Wishful thinking...

As there have been some real nice tunes coming out of the woodwork, I was wondering what else is up there with Wally in the Purple Folklore?

.

Nothing Compares 2 U (Prince guide vocals)?

.

When Doves Cry (with bass)?

.

An Honest Man (full studio version)

.

???

As a huge fan of both I'm perwsonally very interested in Prince's version of Michael Jackson's Bad.

And his guitar heavy version of Like A Prayer.

I heard there's an hour long version of I Would Die For You floating around, and the 90 minute America, from which the single version was cut down.

I thought the story was that the tape ran out on America. They might have played for 90 mins, but I'm pretty sure no recording exists.

I respect ya'lls tastes and such, but it boggles my brain that people actually want to sit through half an hour of i would die 4 u (or was is take me with u? Idk lol), or shit this 90 (!!!!) minute America. Just like men, longer isn't always necessarily better lol.

Agreed. I don't mind sitting through something a bit longer if it's interesting the whole way through (like the full-length "Computer Blue") but I don't have the attention span to sit through those 30+ minute jam-fests where the band lingers on the same bit for minutes at a time lol

Hell, I can't even really get into the 20 minute version of "America", it never really goes anywhere. The live version from France is cool though, I wish Prince would have laid that kind of magic down in the studio

I was about to say the same, the 20 minutes of America are just more than enough and one hour of IWDFU i can't stand the 30 minutes let alone 60 minutes.

I think luvsexy4all is talking about "Soul Psychodelicide".

"The song's a year long an had been played for months, when he walked into that place "

Sounds beautiful, but does it mean that is a year long since it was created or that the song's length is one year?

It's a quote from the song "Joy in Repetition":

You can check out the lyrics here:

I'm pretty sure that Prince meant the song's length.. smile
