I miss the freaky Prince

In an attempt to organize my life, I decided to upload many of my CD to my computer last night. Then I was going to take the non scratched ones to CD Warehouse to get money for something special.

But I digress. So, I pulled out my huge collection of Prince CD and then I remembered he just released a new CD. Normally, I would have it already, but I miss the old Prince. The Prince who sang about "Darling Nikki" and what she did in the hotel lobby with the magazine.

And who can forget "Little Red Corvette?" He damned sure wasn't talking about a sport's car. Because you don't need a pocket full of Trojans to drive a car.

But it's lyrics like this that make me miss the old Prince even more:

I'd love 2 turn U on

And work U all night long

If I could get U in the raw

Baby, I'd make U climb the walls

Oh yeah, nothing can stop us now

I'm gonna show U how, oh yeah

Show U how 2 work

Come on, let's have some fun

We'll work till the morning comes, baby

I wanna see U work, come on!

And then there is the classic "Erotic City." Oh how I wish I could meet a man who could:

We can funk until the dawn, making love til cherrys gone

Erotic city cant u see, thoughts of pretty u and me

It wasn't until last night that I realized he was saying "funk" and not "fuck."

But Prince drops the f-word enough. Especially in one of my favorites, "Let's Pretend We're Married:"

I wanna fuck U so bad it hurts, it hurts, it hurts

Ooh, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna fuck U

Yeah, I wanna, I wanna, ooh, I wanna fuck U

Look here martian, I'm not sayin' this just 2 be nasty

I sincerely wanna fuck the taste outta your mouth

Can U relate?

Yes, old freaky Prince. Can you just come back for one album?
