cool

Me likes. Cool reverse guitar licks throughout. 5 minute plus jam!

Think if Black Sweat and Willing and Able had a baby by way of 20Ten.

totally love it, it really is a big step back in the right direction and if it were on 20Ten regular edition it would be a standout. Well done Mr. P, knew u still had it!!!

How are we supposed to bootleg it when the radio station keeps dropping their call letters in throughout the song? lol

there is no willing and able in this song

Its a cool little tune with a catchy chorus and some nice guitar riffs, but nothing special. probably made in a day and then forgotten already.

an early attempt at the lyrics:

rich friends

yeah, oooh,

money money,

rich friends

who needs money, when u got rich friends?

who needs a bank account, if the bank won't lend?

who needs a daydream, if everything is sin?

who, who, who needs money when u got rich friends?

who, ow, who who

who needs money?

rich friends

oh, who who, get on

rich friends

who needs a job, when u can open up a church?

u can't buy happiness but u can pay for the search

forgotten the cause of all ur pain

ain't nothing worse than cryin' the blues in a private plane

(private plane)

tell me who, who,

who needs money when u got rich friends?

who who, oh, who who, who needs money?

rich friends

oh, who who, rich friends

who needs cash when u can get a plastic card?

oh, don't worry about 2morrow y'all (2morrow y'all)

i said, it's much 2 hard (much 2 hard)

let's all charge the fisherman with the fat bottom line

drop it in the water, hook a fish every time

people who, who who, oh

who needs money when u got rich friends?

who needs money when u got rich friends?

who who, money money, rich friends

spend another holiday

playin' in spain

flip it on2 ebay

the carpet stain

just like the windows in the church

that u bought in ur name

i guess another holy man, oh,

he died in vain

yes he did y'all

who, tell me who,

who needs money when u got rich friends

tell me, tell me, tell me

tell me, tell me, tell me

who needs money when u got rich friends

bank account, (money money)

keep dreaming

who needs money when u got rich friends

rich friends

rich friends,

oooh

money money

rich friends

etc etc etc

and true love lives on lollipops and crisps

After 2 listens i think it's ok, nothing special. Wouldn't stand out on 20ten, in fact it's not as good as any of the first 6 songs.

It's an inferior Feel Better Feel Good Feel Wonderful.

well ok, it's not that special or nothing but it sounds healthy and it has interesting moments and

ideas. plus it kinda fits the 20Ten mood/sound and that album could do with a few extra tracks,

especially some uptempo stuff near the end.

aaaaaaanywho. interesting to see a 'deluxe' edition to one of his albums. apart from Rave In2,

i don't think he's ever done one, has he? wondering what it's going to be like. if any album was

in need of being fleshed out it was 20Ten since it feels like an EP.

Well, the full version is definitely better than the 20 second clip. I enjoy the backing vocalists and the interplay between all the parts. It seems to be another of Prince's "amorphous" structured songs...which sometimes works, and sometimes doesn't....I'll have to give it more listens to see how it stacks up against the rest of 20ten, but I will say it's better than Everybody Loves Me.

=0P

Wow, I got stickied. lol. I feel special today. I got stickied last night too, but that's another story!

I think the song is so-so. Not great, not horrible. Pretty much like a lot of stuff he's been putting out since 2003 or so. Which is still tons better than 1997 to 2003!

Is it me, or has Prince finally figured out how to slow down piracy and make you anticipate a new album? The site must be being hit pretty hard, I'm having to hear it in bits and pieces.
