Tamborine

I know there have been threads on this song, but I just get the vibe that he was trying to prove a point to Sheila E. with his drum playing on this track. Kind of like a "Come get some" kinda thing. Anybody else feel this way?

Whatever he wanted to prove, it's a dirty little funk song with an edge! cool

No doubt! I've been bumpin' it all night...not sure what made me want to pull it out again, but I'm loving it anyway!

Tamborine is the most genius track on ATWIAD, imo. Raspberry Beret is a close second. Tamborine has always been ignored by Prince and it sucks. He really pounds on those drums! The groove is sick.

its definately one of the most underrated Prince songs ever. I think that along with Lady Cab Driver, its the best example of Prince's funky drumming. I only wish he played this live.

I love that song, one of my favourites on Around The World In a Day.
