SWEET!

But will he remember to mention his new website's name or won't bother at all? I predict the latter.

If he does mention it, man that site is gonna crash harder than Wall Street did 5 years ago.

At least Purple Music won't feel so burned after what P did.

Ahhhhh!!! I can't wait wink It's only February and 2013 has been so exciting already!! Thanks Prince ^_^

On a separate note...so Prince is quite fond of awards huh. I mean who isn't, really, but for some reason I personally never imagined Paisley Park, would be all decorated with awards&records...

So in May with the Billboards, he'll either perform a new single or something from his new album which will be announced by then.

You know what the best part is?

Until now, we didn't know he was performing. Will the Grammy ads change to mention this new development? Doubtful. In fact I'm sure P told them not to mention that he's performing at all.

In short, I think he might be expecting to do what he did on American Idol, a "surprise" appearance/performance.

So ready for what Prince is doing to do! The 'Anticipation' is like fire, because you really don't know what 2 eXpect! Could it be the Grammys? Youtube debut? I mean, we have no clue! He could for all we know bust a split while performing it! HAHAHA..jk

But, that guitar sound is sexy and wild! Loving it!!!

As with all of his live performances, it beats the heck out of the studio version! I'll even include the remix! he can be sure to impress!!

I like how the new website changed its domain name too! smile

Jaw dropping guitar work along with a stunned standing ovation crowd and the most talked about performance of the night is my prediction.

And on 2nd thoughts perhaps the teaser vid "only" means that the full video will b launched feb 10th. And that it's NOT a hint 2wards a Grammy per4mance, we'll see...

I don't think RRA was getting precious about anything like that. They just meant that DrF meant watch the "announcement" about Feb 10th Screwdriver live from 3rdEyeGirl on YouTube, rather than the "performance" itself on YouTube.

The Grammys is a fairly big event in the States no? Prince is also fairly big in the States no? Prince is appearing at the Grammys according to DrFB. Hmm, let me put my Sherlock head on for a minute...

... My God, I've got it!

So Prince will air his Grammys performance, or video, of Screwdriver (plus more?) on Prince2013.com live. Surely it can't be anything else?

Of course if it's details of a new album I'll be really pleased. If it's something more special (REMASTERS, BOX SET, SOMETHING!) I'll probably throw up and shit myself at the same time.

All right... I quitted following Prince some 7-8 years ago because I was quite obsessed with him and I had other things to do (children).

Now I came back... And all this new stuff coming...

Addicetd again doh!

And by the way, didn't he mention Amadeus the movie in an interview some time ago? Must really like it... Maybe he feels some similarity between himself and Mozart? His Purple Humbleness.. lol

SINGING PRESENTERS

Plans call for some Grammy presenters to break into song Sunday before they announce the next winner. Considering that the presenters include Prince, Bonnie Raitt, Beyoncé, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, among others, the presenters might just upstage some of the winners.

Upside: A cappella Prince? We're there!

Soo he's going to present at the Grammy's, make mention of his site to stir up interest & then rush off to a soundstage to perform the song? Maybe a feed from a grammy afterparty performance? Speculation runs rampant. I hope there's a show so I can drive my purple behind to LA for it.

Weird. Although the website name is not that big a deal, using the easiest possible name is always the logically intelligent idea, and Prince is the type to make it difficult. I am shocked you don't have to click the right spot on some Jellyfish nuts or something.

I'll record it - and wait to hear exactly where he appears in the show. lol

You wont even have to record it becasue it will be all over the facebook feeds constantly for 5 days by every friggin prince fan

You ain't nevah lied. lol

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

I updated the post ;p

Update 2/8/13: According to Dr FB:

We are reminding you that the one and funky PRINCE will be on the Grammys this Sunday. He is scheduled right now to present.

Also on Sunday, "Screwdriver" live will debut on 2013Prince.com, here, and EVERYWHERE!!!!

http://www.drfunkenberry....iver-live/

So I guess we get a video ;p

So we'll be getting the live version that some fans had been whining about not getting yet?

That's good news. Not as cool as the Grammys performance that will never be (and would've been opportune timing for him and his song) but alas....

Not necessarily. It could simply just mean that a video of "screwdriver" will go live on the February 10th.

Besides that, I find it quite amusing that after several yrs when Prince had no official site on the apparently dead internet, he now has THREE sites; www.3rdeyegirl.com www.20pr1nc3.com and www.prince2013.com Lol!

it says "Prince. Screwdriver. Live. February 10."

it doesn't specify. but it implies that you are going to be able to see him play Screwdriver as he plays it live somewhere. it doesn't specify that it's a "live-to-tape video," in which case it's not live. it's pre-recorded.

considering he's going to be at the Grammys on February 10, it's terribly confusing and potentially or intentionally misleading if he is not performing Screwdriver at the Grammys.

they would, except that every official (the Grammys) or semi-official (Dr. Funkenberry) outlet is saying that he's only presenting.

hence my prior comment about this video being potentially or intentionally misleading if he is not performing.

Because he needs a professional marketing/publicity team. Not just his band mates making announcements on their fb pages and such. Sure, that's cool for some of us, the continuous online Prince fans that use the org but the rest of the world...?

I think this is true to a point; he will need a professional team at some point. But I just watched this vid, and was kinda taken aback at the whole vibe; a 50-something yr old Prince banging out a hellafied riff and these young white musicians walking around Paisley Park like they were strolling through a grocery store. I think the article makes a good point; Prince has found some new spark of creativity, and I think he wants to slowly build on these singular moments, and when he feels there's enough curiosity out there, he'll just drop whatever he's going to drop. I haven't been this interested in what he's doing musically since TRC.

yeahthat Now both domain names work which is cool and requested. And the same goes 4 the 3rdeyegirl.com website being the simple page with download links...just as requested by many fans 4 a long time. And yet a select few think it's cool 2 bitch about the site not having any fancy graphics. I don't get that...I'm thrilled with the sites the way they r!

Oh please, that 3rdeyegirl website is hideous, amateurish and not user-friendly at all. And the URL is isiotic. The bar is so low and yet Prince still manages to stumble.

Weird. Although the website name is not that big a deal, using the easiest possible name is always the logically intelligent idea, and Prince is the type to make it difficult. I am shocked you don't have to click the right spot on some Jellyfish nuts or something.

Of course, if he had any brains he'd have a website with a simple to remember name that he could use over and over again year after year. But I guess it's "funkier" to promote three different URLs in a month, neither of them much good.

If that was the case he wouldn't be releasing songs that sound like they're reworkings of other songs he's done before. Even this whole "Screwdriver Live" video thing seems to be a retread of "The Undertaker" video.

I agree with this.

It's really damned near impossible for someone like Prince to just throw out strange, nonsensical URLs out for people to follow if his intention is to get the music out there to the general population.

lotusflow3r made absolutley no sense, (I'm not even going to get into the attrocious signup and navigation of that insanely idiotic FLASH site), because it was tied to an album's name and would be forgotten. I mean, had he registered purplerain.com, that might be a different thing, but lotusflow3r?

And the new ones are even worse. prince2013 is obviously temperary, and I suspect thirdeyegirl or whatever it is.

It's really just insane.

prince.org

prince.biz

prince.whatever would be easy to remember.

It boggles my mind that his ametuer fansites are all esier to find than his official ones

4Music (uk) are showing it tomorrow at 10pm. Their website or tv listing mentions nothing about Prince. Which shows how relevant he is to the current pop world. MJ or Madge would have topped the bill I imagine. But then I don't enjoy those two artists so I couldn't care less. Well maybe a bit of me wishes others recognised how cool he is. But it's nice to follow the alternative underdog.

You've hit the nail on the head djj, if people are not interested in the games, just don't participate. There is absolutely no reason to get up tight about something so trivial.

I've been laughing my ass off about this for the past day or two, y'all are unreal. Prince isn't performing at the Grammy's, I would've thought it was obvious that the video is simply recorded "live", and will go live today.

Besides, the Grammy website mentions absolutely nothing too:

With Music's Biggest Night quickly approaching, it's time to think about finalizing your to-do list for your official GRAMMY Sunday party. Snacks? Check. Favorite beverage? Check. Dessert? Check. Internet bill paid so you can stream GRAMMY Live? Check.

What's in store for GRAMMY Sunday, you ask? Plenty.

The star-studded performance lineup for the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards has a bit of everything — the music comeback of a six-time GRAMMY winner, first-time artist collaborations, a tribute to an American legend, GRAMMY debuts, and generous sides of country, rock, pop, and hip-hop. Plus, the GRAMMYs are guaranteed to be cool with two-time GRAMMY-winning artist/actor LL Cool J serving as host.

It's a lot to keep track of, so we've compiled a handy alphabetical guide to artists who will be taking the GRAMMY stage. Of course, be sure to stay logged on to GRAMMY.com and follow our liveblog to complement your GRAMMY experience and join the conversation.

And the performers for the 55th GRAMMY Awards are:

  • Travis Barker, Chuck D, LL Cool J, Tom Morello, and DJ Z-Trip

  • Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert

  • The Black Keys

  • Zac Brown, T Bone Burnett (as musical director), Alabama Shakes' Brittany Howard, Elton John, Mumford & Sons, and Mavis Staples, who will pay tribute to the late Levon Helm of the Band

  • Stanley Clarke, Chick Corea and Kenny Garrett in tribute to Dave Brubeck

  • Kelly Clarkson

  • Dr. John and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band with the Black Keys

  • Fun.

  • Elton John with Ed Sheeran, performing together live for the first time

  • Juanes

  • Alicia Keys and Maroon 5

  • The Lumineers

  • Bruno Mars, Rihanna, and Sting

  • Miguel and Wiz Khalifa

  • Mumford & Sons

  • Frank Ocean

  • Rihanna

  • Taylor Swift

  • Justin Timberlake

  • Carrie Underwood

  • Jack White

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards will take place live on Sunday, Feb. 10 at Staples Center in Los Angeles and will be broadcast in high-definition TV and 5.1 surround sound on the CBS Television Network from 8–11:30 p.m. (ET/PT). The show also will be supported on radio worldwide via Dial Global, and covered online at GRAMMY.com and CBS.com, and on YouTube.

The Grammys don't start until 9 pm EST - which is four hours off.

The red carpet starts in 15 minutes. He didn't say it'd be up before that.
I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

I just heard that Prince and Skrillex are doing a duet together, part of the Grammy's 3 year plan of pairing old and new artists (boy that never gets old does it?)

That ought to be better than the standard Travis Barker playing drums to some old rappers trying to be cool.

I think it is odd we find ourselves w/ one of the most influential entertainers/musicians/composers looking for approval in a video w/ a dance routine to entice the young viewers. I guess we will see the reaction soon enough. I still haven't heard the remix yet. eek

But they actually started 15 minutes ago. Which he knows - because he's there.
I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

That's why we get the crappy PR and misinformation, we are aware.

Yes, but to assume that whatever The Doc says is true is unfair to the Doc (Frankenberry). Count Chocula says that P will change up at any moment. Doncha' all like surprises?

Prince did an interview with a woman at Record World. They talked about whatever, then he asked her: "Does your pubic hair go up to your navel?" At that moment, we thought maybe we shouldn't encourage him to do interviews.

Record of the year.
Prince did an interview with a woman at Record World. They talked about whatever, then he asked her: "Does your pubic hair go up to your navel?" At that moment, we thought maybe we shouldn't encourage him to do interviews.

Damn it it is NOT! I just paid my 1.77 and watched it. Its the live version that was only shown for a few seconds when the whole thing was revealed to us. It has a new section showing those 'youngsters' basically doing the twist. Its an exteneded live version and it rocks pretty musch but its just a basic b&w video. Stop acting like yiou're orgasming over this basic shit.

Exactly. It's a nice performance of the song, but the video itself is pretty run of the mill once it gets going. That intro skit is AWFUL though, and I really hate how cheap digital makes everything look.

Bought and watched it the video - not horrible - not great...could definitely lose the little male versus female band rivalry vignette at the beginning. Some nice guitar work in the video and he gives the girls a chance to shine on a few solos. Also of course the crowd flash dancing or whatever is marginal at best smile

Overall - kind of the quality of video you saw during the Gold Experience/Undertaker days...

You don't have to BUY the video folks. Prince aint putting a gun to your head and pay the $1.77.

(or knowing his size, his gun to your crotch.)

Again, lets encourage him to keep putting up videos. Hopefully they'll be better, but hey its more of his "home made" videos, for better or worse.

Prince should have done this on the show tonight and showed them how it's (still) done!

In any case, leave it up to Prince to release his new video at the exact moment

I'm not complaining. All the stuff was only like 5 bucks. I think of all the ways I waste 5 bucks everyday, this was definitely not one of them. People complaining about the quality (mp3, wav, FLAC, etc) should keep it in perspective. .88 cents? Who cares what the format is for .88 cents. Just my thoughts.

It's not a bad track. Probably one of his better efforts of the past 5 years. I'd like to see it "live". I mean in person live. If he gets kids to do the twist, I'll be really shocked. I got a bit bored for them, just watching.


But, hey he's making a real effort to reach a new generation. This is certainly interesting to see and was starting to believe I'd never see Prince really trying to be "current" ever again.

I'd still rather see him team up with DJ Poet or hell even Peter Fox (look up Seeed)!

Looks like it was shot with the surveillance cams at Paisley Park. Dimly lit, black and white, stationary cam shots. Don't know why the casting call for dancers called for 18-21 only... not like you could see anyone.

Corny opening skit/set up for the 3rd Eye Girl/band concept.

Very much in the vein of "The Second Coming" type thing Prince did back in the day.

Overall, this vid is meh. Can't believe Prince spent more money producing a vid for RNR Love Affair a song I consider subpar to Screwdriver. Bring back Sanaa Hamri who directed the Musicology vids.

I think someone on the org mentioned the 3rdeyeboys are the 3rdeyegirls real life Husbands or boyfriends... Hannah is married to the african american guy and the blond guy with long hair is Donna's BF...

As for the video, yeah, it's a little cheesy--but I still like it. It has that garage band/kids playing with a videocamera vibe to it. Plus, it's a nice little version of the song.

But a Prince web project with PROMPT and HELPFUL support? eek Now THAT'S reason to be excited! biggrin

It's always been about the music! Sure we can complain about the stor line, and why doesn't Prince just perform? BUT HEY! HE DID...AND HE TORE IT UP!

The story just brings some suspense, and there is arm stretches to bring the people to the stage, and he rocks it out!

Very easy process to get the video from the site, and I think it rocked TOTALLY! Just seeing his shread that guitar, and letting Donna shread as well! That was just remarkable!!!!

I also, loved the fact that he was So cool on the Grammy's! Prince, is up for a return to the POPULAR SCENE!

No complaints for me, JUST pure excitement! HE gave ALL what we was hopping for, and SOME!

Sure, we can go here and go there..but if there is one place Prince goes here is ROCK!

I LOVE it!

I saw the same old same old at 20pr1nc3.com, went to 3rd Eye Girl, bought it, didn't get the email, but noticed the link on the order recieved page, made the mistake of clicking download, went back and right click/saved it, took nearly 10 minutes to download, watched...

The intro was corny, the dancing was silly, but the performance rocked! Worth the measley $1.77...

Laughing my ass of at those that are pissed it isn't free. I thought the consensus among us was we weren't interested in a membership site where we didn't know what we were getting, and prefered a site where we could buy, or not buy what we want at reasonable prices. That's what we have here. The freebies so far have been great promotion, but, we had to know there'd be stuff for sale, right?

i think the single version should be more like this version....... that would be my only improvement..


LOVE IT PRINCE!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU for doing it all right this time.. .internet, good video.. lots of guitar.. THANK YOU!

Damn it it is NOT! I just paid my 1.77 and watched it. Its the live version that was only shown for a few seconds when the whole thing was revealed to us. It has a new section showing those 'youngsters' basically doing the twist. Its an exteneded live version and it rocks pretty musch but its just a basic b&w video. Stop acting like yiou're orgasming over this basic shit.

Ok, the performance footage is cool. No frills but still cool. Why oh why was a dance crew called in? So pointless and awkward.

I had the same problem trying to download, because when I right-clicked, I didn't get the 'Save target as', so I had to open the link in a new browser.

. Once purchased, it tells you to go to 'Save Target As', but if you don't get that msg, when you right click, then t tells you to copy the link in a different browser, and save it there. I opened Google Chrome, and copied tthe link to that browser, then highlighted the link, went to 'File' and chose, 'Save As' and it saved in my documents file. Then I right-clicked the file to open, and it opened in Windows Media player, and started downloading. Only takes just a few minutes to download, and then the video plays.

Corny opening skit/set up for the 3rd Eye Girl/band concept.


 


Very much in the vein of "The Second Coming" type thing Prince did back in the day.


 


Overall, this vid is meh. Can't believe Prince spent more money producing a vid for RNR Love Affair a song I consider subpar to Screwdriver. Bring back Sanaa Hamri who directed the Musicology vids.



Idk, screwdriver is kinda garage rock, so I'm not sure if a big production would work, gorilla style works. I prefer the first free version vid overall, new one its alright. its a damn good song that matters. Would like a flac of the live version w/o intro.

I'm sure someone will stick it up for free somewhere by the time we wake up in the morning and those that are adverse to paying can still get their fix. For $1.77, I don't mind supporting this venture... I got my $$ worth!

Are people really complaining about spending $1.77?

After years of no official releases of anything and no web presencse since 2009, Prince is releasing music again. We've seen in the past that Prince will lose interest in releasing material through his web sites if it's not bringing in money. I have no problem spending $1.77 for this and 88 cents for the songs. Even if I hit a song or video here or there that I don't like, it's an investment in more releases.

The Montruex video has been promised. As one who hasn't seen that yet, I'm looking forward to that release. And I'd love to see stuff like the unreleased 3121 movie (along with everything else in the vault).

I downloaded, but had to get the link from 3rdeyegirl website. Some nice friends on facebook gave me a hand. I just clicked the link I found and my laptop did the rest. It gets played on Windows Media by default since I don't have something else set up. I've got four downloads left...

My opinion. I like the song because it's different, but I'm far from lovin' it. Don't really see the need for dancers at the moment, they could've just played the song as far as I'm concerned. I will say that Prince's ventures tend to grow on me sometimes, so I'll see how I feel in the next several weeks. Btw, anyone else notice any distortion coming from the video (left speaker)? Maybe I've simply blown my left speaker, but thought I'd ask. Good night everyone...love you all. hug

Hilarious Twitter comments about Prince at the grammys:

  1. ": Prince is the ONLY man who can wear heels, a perm & eyeliner better than yo girl & leave the party with your girl" truth

    1. : Wow! Prince wears black to the Grammy's and wears purple. Lookin damn good though bro” It's Maroon man!

      1. Truly does not age. Metal chest plates have something to do with it? Cryogenic tank? Looks the same as 25 years ago

        1. Prince is that dude that would really send u to jail for downloading his music illegally, and would watch u while eating grapes, as u go in.

      1. You have to feel sorry for Prince. It’s pretty clear by now the Queen is never going to abdicate.

        1. Who else but can wear a hood, sunglasses, fake cane, say 9 words and practically win an award for presenting?

      1. According to tradition, now that we've seen Prince it means another six weeks of winter.

Some nice guitar work in the video and he gives the girls a chance to shine on a few solos. Also of course the crowd flash dancing or whatever is marginal at best smile

Overall - kind of the quality of video you saw during the Gold Experience/Undertaker days...

The music compensates for an otherwise cheaply produced, corny video. In other words, one big yawn.

Are people really complaining about spending $1.77?

After years of no official releases of anything and no web presencse since 2009, Prince is releasing music again. We've seen in the past that Prince will lose interest in releasing material through his web sites if it's not bringing in money. I have no problem spending $1.77 for this and 88 cents for the songs. Even if I hit a song or video here or there that I don't like, it's an investment in more releases.

The Montruex video has been promised. As one who hasn't seen that yet, I'm looking forward to that release. And I'd love to see stuff like the unreleased 3121 movie (along with everything else in the vault).

I agree with you 100% on the investment. I've seen a clip of "All the critics love u in NY" played at Montruex festival--we are in for a treat.

What's the deal w/ Prince? Does he have some kind of archiving laziness for unreleased music? He gives us "ScrewDriver" & meanwhile he is sitting on unreleased treasures. lol

"I'm your driver you're my screw" Really? this passes for lyrical metaphor? I wonder what Larry thinks of that. Maybe he's the screw in that relationship. lol

you know... sometimes a rock'n'roll song doesn't have to make you understand the complexities of the universe... you don't always have to feel close to gandhi if you drop acid and recite the lyrics

somewhere right now an overweight white dude is chugging a beer in his undies... he's dancing around in a provocative manner with his very hairy belly jiggling as he seductively thrusts towards his wife (well sort of wife) (who has also had many beers.. and maybe a little meth) and he's yelling "I"M YOUR DRIVER YOU"RE MY SCREW!"

LOVE the video!! Now I have to figure out how to get the audio separated so I can burn it on cd for my car. For those complaining about paying for it give it a break. If you don't like what Prince is doing just go away and don't buy it. I mean DAMN!! I for one am glad Prince is finally doing things online and I don't mind paying him. Why are so many people here always negative? Are you sure you even like Prince? It makes others turn against this site. I HOPE Prince gets his site fully up and the place to go so I don't have to come here anymore for news and read all of the complaining anymore. Keep it up Prince, I love it!! and put up a news forum with everything going on(with no reply board)

Hey trax..you can buy the mp4 of the video to dl so you dont have to find a way to seperate it to burn to cd

same price ...1.77

an mp4 is still a video.

Same movie, different way of encoding teh content.

MOV is mainly intended for the Apple platforms but modern platforms should be able to play both. So there is no real reason to provide two file formats.

I heard it live at the Dakota late Friday night show. It sounded awesome but no one had heard it before so there wasn't a lot of extra excitement in the crowd when he played it. It really rocked live.

MarcelJ said:

It's not a bad track. Probably one of his better efforts of the past 5 years. I'd like to see it "live". I mean in person live. If he gets kids to do the twist, I'll be really shocked. I got a bit bored for them, just watching.


But, hey he's making a real effort to reach a new generation. This is certainly interesting to see and was starting to believe I'd never see Prince really trying to be "current" ever again.

I'd still rather see him team up with DJ Poet or hell even Peter Fox (look up Seeed)!

Well, I'm glad I didn't pay for the video, but I think it's a fair price for a video. shrug

Madonna's "Justify My Love" cost more than that in the 80/90s, so I don't see the asking price here as insane. It was just that I didn't care for the video. I like the low budge feel, but I dislike cameras that are still-shot for scenes like the ones in the video--it makes it look not only low budget, but amateurish.

I do like the fact that this is now yet ANOTHER version of ScrewDriver--he chose to record the video live and not just lip sync it.

Overall, this is really how he should be selling his material--just make the website easier to understand with standard menus, etc.

Seems if you access to purchase via prince2013.com it only offers mp4.

Accessing via 3rdeyegirl.com gives a choice between .mov or .mp4 formats.

Prince is a musician not a lifestyle.

Complaining about people making negative comments is sometimes more negative than the complaining. I am a member of other artists websites who treat their fans like gold, and there are hardly any complaints.

Prince has ripped off his fans over and over, and charged some poor people $77 for the Lotus Flow3r website TWO WEEKS before it CLOSED FOREVER WITHOUT REFUND!!!!

Then he puts 77 tracks on 20Ten to MAKE FUN OF THE PEOPLE WHO lost their $77!!!!!

I love Prince, but will clown on him for Crapping on his fans, and clown on him for whatever I feel like.

I also will COMPLIMENT him for nice songs like Rock N' Roll Love Affair, even when half of this website hates it.!!!!

Oh come off of it! There's no way you could be THAT excited over something as simple as this "live" video. You're acting like a 12 year old would to hearing a Justin Bieber ringtone out of the blue.

On another note Prince Looked Superfly at the Grammys, I'm loving the jacket and hair with the hood, the overall look just worked perfecto! cool

Yes, he looked great, as always. The man just doesn't age, and is as handsome as ever, not to mention, too cool for words! wink

It's called MAKE-UP. Just like Oprah doesn't look too bad/old when done all up, but once you see her outside of all that caked on crap, she looks every bit her age.

hmm.. I liked the intro. Hannah is damn hot, but Mr Blackwell could out-play her with one hand. For those who compain about paying $1.77. Come on now... That's a cup of coffee at Circle K.

I'm really hoping he posts Montreux videos soon.

Maybe so, but at least the coffee will last longer and is probably more satisfying.

Well, I see 'live' footage that wa partly known and/or looks very much alike what we already saw.

Mixed in there is footage of people of undiscernable age that do certain movements.

So: is the footage of the musicians indeed the old stuff or does it simply look like the old stuff?

The attempt at acting makes Graffiti Bridge seem like Citizen Kane; stick to the music, man....damn. And the "dancing" looks absolutely idiotic.

The music - the most important thing - is on point, and I easily prefer this to the versions that have floated around as of late. I wasn't going to buy this at first, but it's not bad for less than 2 euros. One less beer for me at happy hour, I suppose. But if there's another "remix" of Screwdriver, I'll rely on others to share it with. I'm only paying once per song title.

Does anyone know of a free program that I can use to edit out the "extra" (non-music) parts? I know how to convert the mp4 to an mp3 but I'm clueless when it comes to "editing" that mp3 down.

I get much want an mp3 of the live version of this song, but I'm not at all interested in a video, so I'm waiting to buy it until I know I can make it into something I will listen to.

for those who have seen it...

is it a different audio recording than what was in the original and remix versions?

also, are there any crowd noises on top of it? or sound effects? or dialogue.

would be willing to buy it, but only to convert it into an audio file. but I'm not going to bother if it's the same as either of the other versions, or it's ruined with overdubbing of annoying extraneous sounds/people.

That's fair enough. I paid it becuse it's a different version of a song I like, no doubt he'll release an mp3 of it later and squeeze me for more. smile

One good thing about the pricing is that it's much cheaper than a music video on iTunes.

I love that it's a live rocking version of the song, its raw, playful and completeky kick ass! And I think the video compliments it as well. The dancing portion didn't bother me at all. In fact I like it and thought that it added to the playfulness of the experience.

Okay first off the download experience was once again flawless. P finally made it easy like it should be.

Seconds now that I've seen the video I'm even more pissed off that he did not play this LIVE at the Grammys

Think this version is cool? Playing it live last night would've been short of AMAZING!

tsk tsk what a pity

life can be so shitty

And seriously P you should fire this director who shot this video of these clowns dancing! horribly I might add...30 takes?? really? really...

However the performance is excellent and really the best version of the song.

I love when he sings...

And now without further ado

Ladies and gentlemen

Donna for U!

Man this would have been so good last night. That wasted opportunity is to going to bother me for a while.

Finally, I have already edited my video with just the music, no stupid stupid dancing and just great shots of the band and the...

Intro solo is now an outro!!!! Just like it should have been last night.

Okay first off the download experience was once again flawless. P finally made it easy like it should be.

Seconds now that I've seen the video I'm even more pissed off that he did not play this LIVE at the Grammys

Think this version is cool? Playing it live last night would've been short of AMAZING!

tsk tsk what a pity

life can be so shitty

And seriously P you should fire this director who shot this video of these clowns dancing! horribly I might add...30 takes?? really? really...

However the performance is excellent and really the best version of the song.

I love when he sings...

And now without further ado

Ladies and gentlemen

Donna for U!

Man this would have been so good last night. That wasted opportunity is to going to bother me for a while.

Finally, I have already edited my video with just the music, no stupid stupid dancing and just great shots of the band and the...

Intro solo is now an outro!!!! Just like it should have been last night.

You probably had this thought in mind, Prince likely directed this video. lol I don't think he wants to give Grammy's any more free labor for his performances. falloff

Do you fucking even know what hyperbole means?

Man fuck some of yall for 'trying' to turn me into Bart.

So RD to sum it up. The actual music tracks are fine. But pass on the video? I just don't want to waste my time. smile

Bart isn't paying a bit of attention. He has a personal vendetta against Prince and carries it out on this website because he knows Prince/his people read this site.

Prince could record a song that has the secret to curing cancer and Bart would screech about it being "the same old stuff".

I wish he would go away. It'd be one thing if his criticism was constructive, but you know as well as I do that all he's doing is carrying on a personal grudge with Prince.

I saw the same old same old at 20pr1nc3.com, went to 3rd Eye Girl, bought it, didn't get the email, but noticed the link on the order recieved page, made the mistake of clicking download, went back and right click/saved it, took nearly 10 minutes to download, watched...

The intro was corny, the dancing was silly, but the performance rocked! Worth the measley $1.77...

Laughing my ass of at those that are pissed it isn't free. I thought the consensus among us was we weren't interested in a membership site where we didn't know what we were getting, and prefered a site where we could buy, or not buy what we want at reasonable prices. That's what we have here. The freebies so far have been great promotion, but, we had to know there'd be stuff for sale, right?

wink

And now, repeat on that video... guitar headbang

Absolutely right, too many people have the idea it's their god-given right that you don't pay for music. We all get paid for the work that we do(of course we should all get paid more..), and just like you and I wouldn't bother fronting up if there were no dollars, either will these sites.

These sites are beta version to test whether people will put their money where their mouth is and ultimately whether the model will be sustainable.

In a positive development there's even a choice of formats, which will hopefully get extended to the audio product too.

It was rather amusing that some people spent all day on the 10th moaning about when is it going to drop, but when it came to parting with their money realised they didn't really want it that bad.

Not that I'm advocating that people should blindly buy everything put up for sale on the sites.

You dont like what's available this time, move on, maybe next time there will be something that you would like to buy.

Personally I've bought the single because I like the song, and this live video because I want me some raw guitars. guitar

Prince delivered on time with product, price and no cowbells. thumbs up!

I didn't buy the other 3 products because I found them unsuitable.

... and for those trying to shutdown discussion. This site being a forum, it's ineveitable that you may come across opinions where you disagree, "toughen up princesses!"

Prince is a musician not a lifestyle.

I thought that performance of the song itself was stellar. However, I had to wince at the "dancers" doing the twist. Not at all visually appealing. It would have been good it it had just been the intro and the performance. Speaking of the intro, WTF. The girls, I expected bad acting. But wwhy does prince pick guys who look like they think they're cool, happening, whatever, and come off the exact opposite? The brotha doing the talking was wayyyy too much.

Criticism is sometimes justified but Bart criticises everything single thing. If there is no joy to be found in anything Prince does, there's really no reason to be posting here.

And what he writes isn't true. At best it's his opinion but mostly it's just hate for the sake of it.

If Prince released a flawlessly remastered box sets with bonus outtake discs, it would still be shit because someone else did it before.

Well, I'm glad I didn't pay for the video, but I think it's a fair price for a video. shrug

Madonna's "Justify My Love" cost more than that in the 80/90s, so I don't see the asking price here as insane. It was just that I didn't care for the video. I like the low budge feel, but I dislike cameras that are still-shot for scenes like the ones in the video--it makes it look not only low budget, but amateurish.

I do like the fact that this is now yet ANOTHER version of ScrewDriver--he chose to record the video live and not just lip sync it.

Overall, this is really how he should be selling his material--just make the website easier to understand with standard menus, etc.

The Sexy M.F. VHS that had only the 1 long-form video cost about $10 if I remember correctly. Of course, IN MY OPININION, it was worth more than this simply because it was a physical product that could be collected and/or resold as opposed to a digital file that "disappears in a day"...

Anyway, point being, the price is fair.

i don't know why anyone who's been a prince fan for over a decade would

be surprised or disappointed by this video.

come on, the second that trailer went live you could tell it was another one

of those typical paisley park productions.

i guess i was just happy that this time 'round no pretty girls were making

desparate phonecalls and throwing up on the carpet or beautiful women

going mad rocking back n forth with their hands on their heads screaming

at their computer screens smile

but, like most other shoddily acted PP productions, the music at least rocks

along nicely. great version of the song indeed.

however, the intro and the ending of the video has left me trembling and

sweating in fear he's gonna film "grafitty bridge part 2"

please not another band rivalry flick lol

instead of that skit, i would have loved if he'd just put up the whole of the

rehearsal (including bambi and god knows what else). he wouldn't have

had to get in those people to dance either, just roll tape on prince and the

girls. that would have made for a cool little film to own.

only slight criticism i have toward the actual song is that it's a shame we

can only get the video and it doesn't come with an audio file of the song.

that would have made it a lot better, to just have this live performance as

an mp3 as well. but i guess we can remedy that by just converting.

The performance is alright, but even that isn't really enough for me to bother paying to download it and convert it to audio.

Everything else about it is straight up embarrassing. More than usual, for Prince videos even.

I see the age limit they put on the open call for dancers/extras really hindered them. The dancing scenes really ought to have more than 15 people on a big soundstage doing this dance. And I didn't really understand the point of the intro.

I don't get the age restriction, at all. I mean...it's not like you could actually see what the people looked like.

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

it does seem like only a very small crowd showed up and i think

at least 2 of them are professional dancers that were probably

hired.

i didn't really understand why they put those shots in at all,

because it just looked like what it looked like: only a few people,

doing a silly dance on a huge sound stage.

would have been better even to have only the girl who dances

in the screwdriver lyrics video dance in the middle of the stage

in a spotlight.

now it looks like 'oh wow, 14 people showed up at paisley park

for the videoshoot and at leat 4 of them look like they just came

hoping for a free lunch and a packet of marlboro's'.

Okay, I just saw it, and I'm glad I didn't give up my personal information to buy it.

Buying a video isn't something I would do anyway. I would buy a DVD (or Blu-Ray) of a collection of videos or a live concert.

The only part I liked was Prince's hand gesture (where he beckoned the band to follow him to the soundstage).

What Prince should do is release the lyric video and promote it heavily, followed by a new album.

If Prince stays with all digital downloads from this point on, I'll be saving some money in the long run.

I believe Prince has found some new inspiriation with his current band. I would bet the girls are driving a lot of his actions recently, ie. embracing the web, the new sound, etc.

It's not a bad track. Probably one of his better efforts of the past 5 years. I'd like to see it "live". I mean in person live. If he gets kids to do the twist, I'll be really shocked. I got a bit bored for them, just watching.


But, hey he's making a real effort to reach a new generation. This is certainly interesting to see and was starting to believe I'd never see Prince really trying to be "current" ever again.

I'd still rather see him team up with DJ Poet or hell even Peter Fox (look up Seeed)!

To be fair to them, they're doing their absolute best - which is a hell of a lot more than can be said for previous websites Prince has sprung forth.

I sent them a quick email this morning telling them that the general concensus online on fan forums etc seems to be definitely weighed in the positive. Why? Well mainly because I was in a good mood and wanted to throw something positive back in to someones mix today and God knows people are quick to fire off emails when things go wrong, but rarely bother to take the time and say something constructive and make someones day.

I recieved this reply a couple of hours later:

I sent them a quick email this morning telling them that the general concensus online on fan forums etc seems to be definitely weighed in the positive. Why? Well mainly because I was in a good mood and wanted to throw something positive back in to someones mix today and God knows people are quick to fire off emails when things go wrong, but rarely bother to take the time and say something constructive and make someones day.

I recieved this reply a couple of hours later:

Thank U so much for taking the time to share your positive comments!
This means a lot to us as we are working very hard to provide a positive and smooth experience for all of us Prince fans (of which this whole web team counts themselves!).
Look for much more in the coming future!

Give them a chance, from what I can see - they're doing their damndest to be a lot more hands on and reachable than what we've had before.

So far, so good I say.

That was very nice of them & U 2 show thx. They r definitely trying to make this new xperience work 4 all "real" Prince fans. The ones that care... U should print that out & frame it. giggle

It shows that Prince cares 2. He has a backing that has his back like no other this time. This year is turning in2 a very purple year so far....

While I am not yet wowed by the content, I am thrilled that Prince is finding a way to market new material to his audience.

We've had no proper album since...2008?! Is that possible?

2010 in Europe, 2009 in the U.S.

Yes, and I have 2010, but I can't really count it being the provincial American that I am!

Even two years is a long break for prince though

Right, just like you saw Gett Off, SexyMF, 3 Chains O'Gold, Sacrifice of Victor, and Undertaler videos before buying them.

Its becomming to difficult to get his music, I refuse 2 pay 4 a freaking video or u kidding me. then download a song or two every other day. WEAK PRINCE WEAK. can u say record store.

Videos are not supposed to be free if you want to own them. They sell videos on iTunes and I would imagine on other download services.

No, that's actually the beauty, no membership therefore you don't have to pay for anything that you don't want. There's always the lyric video.

I didn't buy the video and honestly I don't care about seeing it. I didn't even visit the website. After he didn't perform on the Grammys, I was done (although I LOVED seeing him there with his hood and all cool )

It was a big let down to find it was going to be on a site for pay-per-download as opposed to being broadcast. It's not "LIVE" to me unless I watch it while it's going on. But ok, semantics.

The way the pitch was done just made the whole anticlimatic.

Now, had he let it be a surprise, it would have been different. I know Frank Ocean did SNL and then immediately uploaded a video for fans right after and it created a tone of excitement and got a lot of press and Twitter action. Ocean has done stuff like that several times and it's well coordinated.

This just felt like a trick. Saying "watch live" is different from a video shot live. And then he doesn't even just release it to the world on YouTube. I've never paid for a video and I don't intend to.

A song? Yes, a real feature-length film, yes?

Videos should be part of advertising to get people interested in buying the music or following an artist's career. A pay-per-view video doesn't even have the power to go viral. So, once again, Prince is limiting his scope. This is just all kinds of wrong from a marketing standpoint.

Another good version of Screwdriver. Too bad that the intro with the dialogue is silly and badly acted, it drags down the overall impression.

I thought that performance of the song itself was stellar. However, I had to wince at the "dancers" doing the twist. Not at all visually appealing. It would have been good it it had just been the intro and the performance. Speaking of the intro, WTF. The girls, I expected bad acting. But wwhy does prince pick guys who look like they think they're cool, happening, whatever, and come off the exact opposite? The brotha doing the talking was wayyyy too much.

The guy with the speaking part is Hannah's husband/boyfriend/partner. Not sure about the others.

But yes that intro was corny as hell.

You pay. You wait for the email and click the link, OR, you go the My Account page and Right Click/Save on the download button and a few minutes later you have the file. Pretty simple.

Those that have had issues with this have gotten assistance from emailing the site, checking the FAQ or asking here. This really couldn't be easier...

I liked this video, but then again I'm more open to Prince's home-made videos which do give off an amateur charm that the glossy multi-million dollar videos can never produce. And I mean "amateur," but its a goofy vibe that I appreciate.

I don't understand the "plot" of the intro. Are the boys refusing to let the girls play? And why? Made no sense to me but who cares? And yes, I loved that hand gesture. Hilarious.

As is the dance choreography, ranging from semi-coherent to the beloved "drunk" dance. And the ending....what, did Mr. Nelson abduct more girls to join his harem? Are the boys doomed to face the Time's fate?

I liked this new (3rd version?) Screwdriver, more raw and you know what? I'm surprised nobody has mentioned that flub Prince does at one point when he almost giggles and lose his composure. I loved that humanistic touch.

In short, $1.77 is a good price for this.

But for those losers who want to DL this for "free" at YT, have at it.

I'm sure it was entirely shot by the 3rdboys on their iPhones, then edited in iMovie right there and then.

At first, the Screwdriver involved a lot of spinning and counterspinning, but most fans couldn't spin due to their sneakers so Prince taught them the twist.

If that was a film, then RnR Love Affair should sweep on Oscar night.

Also, let me slap people who keep whining about not getting to see the video before buying it.

Umm I'm sorry kids, you know CDs? LPs? Albums? There was a time when you bought one of them and save for the singles that played on your local radio...you most likely didn't hear the other album cuts before you bought the album.

Again, don't want it? Don't buy it. Unfortunately quite afew Orgers I guarantee are downloading that YT clip as we speak while whining about the production value.

You don't have to BUY the video folks. Prince aint putting a gun to your head and pay the $1.77.

Again, lets encourage him to keep putting up videos. Hopefully they'll be better, but hey its more of his "home made" videos, for better or worse.

The best thing about the internet, is that people like you can pretend to be positive and happy about everything, but you take the first opportunity to COMPLAIN ABOUT THE COMPLAINERS....that really makes you worse than the complainers to begin with.

My review: The first 2:30 of the video is useless and almost unwatchable. Prince, was this supposed to be funny? You could get Tony M on the cheap to rap about Manure or make another Mr Money Minder Speech....it would be just as lame...

The dancers: Like somebody on this thread said, it pretty much looks like a bunch of young losers trying to get gum off their shoes.

The song: I am usually the first one to talk about how much I love Prince's studio work. I am in the minority who thinks RNR Affair is the better song. I do like this live version better than the studio one, however. It's not a bad song, it's just not the end all to me that some here are making it to be. I thought most of Chaos And Disorder, Fury, Guitar, and most of Lotus Flow3r(rock album not MPLSound) are TONS better than Screwdriver, but in the end, it's still nice to have a new Prince song, and the all-girl band ain't bad. And I'm usually the first here to talk about how bad his bands have been recently.

And no your complaint about my complaint isn't confusing -- It's just silly.

Anyway I downloaded the video (in MOV) and....no problem. None, zero.

This is not a complaint, but rather a sincere question:

Is the sound really bad for everyone else, or did my copy somehow get distorted during download?

I'm playing it through my sound bar on my TV and maaaaaaan, I want to be able to crank this song, but it sounds like I'm playing it through my iPhone speakers: just really tinny, and like my speakers are busted (when in fact they work just fine).

Videos should be part of advertising to get people interested in buying the music or following an artist's career. A pay-per-view video doesn't even have the power to go viral. So, once again, Prince is limiting his scope. This is just all kinds of wrong from a marketing standpoint.

Yes I don't get it why he didn't perform on the Grammys, it would have been a great opportunity 2 promote the Screwdriver single. And when read watch Screwdriver Live 10/2/2013 then I thought he would perform it live at first

Well, maybe prince is the moneyminder that some critical fans accuse him to be.

He wants to be paid for his work. That's why he doesn't give us a live version for free.

Maybe he thinks that a live performance at the Grammy Awards would've damaged his sales of the live version he wants us to buy.

As it's been said, I'd rather buy a live dvd instead of some weird little video. I'd like to see it first before I buy it

Even for $1.77 in a currency that has depreciated dramatically in recent years.

Even when the goods are from an artist that you should be familiar with.

Even when you had a preview or two.

Just saw it, and it's not as bad as I expected lol

Even if I couldn't help but think, "He's in a teenage mood again!" razz

The dancing thing could look better if there were mooooore people... But they were just a few....

Prince, I don't agree but accept the fact that you don't want to stay around old people. It's a legit choice, I guess.

rolleyes But if you're gonna make "old" start at 22... That's what you get...

This is not a complaint, but rather a sincere question:

Is the sound really bad for everyone else, or did my copy somehow get distorted during download?

I'm playing it through my sound bar on my TV and maaaaaaan, I want to be able to crank this song, but it sounds like I'm playing it through my iPhone speakers: just really tinny, and like my speakers are busted (when in fact they work just fine).

Here's your answer, thanks udo for the analysis

This made me laugh. Prince? Marketing? This is a guy who has painfully tried to do whatever is possible to make as little money as possible. The greatest Pop musician in history by far...but he fumbles and bumbles his way to avoid making money. He's so great and talented, that he's going to make money anyway, but naive and neurotic enough to have even been on the brink of serious financial trouble before his awesome Musicology Tour saved his ass.

I've said it a billion times: U2 is my second favorite artist, but don't have 5% of Prince's talent. Their 360 tour didn't make over $700 million due to them being dominant musicans. Yes, they are great, but they go out of their way to have a great fan club, and passionately thank their fans, and provide Live Cds for their fanclub that you can't buy in stores. They don't sue their own fans, and they don't screw their own fans.

No matter how frustrating it is to be a Prince fan, I absolutely love him, and love him like a brother. I would not let my brother get away with bullshit, so I clown on Prince for the bullshit like Tony M, and wasting Shelby J's talent as a crowd flunky.

I praise Prince when I think he deserves it, like 2002's ONA tour, I praised him for 3121, Lotus Flow3r, Planet Earth, most of 20Ten, and yes, I dig RNR Love Affair.

I clown him for the ridiculous intro to the Screwdriver Video, and I have clowned on Prince and Warners for having no idea how to market somebody so brilliant.

Ok I've seen it.

Um so...the whole intro was dorky and when Prince came in thru the door, all I could think of was Fred Armisen from SNL on that Beyonce/Baby blue skit. I burst into laughter. I'm hoping Prince was just trying to make fun of himself.

The dancers - superflous. The band performance was really good but ok I've seen it now.

What I'm intrigued about is where he is taking this girl rock band idea. Also, the other dudes in the video? They are musicians as well. What's happening with them?

Man crybabies already polluting this thread. Figures.

You don't have to BUY the video folks. Prince aint putting a gun to your head and pay the $1.77.

(or knowing his size, his gun to your crotch.)

Again, lets encourage him to keep putting up videos. Hopefully they'll be better, but hey its more of his "home made" videos, for better or worse.

The best thing about the internet, is that people like you can pretend to be positive and happy about everything, but you take the first opportunity to COMPLAIN ABOUT THE COMPLAINERS....that really makes you worse than the complainers to begin with.

Of course, you could say I am complaining about someone complaining about the complainers...Man this shit gets confusing sometimes.

If Prince fans are trying to sell me & others on downloading Screwdriver video, they are doing a horrible job. I just can't get amped to tell others to download a black & white music video w/ a hooded prince while some teenages quasi twist like a screw as a ploy to get young teenagers into your image again. More power to them, but the numbers have to be so incredibly low for downloads.

My suggestion: Focus on unreleased music & set up a subscription program where I don't have to go through the process of paying 1.77$ for every track. That gets old quick.

Seriously, how baffling is it that this is what Prince decided to focus on after the Grammy's, a black & white video of a song no one was really that excited about in the first place w/ no youtube or social media streams? Is this idea brilliant for the 21st century or what?

Sorry but no one is going to "GEEK" out over paying for a digital download music video. Countdown til Prince starts blaming the audience for people not being interested in getting "Screwed" lol

Even this whole "Screwdriver Live" video thing seems to be a retread of "The Undertaker" video.

lol, you crack me up. Prince could release the most amazing album ever and you would slag it off as a re-tread because he had released an album before.

It's blatantly obvious that Prince has run out of ideas long ago and is now simply retreading past successes desperate to score again.

If this was a new undertaker stle video it would be the most awesome thing in a long time. I hope it's that but am only expecting screwdriver vid.

It is Undertaker-style (a lame story, half-assed video, combined with a live performance). That it is nothing like it quality-wise is to be expected: Undertaker was performed with an actual band, not with some musicians he's taken a fancy to.

After years of no official releases of anything and no web presencse since 2009, Prince is releasing music again. We've seen in the past that Prince will lose interest in releasing material through his web sites if it's not bringing in money. I have no problem spending $1.77 for this and 88 cents for the songs. Even if I hit a song or video here or there that I don't like, it's an investment in more releases.

Of course people don't like his delivery as criticism is still very unexpected.

Bart isn't paying a bit of attention. He has a personal vendetta against Prince and carries it out on this website because he knows Prince/his people read this site.

Project much?

Prince could record a song that has the secret to curing cancer and Bart would screech about it being "the same old stuff".

Except he doesn't. I know you famz like to pretend that he does this every time, but he really doesn't. Y'all know damn well his output is lame and you can't stand when people point it out.

I wish he would go away. It'd be one thing if his criticism was constructive, but you know as well as I do that all he's doing is carrying on a personal grudge with Prince.

Please define constructive criticism. Is pointing out that launching three asstastic URLs in one month is amateurish constructive? Is pointing out that selling music in non-lossless formats is a rip-off constructive? Is pointing out that Prince's online store is an amateurish joke constructive? Is pointing out that communicating via an amateur gossip blogger who can't write if his life depended on it is amateurish at best, constructive?

I keep forgetting that I'm not allowed to dislike Prince's output. Silly me.

Right, just like you saw Gett Off, SexyMF, 3 Chains O'Gold, Sacrifice of Victor, and Undertaler videos before buying them.

Or heard any of his albums before you bought them - especially back in the day.

Spending money on a PHYSICAL item is a whole lot different than on a digital item. And most of those videos are longform videos. Also, those things get reviewed, so you knwo what you're in for.

Oh, and back int eh day radio used to premiere albums in my neck of the woods, often playing tracks from them about a week or two in advance. I'd taped almost all of D&P from the radio premiere two weeks before the release and had played that tape a lot before the album appeared in stores.

Also, back then you'd know you'd get quality product. Nowadays we live in the era of "Purple & Gold" and other shitastic output. Albums so bad Prince can't be arsed to promote them or play songs from them live.

I still doubt that he will release this unedited, because he played some cover versions, and that means he has to pay royalties if he wants to sell the video.

If it's edited, I'll stick to the unedited bootleg video in perfect quality.

Even though I like the new Prince music I agree that he seems 2 have been running out of new ideas, the music sounds the same since Musicology except Lotusflow3r which was the last album with exciting and really great Prince material. Screwdriver isn't nears as good as Dreamer and Wall of Berlin 4 example. But I'm glad he released the remix of Screwdriver cuz it's the best thing I heard since Lotusflow3r.

FYI depending on the source, YouTube offers video in three or four different encoding formats, each of them in several different bitrates (Don't believe me? Enter the URL of a high quality YouTube video into Keepvid). Websites like Bandcamp offer downloads in various formats and encodes.

There is NO REASON for Prince to offer downloads in just one format, other than incompetence. (Or perhaps greed: because charging $1.77 for a crummy encode leaves him the possibility of selling a higher quality version to some other distrbutor.)

It was a big let down to find it was going to be on a site for pay-per-download as opposed to being broadcast. It's not "LIVE" to me unless I watch it while it's going on. But ok, semantics.

The way the pitch was done just made the whole anticlimatic.

Now, had he let it be a surprise, it would have been different. I know Frank Ocean did SNL and then immediately uploaded a video for fans right after and it created a tone of excitement and got a lot of press and Twitter action. Ocean has done stuff like that several times and it's well coordinated.

This just felt like a trick. Saying "watch live" is different from a video shot live. And then he doesn't even just release it to the world on YouTube. I've never paid for a video and I don't intend to.

A song? Yes, a real feature-length film, yes?

Videos should be part of advertising to get people interested in buying the music or following an artist's career. A pay-per-view video doesn't even have the power to go viral. So, once again, Prince is limiting his scope. This is just all kinds of wrong from a marketing standpoint.

I hear that!

But, i bought the video cuz i'm a lifelong fan.

I, also, honestly don't think Prince will ever "get it", either. That's unfortunate.

Now an option to buy a 5 or 10 song pack would be great.. pay 8.80 via paypal and get a 10 song credit towards 3rdeyegirl.com song purchases so you can just get them as they go without having to redo the paypal thing would be great...

OR even the option to buy just $$ credits on the site.. Preload $10 on the site and as new material comes out then u just use your credit...

That way if Prince changes his mind along the way, it's easier for npg records to refund whatever $$ left of peeps credits to their paypal accounts without occurring any addl fees...

Smarty here wink

OK. I finally saw the video.

1. Seeing the 3rd eye girl band made me nostalgic for Wendy & Lisa.

2. Wow walking down that hallway ...memories of the Celebration.

3. I find it ODD and a bit sad that Prince appeared to have no chemistry with the 3rd Eye Girl Band. He's playing his guitar in one space and they are in another area playing behind him and I literally saw no synergy. Now, perhaps I'm spoiled because the beauty of seeing him play with the Revolution or Sheila E is that there is this camarderie, this exchange of energy, this call and response, back and forth. He exchanges looks with them and does not just stare out into a darkened abyss as he does in this video, oops "film" wink

For some reason to me he just looked so lonely playing his heart out othere; I mean the kiddies -- oops, teens, didn't connect with him (I don't know if they were told not to look at him, but they were dancing in the dark and not watching him at all) and the band didn't. There were three pools of isolation. That's what stood out most to me. (I'm weird). It wasn't right, to me. I like seeing Prince connect and I think his personality comes out more when he does. I know this band isn't a band of peers like the Revolution or Sheila, though.

5. I LOVED the hand of Prince extended through smoke and beckoning. Whoever said it reminded them of Fred Armisen on SNL was spot on! Too Funny.

6. Is anybody really going to do that dance? It was cheesy to me...dated... look like something from the classic days of American Bandstand.

Overalll, I glimpsed something I have never really liked about Prince ... and that is his desire to be "cool." I saw this when he attempted rap, and wearing braids in his hair during the NYE on-demand concert in 1999, and here I see it in his trying to create a dance and using ONLY dancers 3 decades younger. I really loathe the age-restricted "concert." It's just trying to hard for the wrong base and insulting the multi-generational fans who've been with him for years (Or maybe not -- I know how important it is for him to appear timeless and not dated. That's been an issue, for sure).

But does he really need to launch a new dance or contrive a youth appeal? When he was his coolest, he really didn't pander...he was just himself at the height of his enjoyment and skill.

So, anyway, I enjoy the song, mostly cause of the guitar and chorus, but I'm pretty glad I didn't buy or download the video. Seeng it once is enough for me.

This song is HOT! Screwdriver is hotter than the stolen tools/screwdrivers I get on the cheap at the flee market. Sure the video is corny and dancing silly but the song. No over production, good and catchy heavy guitar song. I like all version but Screwdriver remix is my favorite.

You are spot on here. He's gonna be 55 soon. He's been indifferent to his longtime fans for far too long. Sad thing is, I, like most of us, don't care. We always come back.

But does he really need to launch a new dance or contrive a youth appeal? When he was his coolest, he really didn't pander...he was just himself at the height of his enjoyment and skill.

contrive a youth appeal? More like just CONTRIVED!

Right again! I will be fine if I never see it again. Would like the audio, but the first 2:30 of the video is unwatchable. Boring Skit that meant nothing.

Last I checked there was no preview of the video. Or any of the songs, for that matter.

So you're still forced to pay for something without knowing what you're gonna get.

You may have been forced. I have the free will to choose.

Are you really comparing $100 & $77 subscription fees where you don't know exactly what that will get you to .88 & 1.77 single track prices where you know it will get you the one track? Really?!?

I'm surprised. You usually try a little harder than that to at least be logical with your sadomasochistic bitchfests.

Or heard any of his albums before you bought them - especially back in the day.

Spending money on a PHYSICAL item is a whole lot different than on a digital item. And most of those videos are longform videos. Also, those things get reviewed, so you knwo what you're in for.

Oh, and back int eh day radio used to premiere albums in my neck of the woods, often playing tracks from them about a week or two in advance. I'd taped almost all of D&P from the radio premiere two weeks before the release and had played that tape a lot before the album appeared in stores.

Also, back then you'd know you'd get quality product. Nowadays we live in the era of "Purple & Gold" and other shitastic output. Albums so bad Prince can't be arsed to promote them or play songs from them live.

I'm pretty sure this video has been reviewed. All. Over. This. Thread.

I also figure you know you way around the internets well enough to hear these before buying if you want.

I still doubt that he will release this unedited, because he played some cover versions, and that means he has to pay royalties if he wants to sell the video.

If it's edited, I'll stick to the unedited bootleg video in perfect quality.

There were covers on Sign "O" The Times (movie), The Undertaker, Rave Un2 The Year 2000, One Nite Alone DVD...

I'm assuming he paid royalties on those.

The dancers were of course filmed at a later date by themselves..even Prince and the band are filmed individually and spliced together as if they were all playin together.

No he hasnt, I happen to think albums like 3121, Musicology and Planet Earth for example are every bit as good as Sign O the Times etc, I get the same enjoyment out of listening to them as the older stuff and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I hav't seen this video yet but when I do, if I think its crap I wont be ready to write him off.

Really? Suspense? You don't watch many movies or TV shows, do you? The song was nice, the guitar playing was nicer, but the intro was pretty unwatchable. The 18-21 year olds stomping on cockroaches was simply a waste. Prince should give up trying to make videos. Lame.

Am I seriously seeing bitching here regarding the prices?

0.88 cents for the song in the first place is pittance. It equates to about 50p. And you want a free video for 0.88 cents too?

The video itself is only $1.77, by my reckoning about £1.00. Hardly an excessive spend. And needless to say, you are not forced to buy. If you're happy with the song for 0.88 you're welcome to settle for that. The film is merely a nice bonus for those interested.

I've purchased everything Prince has to offer on that site and it's barely the price of a pint of beer at my local. I know what I'd rather have.

Prince actually delivers a good value, simple, transparent site to deliver his music and people here still complain. I had issues with the Lotusflower site and the subscription fees, but not this.

I could care less if it was 88 cents or a million dollars. From a marketing standpoint, Prince is headed in a direction that is not going to help. He really should put videos on a website to watch for free in decent, but not HD quality, and then sell physical DVD of all his old videos.

Owning a DVD with all the videos over the years would be great. Charging for downloads is kinda dumb. I never intended to bitch about the price. I am just bitching about the concept of charging a download fee for something that many have not seen yet.

The word has already gotten out that the non-musical aspects of the video are all typical Prince cringe-worthy moments. He should really just do performance videos if he's not willing to at least hire a struggling writer to come with something better than 18 to 21 year olds stomping on fireants.

Prince's fanbase is older. I don't mind audio downloads, but still prefer physical cds that sound much better on great audio equipment.

Video downloads don't sound all that good on a surround system. The bitrate of Screwmyfans live is 128!!! That is awful sound. A pressed DVD, or God Forbid a Blu Ray sound exponentially better. Prince easily could put all his videos on a 4 Blu Ray set, but we know he won't.

If Prince was 25, and his fanbase was all young, this strategy might be ok. But with a bunch of old turds like me, sound and picture quality actually mean something. Paying 1.77 for some shitty sounding video of a very decent song is not a lot of money, but most our age want quality regardless of price. That's why I don't really care how much it costs, but the means of distribution.

Now since the non-musical aspects of this video are borderline ass-clown, I never want to see it again, but I do want to hear the audio again.

The dancers were obviously filmed later, but...

Live does not mean there is an audience. Recording live in a studio means recording the band playing the song all at once rather than one instrument at a time.

We cannot tell from this video that they weren't playing (and recording) all together.

Also, whether or not the video is a live performance and the music is a live performance are two different things.

The Undertaker was not free. Most of the videos on the Diamond And Pearls collection and 3 Chains O' Gold were not free. The videos on NPGMC were not free.

If Screwdriver was playing once an hour on MTV (Ha!) like Batdance did in '89, it would NOT be free for me as I don't have cable or satellite and would choose not to PAY for it just to see a Prince video.

Videos have been a promotional too to sell music. They have been offered for sale too!. I, for one, wish ALL of Prince videos were available to buy so I could get the ones not already offered for sale.

I still think the average over 40 Prince fan who make up the majority of those who will hand money over to him prefer cds. FLAC may as well be FUCKED, as it is a difficult format to quickly use and put on cd to play in the car. Those with skill may think it's easy, but for the average fan, no.

You must be using a proproietary operating system and have no access to any search machine whatsoever.

I mean: this is 2013. Burning flacs to CD if your music player still doesn't support flac at this time (why did you buy ot then?) is quite doable, even for dummies.

If you could ask every single person who purchases Prince's next physical cd release how easy it is to get a flac file quickly to cd, at least half or more wouldn't know flac from MS-DOS. Maybe 10% would even have used FLAC once. If FLAC was this format dummies could use with their eyes closed, why would anybody even consider bothering with an MP3? Why would physical cds even be sold? Other than some geeks here, the average Prince dummy wants to go to a Wreck A Stow.

And since the topic is DVD, Blu Ray mastered properly sounds way better than any download. And yes, I have heard decent sounding DVD from downloads.

So we have a consensus.

That implies that mr Prince `missold` live material (which technically isn't live).

Where is the BBB in Chanhassen?

The dancers were obviously filmed later, but...

Live does not mean there is an audience. Recording live in a studio means recording the band playing the song all at once rather than one instrument at a time.

We cannot tell from this video that they weren't playing (and recording) all together.

Also, whether or not the video is a live performance and the music is a live performance are two different things.

These are interesting points and distinctions.

I do wonder if they all played together because I voiced concern over the lack of chemistry/synergy earlier.

The part at the end where Prince steps back from the mike and the female guitarist (is that Donna?) steps forward made it seem like they were all there together.....?

Flac's are a ballache, i've got a load of crap I downloaded on FLac because i didnt realise it was in that format and i've never listened to most of it because I can only play it on VMplayer.

I once asked about a year ago on here how to get Flacs into mp3 and/or onto a cd and I was arrogantly told to use google. I hate that, if you know the answer just bloody say so, anyway I googled it and nothing of any use came up.

Since FLAC is obviously easier than ANYTHING imaginable, please explain to me how MP3 even exists anymore? This So easy FLAC format sounds so easy that the 3 year old that plays Video Games could master in 3 seconds. If it this easy, it seems it would be the dominant format.

What weird people we have in the industry. We have this Superior sound quality format out there that is so simple Gilligan could use it, but it just doesn't catch on.

Nobody said it was "easier than anything imaginable", or, at least I didn't.

MP3 exists because it is a standard that is playable on many (almost all) media players, dvd players and for a while now, even CD players.

It's the standard because everybody knows it and everybody's devices will play it. It's common for a lessor quality format to be the standard in media, particularly in audio.

I don't know any 3 year olds that know what an mp3 is much less a FLAC. But, any adult that can turn a wav file (which is what is on a CD) into an mp3, can also turn a wav into a flac, a flac into a wav or a flac into an mp3. There are dozens of audio convertors that will convert any audio file into any other kind of audio file with the click of a button. Most of them aren't free. FLAC Frontend is free and will turn the FLAC into a WAV. Everybody already knows how to turn a WAV into an MP3, so, problem solved.

Why be against a lossless format that preserves the sound quality and frequencies of the recording? Is it because you don't understand it or because you just can't hear the difference?

For the record I would prefer CD, Vinyl, Bluray & DVD too. If I pay for something I want to put it on the shelf and add it to my collection, and with downloads, I can't do that. But, Prince isn't releasing this material in a physical format, at least not yet, and, if it's going to be digital at least the price is right. If the quality is lossless, I have 1 less thing to complain about and can focus on the good: new music that I'm digging...

Can't you see this is because of hysterical historical reasons?

Bandwidth was scarce, storage was not cheap.

Nowadays, depending on where you are, bandwith can be OK or even good.

Storage is affordable.

So why not simply rip the CD and put teh WAVs on the harddisk/SDcard/whatever.

Why 'gain' a few megabytes per track at the cost of processing time and degraded audio quality.

All this is unnecessary. Just play the WAVs.

This So easy FLAC format sounds so easy that the 3 year old that plays Video Games could master in 3 seconds. If it this easy, it seems it would be the dominant format.

Ever heard of the word marketing?

Companies are lazy. They'd rather make ipods and such with patent encumbered mp3 decoders or even patented prorietary formats (apple has a few) instead of using a good open format.

With an open format you cannot compete or even protect your supposed assets.

What weird people we have in the industry. We have this Superior sound quality format out there that is so simple Gilligan could use it, but it just doesn't catch on.

Compare to people still bying vinyl when the same audio is on CD.

Is vinyl the latest hysteria?

Or DVD-A?

The sheeple won't catch on to simple and good stuff unless you force feed them that stuff.

Force via marketing or price differences for example.

My suggestion: Focus on unreleased music & set up a subscription program where I don't have to go through the process of paying 1.77$ for every track. That gets old quick.

I got a better idea: $77 for a subscription service. Yes that's brilliant!

Oh and genius, its 88 cents per track. You poor poor poor impoverished baby.

Subscription, for those who don't understand, you get what you're given after you already forked over your case. With pay-by-track, you do have the choice of buying or not buying said track.

But alas. Just amazing that Prince is TRYING to do the right thing, and fandom still has to call 911 for the Wahbulance.

Wrong. Hiring professionals to run a website that even someone in middle school could do better than what he currently is would be "trying to do the right thing". Not releasing sub-substandard material which he probably wouldn't have wasted tape or a passing thought on back in the 1983 (back when he actually had passion for music and an ear for great dance tunes) would be him "trying to do the right thing".

It's a shame that you ended up with 2 versions but did you really not work out they "screwdriver live mov" and "screwdriver live mp4" were in fact the same thing in different formats?

But yep, the video ain't great, I only bought it for the live version of the song. But saying that, I've never been bothered by any of his videos, it's the music I always wanted, so for me to say the vid ain't great doesn't mean much.

I once asked about a year ago on here how to get Flacs into mp3 and/or onto a cd and I was arrogantly told to use google. I hate that, if you know the answer just bloody say so, anyway I googled it and nothing of any use came up.

So Flac can fukin do one!

Google foobar, if you must convert FLAC to mp3, i do it only to save space. I'm happy with 320 mp3's. Heresay to others i know.

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

Oh, BTW:

The video is different now.

It's smaller in size.

And the site's security is BAD.

Let's put it this way:

If one lets the end user control whatever goes to the payment processor and one does not check the return values of the payment processor then the end user can do stuff.

The shorter video is lacking the intro. The ending is still the same, so that looks out of place.

The sound is the same, bitrate is the same.

I emailed the folks at prince2013.org about this.

So far no one appears to reply or acknowledge they understand that due to this problem with each purchase mr Prince could lose up to $1.76 per time the item is purchased from prince2013.com.

Even at the org no one reads the org to make this sticky and/or acknowledge I handled this ethically correct in some way.

What I wanna know is this:

Could our account info be hacked? If so, they definitely need to beef up security...

Udo, they should give you some free tracks for pointing this out to them. wink

We were HERE, where were you?

4 those that knew the number and didn't call... fk all y'all!

At prince2013.org the real work is done at paypal.com.

After paying there, the site gets back your emaill adress and also presents you with a download link.

So no real info about you is on prince2013.com (maybe IP and date/time etc but nothing special).

Udo, they should give you some free tracks for pointing this out to them. wink

Thanks, but first someone needs to respond.

Of course the godaddy.com domainsby proxy registration hiding does not really help here.

So that is baaaad for security.

Or should I try to find a phone number for 7801 Audubon road?

Most Paisley Park Enterprises numbers listed on the interwebz are disconnected and/or no longer in use.

Or 'no longer representing him'.

So who does have info to contact mr Prince's business concerning matters regarding his websites?

I've only just got around to purchasing/downloading this vid.

Did the purchase version ever have the Donna intro and all the band boys vs girls thing like the initial live streaming version?

Ta!

I'm a little unclear what you meanb when you say "the initial live streaming version." However, for the first few days (maybe up to a week?) the video for purchase had the intro with the boys vs. girls scenario, and at some point about a week later, that version was taken down and replaced with the shorter "performance only" version. Not sure why.

No confusion, no tears. No enemies, no fear. No sorrow, no pain. No ball, no chain.

Sex is not love. Love is not sex. Putting words in other people's mouths will only get you elected.

Thanks blue angel, that's exactly what I meant. I didn't realise I'd left it so long before purchase.

I watched the longer version, I think via 3rdeyegirl YouTube account (that's what I meant by streaming version).
