He can't write poetry like that anymore.




Yes, he can. Why wouldn't he be able to?


Talent never dies. But you have to work on it. And he doesn't seem to work too hard on his lyrics anymore. And with a funk jam like this, that's fine. Although James Brown knew how to combine funk jams with deep lyrics.



THIS. His lyrics have been super lazy for years. When was the last time he wrote great lyrics? Poetry that could match SOTT or Moonbeam Levels or In a Large Room With No Light? Even Wasted Kisses? His recent lyrics are very shoddy. Sure, maybe I shouldn't have said he "can't" write good lyrics anymore. But where's the evidence that he CAN?!

I love the song but the lyrics aren't all that great. They're far from terrible. No Life o' the Party or Baltimore. But they're definitely not top tier Prince lyrics in my opinion. Again, I love the song.

Reflection might come close, but again not top tier.

Yeah. I danced to it. It's hard to get into it because I wanted things a certain way and no one seemed to listen except for one girl there who tried her best, and in my opinion did better than the rest..

Students were ahead of it and worse in ways from the last two years that I was there...

I'm not going to go too deep into it because I need to stay in a positive mood, but basically they had 3 old judges who didn't seem to like Prince music that much.. (no disrespect to old people, but these were literally seniors who did this and in my opinion had no business doing this because they should've had the audience vote.)

Besides all that stress, I had a good time hanging out with my friends backstage. So overall, it was fun.

Way Back Home is good. Breakdown is good. He still has it. It's just hard to find between all the 13-in-a-dozen (that's a Dutch expression) tunes he has been doing for so long. So if Prince wants to do another funk jam, that's fine. I like what I've heared so far. But Prince the songwriter... I only hear him every once in a while...

Yeah, I don't mind decent (at best) lyrics when it comes to the straight funk jams. I mean, Kiss had stupid lyrics too.

I wondered if Prince would come out with something like this. It has to have caught his attention just how massively successful "Uptown Funk" has been, which copies his 80s sound so much that my son thought it was Prince the first time he heard it.

[Edited 5/27/15 13:00pm]

You know, its funny to me when people say that about Uptown Funk because it sounds ALOT more like various other 80's funk bands more than Prince to me. It has a small hint of The Time in it but sounds NOTHING like Prince, in musical composition or lyrics.

The horns are straight from prince, the time was all prince except for the vocals, the whole concept of uptown/mineapolis funk is prince.

Regarding, "This party's goin' ham", ham could also refer to "hamming for the camera", which would be more in keeping with the lyrics "just stare".

Not to mention it's an acronym that was made popular in 2011 and no one in their right mind still uses it.

Are you saying that it is no longer phat to say HAM? (Just in case, when I was at Bob Evans today and the waitress asked what side dish I wanted with my eggs and toast, I said "the flat pig meat that isn't bacon or sausage"...)

The fact that people compared this to We Get's Up says it all...

There is something that reminds of something in We Gets Up. I don't think anyone said the 2 sound alike. Stop trying to find any bloody excuse to shit on everything Prince does, for fuck's sake!

Weee...

I wonder if Prince is referring to his old self (Dirty Mind era-Prince) when he says "We use to go on stage in a underwear".

Oh look, yet another instantly forgettable bland pop funk track that features him boasting. Because we don't yet have enough of that tripe yet, apparently.

.

Note how he's back to predictable party crap now he's had all the promo he could wrangle from Baltimore.

Note you still have these two dimensional opinions.

Dimension one: Prince is desperate for publicity.

Dimension two: Prince just wants to make as much as money as he can.

He may have recorded many of the songs well before Baltimore, so where do you get the sequence 1) now that he had all the promo Baltmore 2) he's doing party music?

You heard snippets so you don't know if it's all "party music" and most of the album was likely recorded before Baltimore, so this is just you seeing things the way you want to see them, nothing more.

Cool beat, and I like the vocal delivery. Lyrics are so so, but I'll withhold judgment until he releases the full song -- lyrics could go in interesting directions, hard to tell based on snippets.

The best I can hope for is that they're not as stupid as, say, Baltimore. I'll take generic party boasting over Baltimore any day. Yeah, real clash of the Titans, right? I like the deep, organic funk sound of these snippets. It's better than The X's Face. No chimp sounds at least. But possibly an explosion. I'll take explosions over chimps any day.

.

there is still time, there could be chimps, death lazers, duck voices and ticking clocks all over it! The explosion goes without saying, so does everything slowing down to a halt.
