Love the song from start to finish.. My only complaint is that it should have been a bit longer..

Has anyone else noticed the similarity between this song and Golden Parachute? The flute is almost identical...

I don't know about Golden Parachute (I thought one time listening to that was enough...) but I hear elements of Donald Trump (black version).

Quite like this one. It sometime borders on muzak but fortunately he held back on the cheese so it does not end up a trainwreck like Big City

A painting of Dido Elizabeth Belle and her sister is up as the artwork for this week's Purple Pick Of The Week on Tidal.

Look at me
Tell me what U see
The back and forth of an earthquake
Goes strong and sturdy tree
I ask myself this question, but it's still a mystery
How I'm gonna keep my balance when I
Look at U

How can U not know
Standing over there like a Nefertiti, or the queen, Dido
Please don't think too ill of me
It's all that I can do
Not to feel myself when I
Look at U

Modesty aside, whoever made U should be praised. Yes!
Ain't no need to hide
Every glass should be raised
Brandy or martini
Kudos overdue
What else is there really when I
Look at U?

Fight it, yes, my soul has tried
When U look at me
All other women just roll their eyes
But even Ray Charles can see U
Stevie Wonder can too
Thoughts well up and wonder
Thinking about me and U
A dozen fantasies U
Call me won and done
When U look at me
Look at U, look at me

.
Corrections are welcome. smile

She's a queen (in the song lyrics), not the Queen. And you must see the film. Me too. :)

I like this one a lot. It sounds like he reused the flute bit from the very end of Mellow. It also reminds me of one of my favorite later period Stevie songs.

Really like this mature and silky smmoth jazz sound...

Also, good find on Mellow...the ending does sound very similar

The greatest live performer of our times was is and always will be Prince.

Remember there is only one destination and that place is U
All of it. Everything. Is U.

Interesting choice of a painting. Any idea how it relates to the Look at me, look at u? I can see it possibly relating to Revelation.

Sorry, I missed your post. Yes, she's mentioned in the lyrics. Perhaps Prince was gazing upon it while he wrote them.

I think she has half-siblings from her father's side and in this picture,it's her cousin or second-cousin.

Anyways this is a transcendent ballad. I can imagine him performing it live and us ladies (and some fanboys) swooning over this cloud9
Also it's nice he gave a little shout out to Ray charles and Stevie wonder cool
