Phase3

Never heard that before!

So I recently invested a great pair of headphones.
I now hear some stuff I have never heard even though I have heard the particular songs a 100 times.
2 examples are
Poom Poom-around the 2:35 mark,you can hear prince saying "Tick tock,tick tock"
Come-i have never noticed prince whistling in the middle of the song.I will have to go back and see the time stamp for that one
Are there any example any of you care to share?

This should be a great thread, we'll see what happens lol

.

"Hot Thing" extended version.

Initially, the sax solo is enhanced with guitar by Prince to beef it up.

Then, Eric's solo is isolated over the drum track and we hear a "wooo!" from Prince.

Then, Prince's guitar freakout is isolated and the same "wooo!" is heard.

I just heard the remastered version in the new bus today and was blown away how clear it was!

Makes me wonder if Prince and Eric were recording their intruments at the same time?

The very buried in the mix couple of words someone says at the start of Girls and Boys ("repeat", perhaps? At least that is how I always heard it)

Not so much the headphones (cheap Sony earbuds), but that clean A Million Miles (I Love You) that leaked just after he passed. The background vocals during the chorus sound like he's going extra hard, like really belting, screaming. It's all I can hear when I listen to it now lol.

I posted a while back about hearing the words "irresistible bitch" in a very low voice, in the same named song. If you listen throughout, wrapped around the Linn and percussion, you can hear him mumble "irresistible bitch."

To be fair, you can hear that whispering/dialogue pretty clearly - I figured it was intentionally loud. You cant make out every word but indeed the voices say the song title and other stuff.

At the very end of the extended version of La La la He he he, after the song finishes, Prince says something along the lines of "now play that back". I just noticed this week.

To be fair, not everyone did.

I hear "play that thang", like the chant during his bass solo

I've splurged on a great pair of headphones too, last year and the differences in some songs is pretty remarkable. I love hearing little musical details i haven't heard before.

Since I've moved house I've also noticed many different elements in songs whenever I'm listening to some Prince tunes and need a #1 or #2 - when I'm alone I don't bother to close any doors lol - and it's amazing to me how when listening from the crapper in the hallway I can notice some part of a song that I haven't noticed for 30 years. Mostly high end nuances.

So my suggestion is: next time y'all take a dump, leave the door open and the radio on. You might discover something amazing.

Another recent example, not exactly what we're talking about but very close: I was driving somewhere a few months back with my partner in the car, and "Kiss" was playing on the stereo. I've been a big Prince fan since 1993, and my partner just tolerates "my Prince thing", which is cool. I tolerate his Thrice thing (it's awful), so we're square. Anyway, I can't say what exactly I thought Prince sang on the bridge of "Kiss", something like "You, doe, we, despair aye", I never really thought about it much, and I was barely listening to the song, and he goes, "What's Little Girl Wendy's Parade?" I still didn't get it, so I go, "How do you know about Little Girl Wendy's Parade?" He's like, "He just said it," and my mind was blown.

So yeah, I never heard that before, either.

It took me quite a long time to figure that out. Back then, most anyone never knew about bootlegs or alternate names to songs, etc. So "Little Girl Wendy's Parade" was as unknown as where Jimmy Hoffa was buried.

It was only last week that I heard the backwards-singing on Girl (ext version). Really cool.

oh wow, I never knew what he was saying there either, until I read this just now. In fact, your incoherent interpretation of the words above is what helped me connect that it was this line in the song you were referring to, hahaha! I always wondered what he was saying there! Thank you for that.

The first time I heard Reflection I thought he was singing about how they used to compare "whose asshole was the brownest."

Until I find the righteous one...

Well what's the point of having this forum if you cant ask a simple question? Ofcourse you can google it but it's much more fun to get the answers on here.
I think Bart is the type of person that just likes to bitch all the time

I can't speak for the sound you hear or do not hear through your headphones but what I can give you as far as an example goes is one time I invested in a really cheap pair of headphones, the ear bud type and the wires were shorting out and I could only hear music out of one side sometimes but one time it was great because somehow the music came through as if I was hearing track layers, so I was actually hearing stand alone vocals only parts sometimes or just vocals and guitar sometimes. It's what makes music and music production so fascinating to me.

All that time stamp stuff really doesn't mean anything unless you are producing a visual and can get someone to start and stop the image.

I just listened to “Dorothy Parker” on some killer Sennheisers and at the 1:38 mark I swear I could hear Bart calling me a piece of shit for simply asking a question that I could’ve Googled.


this is really funny too. You’re lucky! I wish Bart would call me a piece of shit. I make all these comments, but he barely knows I’m alive. He’s sooo funky.

If Emancipation was remastered we'd be falling out of our chairs right now.

On KISS I thought he was saying something 2 the effect "watch what little girl Wendy's gonna play"

Also I hear ,especialy on the "live" Oprah mix of "Sleep Around", more of a snipet of GQ"s " Disco Nights" in the music bridge than the oft noted sample of Tower of Power's Squib Cakes.

It's all good,whatever you hear is alright!
