As most know, Prince was a fan of The Cocteau Twins, so perhaps he just wanted to acknowledge them in some way. In any case, as a huge fan of both artists I'm quite pleased that there's at least some connection between the two of them, however vague!

He could have made a similar beat all on his own of course, but I think the sample works really well for this track and it's a nice little homage.

Prince would've sued your ass for such "a nice little homage".

And that Cocteau Twins sample consists of nothing more than a single, repeated note. ONE note.


lol

and true love lives on lollipops and crisps

Yet each note counts as one infringement.

the director of "the great gatsby" said in an interview that the song prince gave them
to be on the soundtrack was his version of "love thy will be done" but they could not
get it cleared because of that sample.

UGH! That's so crushing.

Prince's version is one of my all time favorites of unoffically-released boot stuff. I would have loved to have finally had this in perfect quality.

That beat is nothing special, and hardly sample-license-problems worthy. Frustrating.

They played Prince's version of this song on The Current 2 months ago. Being that the radio station is in Minn. they play a lot of Prince. They are playing Moonbeam Leverls a lot too.

There was also a huge scandal aroung Public Enemy's Fear Of A Black Planet, which was a massive money making success but full of samples from beginning to end.

.

Huh? FOABP a "massive money making success"? What nonsense is this?

.

Well..I bought it on cassette. lol

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