I love this one too. I wish I could remember which article it was or where I saw that Dez, I think said, the band recorded their parts of the track and then left Prince to do the vocals by himself in the studio. It was kind of implied that Prince did what was ahem necessary to get the sound right. (Or as I can't pull the article up maybe that's wishful thinking!)

Am I right in thinking he performed this on Oprah shortly after the loss of his son! I need to go back and check but I am sure at the time, I felt his performance of this song and the effort he put into it, was to put the focus back onto the music and his incredible stage presence. Almost like he was doing too much. I am going to watch this again later to see if I still get that impression .

I don't think he was having sex in the studio. The records in books suggest he had the studios covered in candles and pink swathes of fabric when recorded it and lay on the floor shrieking into a microphone.

.

I doubt any of this is true, the candles would have dripped wax over the mixing boards and messed up the process. My guess is Prince was singing from recent experiences. Outside of music I am sure Prince was having a lot of sex in 1981. As much as a horny toad he was, Prince was way to professional, especially in the early days to be taking girls in a studio booth to have sex with and I doubt he would be masturbating, except between takes.

.

Also this would have been his home studio or Sunset sound with male engineers around. i could hardly Prince jacking off or sexing some woman in front them, why saying "Turn down the keys, put more oomph on my screams - yeah baby, ohwah!!!" and the girl is groaning with pleasure. We all know the story about Kim Basinger and the honey in 1989. But this was Paisley Park and in 1989 Prince was a big star, in 1981 he was barely a cult figure.

.

Despite this, Do Me Baby is a supreme song, I really love the screams and just the feel of the lyrics. He sings it with such conviction of a man in pure lust, he can not control his inhibitions any more and he senses his partner feels the same. Nothing else is on their mind. He conveys the mood so well, it is hard to believe that he was NOT doing it in the studio. This is pretty steamy stuff and you need a shower afterwards, also because you are so cold lol

.

It was the first of many satisfying sex ballads, that Prince became famous for. The next one for me was International Lover, where Do Me Baby moves on to an airplane. I also love When 2R in love, I love u in me, Insatiable, Scandalous and Pheromone. All par excellence sex ballads.

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

For me, it is my favorite of his highly explicit songs. No innuendo here biggrin . It really made Orgasm unnecessary....so much better with this one.

Absolutely amazing song. I love the sheer raw passion and the ecstatic screams! I love the real sense of passion and feeling in his earlier work in songs such as these, it felt like he really felt and expressed all the emotions then, which was sadly lacking in his later work where it felt more like he was going through the motions.

One of his greatest ballads and much better than that International Lover, which doesn't hold a candle to Do Me Baby.

I'm a huge Prince fan but have never heard the Kim Basinger story. Anyone care to rehash or direct me to a thread?

The Tupac song To Live And Die In L.A sampled Do Me Baby,but its uncredited.

Other Prince songs sampled in Tupac songs are Darling Nikki,777 9311 and Pop Life.

Do Me Baby sounds real, even though it would have sounded forced if anyone else tried to copy him. As much as I enjoy International Lover for entertainment purposes, it sounds more like he is trying to top Do Me baby with some goofy imagery. His lyrical metaphors are better on Little Red Corvette. Do Me Baby might be a bit literal. But it's still an amazing song.

It was one of my favorite epic Prince
ballads but my all time favorite is probably Adore or Insatiable. Imo these 3 ballads can't be touched. Lord have mercy on anyone attempting to remake/cover these 3 masterpieces.
