2. SHUT THIS DOWN HITnRUN phase one

-starting 2:12 in, GENIUS!

This song starts for me at 2:12 when it switches to that funky bass and the Slave drums in the background, probably the most amazing 30 seconds on the album imo.

I agree that bass part is the best part of this album. It reminds me of the bass part in the La, La, La, He, He, He extended 12" version. I wish that bass part was at least another minute long. He shut it down on this track fo' sho. I hope this becomes part of the live show.

I thought he said "and I told you I was gonna buy a horse or two!"

I thought he said "and I told you I was gonna buy a horse or two!"

That is EXACTLY what I heard, but knew it could not be correct.

Yes folks, that is definitely him, it reminds me of a cross between Cloreen Baconskin voice, and the voice he used when he dressed up as an old man to present the GQ Award to Chris Rock back in the late 90's.

This is one of the better songs on it. It jams. Love his aggressive vocal

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

Oh lighten up already, it's a party song and people think some of it is expertly done.

You're under no obligation to shake your body if you're too busy safeguarding "Genius" from other speakers of the English language.

HnR isn't my favorite Prince album (to say the least) but I really like this song. It's the only song that has grown on me. I have no illusion that the song is deep or "genius" or even innovative. But I think it's funky and fun as hell to listen to.

The lyrics in the booklet include an extra verse and chorus that have been edited out for inclusion on HITNRUN. I asked Prince3EG twitter what happened there, he replied "4thcoming remix". Guess we'll need to wait and see...

It's grown on me, but the lyrics are really clumsy & don't fit the flow of the song in places.
Particularly 'Just keep your eyes on me if U wanna get pleased' & 'I'm gonna get U where U never get got..'

Those lines just about spoil the whole thing for me. Just about.

It's a truly infectious song -- somehow it reminds me of Hot Thing because of the rapid-fire bass.

This track gets people dancing from my honey somehow busting some moves to that song in the living room (that never happened before).

My Name Is Prince meets Rebirth Of The Flesh? Something in there reminds me of the latter song...
