Cooler than a polar bears toenails.
You used to ride on the chrome horse with your diplomat
Who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat
Ain't it hard when you discover that
He really wasn't where it's at
After he took from you everything he could steal.

Cool! I like it. I'm glad he changed the Purple Rain font.

I wish he'd release his new songs on iTunes here in the US. I'm all for physical CDs but also like to download songs so I can listen to them right away. Would love to hear the remixes!

I'm really glad he is sticking with physical formats. Now all I need is a new album...

Whatever happened to that good ol' tradition of having an extra song as a b-side? That's something I really miss.

I'd be more psyched if it had a proper b-side, but it's a step in the right direction to have a CD release with remixes.

Cool - i knew that Purple Rain font was some fans photoshop work.

Too bad it doesnt come with a real b-side but mixes are nice. However not a huge fan of this guy that also did the Dance4Me remixes...they're pretty dull

the best thing with the single release:

is the cover pic.

Like I have said before,

this song from Prince is c-r-a-p.

(I might buy the cd, but then for the collector's reasons only).

Let 2014 be purple heart

So the proper title is "Rock & Roll Love Affair", not the abbreviated form that had been circulating.

Cool!

indeed, a non album bside plus a 12" version of the a side would have been cool.

you know, like the singles he used to release and which we snapped up, eagerly cool

i'll probably pick up a copy though, since it will be available over here and it will

be nice to hold a physical prince release for the first time since 20Ten, i guess.

and true love lives on lollipops and crisps

The last b-sides I remember were crap (United States of Division for example). I'd prefer the official promo-video on that disc instead of a b-side.

Would have been a very good campaign song...... giggle

The chorus is just awkward. Imagine thousands of people chanting "duuududududuuduuu". confused

"Rock & Roll Love affair" est un aperçu du prochain album.
Présenté en exclusivité à diverses stations de radio américaines il y a quelques semaines lors de la tournée "Welcome 2 America", la chanson a immédiatement atteint la position 24 dans le Billboard ! Le passage du titre en Europe a immédiatement eu effet que le titre soit dans plusieurs tops de plusieurs pays de l'autre coté de l'Atlantique.
