We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

But I confess, after three minutes in, I'm always eager for "Right Back Here In My Arms" to come up.

Up until a year or so ago, I didn’t realize that “Push It Up” became a song while Prince and Doug E were working on a remix of Jam of The Year.

JotY was good live. I agree with everyone that it didn’t live up to it’s name, but it’s a smooth tune.

I like it. Of all the songs I listen to on Emancipation, it makes the list for me.

It's smooth. It's funky. I like it.

There's something really plastic about it, production-wise. Too neat and perfect sounding. There's just this....sheen to it (and the album as a whole) that really chaps my ass. Is it a good song at it's core? I guess. Definitely not in his top 200 (and certainly not as an album opener). Emancipation's production as a whole is too Smooth Jazz for my tastes. I want my Prince music to sound like it could all fall apart at any second, not that pre-packaged tv dinner bs this album is guilty of having. Its a rough one for me, obviously.

Live version is so much better than the album.

(Insert something clever here)
