He started braggin' over the beat, so I guess it made sense, but it didn't continue the song's message necessarily. I dug it, "I got peace sign sneakers, pleated slacks..." He used to do his own remixes, and expand the original song to whole other territory. I followed him down every groove segue I could get my hands on. cool

"Heavuuuuuun, Sugar Baby!"

I remember this like it was yesterday. I wasn't enjoying Part 1, 'cause it sounds so much thinner than the album version, but then Part 2 showed up and just blew my damn mind. Then Part 3 is so groovy, with those weird clunky sounds, sort of like a heavily-flanged something being conked into something else.

One thing, though: I always thought it was 'peace sign speakers'. I remember thinking about how cool they would look in that '67 T-Bird...

This is vinyl gold. One of my most cherished 12"

It blew me away, and on the other side with the equally awesome scarlet pussy, what more could anyone want?

I miss 12 inch extended remixes sad

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!!

know what u mean about the sound being thin. i took my copy back to our price cos i thought the kiss in it was a scratch lol. "say hello to my little friend...the blue angel" followed by one of his most blistering guitar solos, doesn't get much cooler than that. and to murky the waters even more i've always heard the line as "p-size sneakers" lol

don't play me...i'm over 30 and i DO smoke weed....

Man, when I first heard that joint on my local college hip-hop show back in 1988, my brother and I flipped our wigs. We called the station and was like "yo, is that the new single?" The dj said he was shocked too by the pure funk. He said he was checking parts 2 + 3 and had to spray air freshener in the dj booth cause it was so funky! I really first heard it live in concert right before the single dropped in 1988 at the Hartford Civic Center in CT. I couldn't get it out my mind for about a month after that.

For me Prince can sing about Jehovah or heaven or about or anything he wants as long as it sounds this great.

Also for me pts. 2 and 3 always seemed a prelude to Puff Daddy's' All About The Benjamins with that incongruous and hypnotic beep beep beep...beep beep..beep beep beep. Talk about taking this beat ufo

Thanks for the laughs, arguments and overall enjoyment for the last umpteen years. It's time for me to retire from Prince.org and engage in the real world...lol. Above all, I appreciated the talent Prince. You were one of a kind.

And what about that jacket art! If I ever become a millionaire, I'm getting a boogie van with a mural of the front cover on one side, and the back cover on the other. cool
