Prince Lyrics – Controversy



On Episode 27 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Karen Shedrick & I kick off the Controversy album by discussing the myriad of themes Prince addresses in this classic title track. Themes not only meant for this one particular song, but themes that permeated the entire album.

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 along with any guest I may have
  • If submitted, discuss listener’s interpretations of each song’s lyrics

Thank you for joining me on this journey through Prince’s catalog!

  1. I’m surprised you guys left out his phrase right after “Life is just a game, we’re all just the same.” He then asks, “Do you want to play?”. This is also very intriguing.

    1. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve heard that being said in all the times I’ve listened to this song! Had I known that was there, I absolutely would have mentioned it.
