Parade Outtake: I Want 2 Be An Honest Man

Under the Cherry Moon (1986) (Dir. Prince)In honor of Prince&#8217;s birthday I thought I&#8217;d post some Under the Cherry Moon spam. HB, my beautiful little homeboy.

Once upon a time in France

there lived a bad boy name Christopher Tracey

Only 1 thing mattered 2 Christopher... money

the women he knew came in all sizes shapes & colors

and they were all rich, very rich

Private concertos kind words & fun is what he had 2 offer them

yes Christopher lived 4 all women

but he died 4 1

Somewhere along the way he learned the true meaning of love

pinky up, bitches

1. Under the Cherry Moon Outro - Piano Instrumental [Intro Voice over]


2. An Honest Man - Piano Instrumental [Titles]

An Honest Man

I want 2 be an honest man
I'll be your slave, just understand
How much I need U
And if I died
We'll be 2gether side by side

With U I know I can stand, stand
With U I can be an honest man

♥ - poem expressed after this scene when he went to his cave hangout

You are not missing any point, it's just that edit king oldfriends looks for any opportunity to turn a thread into one of his copy n' paste fests.

Now I suppose i'll get an orgnote from him telling me i'm jealous. rolleyes

All my dreams
All my dreams, all my dreams

I'll see U 2night in all my dreams
All my dreams
My spirit's in flight in all my dreams
All my dreams
A submarine valiantly conquers a virgin sea
A child is born, a child is born, will U marry me?

I'll teach U 2night (2night, 2night) in all my dreams
All my dreams
U'll be so surprised (surprised, surprised) at things U'll see
All my dreams
Africa, Cap'n Crunch, Norma Jean, Sex and Cheerio's
Play my record double speed, feel the climax fit 4 a king

Just fun, nothing ethereal

Here ye, here ye, one and all
That the double speed playhouse is making a call

Welcome, this is where I live
This is where I dream my dreams

ripopgodazippa:  The rain sounds so cool when it hits the barn roof ..


2night we'll make love until the world stops turning
U're small but very strong
U move like a cat: quickly but gentle
So insane
He caressed her in her eyes and licked her abdomen
She shivered with delight
Over and over she nibbled his ear
U'd think it was wrong 2 have so much fun


He held her tightly until it almost hurt
But his hips, they moved so slowly
She wanted 2 stop breathing
U can feel every curve of her womanhood
U can see every thought in his brain
A submarine slowly moves through the virgin sea
Oh so slowly
She wants 2 stop breathing
U... U can feel every curve

She squeezes tighter as the submarine goes deeper in depth
Into the unnavigated territory
A smile, ever so slight, appears on his face as she starts 2 cry
Until they come, 2gether, slowly
They wish 4 somethin', as if they could see a parallel future in the sea
They do not speak
They only stare out the moment in time

Lisa, I'm gonna give U the brush and U're gonna paint the side of the train

Marry me 2day and 2night we'll make love until the world stops turning

We'll travel 2night in all my dreams
All my dreams

All my dreams, all my dreams
Goodness will guide us if love is inside us
The colors are brighter, the bond is much tighter
U know no child's a failure
Until the blue sailboat sails him away from his dreams
Don't ever lose, don't ever lose
Don't ever lose your dreams

We'll travel 2night in all my dreams
All my dreams

All my dreams, all my dreams
Goodness will guide us if love is inside us
The colors are brighter, the bond is much tighter
U know no child's a failure
Until the blue sailboat sails him away from his dreams
Don't ever lose, don't ever lose
Don't ever lose your dreams
Yeah

The best parts of Parade:

The transitional drumming from New Position to I Wonder U to UTCM. He did all the drumming for three songs in one take.

The bass on New Position...sweet

The slow groove of I Wonder U..and the ending of it with that heaviness...and that muted horn throughout..and the girls laid back vocal...and the geetar picking at the very end

In UTCM where Prince goes "thats alright" in the breakdown bridge..and you can hear the horns having a field day with headphones

How Girls and Boys has that push me pull you rubbery bottom like Bowie's Fame. When the girls sing I Love U Baby, I Love U so Much--damn!The kazoo keyboard and the linn drum "kuhh!" sound at the end

How Life Can Be So Nice starts up real fast and has that "kah" linn sound at the beginning with the keyboard lines..then it stops when Prince starts to sing...when he says "Kisses never lie" it all starts up again--this is Roadhouse Garden material--really. Then near the end it all comes crashing together with the vocals going wild! the drums live being played furiosly, then it ends abruptly. I see where D did with Untitled.

How Venus just pops up giving the sense of having just reached climax and now your laying there letting it happen....and the mournful horns polaying near the end--I picture an overcast dock when they play..and that last piano key played

Then the very best part is the opening of Mountains..that linn drum making it like rubber and the "puh puck' sounds interlaces throughout the fake heavy drums...the falsetto--nice and "dry"...the part that says "the sea would one day overflow with all your tears, and love will always leave ya lonely"..the ethereal choir (or is it synth) that gets higher in register...the horn blasts like staccato keyoard synths..the break fucking down...the part where he says "guitar and drums on the one, huh!"..then the guitar strumming..slurp..then part where he goes "and the girls say/sing"...

the bass seprated in Do U Lie...when he says "mama mama" or something like that..and when he comes back for the bridge and says "when I lie..."

the JB geetar lick that opens Kiss..almost like a reverse of when Venus starts, inside out..the push push sound like moving furniture...the denseness of the production..sounds like its "air tight"...the drum sound and that synth tha spounds like nothing else...the wah wah geetar part..saying Dynasty, one of the only few pop culture references hes ever used..the ending geetar licks like its being strangled

the droning strains of Anotherlover..and the drums beating like they're waitng for something..then the boom of the piano and sludge...the bottomness of the whole song..his lackadaisical singing..(this song is POP Life inside out btw)...how the girls etc sing with Prince a few beats behind then it all comes together for the chrous after the second verse...the geetar strains in th e bridge..and when he says "baaad"...thers gonna be a riot and when they say that thers that piano key rise real quick


Sometimes Snows In April..The "ahs ahs oh ohhhs", the tuba sounding Prince singing with that first ones..then the real horn blwoing...the strumming of the acoustic...the chorus voices mixed on the title part and when they sing "sometinmes I feel so bad"...when he says "now looking at his picture I realize"...

This was a joy to read. You captured the best parts of this album perfectly.

For me Right now and it's probably been lasting for about 2 years and still going strong this Album just feels great to me spiritually and in general. It really started in the late 80's when I was watching the movie I heard where Biz Markie" something for the radio" sampled from "New position".

Now I was always crazy about the Biz Markie record I had no idea where he got it from at the time because I was a post Purple rain Era Prince fan ( I started at D & P to be exact). But anyway while checking out the movie I was like this dude made that groove my heart raced. And then as I listened to the album thru the years "new Position" ; "anotherhole";"kiss";"I wonder"';"do u lie" and the one that gets me spiritually is " sometimes it snows" which is very powerful has pretty much made me feel this album to me is one his Greatest and doesn't feel like he was going for commercial success, which appeals to me even more.

You are definately bringing in the wrong energy to Eyejesters post, looks like it's u looking for any opportunity to turn a thread in2 a flaming battle.

Be civilizedDo not instigate, engage in, or encourage 'flame wars'. Don't post trolls/ads/spam/get-rich-quick schemes/other junk.Don't make posts that are inflammatory just to get people riled up.

No problem. This below is EyeJesters opening, that was one of my responses. Parade music & UTCM go hand in hand with so many outtakes mixed into the movie

What confuses you?

Life's A Parade!!! smile OR IS it a Charade 4 U?

IF So...climb the mountains and lie under the cherry moon! smile

I'm feeling pretty good, and this is due 2 the re-discovery of 'Under The Cherry Moon / Parade'

It really uplifted and inspired me in ways 2 make this video! I hope it does 4 u as well!

Last year it celebrated it's 25 year anniversary, and it's been 26 years now, BUT Life is still nice, and it's never 2 late 4 appreciation of this remarkable album! smile

Please share with me some of your favorite moments from this album? Also details I may have overlooked in the discussion of this album! Most likely U have many, & I am curious 2 hear them!

Thanks a lot in advance
