Nice! But isn't a track like this a little out of place on a set like this? I don't know if it was intended for a female singer, but maybe it would have fitted better on an Originals X set.

Interesting! Didn't expect this one!

Not a bad track, feels like Emotional Pump in a way. Very distinctly that production style he used going into 1987-1989. A bit be-boppy. Not my style but I love how it fits into the garden of SOTT.

A great song but I prefer it with Bonnie Raitt's vocals and with the extra instrumentation on that one. After all he did give this to her and intended it to sung by a woman.

This seems like an early version done as a guide vocal for her (the bit around 2:30 on seems very improvised rather than planned).

Thankfully it sounds good and they haven't massacred it with added echoes like on most of the songs on Originals.

This was first meant to be for The Hookers before Vanity 6, then later gave it to Bonnie Raitt eventually...

Also Apple Music. It will be available in all the usual places.

Listening now and I like it. Very much looking forward to next week and finally being able to listen through it all.

RIP sad

I wonder why the credits on YT say:

Slide Guitar: Bonnie Raitt

Vocals: Bonnie Raitt

I mean WTF? It's not Bonnie's version.

.

On a sidenote, as with Dear Michaelangelo, this is so gay lol lol lol

A solid song I like most was already familiar with.

Sounds great and grooves a long nicely. Probably will be one of least essential songs on the set for me but it has very tough competition. Also I suspect repeated plays will reward.

That horn line sounds very familiar... I'm sure he used it elsewhere, perhaps live in concert, just can't put my finger on it.

Correct - I thought so too then just figured out he used it in Controversy when it was played live in concert!

This could have been put on The Vault ...Old Friends 4 Sale.

I'm starting to really appreciate this. Really like the horns and organ.

The sound on this is great (headphones). I’m still blown away by how Prince was able to write songs for a wide variety of artists in their voice...I mean, it’s hard enough just to write a song, let alone for anyone else. It’s incredible that I can listen to this and imagine Bonnie Raitt singing it.

I never heard Bonnie Raitts version before, only the instrumental. So I looked up Bonnie's version. I much prefer Prince's version, but that's because I love his singing and generally, his songs don't work when sung by other people for me, with the possible exception of a few Time songs.

No I think it's pretty cool nod But also funny because unintended since these songs were written for females. I can't wait for Nasty Girl lol

Sounds like a new song. A groove covering up the song's overall weakness. I need a betta song.

This is the first thing I noticed. He was using that punchy hornline in "Controversy" since 1986. We probably first heard it in the Sheridan video. Seems he's mostly used something similar, if not the exact same thing, ever since.

The pre-chorus chords and arrangement remind me of something, too. I can't think what it is, though.

The song is cute overall. Feels more fleshed out, interesting.

The Horn line is the guitar line in James Brown's "soul Power"
