Prince : Love & Sex ~ 2.27.1984

Ok, this is the song that got my attention 100% when I bought the PR Deluxe set

I love his wildness so this one hit the freaky dial perfectly

opening similar to the extended version of IWD4U and Hollyrock

extreme linn pumping

twirky guitar playing

spot on Yamaha DX-7 synth work

sandwiched between Traffic Jam & When Doves Cry recordings

engineer Peggy McCleary

.

Today I listened to it and when he was asking jumped out at me

.

.

I'll paraphrase

When we are dead and in Heaven will you still want to have sex with me and will God let me fu@k U... I LOVE Prince!!!

Come on baby, Hurt Me

When we both die

and go 2 Heaven

Will U still desire me

Will He make U

Will He let U hurt me in the Upper Room

Sha la la la

sha la boom

Come on baby, Hurt Me

in the Upper Room

Love & Sex in the Upper Room

.

.

He ends with 'that's right' in a Morris Day voice

.

A Liar Shall Not Tarry In My Presence

What's the matter with your life
Is poverty bringing U down?
Is the mailman jerking U 'round?
Did he put your million dollar check
In someone else's box?
Tell me, what's the m

I love it. Really lived up to my expectations.

Talking of Traffic Jam why wasn't this included on disc two. That is also a great track.

I love near the end when he's doing call and response ' Let me hear U say yeah"! Its almost like a fast paced baptist church song

One of my new favourites - amazing song which, in my opinion, back on June didn’t get the love an attention it deserves!

I didn't pay it much attention at first on the PR Deluxe. After I sat and listened to the Peach and Black podcast, I gave it a more in depth listen. I love it now!

The lyrics are what do it for me. "No marriage in Heaven" is something that has bothered my husband for years. He kind of feels the same way as Prince sings about here. He can't imagine seeing me in Heaven and not being with me. I wonder what was going on in Prince's life to cause

him to ponder the same thing.

[Intro]
One, two, three, four
Yeah!
Come on, baby, hurt me
Uh

[Verse 1]
When we both die
And we go to heaven
Will you still desire me
Or will He make you fire me
Will He let you hurt me in the upper room


[Chorus]
Let me say now
Sha la la la sha la la boom
Come on, baby, hurt me in the upper room
Sha la la la sha la la boom
Love and sex in the upper room

[ad lib]
Alright
Hit me
Ow
Huh
Verse two

ADVERTISEMENT


[Verse 2]
When we both cry
And want each other
Will you still resist me
Will you come and kiss me
How am I supposed to sleep
Without you in my arms

[Chorus]
Keep singin'
Sha la la la sha la la boom
Come on, baby, hurt me in the upper room
Sha la la la sha la la boom
Love and sex in the upper room

[Breakdown]
Get low
Boom boom sha la boom
Not too sad, too sad, happy to heaven
Just one single sexy glance or two
That's what kind of party is the cool
Sha la la boom
I punt on my Sunday best
(His clothes is so sharp)
Sha boom

[Verse 3]
When we all die
And go to heaven
Will He let us fantasize
Or is there some new cool surprise?
Let's all try to come together before we go

[Chorus]
Keep singin'
Sha la la la sha la la boom
Come on, baby, hurt me in the upper room
Sha la la la sha la la boom
Love and sex in the upper room
Yeah, the upper room

Yeah keep singin'
Sha la la la sha la la boom
Come on, baby, hurt me in the upper room
Sha la la la sha la la boom
Love and sex in the upper room
Yeah, the upper room

[Outro]
Do you feel alright?
(Yeah!)
Do you feel alright?
(Yeah!)
Do you feel alright?
Let me hear you say, let... me hear you say "Yeah!"
(Yeah!)
(Yeah!)
Let me hear you say "Yeah!"
(Yeah!)
Whoo!
(Yeah!)
Alright
(Yeah!)
Let me hear you say "Yeah!"
Ooh, oh Lord

Mine too, I was going to start a thread about it. It’s really grown on me. I offend start with this track then come back to it after computer blue is over.

Yes

That is a subject of discussion all on it's own for sure

The wild, outrageous and climactic Prince is Prince at his best...like this track.

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
