It's the track Prince used to hoodwink people into thinking he was going to release loads of Revoltion-era stuff when he lanuched NPG Music Club in 2001 biggrin

It was one of the first batch of songs to come out. But then most of the studio stuff was from the 2000/2001 era (which I didn't really mind but I'm sure many were disappointed).

Didn't Prince also say it was one of his favorite tracks?

Really? No wonder I love it. I heard it first time last night and now it's on repeat. Atypical for me to do that. Chocolate invasion era. Maybe.

Splash is the ringtone for the love of my life.

"Basic tracking took place on 1 August 1985 at the Washington Avenue Warehouse in Edina, Minnesota (... three days before recording Empty Room)."

From Splash to Empty Room in three days? He certainly got every possible feel out of that relationship - lucky for us.

It was a separate MP3 download as well.

Would work on Parade Deluxe, but since it's already been "released", I wonder if they'll include it?

They left Good Love, original Crucial and several others off of SOTT:SDE because they were already released.

So becasue someone said Prince maybe said it was one of his favorite tracks THAT explains why you like it? Because you think you're just like Prince or some other magical nonsense? I'm curious. Why does Prince liking something mean that you'll like it?

Not unreleased but unavailable. Splash is a great track and one of the tracks to be rumored to appear on Roadhouse Garden...which was cancelled after Prince told Wendy and Lisa they should repent of sorts. Splash is a beautiful reghae tinged track reminicent of Crucial and If It'll Make You Happy.
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

I wonder how they would approach it, as it's never been physically available, only ever an mp3 (or was it some kind DRM file at that point?), and cannot be legally accessed now?

Classic Prince. In terms of embodying a song title purely in the music, it may even be unmatched in his catalogue.

A favorite of mine since the first time I heard it on that 3121/Planet Earth site!

Aside from that it reminds me of a perfume ad soundtrack--a really slinky, sexy one!

Imagine if a full album was done along those lines... yes

It's still a valid question.

Prince liked soy milk, I can't stand it.

Prince liked pussy - not me.

Prince liked Jehovah's Witness - you'll never find me in a kingdom hall, evar.

Prince liked Tony M's rapping... (we know how this one ends).

Tony seems like a great person. Never liked his Chuck D derivative flow though.

Not sure if it's been mentioned above, but there is a slightly different alternative mix of the song which is interesting (it has a wierd goat noise near the end) - but I hope the other NPGMC version is released by the estate when the time comes!
