~ Prince originals(Mavis Staples) 1987

SILVER STREET somewhere iN the CITY OF QUARTER NOTES

And Camille finds yet another color...



What do you think of the 1987 cuts by Prince for Mavis (mostly done for the Bridge of Graffiti movie) and her Time Waits For No One album?

.

I'm listening to Come Home(Prince vocals) that was released on here album.

Reminds me of 1985-86 songs like Crucial. Not 'so' impressed but I love hearing that sound and it's unique Prince vocals

.


COME HOME
GOD IS ALIVE
I GUESS I'M CRAZY
INTERESTING
JAGUAR

MELODY COOL

MY TREE A Positive Place

TIME WAITS 4 NO ONE
TRAIN

.

Melody Cool: "The birdy said Camille is a very smart fine musician [Camille beams] who has a bad habit of forgetting who his friends are. Let me tell U a story. I had a friend once ..."

Come Home
How did it come 2 this?
U livin' in your world and me dyin' in mine
Lord knows I don't deserve this
I never gave U any reason 2 treat me unkind
Each day that goes by I grow lonelier
Sadder than the day before
I'd give anything just 2 hold U in my arms
Or see U standin' at my door

Cuz darlin', U mean more than words could explain
Ooh darlin', the pain, it cuts so deep

And it's only a matter of time
Before I go right out of my mind
I don't care who was wrong
I only know that when U're gone
I think about U every day
Why'd U have 2 go away and leave me all alone?
Won't U please come home, baby?
(Baby, won't U please come home? I don't wanna be alone)
Come home
(Baby, won't U please come home? I don't wanna be alone)

Why did we ever part?
U were my lover and I was your friend
How did this argument start?
Couldn't we just kiss and start over again?
Whoever said all good things soon come 2 an end
Never had anybody like U
There's a pounding in the pit of my heart
Whenever I think of what we used 2 do
(Ooh, the things we use 2 do)

Cuz darlin', U mean more than words could explain
Darlin', darlin', the pain cut so deep

And it's only a matter of time
'Fore I go right out of my mind
I don't care who was wrong
I only know that when U're gone
I think about U every day
Why'd U have 2 go away, leave me all alone?
Won't U please come home, baby?
(Baby, won't U please come home? I don't wanna be alone)
I can't take it no more
Come on, come on, come on, come on, baby

Looky here
I got somethin' I wanna say
U know I never treated U bad
U know I was the best U ever had
I know it's just a matter of time
'Fore I go right out of my mind

Ow!
Baby, help me
Oh baby

It's just a matter of time before I go right out of mind
I don't care who was wrong, baby
All I know, all I know is that when U're gone
I say when U're gone
I think about it every day any old kind of way
Why'd U leave me, why'd U leave me?
Why'd U go away?
Baby, baby, won't U come home?

(Baby, won't U please come home? I don't wanna be alone)
Come on, come on home
Help me – come on, come on home
(Baby, won't U please come home? I don't wanna be alone) {fade out}
Somebody help me
Come on, come on home

The Prince version is exquisite.

Pills and thrills and daffodils will kill... If you don't believe me or don't get it, I don't have time to try to convince you, sorry.

How Prince looks and how the guitar sounds in the video for Time Waits For No One. Maybe his most beautiful look and guitar sound at the height of his career. And I'm a guy. But just stunning.

Love him just sitting by the light post on guitar and his glasses looking cool as ever.
That drum pattern on this song is hot too. Remincient of Aaliyah's One In A Million years later.

Album plays and love for vinyl records.

Train is one of my favorites from the Dream Factory sesssions.

Train feels like a side story of Under the Cherry Moon. Like a story of Christopher and Tricky heading to Nice, France

Come on, man, get your bag
We got to go
Man, tell that girl goodbye, let's get out of here

'Bout this love affair

That will take you straight to Santa Fe
If you feel this thing we got just can't go on
Then I won't stand in your way
I won't stand in your way
I won't stand in your way
I'm so in love with you (I'm so in love with you)
You're all I wanna be (you're all I wanna be)
Whenever you go away, baby (whenever you go away)
You take a part of me (you take a part of me)
Yes, you do (yes, you do)
A man's gotta do what he gotta do
But remember, babe, wherever you go
I'm with you (I'm with you)
'Cause I need ya
If you really don't love me anymore
I just don't know what to say
There's a train that's leavin' in the morning
That will take you straight to Santa Fe
If you feel this thing we got just can't go on
I won't stand in your way
I won't stand in your way
I won't stand in your way
No, no

How cool that Prince makes an appearance in Mavis' video!! My favorite Mavis/Prince collaboration is A Man Called Jesus. What a massively funky song!!

GOD IS ALIVE

Flash, flash!
Jack just got the news
God is alive! God is alive!

CHORUS:
Whoa, oh! {x3}
God is alive

News is comin' like a hurricane
Comin' down hard on those who live in vain
Treatin' each other funky when U know we're all the same
God is alive, this is not a game

CHORUS
(He's alive)

News is comin' like a dog in heat
He's lookin' 4 soldiers with strong feet
That can dance on whoever can't say His name
God is alive, this is not a game (Listen)

CHORUS
(Listen)
(Yeah, I'm a witness)
(Do U believe?) (U know it)

All of His children come take a blissy ride
4 all who see Him, 4 all He lives inside
U can be so happy, purely satisfied
God is alive

Live, live!

One step at a time, we need a new rhyme (Alive)
Up with education, down with crime
Alive!

CHORUS
(God is alive!)

Live, live!
God is alive! {x5}

(CHORUS) {repeat parts in BG}
Oh yeah
Woke me up this morning
Started me on my day
Got my health and strength, y'all
I can truly say
Ooh, He's alive! Well
Ah, He's alive!
All over me
Ah, He's alive!
I'm a livin' witness
That God's alive!
I'm a livin' witness He's alive!
Do U believe that He's alive?
Do U believe, oh, He's alive?
Ooh, yes He is
Sho'nuff He is, well
Yes He is
Each breath I breathe lets me know
Every step I take lets me know
Every song I sing, oh, lets me know
Oh, God is alive!

Whoa, oh

Oh my god my precious love! | Prince musician, Prince rogers nelson, Prince  tribute
