Joy in Repetition Love it or like it?

Joy in Repetition

{crowd noise same as for "Alphabet Street"}

He like to frequent this club down up on 36th
Pimps and thangs like 2 hang outside and cuss for kicks

Talking 2 no one in particular, they say "the baddest I am tonight"
4 letter words are seldom heard with such dignity and bite.
All the poets and the part time singers always hang inside
live music from a band plays a song called "Soul Psychodelicide".
The song's a year long and had been playing 4 months when he
walked into the place.
No one seemed to care, an introverted this-is-it look on most of their faces.
Up on the mic repeating 2 words, over and over again
was this woman he had never noticed before he lost himself in the
articulated manner in which she said them.
These 2 words, a little bit behind the beat.
I mean just enough 2 turn u on.
4 everytime she said the words another one of his doubts were gone.

Should he try 2 rap with her' Should he stand and stare'
No one else was watching her, she didn't seem 2 care.
So over and over, she said the words til he could take no more, (no more)
he dragged her from the stage and together they ran through the back door
In the alley over by the curb he said tell me what's your name
she only said the words again and it started to rain (rain, rain, rain)
2 words falling between the drops and the moans of his condition
holding someone is truly believing there's joy in repetition.
There's joy in repetition.
There's joy in repetition.
There's joy in repetition.
There's joy in repetition.
She said love me, love me, what she say'
she say love me, love me.
Joy, why don't u love me baby, joy, why can't u love me baby
joy, come on and love me baby, joy in repetition
Alright, joy in repetition,
Alright, joy in repetition,
Alright, joy in repetition,
Alright, joy, all my wishes add up to one
Love me, joy, Love me, joy, Love me, joy
Love me, Love me, joy, joy, joy in repetition
joy, joy in repetition,
joy, joy (love me) in repetition,
Love me, love, joy, joy, joy in repetition
joy, and I'm gonna say it again, joy, joy, and I'm gonna say it again,
joy, I'd like 2 go way up high and say, Love me, joy
I'll say Love me, joy
Joy, joy in repetition, joy in repetition
There's joy in repetition

Feel free to share ur thoughts on this one. I love playing this loud anywhere and dancing 2 it. cool

I loved the live version he did with the twins not 2 long back. Maybe he'll bring this back into rotation!wink

absolute classic

the It Aint Over version is a masterpiece

Fuck the funk - it's time to ditch the worn-out Vegas horns fills, pick up the geee-tar and finally ROCK THE MUTHA-FUCKER!! He hinted at this on Chaos, now it's time to step up and fully DELIVER!!
woot!

Great track, but would like it better if it stood on its own with a proper intro rather than flowing directly from the end of We Can Funk (like on the bootlegged, earlier versions)

yes Love it! Showcases so much of Prince's essence. Great song - just happened to be on a horrible project.

thumbs up!

I always thought the GB version was a good but not great song. But when I heard it at the o2 in 2007 it blew me away.

One of the best songs he ever did, it deserves a version with the lone intro.

without a doubt one of his best songs of the first half of the 90s, and the biggest classic of Graffiti Bridge.

One of the best & most exotic melodies/rhythms he has ever written...
