Great song, and as others have said the extended Remix takes it to a new level.

.

Love the version from D&P tour with It mixed in. Also, sounded cool on the P&M tour.

Kim wouldn't leave the twin cities after Prince(r.i.p.) ended the relationship. She flipped completely out. So Prince(r.i.p.) called her brother who came to get her, and after they left Kim's car was still left at Paisley Park. So Prince(r.i.p.) had it towed away back to her.



Ridiculous rumors about Prince having a "hold" on Kim sexually and/or psychologically are sensationalistic, bloated gossip. Kim had lifelong mental issues.



Sorry, but the well-known story is that Kim’s Brother flew to MN to take her back to LA because her family was worried about her. She left everything there. Prince was not there when she left. He did not know she left. Alan Leeds talked about it in an interview.

The story is in the song I Wonder.

I think she said on some interview she suffers from Anxiety or Gorophopia or something. I love Kim B, she had a Marylin Monroe-ish thing about her...her movies are pretty good too!

Yes, she has panic attacks which caused her to not want to leave the house.
*
I think his song I Love U In Me was most likely about her too, because it was recorded during the time they were together.


That song is was intense. I'm sure they had a passionate affair.

Great song.It's sorta like an updated "When Doves Cry"....The Kid is hurting....he feels rejected...."how can U just leave me standing"?...."U said you love me!"

I gotta admit,though....when I first saw the video,I knew that the movie was doomed confused

Prince's crazy outfit,the cheap-looking sets,and the cringe-worthy reference to a "pimp sandwich" :- let's just say that,the video didn't make me excited to see the movie.

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?

Thieves In The Temple, Part 2

I'm holdin' on (I'm holdin' on) the best that I can
Love please, (let me be) let me be the better man
Better than the ones that wanna count me out
Better than the ones that don't know what my love's about
I'm talkin' 'bout the kinda love that can move a mountain
The kinda love that could part the sea
The kinda love that'll last 4 ever
(no matter what u say we should be together)
U should be with me (thieves in the temple)
Yeah, u should be with me

I said I wanna know (talk to me)
One thing (talk to me)
Said I wanna know (talk to me)
I wanna know one thing, baby (talk to me)

How come you said that I was your baby
When u and your love was gonna leave
U led me on, led me on thinkin' U was Moses
Herding sheep blindly through a fantasy
U done me wrong (thieves in the temple)
And everybody knows it
Now the sound of my voice is pumpin' in your chest
More or less, I am here to tell u that
I am the best
Better than the rest
Better than the thieves in the temple tonight
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, hurt me

(Put it in)
Thieves in the temple
Thieves in the temple
Thieves in the temple
Thieves in the temple tonight

Put your foot on the rock
Let me show you how to clock

Put your foot on the rock
Let me show you how to clock

Thieves in the temple
(What the....?)

Who got the party, who got the party, who?
Who got the party, who got the party, who?
Who got the party, who got the party, who?
Who got the party, who got the party, who?

(hurt me)

Thieves in the temple

Killer track & video...as said the extended is really the only way to listen to it.

I really like Graffiti Bridge as an album (except that horrible title track). I even like New Power Generation and the non-Prince tracks. But NPG was a horrible 2nd single choice. Totally killed any sort of momentum that album had. Of course the movie didn’t help either.
We're gonna need a bigger boat

I always saw the New Power Generation song as refelective of the New Jack Swing style that was hot at the time. Actually I really like the song. In historical context I think this song makes perfect sense.
