Well - it's glorious! The guitar, that outro.... it's brilliant.

What a gem!

Well I guess all the best stuff really did come after the 1:50 mark. Wow! I always thought the song just sounded kind of fun and cutesy but it really takes you places. The guitar is clearly inspired, as well. I’m trying to think of where he might have placed it on SOTT. Maybe in place of Play In The Sunshine or ICNTTPOYM? Though, I could t imagine the album without them. He could have made an album around this song, but I guess he already did the psychedelic thing with ATWIAD. I think the sound seems good based on the YouTube link, though I do hear some slight static at the very beginning, but it doesn’t deter my enjoyment. How exciting to have this!

TBH I always hated this track and I still think it's awful. It's also really badly recorded and mixed – and totally distorted. I just hope this is not an indication of how most vault tracks on SOTT.SDE will sound.

.

Witness sounds great though, so fingers crossed.



100% agreed. I mean, of course, the second half is very artistic and "Princey".

But the first half sounds like it could be the theme song to about 50 different Disney kids shows.


I'm thinking somewhere between Elena of Avalor meets Paw Patrol.


This period overall is 90% genius material, including the vault tracks. But to my ears this track is most deciedly in the "other 10%" camp.

sounds like it was recording underwater. The Camile voice is not quite Camille but actually MORE sped up. Did they master this right?

Who was this song for? The Three O'Clock? cause it sounds like it would fit that lead singers voice.

I know there was talk before of this tape being possibly sped up but it turns out Prince was just a bit crazy lol lol

I like it! I mean, I can also see why it never saw the light of day but it could have ended up on some protegé album if it had made sense at the time.

Great guitar solo though yeah, agreed!

It sounds like the same source as the snippet that leaked out but the drums are way punchier on this version.

Also so amazing to actually hear the rest of the song. I really wasn't expecting what came next.

It's ok.

I've never like this track and I see why it was never released.

Yeah, no fan of this song...not when I had a part of it nor now that I have all of it. The song is one of those I do not see the poing in releasing..much like 'Colleen' from the 1999 set.

Ha! People have been crying out for this song for years and now we're going "Not great, no point in releasing this".

Also, Colleen is a cool as fuck song. I only wish they'd released Traffic Jam on the Purple Rain deluxe.

It sounds like the same sped-up Camille effect, but when he recorded it he was singing in falsetto so it sounds even higher pitched

Wow. So this is Cosmic Day? It's not great, is it? Still super stoked for the SDE but can't see myself revisiting this one much.

It’s an ok song. Still don’t understand why Emotional Pump or Rebirth of the Flesh aren’t singles when they’re stronger than the other 3 released

Pretty easy to see why this didn't make the cut. But happy to hear!
