the original 1981 version of Feel U Up definately has that 1999 era sound.

OUTTAKE

Feel U Up
This outtake was recorded toward the end of 1981 and was taped in sequence with "Irresistible Bitch". Both songs were later re-recorded. The lyrics are very similar to to the released song although the vocals seem to have been recorded at a low level. "Feel U Up" was re-recorded in 1986 for the shelved Camille album and finally released in 1989 as the B-side to "Partyman".

Feel U Up

I been diggin' U 4 such a long time
But U don't even know that I'm alive
Something 'bout the way U walk just really blows my mind
I'm sorry but I'm sick of all this jive, come on

CHORUS:
Let me touch your body, baby
Let me feel U up
C'mon girl, (Feel U up) let me feel U up (Huh!)
Let me touch your body, baby
Let me feel U up
C'mon girl, (Feel U up) let me feel U up (Huh!)

Tell me what 2 do, U really got me hot
I'm sweatin' girl and it's all because of U
I don't want your credit cards or anything U got
Feel U up is all I wanna do

CHORUS

I ain't looking 4 a one night stand
I only wanna feel U up
I don't really wanna be your man
I only wanna feel U up
Physical attraction, babe
Is what it's all about
Hot and cold reaction
Feel U up - turn U out!

CHORUS

Uh, what's the verdict? I don't like suspense
How can U resist my burning touch?
Somethin' 'bout your body, baby really turns me on
I never wanted anything so much

CHORUS {x2}

I ain't looking 4 a one night stand
I only wanna feel U up
I don't really wanna be your man
I only wanna feel U up
Physical attraction, babe
Is what it's all about
Hot and cold reaction
Feel U up - turn U out!

[U're welcome] {x2}
C'mon baby, c'mon, let me feel U up, huh!
[U're welcome] {repeated}

(Feel U up) {repeated in BG}

I got a cheap little toy that will make your body move
I got the jam, baby, if U got the groove, turn it up!

Come on, now!
Feel U up

[Come here, sit your ass...hey!]
Listen 2 me turn it up, huh!
Everybody say it now!
Oh {repeated}

Feel U up! {x2}
Let me feel U up
Feel U up! {x2}
Listen 2 my boy feel U up

Good Lordy Lord! {x2}
Come on and turn it up

CHORUS

I ain't looking 4 a one night stand
I only wanna feel U up
I don't really wanna be your man
I only wanna feel U up, uh!

Good Lordy Lord!
(Feel U up) {x2}
I only wanna feel U up, uh!

1983 Rolling Stone 394 pt 1


Prince's Hot Rock

The secret life of America's sexiest one-man band

"Good Evening, this is your pilot, Prince, speaking" comes out of the loudspeakers, all softness and breath, full of welcome. It's a flight you may not have taken before. Brace yourself, he ought to say. This is "International Lover," something the globe-conquering Prince claims to be. And this is his live act, which takes place on a grand, two-tiered stage hung with gigantic Venetian blinds. In high-heeled boots, a flouncy ruffled blouse and a purple quasi-Edwardian suit, Prince begins to climb to the higher level, taking long strides that end in a hip-locking sway, a Rita Hayworth sort of walk. "You are flying aboard the Seduction 747," he rasps. "To activate the flow of excitement, extinguish all clothing materials." Standing alone on the upper riser, Prince simply points a finger, and -- you imagine this happens every time Prince extends his long index finger -- a brass bed materializes. Stripping off his jacket, his shirt, unbuckling his belt so that a long strap hangs between his legs, Prince climbs onto the mattress and begins to undulate over the bed. "We are now making our final approach to satisfaction. Please bring your lips, your arms, your hips into the up and locked position for landing," he says, panting, and lets out a piercing scream that seems to announce the sudden fall from the sky of the flight of Seduction 747 -- and Prince and the bed disappear.

All cocky, teasing talk about sex, that's Prince. Forget Mr. Look So Good; meet the original Mr. Big Stuff. He's afraid of nothing onstage: ready to take on all the desires of a stadium full of his lusty fans, ready to marry funky black dance music and punky white rock music after their stormy separation through the Seventies, ready to sell his Sex Can Save Us message to anybody who'll give his falsetto a listen. Nor does anything scare him when he's at home alone, composing.

Out comes a paean to incest called "Sister," a song called "Head" about a bride who meets Prince on her way to be wed and says, "I must confess, I wanna get undressed and go to bed," and a song called "Jack U Off." He even advised the president, "Ronnie Talk to Russia." So bold that half of his material is radio-censored, Prince is wailing, "Guess I should have closed my eyes when you drove me to the place where your horses run free/Cuz I felt a little ill when I saw all the pictures of the jockeys that were there before me" (in "Little Red Corvette"), while Lionel Richie is everywhere on the radio with "Truly, I love you truly."

His music, a technofunk and rock blend that many have started to call "the Minneapolis sound" because of the way the Minnesota native's influence is spreading, is the freshest thing around. So Kraftwerk made The Man Machine? This is the Man Sex Machine. He usually plays every instrument on his albums, even sings his own backup most of the time. His upper register can give you goose flesh when he's singing gospel style, and he can turn around and hiccup his way through rockabilly like a perfect descendant of Elvis. There just don't seem to be any bounds to Prince's nerve or talent -- each album is better than the last (he's made five), each stage show more outrageous.

A tour begun in November of last year had grossed almost $7 million before the end of March. Prince's new double album, 1999, has sold almost 750,000 copies, with its hottest single, "Little Red Corvette," closing in on the Top Twenty on Billboard's Hot 100 chart. And two groups he helped form made the black chart's Top Ten this winter: Vanity 6, a coquettish trio that performs in lingerie and whose "Nasty Girls" was a disco smash, and the Time, the tightest, funkiest live band in America.

Prince, just twenty-two, is the father of it all. But just try checking out the lineage. There isn't just a private side to Prince, there's an almost mysterious aspect. While the art of self-promotion has never been alien to rock & roll, it seems only to frustrate Prince. He was fairly outspoken until last fall, when, after his first interview to promote 1999, he walked out of the room and announced that he would never talk to the press again. "He's afraid he might say something wrong or say too much," says a former aide-de-camp.

When he did talk, he often contradicted himself. Rumors started to spread, and now his silence feeds them. Is Prince his real name? Is he black or white, straight or gay (questions he himself raised on his 1981 hit-cum-Lord's Prayer recitation, "Controversy")? Is he the Jamie Starr who produced albums by the Time and Vanity 6? Is he a shy little Prince or a despotic king?

"Prince controls the whole scene in Minneapolis," says a local musician who has worked with him. Others who've lived with him or worked alongside him say he loves to surround himself with an air of mystery, to create false identities to tangle the clues that lead to him. Cutting off all but a few close friends, Prince tends to hole up at his huge home, with its modern basement studio, on a lake twenty miles west of Minneapolis. One member of his band says he's had just one personal conversation with Prince in all the years he's known him. "He's a real 'to himself' kind of person," says Morris Day, the Time's frontman and a longtime friend.

"He doesn't like to talk," says Vanity, the awesomely beautiful leader of Vanity 6, who accompanied Prince to the Grammys in February.

"Sir Highness," says another friend, "has a way of secluding himself."

7 LITTLE RED CORVETTE (4:55)
Produced, Arranged, Composed and Performed by Prince
With Lisa and Dez: co-lead vocals
Dez: guitar solos
Recorded and Mixed in Uptown and Sunset Sound by Peggy McCreary
2nd Engineer: Don Batts

Published by Controversy Music, administered by WB Music Corp. ASCAP
From 1999

While 1999 didn’t explode up the charts, it had a healthy run and what it lacked in impact, it more than made up for with endurance. As the album reached the streets, Warner didn’t feel the need for a second single until February 1983, when LITTLE RED CORVETTE hit radio like a bullet.

Prince wrote the clever song while nodding off in Lisa Coleman’s pink Edsel following an exhausting all-night recording session. The lyrics came to him in pieces as he’d jot something to memory in between catnaps. Given the opening line – I guess I should have known by the way you parked your car sideways that it wouldn’t last – you almost want to put him to sleep again just to see what else he’d come up with. Reaching No. 6 on the pop charts, LITTLE RED CORVETTE was easily his biggest hit to date – in fact, his first significant run on pop radio since I WANNA BE YOUR LOVER.

Inspiration: Stevie Nicks had been working on Stand Back for awhile but it wasn't complete in her mind. She and her boyfriend were driving in LA and listening to Little Red Corvette and decided that Stand Back needed a similar synthesizer track. They reached Prince that night through some connections and she played Stand Back for him over the phone. Prince came up with the synthesizer track on the spot and came down to Nick's studio to lay it down. The synthesizer in Stand Back was created by Prince after hearing the song one time and I believe he layed it down in one take. (BTW, this story comes from Nicks herself, from her VH1 Storyteller show).

Recorded Sunset Sound, 1982

Little Red Corvette

I guess I should've known by the way U parked your car sideways
That it wouldn't last
See, U're the kinda person that believes in makin' out once
Love 'em and leave 'em fast
I guess I must be dumb cuz U had a pocket full of horses
Trojan and some of them used
But it was Saturday night, I guess that makes it all right
And U say - "What have I got 2 lose?"

And honey, I say Little Red Corvette
Baby, U're much 2 fast
Little Red Corvette
U need a love that's gonna last

I guess I should've closed my eyes when U drove me 2 the place
Where your horses run free
Cuz I felt a little ill when I saw all the pictures
Of the jockeys that were there before me
Believe it or not, I started 2 worry
I wondered if I had enough class
But it was Saturday night, I guess that makes it all right
And U say - "Baby, have U got enough gas?"
Oh yeah!

Little Red Corvette
Baby, U're much 2 fast (Yes U are)
Little Red Corvette
U need 2 find a love that's gonna last

A body like yours oughta be in jail
Cuz it's on the verge of bein' obscene
Move over, baby, gimme the keys
I'm gonna try 2 tame your little red love machine

Little Red Corvette
Baby, U're much 2 fast
Little Red Corvette
Need 2 find a love that's gonna last, hey hey

Little Red Corvette
Honey, U got 2 slow down (Got 2 slow down)
Little Red Corvette
Cuz if U don't, U're gonna run your little red corvette right in the ground
(Little Red Corvette)
Right down 2 the ground (Honey, U got 2 slow down)
U, U, U got 2 slow down
(Little Red Corvette)
U're movin' much 2 fast, 2 fast
Need 2 find a love that's gonna last!

Girl, U got an ass like I never seen, ow!
And the ride...
I say the ride is so smooth, U must be a limousine

Ow!
Baby, U're much 2 fast
Little Red Corvette
U need a love, U need a love that's, uh, that's gonna last
(Little Red Corvette)
Babe, U got 2 slow down (U got 2 slow down)
Little Red Corvette
Cuz if U don't, cuz if U don't
U're gonna run your body right into the ground (Right into the ground)
Right into the ground (Right into the ground)
Right into the ground (Right into the ground)

Little Red Corvette, oh

Lol, but seriously. Easily in my top 5 favorite songs of Prince's. I like how the two stars, by what would be the crooked smile, turn the smile into a creepy little face.
