great message, just wish he had worked more on the lyrics and music here. One day I Prince would adapt using bongos or African beats or elements of other cultures in his music. I have 2 let this song and the Lion Of Judah sink in a little more.

As soon as I hear him starting to sing, it reminds me of some simplistic song on a children's TV programme for 4-7 year olds:

I think this song is great pop.. sounds like 7 mixed with raspberry beret.. not quite as good as either but really popish fun but with a serious message.

I think that's pretty much how I see the song. I wanted to like it but so far it ain't happening.

mine too. together with "All The Midgniths in the World" those are my
favorite tracks on the disc.

can't say i really dislike any other tracks though, they're all nice
enough. but i totally enjoy these three!
and true love lives on lollipops and crisps

One of the best songs on Planet Earth IMO

No masterpiece, but a breezy, enjoyable popsong (the lyrics aside), one of the few songs i hear Prince trying actually something new: an almost acoustic seventies-type of pop-song, almost a bit folky.

Alltough it not really sounds like that song, it reminds me a bit of 'Hope of deliverance' from Paul McCartney, using a breezy, catchy popsong to deliver a 'message'.

I'm embarrassed for him on that one.

Overall I really love 2 tracks, (Planet Earth and Guitar)...I like 2 more a lot, (Somewhere Here On Earth and The One U Wanna C)... 2 are okay, (Mr. Goodnight and Lion Of Judah)... and the others, not so much. I have mixed feelings about the album similar to the way I felt about Musicology.

With the exception of one song, Somewhere Here On Earth, his voice is pretty average.
The music is good although not particularly outstanding for me except for Planet Earth and Somewhere here on Earth.

However, since Prince gave me exactly what I wanted with 3121 I won't complain or whine about PE. It's someone else's turn...that's all.

I give PE a 6/10.
Prince, in you I found a kindred spirit...Rest In Paradise.

lyrics:

The main problem with war
Is that nobody ever wins
The next generation grows up
Learns how to do it all over again.

No matter who started the argument
Just matters how each one ends
How many people really want resolution?

The main problem with people
Is they never do what they say
One minute they want peace
Then do everything to make it go away

Dropping bombs on each other
In the act of saving face
Tell me now people how is that resolution?

Either you do or you don't
Either you will or you won't
Making amends is a difficult pill to swallow

What can we lose if we try?
With no water a flower dies
With no one to lead, resolution will follow.

Love is like a circle
No beginning and no end
A broken heart will mend
When you love it like your best friend

Handle your heart with care
It's as delicate as a wing
When the storms come again
Pray for resolution

All over the world.....tell me how many people really want resolution?

I have read people being very criticial about these lyrics on another Prince fansite, but i dont really get that.

I mean, a pop-song is not really the 'device' for a solid political analysis, lyrics in a pop-song often work on another level.

I mean, you can say the same about 'Imagine' by John Lennon, that those lyrics are expressing a naive take on reality, but nonetheless people keep being inspired by those lyrics, because they 'work' in the context of the music.

I rate the lyrics of 'Imagine' higher then those of 'Resolution', but i mean, within the context of the music, within the context of a pop-song, the lyrics of Resolution are on spot IMO.

I <3 this song. It makes me feel 16 again.

The keys during the final fadeout almost bring tears to my eyes.

My second fav after All the Midnight's in the World. I like the "ooohs" and "aahhhs" and the catchy tune.

Same here.

That being said, the horn and guitar sound awesome. This just isn't my cup of tea. As always, maybe it will grow on me.

It's awful!!!

I like the production - the twangyness of the guitars and W&L's cooing vocals...

However, the lyrics are nothing more than embarrassing High School poetry and the melody sounds like something Bruno Martelli would have composed for Doris Schwartz to sing, at a benefit concert for a student with brain cancer - or something.

Great analogy

And lovely to see you, Justin.

I don't understand all the hate for what is a GREAT song...all the bickering about the complexity of the lyrics? There are many Prince songs that deal with broad universal concepts and the reason that they still play well is the lack of specifics. You could make the same arguments about Pop Life...which has simple lyrics with big ideas. But I suppose some would like another Ronnie Talk to Russia. I think the ones that are accusing this song of being simple minded lack the depth to really understand the song. Am I the only one who's reading some personal undertones in this song between prince and w & l? So haters...whats the matter with your life?
