Nice...no unnecessarily thunderous voice introducing the song.

Well, at least we'll get it on CD rather than a radio rip.

Why, there was nothing wrong with it. I like it a lot smile

Also, is this promising progress towards a new album release?

Listening to it again I realise this song is actually VERY GOOD.

I notice a French sort of style/theme to it, perhaps he recorded this over in Switzerland this summer.

Like it, stylish.

99% of my posts are ironic. Maybe this post sides with the other 1%.

God hates me. Definitely, god hates me.

I can't complain because I started first, but god hates me.

Prince, please, have some decency and retire until you can come up with something listenable.

Funny, but it seems that Prince is putting out a bunch of "feeler" songs to see if We and I mean We like the songs. It's like he's unsure of the music he puts out now. Back in the day Prince was like "This is my shit, it's funky, and you know you love it!" Now it's "I hope and think this is a good song? I hope my fanbase(the org)likes this?" Just play music! No need to put in religious beliefs or worry about "four letter words". Play what's in your heart Prince. If you want to be nasty, be nasty. If it feels so good to you where a curse comes out, then that's how you feel. Just let it ride!

The fact that he had to resort to working with Purple Music again, clearly shows there aren't many doors left to knock on, right Mr. Bridgeburner?

to each their own. IMHO it just sounds so weak on the instrument side of things and just plain cheesey. Love the vocal, love the lyric but a potentially average /good tune has been made to sound like the life has been sucked out of it.

As for an album why do I get a horrible feeling that he has cobbled together a CD to sell alongside Andy Allos as a double pack. Hope I'm wrong.

I think it's quite hasty to deduct that P is using Purple Music out of lack of options, it may just be the wish for an exclusive european market (instead of a worldwide thing, he's done it before) and/or an independant label (as a statement that Prince is still an independent artist).

The paradox is that this song is so deeply rooted in an american music tradition that it's very unlikely that it's gonna appeal to european audiences as much as it could to american ones eek

hmmm, the When Doves Cry glasses, the ruffled shirt, the long regency style[amazing by the way] coat, the purple rain font. Evidence, my dear Dr.Watsons points to some revolution type activity perhaps? - 30 year anniverary in 2014 will be here before u know it.

Pity it's all preceeded with this song though!!!-sorry , just couldn't resist!

Well, I'm sure he doesn't have to scare record company executives away as if they were flies.

That's what happens when you feel you are above everybody and everything just because.

Of course, the fact that his latest music is pure crap must have a lot to do with his difficulties to find a decent outlet for it. He's just composing for newspapers giveaways.

Well, [Snip - luv4u]. God actually loves everyone, but there's just something about you that pisses him off. lol

All kidding around, I think this is a great track. Most pop radio friendly track in ages.

Why? Because he has an opinion that doesn't match yours?

I quite like this song, to be honest boxed

Sure, it's nothing ground breaking, and re-uses some classic Prince hooks (1999 synth, TMWU vibe), but I dunno... there's just something about it that I like. Plus it's actually the kind of song I can play with mates in the car and not have to worry about getting jibed for listening to "that skinny MF with the high voice" lol. OMG... Have I gotten to that age where I fit the 'Adult Contemporary' market? Why, I never!! lol

this drivel matches his golden girls stage pj's perfectly .. its even got the golden girls theme song in it .. i hear betty white is gonna make a guest appearance on the 12 inch extended mix .. its a vibrator esque dialog about who's fro is the roundest .. of course u all think betty is gonna win .. but they are comparing their other fro .. thats not laughter .. its crying played backwards ... afterwards betty gonna get purified in the waters of lake minnetanka .. estelle getty gonna play morris day in purple rain 3 and bea arthur is gonna play wendy .. all the girls at the old age home gonna be like .. ooh prince we love your new song .. then they will all sing along in their pajammas that look just like prince stage outfit .. they be singing "thank u for being a friend" .. prince be like what he did to mary j ... fuck it .. let the crowd sing .. my song got no hook anyway .. so if prince didn't exist before now .. and this was the first song he ever released .. would anyone really care .. no .. this song is an AWKWARD attempt to romanticize and AWKWARD relationship with the child that is ANDY ALLO .. its so insincere and hokey .. you can tell it is a relationship on mutual using of each other while pretending its about something spiritual or musical .. andy gets press .. prince gets laid and tries desperately to convince himself something deeper is going on .. please prince .. this is not rock n roll .. there is no "love" affair .. and with music like this there is certainly no road ahead
