NFL "Push"

There was an NFL commercial earlier for a game with the San Francisco 49ers and the Minnesota Vikings.

"Push" was played in the background.

Thought that was cool.

Maybe they struck a deal with the Estate that they could use Prince's music for free as long as the Estate decides what they play because this could be seen as promotion for D&P (SDE)

Looking forward to the time of the For You SDE then, and they play Neurotic Lover’s Bedroom!
There may or may not be something coming!

I like the D&P album, but it’s been ages since I heard Push. Reading this post, I found I had no memory of how it goes at all…

So I checked it out and … it’s a bit like Eye No, right? And the Ball (obviously), and It Bes Like That, Sometimes.

Underneath all the 90z add-ons, it’s pretty cool, if derivative. Most of the drums sounds pretty much like ‘86, but then with additional percussion, samples and scratching that came in with the Nude tour (all hail Kirky J and Damon Dickson!)

Looking forward to a proper listen when I get the new set.

Would love to just remove a bunch of the tracks and hear what’s underneath.

I still cant believe that scene survived through the editing process into the final video...its so much unintentional comedy.

lol I think a lot of it was tongue in cheek. Tony says there was a lot of laughs and banter amongst the hard work.
.
You can hear it in the band version of Something Funky (This House Comes) and The Last Dance with Tony cracking up at Prince’s ‘Igor’ shout out.

Tony M. brandishing a pimp cane in the water always sends me into a laughing fit...their matching shades and onesies bathing suits...Prince's little frail undefined arms/shoulders struggling to do that one pushup with poor form...no one else (no ladies?) in the scene...they shouldve had Rosie Gaines and Mayte in bikinis singing & dancing poolside cool

But of course inferior to the Prince classic NFL song PURPLE AND GOLD - one stroke of genius - not razz

Slightly different timeframe perhaps. But same vibe?

It's one of the best songs on D+P for sure. The Clare Fischer orchestration is so so great in it.

Those are thought to be lifted from "Old Friends 4 Sale." Not surprising. He reused "Rave Un2"'s lead line in "The Max," and the hook in "Sex Shooter" is also in "She's Always In My Hair." Just a couple of examples of him reusing stuff like that.

A couple more here. Can you imagine Bob Dylan or Van Morrison trying this?



What on earth is he doing? trying to protect something like his bat lair
