Wherever U Go, Whatever U Do

who can listen without crying eyes out? beautiful isn't it? and that old linn drum machine...

.

sometimes i just think that this is one of those songs that nobody could create but Prince...so simple & pure.

.

it was not a single, tho...

.

last time it was played in 2002 shows.

.

lyrics are timeless... >

.

Oh-ooh

Wherever U go, whatever U do
Oh please, remember that I'll always be there 4 U
U don't have 2 call, U don't have 2 say
Just think about me and I'll be on my way
I don't have 2 worry, I'm sure U'll be fine
Cuz if U stay happy, then what's your's is mine
Wherever U go, whatever U do
Remember that I'll always be there 4 U
(Oh Baby)

Wherever U R, think of your dreams
Oh please, remember life ain't always what it seems
4 each rainy day (rainy day)
That comes your way
The sun will come shining and U'll be okay
Keep on smiling - every girl and boy
Remember when U were children U had toys
Wherever U R, think of your dreams
Remember that dreams become the life U lead

Whatever U play, it's okay 2 lose
Ooh sometimes (sometimes...)
As long as U learn from every game U choose
If one thing is sure, U'll always endure
If U try your best at everything U do
Say what U mean and mean what U say
The price 4 a broken heart - it's 2 much 2 pay
And nothing is worth it, if U don't have 2 try
The higher the stakes - the higher the sky

Wherever U go, whatever U do
Please remember
Remember that I'll always be there 4 U

Moving song. Does have a slight resemblance to the sound of Baltimore, I think.

Just heard it for the first time two days ago. (I have bought every single Prince album since "Dirty Mind" on the day they were released, but two albums ("Rave" and "Vault") I never listened to. I set those aside for that rainy day when there would be no new Prince material. Well, that day came and I cracked open "Rave" and gave it a listen as though it were a brand new Prince album.)

.

I liked "Wherever U Go..." a ton. Very simple, catchy tune. And upbeat. Nice thoughts. A top Prince tune.

Wow you're so lucky!

I really like the duet with gwen. After like the first 10 listens, not right away lol.

Listening to it right now. One of those Prince songs that gives me goosebumps whenever I hear it. Such a beautiful, understated song. Genius doesn't have to be complicated, just special. music

I always felt this song could've been a huge hit single with the right promo and airplay. It is one of the few Prince songs with universally relatable lyrics. I could very easily see this becoming one of those staples at weddings and funerals.

It's a shame, thinking about what could've been. sad
