come elektra tuesday

alwayas thought this track didn't get the attention it deserved, this is a tight, funky, and quirky pop masterpiece, which you could describe a lot of this era's songs with, but to think this was uncirculating publicly for so long.

would love to know if this was ever re-done at any point... other than the musicology horn line thing similarity, which i'm not sure was an intentional copping

I feel the same about Love and Sex from '84. A classic wee stomper of a track. Hope we get a decent copy one day. The one on PR deluxe was average sounding.

CET is a funky wee ditty though.

Leave it to Prince to make a song about having sex in heaven, and having it be a rocker!

Come Elektra Tuesday is one of my favourite Prince songs


I actually think it's better than anything on Parade and I rate Parade very highly.

I think a Parade SDE could maybe even beat Sign O The Times in terms of great songs that could be included on a vault disc.

Come Elektra Tuesday
Call Of The Wild
Splash
A Couple of Miles
Neon Telephone
Others Here With Us
Old Friends 4 Sale
Heaven
Go
Empty Room
The Flesh stuff

And a load more unknown/unheard tracks.
