Well there's a red house over yonder
That's where my baby stays
Lord there's a red house over yonder
Oh that's where my baby stays
I ain't been home to see my baby
In ninety-nine and one half days


So I guess you could go over yonder and ask his baby.

"Oh oh ooooh
We can fuck
Oh oh ooooh
We can fuck."


To quote one KaneRobot, "He's not wrong."

Some Things Prince Says He (or We) Can Do:

fuck
funk
funk until the dawn
work it out
get up
work on that zipper, baby
do this
pose in the mirror
stay in touch
feel 4ever
make some time
take our vows
change anything at all
fill your every dream, baby
find a good reason
feel U without even touching
jump in the sack
hold my own
eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant

Some Things Prince Says He (or We) Can't Do:

love U anymore
be lovers
make babies
last
stop this feeling I got
look into your eyes
be your prince
make U love me if you don't
make your heart feel something if you don't
watch U die like this
make U understand
be your hero
hang with you
find no place to go
dance unless it's me and U
watch U living a lie

I wrote "you" instead of "U" not once, not twice, not 38 times, but THREE times! To atone, I must now walk naked through my town while a severe nun rings the cowbell from "U Got the Look" and says "Shame. Shame." Coincidentally, that exact mental image kept a jaded Prince hard throughout the year 1995.

The "I"s don't count as errors because I couldn't find a keyboard eyeball.

Sign O the Times, the 1987 concert film written and directed by Prince that served as a companion piece to his iconic double album, is coming to Showtime. On September 16, the movie will air on television for the first time in over a decade.


Between this and the Twin Peaks return, I'm convinced that somebody at Showtime is just going through my browser history and trying their damndest to prove that they're cooler than HBO.

I was thinking again today that among the major-est of major artists, Prince might be the one with the shittiest, most slovenly run of album covers.

Also in the running:

Neil Young
Bob Dylan
The Beach Boys
Stevie Wonder (who at least has an excuse)
The Kinks

I don't know, I think all of those guys (Prince, Neil, Dylan, Beach Boys) all had some pretty good/fitting artwork during their peak years. Of course, it's hard to separate the artwork from the good music, but I'd defend the album covers of Sign O' the Times or Purple Rain on a purely aesthetic level any day. Neil's album covers are just mostly boring.


If you're talking about later on in their careers, well yeah. The Beach Boys in particular had some nightmarishly bad aesthetics going on in the 1980s.

"Purple Rain" is a greasier version of the cover for "Ziggy Stardust" if Bowie had Batgirl's cycle. "Sign O' the Times" is "Sgt. Pepper" if three of the Beatles and all the cardboard people walked away, the photographer was in the wrong spot, and Paul was standing way too close to the camera, with jaundice. Or you could put half a yellow Prince in front of one of Neil Young's less lousy covers.

You might be hyp-mo-tized by A+ contents. You can also listen to "Pet Sounds" on a loop for the next 40 years, still be hearing new things in it, and the cover (cough) design will remain just a perfunctory 3-minute shoot at a petting zoo.

I would estimate that the covers for "Lovesexy" and "3121" are probably, umm, let's say the furthest from unsuccessful. Prince's best album cover, whatever it actually is, would be like the Flaming Lips' fifth best, and who cares about Flaming Lips album covers?

Neil Young mostly doesn't try, but whenever he does it's horrible: see "Zuma," or his self-titled debut, or "The Monsanto Years," or "American Stars 'n Bars," or "Trans"... ugh. They couldn't be uglier if they had tufts of kudzu hair sticking out of the sides and looked like Neil Young.
