Early Concept of "Corporate World"

So J.C. Munson (one of Prince's art directors from '88 to '94) shared a new picture which is a preliminary tracklist of the "Corporate World" project.
.
It's very interesting, it shows that "The Sex Of It" - "Dream Factory" and "Miss Thang" were intended at one point to be for The Time.

Pretty sure that sometimes Prince just wrote shit down to kick start his brain and that Dream Factory was never seriously considered for The Time.

Interesting.
Never considered The Sex of It as a possible song for The Time.
Gonna give it a new listen.

Come to think of it,"The Sex of it" does sound like a Time song.I can imagine that song with Morris Day on lead vocals easily

That would've been a very interesting and different album. Some more depth for Morris lyrically also.

I think if Morris did Dream Factory it would be very different from the version we know. I never heard Miss Thang, and The Sex Of It I vaguely remember from Kid Creole, but I think they rerecorded it or something. I dunno, I think Morris is the magic to The Time tracks in the way Harrison Ford is the magic to Star Wars, Robert Downey is to Marvel.. just that charisma and ease in the big moments that glues it all together.

"The Sex Of It" is easily Morris-esque!

...and no, Kid Creole never re-recorded it...

He just spat over it...
