The Dance Electric...

Just listening to PRINCE's version of this again... And this states clearly what he lived for and died for. My opinion obviously. No one will ever do this again, not like Prince. Wish I could post a link...

Good morning children...
Take a look out your window
Our world is falling
It's almost time to go

Dance the Dance Electric
The rhythm is love and love is blind
Love your enemies
There isn't much time, there isn't much time

Look - our world is falling
A rhythmless house of blinded prophecy
Hear our Master calling
This isn't what He wanted us to be

We got to dance the Dance Electric
Listen to the rhythm of your soul
Come on and dance the Dance Electric
We better love each other, it's almost time to go

Don't - it don't make you happy
To give another someone your own smile
Dance the dance electric
Never mind your hatred, try a brand new style


Dance the Dance Electric
Listen to the rhythm of your soul
Come on and dance the Dance Electric
We better love each other, it's almost time to go

We... love... all... enemies


Look - you're livin' in Babylon
Makin', but not feelin' love at all
When your youth is gone, when it comes to dawn
A light of truth will shine and you will fall

That's why you got to dance the Dance Electric
Listen to the rhythm of your soul
Come on and dance the Dance Electric
We better love each other, it's almost time to go

See the light inside of us
It's darkened if we live a life that's bad
Whatever you do, don't you let your light go dark my love
It's the only light that you will ever have

Why don't you dance the Dance Electric
Listen to the rhythm of your soul
Come on and dance the Dance Electric
We better love each other, it's almost time to go

Dance the Dance Electric
Listen to the rhythm of your soul
Come on and dance the Dance Electric
We better love each other, it's almost time to go....

Let it go...and so, not let it fade away...

I dig the song, but I wish there was a 7" cut as it goes on and on and on. And on. If he says "dance electric" once, he says it a thousand times. Gets a bit monotonous.

Is poverty bringing U down?
Is the mailman jerking U 'round?
Did he put your million dollar check
In someone else's box?
Tell me, what's the m

The Dance Electric is a classic: music

However, a wrong version released by Warner,

So very bad the released version is without Wendy & Lisa's backing-vocals.. sad sad

That's how I feel about automatic.

Did feel that way about TDE at first too but that one somehow grew on me.

Hell the song could go on for 20 minutes I love this song I think it is in my top 10 of all time Prince songs. The beat is so apocolyptic. Six minutes in pretty much it is just the chorus over and over again which I am fine with, as the guitars start going crazy...Wendy, Andre's and Lisas vocals are then played backwards. Just a climactic song. I have 13 different versions of the songs on my computer. love the funky 2012 rehearsal of it too... 8:35 minutes of funk.

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

This version would be the definitive version if it weren't for the skip around the 9 minute mark...

I saw a PRD podcast and someone mentioned that other one that they acted like the person was crazy and said they were thinking of "Possessed"

Anyone for banning the AR15 must be on the side of the criminal as once banned only criminals will have them.

Yes I agree with u, -- about the skip, confused

I feel the skip was made "on purpose", either by P or the person who leaked this version?

Could that be true? Hmmm......? hmmm

He meant what he was saying to Andre about giving him the song.

And everytime I scratch my nails down someone else's back I hope you feel it.. WELL CAN YA FEEL IT?!
