OK - P I aint that mad atcha...


This is a C-O-O-L track. Very minimilistic...Emacipation style with subdued P horns meet Theivery Corporation...nice

Love that he is using LAYRED vocals again. YES!

Maybe it's funky, but its his worse 2013 track for me.

I just don't dig it.

I think we are the only 2 people who didn't like it.

Good grief. Even after reading everyone's posts about right-clicking the link, I still managed to lose a download. So counterintuitive!

Love the sound of the song, the horns, the bass, the cymbals, but the lyrics bug me. The chorus, "Please keep your boyfriend away from me," I mean... I don't know... I'll keep listening and see if my opinion changes.

Listened to it a few times. Prince elevates it because he's Prince, but the song itself is unremarkable imo. The horns and bass sound great, and I'm hearing an 88 influence, which is always good. Like a Fuschia Light meets Van Gogh kind of vibe. Not bad, just not very exciting to me. I like BCW better.

I made one of those, but threw Same Page Different Book and the extended version of Laydown on there, so that I'd have a reason to listen to those some more. and the extended RNR Love Affair.

Also made a longer one with the orphaned tracks from 2010 onward (Cause & Effect, Rich Friends, Hot Summer and Extraloveable), for similar reasons.

God bless Purple & Gold, but I couldn't bring myself to include it.

I doubt he will. Most that want them already have them. But it would be a good idea. Maybe a fire sale of stray orphans from the last several years. $10 bucks for the dozen or so tracks in the last decade that didn't have a home other than a streaming "release" or "leak"

Lyrically these new songs are terrible....this is lazy lazy stuff. Does prince actually think that people who dug ballad of dorothy parker, condition of the heart et al are gonna appreciate this music. Where is the IQ count gone!!!..The dude used to be cerebral as well as filthy...well thats my two pence.

I really like the new track on first listen... Hope he stays on the right track! wink Only complaint is that it is too short... I have the feeling this is just the abbreviated version of the song...

Please keep your boyfriend away from me

Cuz I just don't want to fight

I'll not take responsibility

For where you sleep tonight

Don't ask for my opinion

Cuz I just can't hold my tongue

But under his dominion

You won't be having fun

He sees you as possession

When I just see a queen

Closer to perfection

Than any I've ever seen

Please keep your boyfriend away from me

Cuz I just don't want to fight

I'll not take responsibility

For where you sleep tonight

From what your body told me

You and I would get along

If I were you I'd hold me

All else would just be wrong

With the deepest mark of magic

My name upon your walls

For him it must be tragic

But the bestest of them all I am

So...

Please keep your boyfriend away from me

Cuz I just don't want to fight

I'll not take responsibility

For where you sleep tonight



Hmm. I don't mind this song at all, it rolls along nicely. But as littlejim said, lyrically, where has the guy that wrote 'The Ballad of Dorothy Parker' gone? Big fucking difference.

Dorothy was a waitress on the promenade
She worked the night shift
Dishwater blonde, tall and fine
She got a lot of tips
Well, earlier I'd been talkin' stuff
In a violent room
Fighting with lovers past
I needed someone with a quicker wit than mine
Dorothy was fast
Well, I ordered, "Yeah, let me get a fruit cocktail, I ain't to hungry"
Dorothy laughed
She said "Sounds like a real man to me"
Kinda cute, you want to take a bath?
(do you want to, do you want to, bath)
I said "Cool, but I'm leaving my pants on" (what she say?)
"'cause I'm kind of going with someone"
She said "Sounds like a real man to me"
"Mind if I turn on the radio?"
"Oh, my favorite song" she said
And it was Joni singing "Help me I think I'm falling"

The phone rang and she said
"Whoever's calling can't be as cute as you"
Right then I knew I was through
(Dorothy Parker was cool)
My pants where wet, they came off
But she didn't see the movie
Cause she hadn't read the book first
Instead she pretended she was blind
An affliction brought on by a witch's curse
Dorothy made me laugh (ha ha)
I felt much better so I went back
To the violent room (tell us what you did)
Let me tell you what I did

I took another bubble bath with my pants on
All the fighting stopped
Next time I'll do it sooner
This is the ballad of Dorothy Parker

Dorothy Parker, Dorothy Parker, Dorothy Parker
Dorothy Parker, Dorothy Parker, Dorothy Parker
Well
Dorothy Parker, Dorothy Parker
Well

eye think of prince like a "ACT OF GOD"! N another realm. eye mean of all people who might b aliens or angels.if found out that prince wasn't of this earth, eye would not b that surprise. All prince needs 2 do 2 take over the world again is decide he wants 2.
