    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    An analysis of your ouevre that arrives at "shit provocateur" is accurate, with reference to most of what you post. Personally, I'd add "...and chronic indulger in intellectual masturbation", but that's just me.

    Interesting.

    You're attempting, while decrying the supposed same trait in others, to set the parameters of debate by referencing how the video might offend particular ethnic and cultural perspectives.

    What would have been more honest, would be to say that your own "textual analysis" of the video leads you to believe that it offends against particular ethnic and cultural perspectives that you're aware of.

    My own view of the video is that if you take it in context with what was produced for other artists at the time, it's much of a muchness in most of the bells it rings.

    The daft thing is that most people who attempt cultural analyses, tend to avoid using the language of the academy, as it's a turn-off, even to other members of the academy. "Accessibility" is where a lot of social science is at, not chucking in "discursive fields of interest" because it makes you pop a boner. ;)

    We literally do not have enough time on this planet to argue with ignorant people - the ill-informed particularly annoy me....

    Back to the music, here is his most 'Mc Cartneyesque' song, The Morning Papers, written direct from that songbook. I'm not crazy for this song but its real 'Mc Cartney classic' and worth checking on this link (sorry, horrendous, Prince's estate forbid all his great music being on youtube). Its actually very jazzy on the album...anyway Look from 9.05 mins onwards

    Oh, believe me, there is so much argument in the Prince camp, about his 'Beatles-style' if just for a while....(probably 20 songs at least...) Raspberry Beret is a big 'casualty' shall we say? In fact, Around the World in a Day has been dubbed his Srgt Pepper....

    Christopher Tracys Parade - definitely Prince's Magical Mystery Tour....

    I do think 'Raspberry Beret' is quite similar to 'I am the Walrus,' in its Hironymous Bosch distorted style, frequent use of minor keys and string arrangements.

    For folks that might be interested in whether Prince was a hippy, be sure to check out '7' on spotify....

    'If I had a harem (Blues in C).' You can see what an extraordinary blues guitarist Prince was if he chose to be (infamous Lovesexy dvd, Dortmund 88) <3

    Anyone interested in Prince....some podcasts here. The Princologists on the Parade and Musicology podcasts speak my language. These homies go through a few of his albums, track by track with some great analysis.

    Rather intense but highly recommended, a review from one of his fairly modern albums, Musicology from 2004

    Bought this from a local artist. Only a print, but I would've got the canvas if I'd has a spare grand. Goes well with the newly painted wall I think :)

    Prince's music is a refuge away from the horrors of losing people. These things play on my mind all the time, and his music helps me to get by and cope.

    But alone, I cry. Jenny and Drew didnt know this song but they would love this choice. We were like a little family for our short time, and i remain heartbroken till the end of my life.

    Prince is, and remains, the greatest all round artist of our generation. There is no one more skilled, all round perfect than Prince.
