A Strawberry Question

I've recently gotten back into the Mazarati album, especially "Strawberry Lover" for some reason. Which got me thinking:


What is the meaning/significance of strawberries in Prince's music? Beyond Prince, in mid-1980's pop

culture?


A Love Bizarre

"A strawberry mind..."


Mazarati

"A strawberry lover..."


I'm sure there are more examples that I can't think of right now.


Did strawberry mean something back then? Or was it just a colorful word to use in a lyric? I'm looking on urbandictionary.com but it's not really flattering. biggrin

imprimis

Some form of neo-psychedelic, post-Purple, vaguely erotic allusion and nonce word suggesting succulence. I wouldn't trust that there's very much substance behind it.

When I was younger there were trips going around called strawberries with a strawberry on them.

"A strawberry mind, a body that's built for two" kinda sounds like a 3-way

"I like to watch."
