On episode 158 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, I dig deep into my northern European ancestry in an attempt to relate to the northern Midwest accent Prince uses for the chorus to “Yah, You Know” off the 1999 Super Deluxe release. Ch
On episode 157 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Eloy Lasanta and I talk about Prince’s unreleased gem, “Purple Music,” from 2019’s 1999 Super Deluxe. This widely bootlegged vault track is one of the crowning achievements from these

On episode 148 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, I talk about the unreleased companion to Dirty Mind’s “Gotta Broken Heart Again,” “Broken.” Prince still isn’t over being dumped, but at least he knows how to throw an awesome old-fash
On episode 147 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Micah Simpson from the Purple Underground YouTube Channel joins me in discussing the Dirty Mind/Controversy era vault track, “She’s Just a Baby.” We discuss who is the often-cited insp
On episode 146 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, I head to Prince’s home studio in Orono, MN, where Prince recorded much of his Dirty Mind LP and a couple of unreleased gems, “Lisa” and “Rough.” Was “Lisa” written about his new keybo
On episode 145 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, I travel back to July 1979, Boulder, Colorado, to talk about the pseudo-side band project, The Rebels. Prince and his new touring band take time away from Minneapolis to write and reco

The convoluted recording history of “Wouldn’t You Love to Love Me?” takes front and center on episode 142 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast. Besides who Prince offered this song to and how many times he recorded it over the span of 10
Prince lets his freak flag fly on “Neurotic Lover’s Bedroom,” the song he recorded after receiving a drum machine as a gift from his new manager. On episode 141 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, I’ll be diving into the depravity alon

I take a step back in time on episode 139 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast. A time before Prince was signed to Warner Bros. Records and a time before Prince even had a place of his own to live. I’ve journeyed back to 1976, when he wa
