This gives me hope we'll see the Prince original version of Jody Watley's "Still A Thrill" I know it exists. All the denial in the world that Prince didn't write it are bullshit and a half. No way in fuck he didn't write it.




You made me check it out... yes there are a lot of timely (as in patterns he was using right at that time) elements in there that sound just like Prince if it was then finished and mixed by another producer. Outside of the tone and presence of the funk guitar chords, I forwarded to the bridge/breakdown and heard that synth bassline pattern that sounds like one of the Madhouse tracks and also one remix of 101.


It was produced by David Z who was producing Mazarati and Kiss for Prince at the time.

Put me in the pile o orgers that had this as 1 o their "holy grails". He doesn't go 4 it vocally in the way Sheena did in her version, but he doesn't really need 2. Classic material, both takes thumbs up!

Too bad that there isn´t a version of the Uptown remix of this song with Prince on vocals since it is a remix that uses Sheena´s version´s vocals.

I love this leak, been listening to it on repeat.

The Uptown remix, however, is even better.

Great song, and now with Prince´s vocals I like it even better.

I just heard the Uptown Mix 4 the first time n was only mildly impressed, the beat is nice, but the slower, original beat fits the song mo betta, imo. P vocals = cool thumbs up!.

Sheena has said that "101" was her favorite studio recording. Sheena recorded "101" at Paisley Park studios in September of 1988.

I especially like the line "My girlfriends bore me, nothing on TV"....I know it´s meant to be sung by Sheena so it´s about friends rather than lovers but it sounds so much better when it´s sung from Prince´s perspective, considering he often had many overlapping relationships at the same time. Makes it sound brutally honest and like he´s not giving a damn about admitting it.

Would have been cool if he had released his own version with that same line.

Yes, yes. It's such a haunting song. Sheena does well with it, but to hear P's rendition - the angst - it's simply amazing.
