I really wish people wouldnt try to label his live performances of songs like that to a genre... Its not punk, its just live... some person just decided to call it the punk version. I think i remember seeing that somewhere on that one popular video site and i think it was the Saginaw, MI 1982 or a New Orleans show of the same time.

usually known as "Leaped7689"

I've been wondering about it too.. it's simply a relatively straight playthrough of the album version, but live, so with the guitars a bit louder. It's great, as the song is great, but no complete reworking of the song.

.

It's not even as different from the studio version as the slowed down version of let's go crazy that he played the last few years. (and that one isn't very different either)

yes, it's a known fact that after 1981 Prince completely lost his fire. there was simply none left. he knew how to hide it for decades but the real fans knew.

i dunno...i grew up punk rock. i consider it more an attitude or a movement than anything. as far as i'm concerned, prince was punk as fuck. from 'for you' til 4/21/16.

The album version is more new wave-ish and experimental, while this live version sounds more akin to something a late 70's punk band would play. Hence the label, 'punk version'. There's definitely more of a raw energy to the live version.

Yeah, me too. Special Thanks 2 2freaky4church1 for reminding me of this new-wave-punk-funk gem.
So much for labels.

Wait... somebody make this! At least one verse and chorus.

I do love this live rendition of "Annie Christian"

Michael Jackson teamed up with Paul McCartney to make the hit novelty single "Say Say Say"

If Lennon hadn't been killed (not to mention, he's mentioned, in this subject song)... I have a day dream Prince might have made a hit novelty single with John Lennon.

It was called Punk way back when y'all. And New Wave too. The first time I saw Prince was at the Mudd Club in NYC, look it up. He got around. His hometown paper called him a Punk act.
