ok .. i love these podcasts .. but ronnie talk to russia as the best song on the record? comparing it to zappa? what zappa? why does it hurt when i pee zappa? my gawd! perhaps it is time for a new panel .. are u seriously hyping this song?

paleeze .. listen to something other than prince for a long long while to restore your ability to detect complete crap .. its not fun .. its not musical .. its not good .. grrr .. some songs are debatable .. this one is not .. no its not rockabilly punk .. what black flag, bad brains? .. are u seriously comparing ronnie to such classic bands .. this is prince fanaticism at its worst .. some serious prince denial going on here trying to justify such pure pure shit .. let me stir the pot more .. i bet ronnie was not a collaboration with anyone else from his band or community, unlike say "dirty mind" or "do me baby". same prince who gives us shit like no more candy 4 u .. if prince invented a new rockabilly punk genre than it was for the worse .. but again .. listen to some other music .. the CRAMPS are rockabilly punk .. ronnie is more like a bad and annoying nursury rhyme .. or somekind of kindergarden tune like ring around the rosie .. come on peach and black .. u gotta check urself before u loose all your respectability

i don't mind annie christian but comparing it to a day in the life

and did u just say u skip do me baby

omg .. i just don't know what to say anymore .. prince aholics drinkin miller lite thinking its guiness cuz they cant tell the difference anymore

annie christian .. the crappy drum machine always annoyed me on this song , super cheap and lazy .. otherwise its ok .. good lyrics cool noises .. i would say this was the precurser to something in the water, but not so much computer blue

peach and black black and peach until ur justified

i don't think i can sit thru ur review of jack u off .. another favorite? if prince had his own cartoon like jackson five did .. this song would be a great saturday morning cartoon song .. except that the lyrics are about as funny as a beavis and butthead joke .. huh huh .. blasphemy on a prince record tho .. he desecrated himself with this shit

Had me laughing at "I was the one who wrote I'm so cold!"

MC, I thought the Montreux DVDs were your ultimate fantasy (after Sydney Opera House show of course), will they be getting a review?

ur right i'm sorry .. i really love these podcasts .. just had to chime in on this one as i was listening .. probably seems out of context if ur not listening to them review "ronnie talk to russia", "annie christian" and "jack u off" while reading it. maybe a wee little bit negative too .. i still can't understand a reviewer that would skip "do me baby" and praise "ronnie talk to russia" .. i mean it's "do me baby" .. a song that is right up there with "if eye was your girlfriend" and "purple rain" .. its classic ..

Haha. It's OK. You're free to have an opinion. It was only Captain who said he skips "Do Me Baby" and considers "RT2R" his favourite. He has a (shall we say) "unique" ear, but we love him for it lol

I'm not necessarily going to praise "Ronnie, Talk to Russia" but I have always felt that "Do Me, Baby" is vastly overrated. Many others feel differently. That's ok but I think it is important to remember that everyone has their own opinion and they are all valid. Earlier you referred to "No More Candy 4 U" as "shit." Well, I can tell you that at least one person (me) really enjoys that song. For me it is probably the best song on MPLSoUND. I'm not telling you not to speak up and offer your opinions and I think this place would be dreadfully dull if we all agreed on everything all of the time but maybe try to be a bit more even-handed with your criticisms.

falloff at the idea of the P&B guys doing a "Prince Fashion Review" show, talking about what he's wearing, his latest hair style, how sexy he is, etc...

*slightly miffed though at the implication that Prince's female fans can't simply appreciate a podcast solely dedicated to Prince's music.

Spent the evening listening to the podcast, before putting my remastered vinyl copy on for a spin before bed.

Nice way to celebrate 30years cool

Congrats on another great podcast. As usual, it gave me lots more to listen out for music

Thanks of course to Prince for this terrific album, still bringing joy to so many (public and private, one would imagine...) after all these years.

They're very kind towards Controversy but by the end you get a sex change so swings and roundabouts.

I have to admit it, I was never that big on the title track. There are so many more songs I like more, but it's pretty obvious that the song is super funky--obviously it is that cold funk, but it really does groove.

All you others say Hell Yea!! woot!

Hard to believe it's been 30 years.

Seems like only yesterday my girlfriend (now my wife) stole the above poster from out of a vinyl record at Target. I was aghast. But I guess her stepdad ripped hers off her wall and she needed a new one. She could have just asked for mine.

Seeing how conservative and harmless Prince has become I find it amusing that he was once considered "dangerous."

Haha. Yeah, I can't remember who said that (Captain or MC I think?), but the more I think about it I reckon that would be a cool way of doing it live - kind of like the "What are you gonna do? What are you gonna do... Ms. Rhonda?", "What are you gonna do... Renato?!" section from the Montreux 2009 show.

Sing "________ talk to ________ before it's too late" as a chorus and then let those two have a mini solo duel!
