It didn't make the cut?

Is it jus me, but I was listening 2 "All My Dreams" and it sounds so much like a track that it should've been on the Parade Album. 2 other songs that has that sound 2 is "Movie Star" and "Splash". I listened 2 Parade 2day and then played these songs 2 and they flow with the album. Does anyone kno a reason y the songs didn't make the cut?....I'm truly sorry if this was already asked. cool

All my dreams was supposed to be released on Dream Factory but not on Sign 'O' the Times because The Revolution broke up. Just as the case with a lot of songs that included them.

It was considered for both Parade and Dream Factory. I don't think the reasons behind its withdrawal have ever been documented.

I thought 'Movie Star' was written for Morris Day(The Time) as opposed to being for a Prince album. Anyone know for sure?

When eye go 2 a Prince concert or related event it's all heart up in the house but when eye log onto this site and the miasma of bitchiness is completely overwhelming!

I can see why it was removed from Parade, I think it fits much better on Dream Factory. And again can see why it wasn't one of the tracks carried over to CB/SOTT (besides having W&L prominently on it), it doesn't fit that either.

It's in the liner notes for Crystal Ball, but who knows how accurate those are. Since Morris wasn't around then, I always took it mean he was coming from the same mindset as the Time stuff - the Movie Star character is like Morris/Jamie Starr. At the most I'd guess he could've thought at one point "I'll put this in the bank for Morris down the road."

Agree with all of this.
