the New P♥wer of L♥vesexy

Rain is wet and sugar is sweet
Clap your hands and stomp your feet
Everybody, everybody knows
When Love calls, U gotta go

Welcome 2 the New Power Generation
The reason why my voice is so clear
Is there's no smack in my brain

Spooky Electric must die. Die in the hearts of all who
want love. Die in the hearts of men who want change.
Die in the bodies of women who want babies that will grow up
with a New Power Soul.

L♥ve Life, L♥vesexy -- the feeling
u get when u fall in love, not with a girl or boy but with the
heavens above. L♥vesexy -- endorphin.

A rebirth, a new kind of wildness, introduction of an experimental sound called New Power, the shadow of Spooky Electric, muses Anna Fantastic & Ingrid Chavez

the beginning of Prince's cloistered Paisley Park existence.

But something had changed. Prince believed that he had experienced a spiritual and moral epiphany, and that Chavez, serving as a guide, had shown him the way to greater connection with God and other people. The Black Album, he decided, represented the anger and licentiousness that he must leave behind. After casting about for months for a way to truly put the Revolution era behind him, he had found one.

Having shelved the Black Album, Prince immediately threw himself into the recording of his next LP, Lovesexy, which he conceived as a document of his epiphany.

...

Moreover, very few of Prince's associates related to the lyrical messages, and also wondered why Ingred Chavez, who seemed to some a bit odd, was playing such a huge role. When band members seemed confused by the lyrics of the title track, he rerecorded it to make the meaning ring out more clearly. It still didn't work. "I did not understand what the term 'lovesexy' was supposed to mean," Eric Leeds said. "People weren't getting it."

Put your love down
Talk 2 me lover, come and tell me what U taste
Didn't your mama tell U life is 2 good 2 waste?
Did she tell U L♥vesexy was the glam of them all?
U can hang, U can trip on it, U surely won't fall
No side effects, the feeling last 4ever
Straight up, it tastes good, it makes U feel clever
U kiss your enemies like U know U should
And then U jerk your body like a horny pony would
U jerk your body like a horny pony would
Now run and tell your mama about that!

Neither did I, but I did once I read the lyrics.

On Second Thought

Prince - LoveSexy


for better or worse, we here at Stylus, in all of our autocratic consumer-crit greed, are slaves to timeliness. A record over six months old is often discarded, deemed too old for publication, a relic in the internet age. That's why each week at Stylus, one writer takes a look at an album with the benefit of time. Whether it has been unjustly ignored, unfairly lauded, or misunderstood in some fundamental way, we aim with On Second Thought to provide a fresh look at albums that need it.

"The reason why my voice is so clear is because there’s no smack in my brain.”

So Prince begins on “Eye No” (picture an eye symbol rather than the word—a play on “I know”). Perhaps there was no smack in Prince’s brain, but LoveSexy isn’t the result of a totally together mind...often it’s the work of genius, especially Prince genius. Not only is LoveSexy one of the most unusual pop albums ever recorded, it had an even more unusual genesis.

...

LoveSexy is sublime—a work of utter beauty—Prince’s most distinct and fluid statement. The fact that the CD has the album all on one track is frustrating at times, but one has to get a kick out of Prince’s sentiment: This was the closest the Purple One ever came to a concept album and he was clearly passionate about listeners taking it in as one giant whole. As opposed to the style hopping of Sign Of The Times or the simply down-&-dirty funk of The Black Album, LoveSexy can only be described as LoveSexy. It’s LoveSexy music; Prince music in the purest and least compromising sense. It’s pretty funky—and sexy—but it’s also rocking and spiritual—spiritual in the best way possible: euphoric not pious. Prince proved himself a master of the beat and hook on previous albums, but here he reaches another level by enriching his grooves with stronger and more intricate harmonies. More than any other Prince album, LoveSexy is a vocal playground and there’s true joy in the singing. For an artist who had already broken many clichés, LoveSexy was the consummation of everything Prince was suggesting in the 1980s. Yes—it’s indulgent, but never in a boring or contrived manner; it’s always engaging; always honest. I could get on the traditional tip and attempt to describe each track, but hey—there’s only one track! One track. One LoveSexy. One Prince. And this is his Number One album in my book.

I was scared of the idea back then of Prince being 'born again' I didn't know what that meant still feeling the Purple Rain 2 Wearing Something Peach Prince

I loved getting lost in the sound of the album and I think I got it, still can't put it in words, but it felt like Purple Rain & Parade, just that whole previous periods feeling and I got it.

Prince's resurrection
Prince opens his Lovesexy '88 Tour in Paris and proves he can still rock hard. But is His Purple Highness hearing the call of a higher consciousness?

BY DAVID WILD

"I DIG YOU, and you dig me," Prince told a cheering crowd of 17,000 Parisians at the Palais Omnisport Bercy toward the end of one of the extraordinary shows that opened his Lovesexy '88 Tour. "And together we'll dig him to death. Thank you, Jesus." Pointing his guitar meaningfully toward the heavens, or at least toward the painted clouds that hung overhead, Prince then ripped into "Purple Rain," offering one of his most divinely inspired solos of the evening.

As the shows went on, Prince became increasingly direct about his intentions. "The first half, I gave it to you because you were expecting it," he said during the third night in Paris. "The second half is what it's all about. It's about how we all dig each other and him."

ROLLING STONE, AUGUST 25TH, 1988

The album was disturbing. I got rid if my copy, but had to go buy another after trying to stay away. It's kind of silly now, but at the time it shook my understanding of God & spirituality. I didn't feel that spooked by the Black Album when I eventually heard it. I felt like it was saying that sex could lead to damnation or losing one's soul. I had a similiar reaction to Shockadelica, and maybe Scarlet Pussy. Scary stuff to a 19yr old.
"So fierce U look 2night, the brightest star pales 2 Ur sex..."

Bought a different pair of headphones 2XL and I set up a Lovesexy playlist

the music is hitting hard, some very good sounds swirling around in your head

eyeNo

Escape (B side)

Glam Slam

Anna Stesia

Empty Room (outtake)

Dance On

Lovesexy

the Line (outtake)

When 2 R in Love

Pink Cashmere *

Scarlet Pussy (extended B side)

I Wish U Heaven

God is Alive (outtake)

Positivity

Still Would Stand All Time (outtake)

We Got the Power (outtake)

Girl Power (outtake featuring Sheila E)

4 a minute I felt Scarlet Pussy sounded like something from SOTT era.

But then I rethought it and felt La La La He He Hee sounds like something that could go with

Scarlet Pussy and mesh well with Lovesexy music.

I need to mix in some Madhouse 16 now to get the full feel

some considerations: R U Legal Yet? Dance With the Devil, Electic Chair, the Future

Although not 1 of my favorites. I love the positivity of this album. I love the over the top style, that also came w/ it. It was almost an introduction to a side of Prince, I'd never seen before.

I still cant believe ppl were shocked by the album cover. Prince has done so many wild, and well sexually driven things. that you would think this wouldnt even be a BIG deal. I dont think this was sexually driven though, i think he just wanted to be open.

btw he has pretty hand writing

Yeah, the cover is actually not shocking. There's nothing sexual about the picture. It's a naked man....that's it.

Maybe it's a US thing. Lovesexy was very big in Holland and I can't remember anybody saying somthing negative about the cover.

Cause LOVESEXY IS THE ONE!!!! Till my day is done Hundalasiliah!!!!! smile It took me a while to realize this, but Lovesexy just defines why I'm a Prince fan. For someone to make such an album that makes no sense, yet comes together, is just Glam Slam!!!

I love the fashion! yes

yes yes

yes yes yes

This era is my favorite, because I don't know how it manages to make Prince 'Horny' for the heavens above, but it succeds. The 'Spooky Electric' makes the whole show dive into pure lust. IN LUST you will suffer, but in LOVE you will grow! It's so beautiful and strong. It leaves me feeling positive. EVERYtime I listen to it, I am assured HEAVEN, PEACE, AND POSITIVITY!

It's GLAM SLAM! I can't stop saying... yes eye kNOw! smile

at the time that is the phrase I was hearing a lot about Prince from media, so the term was confusing to me. the Black Album was his Funk Bible and Lovesexy was his Gospel

Lovesexy remains a favorite among die hard fans. it is in my eyes his most personal and spiritual

releases till this date. I used to spend my whole work day bumpin this album on repeat.

But in the eyes of popular culture at that time it was Prince's lowest selling album up to that date

since his first release "For you". it only sold 175,000 units

many things could have hindered its markebility:

* releasing it as only 1 continuous track so the listener could hear the album as a whole entity.

but this basicaly alienated the casual listener.

* Not initially putting out any promos or videos for the album just to create a air of mystery.

* not touring the USA first which would have boosted the sales at home

* The album cover brought controversy and forced some stores to hide it

behind the counter or not carry it at all.

some people say this is the turning point for prince which started a decline in his artistic output.

but i greatly disagree. Lovesexy is a testament to Prince's most truthfull and honest release.

Annastesia is one of my fav songs ever. alphabet st. is a for sure classis. dance on is a great follow up to sign o the times. all and all who really cares about what the "market" has to say or has not to say about this album. true Prince fans indeed know how trully artistic and eye opening LOVESEXY really is.
