THIS TO ME IS WHAT PRINCE IS ABOUT, FINDING NEW THINGS EVEN IF THEY ARE 16 YEARS OLD biggrin

LOVE this song, very dark, sensual and mysterious...

I wish Prince had released, in the mid-90s, an album full of this kind of dark-sexy funk/modern R&B tracks...Come had some cheesy & upbeat dance tracks, like Loose, that completely destroyed the flow of the album...

I like the song, but all those boring remixes are certainly not my cup of tea.

Nope. The Crystal Ball remix uses samples from DMSR. The Work has an unreleased version, also found on this boot:

It's called Ted's Funky Chariot Mix and is the complete remix of an edited version that was part of the NPGMC Ahdio Show downloads. "Ted" is Teddy Riley.

The songs on the above bootleg were supposed to be on an official EP. They're really cool if you like the song, but the sound quality isn't that great. Maybe there's better copies of these songs since this boot was released, but I haven't found them.

If prince.org were to be made idiot proof, someone would just invent a better idiot.

Cool song! I saw Prince and Nona do it at a Glam Slam show, there's a boot out there with it on there. I believe they also sang it live on some morning show at the time.

music

Pop, pop, pop go the pistol
Bang, bang, bang go the gun

If U're sick of evil knocking on your door
Throw up the love sign once and 4 ever more
If U'd rather make love and have a little fun
Throw up the love sign everybody and not the gun


In a chariot of red and gold
The cool, fuzzy voice said "Come save your soul"
Before the fear of rejection reared its head
He stood before the masses and calmly said

If U're sick of evil knocking on your door
Throw up the love sign once and 4 ever more
If U'd rather make love and have a little fun
Throw up the love sign everybody and not the gun

In the day of where and why we all belong
Don't nobody wanna hear a silly love song
And if they did then we would sing it on the news
While U're aiming your gun at me and I'm aiming back at U

Pop, pop, pop go the pistol
Bang, bang, bang go the gun


If U only had one year left 2 live
What good is the time U spend if U got no love 2 give?
Let's all get up off the front and find a cause 2 back
Then we could teach the babies replications of the act, of the act

If U're sick of evil knocking on your door
Throw up the love sign once and 4ever more
If U'd rather make love and have a little fun
Throw up the love sign everybody and not the gun

Pop, pop, pop go the pistol
Bang, bang, bang go the gun

Show us the love sign, we want the love sign
Show us the love sign
Show us the love sign, we want the love sign )
Show us the love sign

this too shall pass

It was sung live on The Today Shoe live with Bryant Gumbel(a big Prince fan)

It was sung on The Today Shoe live with Bryant Gumbel(a big Prince fan). This song would have been a big hit if The WB approved of Prince releasing it. But after the mega hit song TMBGITW. WARNERS STOPPED IT FROM BEING RELEASED. Nona Gaye was so beautiful in the video. The video fit the song. Unlike most Prince videos. Ice Cube should have won best director for this.

princes like a "ACT OF GOD" N another realm.Of all people who might b aliens,angels.if found out prince wasn't of this earth, eye would not b surprised, prince is looking 4 like-minded individuals 'Y should eye do this becuz every1 is doing it?'"

I give it a 10, one of my favorite Prince songs. Not only is her voice gorgeous but his voice perfectly complements hers, plus a positive message, plus funky music, especially in the crystal ball version. I'm not as fond of the "pop pop pop go the pistol..." phrase on other versions.
