Soft and Wet: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast

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!
