On Episode 3 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, I dive into For You’s third track and the most well-known song from Prince’s debut album, “Soft & Wet.” Prince pushes the envelope, for 1978 at least, by including such a blatant sexual metaphor throughout the song. Also, I totally get the lyrics wrong (no thanks to the internet). Prince clears things up for us after I recorded, after the release of The Beautiful Ones memoir, & I correct my mistakes with some listener help on a future episode.
The goal of each episode of Press Rewind is to:
- Take a track by track look at the lyrical content of Prince’s discography
- Discuss my own interpretation of each song’s lyrics
- If submitted, discuss listener’s interpretations of each song’s lyrics
Thank you for joining me on this journey through Prince’s catalog!
