In many ways Prince borrowed from other artists, as already stated above...



Robert Palmer - Cream is Addicted to Love...





always thought "U Got the Look" was his way of taking the vibe of "Addicted to Love" and making it into a Prince song (it also sounds like the same sessions as the music in "Bob George" with the chord progression and guitar improv up front throughout.)



I thought Cream was a riff off of "Bang a Gong" the original... which interestingly was covered by The Power Station with Robert Palmer singing. But their remake took it into different territory in a very cool way.



i think Cream sounds more like one T Rex song



Right, "Bang a Gong"

"Cream" may be inspired by "Get It On" (song title) by T Rex nod

I'm listening to that one, and I can hear a similiarity in the slower pacing and space between lyrics... but "Bang a Gong" is truly more the inspiration. The lyrics are directed to "you"... include "You're dirty sweet and you're my girl" related to "You're filthy cute and baby you know it"

I can hear Prince singing, "I'm gonna sue, sue yea..."

I saw a weird cartoon on YT where "Prince" keeps saying he is going to sue some guy... like "you owe me $5" LOL

Even The Power Station had it listed correctly, IMO:

So that is the reason why Sussudio is one of my favorite PC's song is because of the Purple Flavor mixed in the song. biggrin
