Raspberry Beret 1985 -Prince & the Revolution

Around the World in a Day 4.22.1985 © 1985 Paisley Park


chapter 6 Hangover p74 Possessed

...he now opened himself more to genuine exchange of ideas.

Your favorite live performance?

Recognized characters in the video?

Video facts?

instruments used?

musicians featured?

song involvement?

video matching album characters...

She wore a
Raspberry beret
The kind u find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
And if it was warm she wouldnt wear much more

I believe this is Prince's best video ever,

visually stimulating, and definately represents Paisley Park

Still on a Purple Rain high

I remember when this came out, we were still in the throes of Purple Rain(was the tour done yet?) Raspberry Beret got a lot of air play were I lived. The video was a real piece of art versus Prince's previous videos visually.

And it's interesting how the cartoon section of the videos barn scene is from the deleted scenes from Purple Rain where the Kid & Apollonia are on the bike and end up at a barn and have sex. It was supposed to be a very sexually explicit scene.

Only God, who makes a cameo appearance, knows when he had time to lay down the tracks.

Where Prince has taken the sweat and other bodily fluids out of his lyrics, he's also reformulated the music.

Raspberry Beret" is a sweetly wistful seduction song, -

For all I know, Around the World in a Day may represent the afterglow following the commercial orgasm of Purple Rain.

Why did you make the announcement that there'd be no singles or videos from that LP, and then start issuing singles and making videos anyway?

Because I wanted this album to be listened to, judged, critiqued as a whole. It's hard to take a trip and go around the block, and stop when the trip is 400 miles. Dig?

A few hours later, Prince is kneeling in front of the VCR, showing his "Raspberry Beret" video.

He explains why he started the clip with a prolonged clearing of the throat.

"I just did it to be sick, to do something no one else would do."

He pauses and contemplates.

"I turned on MTV to see the premiere of 'Raspberry Beret' and Mark Goodman was talking to the guy who discovered the backward message on 'Darling Nikki.' They were trying to figure out what the cough meant too, and it was sort of funny."

He pauses again.

"But I'm not getting down on him for trying. I like that. I've always had little hidden messages, and I always will."

When RASPBERRY BERET became the first hit single, it zoomed to the Top Five. A wonderfully picturesque narrative, the song featured strings arranged by Lisa Coleman – reflective of the Revolution’s increased involvement in Prince’s recordings.

If he didn't do that no singles/videos nonsensical stunt, RB would've been an easy #1.

I can't remember, was the album even promoted before release or was it released out of the blue?

definately

I guess there was some kind of mild promotion, I've seen postings that looked like they were in a magazine(members posted some of theirs) but nothing extreme that I remember

This album could have been even bigger, if he promoted it more, especially because the music was such a switch, more performances and videos should have been done

I wonder did he turn down any offers of live performances at award shows that he could have featured Raspberry Beret

for Alex- here’s Pat Smear in the Raspberry Beret video by Prince. look for it on youtube and watch it. hilarious!! pat is shirtless. wearing a cape. and dancing. LOL!!!!!

Back in the day, you would go into a record store and they would have a listing of all the upcoming releases. People knew it was coming out, just no lead single like normal. Radio stations around where I live just played the tracks they wanted, and of course that was Raspberry Beret anyway. The single and video came a good month after the album was released.

Check out a cool Billboard article about the album - http://www.billboard.com/...e#/archive

, then check out May 4, 1985, it's on the first page (couldn't find a direct link) - the album was released with no single, radio wasn't sure what to do with it. Eventually Raspberry Beret came out and made it to #2, Pop Life hit #7.


The album shipped platinum, so it was definitely a success. Someone needs to make a Prince timeline so we can appreciate how quickly this all happened - it was only 10 months between Purple Rain and ATWIAD, and in those 10 months he had the number 1 movie, album, a stadium tour, 5 singles, a Time album with 2 hit singles, a Sheila E album with a hit single, and an Appolonia album with a hit single (and Dance Electric), AND the Family was just on the Horizon... all in less than a year!

So, Prince was at his popular height, the only thing that kept Raspberry Beret from #1 was Simple Minds - and that song is also a classic.

Damn - look at the Top 100 for 1985, what a great year for pop! http://en.wikipedia.org/w..._1985_(U.S.)

Jackie Swanson

In 1985, Swanson made her professional debut in the Prince video Raspberry Beret. She and Prince were friends. He wrote a song entitled Palomino Pleasure Ride for her. In 1987, Swanson made her feature debut in the opening scene of Lethal Weapon. She played Amanda Hunsaker, who falls to her death from a building onto the hood of a car. She performed this free-fall stunt from 35 feet into an airbag under the training of stuntman Dar Robinson. Lethal Weapon would be Swanson's first time working with cinematographer Steven Goldblatt. She worked with Steven Goldblatt again on Charlie Wilson's War.

In 1989, Swanson joined the cast of Cheers in the recurring role of Kelly Gaines. Her character was a pretty, wealthy, naïve, Lutheran girl, who would eventually marry Woody Boyd, played by Woody Harrelson. She continued to appear in the show until the series ended in 1993.

Dear Jackie,

Raspberry Beret" is a song by Prince and The Revolution. It was the first U.S. (and second UK) single from their 1985 album, Around the World in a Day. The sound was different from any previous Prince track, incorporating Middle Eastern finger cymbals, stringed instruments, and even a harmonica on the extended version. The song was also more in the pop vein than ever before, though the 12-inch single and video of the song feature a funky intro. Although the song was originally recorded in 1982 at Kiowa Trail Home Studio, in Spring/Summer , Prince drastically reworked it with The Revolution to give it more of an international sound. The string section was: Novi Novog on violin, Suzie Katayama and David Coleman on cello. Wendy & Lisa composed and conducted the strings on Raspberry Beret. Wendy & Lisa provided backing vocals, and the rest of the song was performed by Prince. Basic tracks for the album version were recorded in August, 1984 at Flying Cloud Drive Warehouse, Eden Prairie, MN, USA.

Label:Paisley Park – 7-28972
Released May 15, 1985
Recorded August 1984
The Warehouse, St. Louis Park, Minnesota

Yeah

I was working part time in a five-and-dime
My boss was mr. mcgee
He told me several times that he didn't like my kind
Cause I was a bit 2 leisurely

Seems that I was busy doing something close 2 nothing
But different than the day before
That's when I saw her, ooh, I saw her
She walked in through the out door, out door

She wore a
Raspberry beret
The kind u find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
And if it was warm she wouldn't wear much more
Raspberry beret
I think I love her

Built like she was
She had the nerve 2 ask me
If I planned 2 do her any harm

So, look here
I put her on the back of my bike
And-a we went riding
Down by old man johnsons farm

I said now, overcast days never turned me on
But something about the clouds and her mixed

She wasn't 2 bright
But I could tell when she kissed me
She knew how 2 get her kicks

She wore a
Raspberry beret
The kind u find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
And if it was warm she wouldn't wear much more
Raspberry beret
I think I love her

The rain sounds so cool when it hits the barn roof
And the horses wonder who u are
Thunder drowns out what the lightning sees
U feel like a movie star

Listen
They say the first time aint the greatest
But I tell ya
If I had the chance 2 do it all again

I wouldn't change a stroke
Cause baby Im the most
With a girl as fine as she was then

(raspberry beret)
The kind u find (the kind u find)
The kind u find (in a second hand store)
Oh no no
(raspberry beret)
(and if it was warm)
Where have all the raspberry women gone? (she wouldn't wear much more)
Yeah (raspberry beret)

I think i... I think i... I think I love her

(raspberry beret)
No no no
No no no (the kind u find)
(in a second hand store)
(raspberry beret)
Tell me
Where have all the raspberry women gone? (and if it was warm she)
(wouldnt wear much more)
(raspberry beret)
I think I love...

uptown #37 spring of 1999. This is an article written by David J. Magdziarz

Doug Henders was asked to create the cover art for Around the World in A day shortly before Christmas 1984. He was given a brief 15-point outline from Prince with some ideas of what he wanted graphically. "The process of creating the cover work and the rock trip (Purple Rain tour) itself were very gruelling," says Henders. "I think that's reflected in the melancholic rendering of the painting."

For some of the images, Henders snapped Polaroid photos of Revolution band members and people close to the band. Then he slightly altered the face or real-life features for the painting. "Most of the figures on the cover are characters in the songs, but I think some of the people Prince wanted are parts of himself, so they're all of a piece and somewhat autobiographical," Henders explains. "The little puppy in the picture was added simply because Princ got himself a dog while on the road."

The woman from "rasberry beret" also makes and appearance; holding an apple, she is like the modern-day Eve in Prince's hippie style paradise.

Prince then was so naughty lol Palomino Pleasure Ride

Palomino (pl-mn)is a coat color in horses, consisting of a gold coat and white mane and tail.

Due to their unusual color, palominos stand out in a show ring, and are much sought after as parade horses. They were particularly popular in movies and television during the 1940s and 1950s.

Palomino horses have a yellow or gold coat, with a white or light cream mane and tail. The shades of the body coat color range from cream to a dark gold.

Pleasure (plzhr) To give pleasure or enjoyment to; gratify:

4. Sensual gratification or indulgence.
Ride (rd) ________
