The Best Line In A Prince Song

From controversy : 'Do you get high? Does your daddy cry?'
Not so much the words, the way he sings it it just makes me want to cry.
as well as in the same song

'Some people wanna die so they can be free
So life is just a game, we're all just the same?'
and then he slides back into the funky part and it totally pisses me off, I want that songs melodramatic moment to go on for 8 minutes just like purple rain smile
Personally . I think we are all Boring with No Lives cause all we do is talk about Prince,Criticize and Gossip. I need a Horny Man is what I Need and probably so do most of yas. We are Sexually Frustrated what we R... Amen..!!! - zelaire

How odd..I like those parts very much too..I dont get pissed though when he goes back to the funk..it makes those melodies stand out the more and makes it like a push me pull you rubberband song. Controversy is his best song. I cant believe it took me this long to realize that.

You are so right RDHull, I Feel it is Prince's best song too and I don't know why no one else seems to notice it as one of his best.

Because:
1.They arent blessed

2.They are heathens

3.They are young, dumb and full of cum

4.They cant dance

5.They are "stubbrent"

6.All the taste they have is in their mouths

7.Just like some people cant "hear" Jimi, some people cant "hear" Prince essence.

8. That saying about "...bliss..."

9. They dont know the power of Chicken Scratch

Somebody said "In life, there's always peaks and valleys
And if you're lost, they won't show you the way."

-SWANGcanrelate

P.S. - in a non-Prince song:

The world is all around us
The days are flying past
And fear is so contagious
But I'm not afraid to laugh
-Neil Finn

Pretty poignant stuff after 9/11...even though it was written before it.

"4 Those who know the # & don't call... f*ck all y'all" ... well Prince, if u insist lol ... wink hehe

Seriously ... its mighty catchy wouldnt u say, certainly gets my jaw a-adroppin razz

But if u r lookin 4 the more 'spiritual take' "...& i c all of ur creations as 1 perfect complex, no 1 less beautiful or more special as the next..." & "even when there is no peace outside my window there is peace inside..."

Cant hide from those lines ... damn i luv the gush of meaning from his songs .... ooohhh now im feelin a little light headed lol wink smile "oh please...."



.... boogy oogie woogie oogie edit shoes keep me editing all night lol lalalala

I kinda like the "Come on, get your cum on..." from Emancipation.

All of Sexy MF. All of Gett Off. (Now there's a best Prince-song for you!)

And I gotta admit, when I first heard the "If you ever lose someone dear to you, never say the words - "They're gone" - they'll come back!" I was... taken.

Very few of Prince's lyrics seem to have* much to do with his own experiences and sometimes it's very moving when they do. But he's a very good lyricist, even when the words just seem to be fantasies and melodrama.


* I don't KNOW this, of course, and I don't claim that I do. But I doubt that workin’ part-time in a 5-and-dime and rollerskating around the lake is how P spends most of his afternoons.

He says "look here, martian", doesn't he. "I sincerely wanna fuck the taste outta your mouth". Tastes like chicken.

off the top f my head...

"in france a skinny man died of a big disease with a little name..."

"...burnin rubber in my pants..."

"baby can I dress u, I mean help u pick out ur clothes, before we go out"

"maybe u think I'm bein a little self centred, but I just wanna be, I just wanna be...all the things u r 2 me" (might spot a SOTT theme here).

best non-Prince (tho it is a rip off of prince):

My current fave:

you're the reason I took a rope & lassoed the moon
to prove that when it comes to you there's nothin' I won't do...
I'd stare into the sun if you'd be mine
it's not so great a leap since to all others I am blind...








DAAAMN... disbelief kiss

'U gotta have a mutha 4 me now move yo big ass round this way so I can work on that zippa baby' (Gett Off)

'Sometimes it snows in April
Sometimes I fell so sad
Sometimes I wish that life was never-ending
But all good things they say never last'

'when it comes 2 funk, I am a junkie' is quite cool (My name is Prince)
