Such a classic, sexy Prince song music When was the last time he sung it? Was it retired long ago lol when the reformed, mature Prince emerged?

I love it, it's one of my favorite from 1999 and one of my favorite Prince tracks period.

Great video too.

According to http://www.princevault.co.../Automatic it was played live right up to 2004.

I love the song, but listening to it again and again is not going to promise me an eternal life in Heaven, and neither is watching eye candy.razz

It's an uphill climb to the finish line.

Theres a version on (I think) a soudcheck from the ONA tour where he does a medley of Automatic & Shake. Great stuff.

I always thought he could make a pretty cool E.P, mainly him at the piano, same chords, singing Automatic, Shake & People Without, with stabs of Madhouse 6 thrown in for good measure smile

blah blah blah

Oh the video, when he turns around, heart heart heart that. The sexy sneer, the hat, hair, gloves, short jacket, the hip swivel, everything is just so right with it. This is my favorite era.

I never understood what happened at the end of the video (did he die?) but automatic is my 3rd favorite prince song biggrin
Why does there have to be a soundcheck? I don't have a songcheck. You don't have a clothescheck.

Still one of his best 'jams' ever and also so very typical of his music. Its for me the song that probably best 'describes' his early sound (his sound unto and including 1984) / The Minneapolis sound and probably one of his most influential songs, soundwise: a mixture of electronical influences (Kraftwerk, Gary Numan), Linn-drum driven funkbeats, sound-effects, distorted vocals and some rock-guitar to make it sound extra sleazy.

I think some people dont like it, because they think its too long.. but to me that it makes it work so well.. the length and the combination of the sounds gives it a certain hypnotic quality that always draws me into it.

Fuckin' long, fuckin' overrated, fuckin' bland, too fuckin' slow

this song left out SUPERIOR and kick-ass jams like Lust U Always, Purple Music, Chocolate, or All Day All Night, if I'm not mistaken

I'm glad Automatic NEVER was a live staple...
