I already knew that. So it's not the same song at all. Anna Waiting is absolutely not in the album. Neither the remix of Batdance, nor 200 balloons. A song is : the music + the lyrics. Even the part heard in the movie of VW sounds a little different, IIRC. So even the production was likely reworked anyway. [Edited 1/12/22 9:51am] [Edited 1/12/22 9:52am]
You can twist it around however you want. The song wasn't written for Batman. Tweaking lyrics to mention Gotham and Vicki etc doesn't change the fact the song is the same.

The song wasn't ORIGINALLY written for Batman. Re-writing the lyrics to fit the themes/characters/setting of the film is part of the writing process. The song was clearly modified and (re)written for Batman. I am not sure what the argument here is. That songs with different lyrics aren't different songs?

"Vicki" instead of "Anna" and "Gotham town" instead of wherever else is not quite "rewriting" a song.

Some good songs, but I really disliked that production. Sounded very ´dry´. But it was still Prince being original

Instead of what you said?
It's the 4th time I ask you to illustrate your BS by quoting the original words to Anna Waiting.
Please, tell us.

Why are you pretending like the words on the screen mean something different for you than me? You can read the entry. If you interpret that as meaning he rerecorded and rewrote the song... Sure. Alright then.

You'll want to save this post and come back to it after the song leaks.

I never saw someone arguing so much about a song he never heard, and never even read its lyrics.

I totally get what you are saying. Yet, surely you see that switching of a few words completely changes the theme and subject matter of the song. Thus...rewriting. I mean, switching a few words for other, different, new words is literally the definition of re-writing.

-

Also, there is a bit of math to be done here. How many times is the word Vicki in the song now, instead of Anna? Music is largely about repetition and patterns. So, not only is the very title of the song changed (which changes the theme), the sheer amount of times Vicki is stated powerfully injects visions on Kim Basinger into my head through my earholes. Thus, by only switching a few words the song is, in fact, rewritten.

Ditto, brother.
