Gilles Peterson just played this after people make the world go round That's where he stole the bassline from!

yo...arent you tired yet?...youve been complaining about this song for 9 days and over 7 pages


why do you insist on replying to everything i post? have you got a crush on me or something? are you like prince's cyber bodyguard or something? you want to be big chick with prince riding on your back? lol lol lol



i was actually going to say hearing this on the radio, as opposed to earphones via spotify, makes it sound better. lyrically im not that into it but the song has kinda grown on me.

"The War"'s special needs cousin.

I get that it's an "intro" type track to the album. But Zaza made a point about Prince usually starts a record with something bombastic that set the tone of the record. "Let's Go Crazy," "1999," "Controversy," "Sign O the Times," "Around The World In A Day," "Musicology," "My Name is Prince," "Dirty Mind," "3121," "eye No," "etc.

But this? I hope to god the musicality isn't indicative of the album as a whole.

"eye don’t really care so much what people say about me because it is a reflection of who they r."

I can’t wait until the full album’s released so we can get the inevitable wave of W2A (the song) revaluation posts. (“I didn’t like the single as a standalone track, but now I’m diggin’ it within the context of the album. It really is a pretty cool opener.”) You KNOW they’re comin’.

Have to say I love it
Anything new and unheard is a treasure to me.

Same with Neil Young and Bowie...these are like special moments to be savoured .

Even if something unheard is awful I would still get a buzz. Its always better than not having it at all.

Do we think there will be another single released prior to the album's release?

Without a double. I predict 2 or three in fact. The next one needs to be strong.

You'd think there's a good chance they'll release a track around his birthday. Born 2 Die or Check The Record, after they were previewed on CBS

I'd expect somethning on the 7th, but do you call them singles or just preview tracks? Is there any attempt at all to get any airplay?

I like it. It reminds me of TRC a bit smile

Same. It really peaked my interest, I get the impression most of it is going to be standard fair for an album from the time period, but I'm hoping for a few tracks at least to live up to the title track.
