As we noted last time , the late spring and summer of was an extraordinarily prolific time for Prince; it was also a notably experimental one. The closest thing the song has to a hook is the cascading synth line that follows, as shrill and piercing as an early cellular ringtone. Prince recites the lyrics—a fever dream of the End Times as mediated by cable news—in a nasally monotone. The end of the world was a widely-shared preoccupation in the early s. These apocalyptic anxieties were fueled in part by contemporary events. Her name is an obvious play on the Biblical Antichrist—though, given the gender swap, the Whore of Babylon may be the more apt comparison. Prince would have recorded the song around June 21, , when a year-old Black man named Wayne Williams was arrested for the murders of two of the adult victims; police presumed that Williams was also responsible for the other killings, and the cases were ultimately closed. Recovering academic.

Kicking version of one of my favorite joints off of Controversy. The end of it I imagine is Prince in a spaceship with the door open performing a guitar solo as he leaves the planet!!!!!!!!!!! Technically, this is a live version from the Controversy Tour. That said, it is indeed excellent. I'd say it's subjective. It has elements of punk but overall I personally wouldn't class it as punk. Having spent the majority of my adult life married to a punk rocker, I know that my husband wouldn't even consider this to be punk rock, however, it does have some of the basic elements so I guess it is debateable. Anyway, does it really matter? It's a cracking tune either way. And, if I'm not mistaken, it's from the New Orleans Show right?
Hardly standard fare for two top ten singles in the pop music charts. This propensity for unusual lyrical subject matter on the part of Prince, was a constant throughout his musical output. The track principally details the incestuous lust the sixteen-year-old speaker feels towards his older sister and contains sexual descriptions that even now, almost forty years later, would most likely shock a large number of listeners. However, it was not merely in the lyrical department that Prince tested the boundaries of what a commercially successful pop song could be. While, the lyrical content of Dirty Mind is certainly left of field to say the least, musically it is a far more conservative affair. Certainly fusing these disparate genres is no mean feat. To answer this question, one must look to the follow-up album to Dirty Mind, released the following year entitled Controversy
