Twas like Thunder all thru the night

Promised to see Jesus in the morning light.....

Come on take your soull tonight... (last line don't know which song that comes from) but remember the tune and opening.

.

Tick tick bang though. So memorable all I know is that it is a title of a song. So I guess this one wins the prize. lol

What about the next lyrics.

"Woo Thunder - yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah,

Love no body knew just how it was born

Love first came 2 me with the radio on

Jumped up in my body with an attitude

Kissed me on the mouth and said, yo leader take me 2 it.

It was like ....chorus.

Love's kiss was running all thru my brain

The bed started shakin, I don't know who 2 blame

Me or this flower right in front of my eyes

Is this my sweet saviour or the devil in disguise"

Basically its about sex and God, a great opening to a Prince song, the sound and backing are dope.

.

Also the lyrics quoted at the start are

"Take my hand and it will be alright

Come on save ur soul 2nite"

Got some kind of love for you, and I don't even know your name

eek to your statement/quote. Since we are mortal, I like to see you say that when you expire and have to face Jesus in the Afterworld.

I like so much of his music, but "Thunder" and "Tick, Tick Bang" are by far two of his worst songs. I was really surprised "Thunder" was an album opener and "Tick, Tick Bang" was featured in the Grafitti Bridge movie.

I happen to thoroughly enjoy both of those songs.

This. Both are two of my favorites and I love them to bits. smile

My vote for "Thunder" is as an awesome song. "Tick,Tick, Bang" also gets a pass 'cause the drum pattern there reminds me of The Jimi Hendrix Experience's "Little Miss Lover." cool

That's cause it IS!!!!! Sampled the Breakbeat Intro!!!

cool

I like but not love both songs actually. I haven't heard the old version of TTB but I wouldn't be surprised if it was an improvement. The Joffrey Ballet choreographed an ext'd version Thunder in their Billboards production that centered on P music in the 90s. Excellent, the song sounded fresh and powerful. It still holds up IMO

Thunder is one of the most slammin' album openers ever by anyone. Tick, Tick Bang kicks all kinds of ass!

Hi-yo Silver, it's The Bone Ranger!

Note to those who don't know, The Org is FULL of God haters who disparage any song P makes with such content regardless of the beauty or (perceived) cheesiness of the lyrics so be warned and don't waste ur breath
