The song "it" from SOTT

I really love it but I never hear anyone talk about it why is that ?

I loved how he performed it at the end of Forever in my life in the SOTT movie and also during the diamonds and pearls tour at the end of Thieves in the Temple.

It's one of my favorite songs on the album. I don't think a lot of people feel the same.

we don't want to think about much of anything all the time let alone figure out what IT is, i think.

and some people are scared of clowns so maybe (oops) is a trigger

come on, everybody knows that "IT" is really a princespeaktextism for SUITE whereby eliminate "IT" and then what is left is USE, or U KNOW (in the spanish translation) or US (duh) and

why hasn't anybody created the game called "princespeaktextisms" and made them relevant yet?

i guess people just aren't obsessed like me

Prince definately got the dirty, gritty, nasty production right on this one.

It's like the album artwork went dark.

A banger! It has climbed the list throughout the years.

I love how he says "Alright" after every line.

When the Love Of My Life and I got back together for a short while in the early 90s, she told me every time she heard "It" she was reminded of me.

.

That was the best compliment I've ever received.

Honestly? It's almost like you gathered a bunch of those word magnets, threw them in the air and typed whatever you saw when they landed.

I think "It" could have been a single.Sounds like a Top 10 winner to me.

This song's title makes it hard to search for; does anyone have information about the unreleased "full version" mentioned on Princevault?

"It"'s kind of a dilution/direct simplification of his core lyrical themes.

"It"'s detractors maybe find that level of minimalism off-putting along with the darker vibe, dunno, but it's never been a super beloved track.

This is one of his best songs, though. I was a bit of a goth kid growing up so I'm biased when he goes darker tapestry especially because he so rarely went there. Kinda ties back to that "law of attraction" thread probably, but he was damned good at them darker styles.

So Prince recorded "It" in May 1986. In September 1986 Stephen King's book "It" came out. I good portion of the book takes place in June 1958! And then later on in the part set in 1985, Prince's "New Album" is mentioned--with the dig at Prince that the person did not want the album.
