Come Home

Isn't this one of Prince's best love songs? Especially a line like:
U livin in your world, me dying in mine...
says so much about a love affair gone wrong.
Does anybody have else like this one? Or have some background info on this tune?

The whole album is lovely, even the non-Prince tracks fit in perfectly. It's true that it's nice when P uses his protégés material live, something he tends to do more and more often.

Shelby is his new Rosie Gaines, etc that power house vocal he likes..she brings goid energy!
The energy in this field's been known to flicker lights, aight

Asong with no name, acapella moans and a bridge of silence

Undeterred nevertheless a masterpiece on butterscotch thighs

Turn off the lights, turn off the lights

It's time for Mr Go

My favorite song from this record. I love how the bass guitar is so up front on this track.

I believe this was one of the tracks that Marc Stakenburg played in the same episode of his evening radio show on Dutch radio 3, in perhaps early '89, that showcased some songs of the Trojan Horse b00tl3g.

Maybe ask Shelby on failbook? (Shelby: if your're reading this, please hint mr Prince; you can do it, I've heard that from the soundboard lol )

I do think your remark about the arrangement is important here. They should do the song justice.
