Are you talking about "The Crime, The passion, The Rapture" from The Scandalous Sex Suite? I love the guitar solo on "The Rapture".
The Japanese version of this "maxi single" is even better with a total of 9 tracks on it. All this AND it includes one of my favorite b-sides "Sex".

Snap - haha!

If it is what you're referring to Astasheiks, then I'm sure most will be familiar with it, even own it (as I do).

I agree, despite the Basinger mumblings and groanings the Scandalous trilogy makes an average ballad pretty cool.

Um....it's pretty much standard issue for Prince fans.

The Scandalous Sex Suite, released...[and] transforms the song into a three-part suite. "The Crime" is a seductive conversation between Prince and Kim Basinger with various lyrics from the song interspersed. "The Passion" features the main song with new lyrics sung over the original lyrics. "The Rapture" includes a long guitar solo before finishing up the conversation from part one.

"Scandalous!" replaced "Still Would Stand All Time" as Batman's main ballad and love theme. The discarded song would later end up on Graffiti Bridge. Composer Danny Elfman adapted parts of "Scandalous!" into his Batman film score, where it served as a love theme.

Yes.

But I would set my sights on the Japanese version if you can find it. The extra tracks are great.

Wikipedia, but I seem to almost remember that story. Not sure if it's true. Someone check The Vault.

PrinceVault didn't mention it, but it could certainly be true - despite being on Wiki. wink

There are, however slightly concerning elements to the song

"talk to me pretty warm thing, tell me when you cum one time"

that bit alone says:

1) he refers to woman as pretty warm things

2) he's not confident enough that he will be able to tell she's come.

3) perhaps he's not used to having sex with women who are warm and can talk....and there's a word for that smile

I kinda-sorta remember reading in a more reputable place than Wikipedia that Still Would Stand All Time was very briefly considered for Batman, either before he came up with Dance With The Devil or after he decided against it but before he added Scandalous.

wasn't there a video made for it? I remember that is was said to have been filmed but that it was shelved and maybe destroyed as being way too naughty?
