On Episode 31 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, blogger Zachary Hoskins (princesongs.org) joins me to talk about the state of U.S. and Soviet Union relations in 1981, presidential assassination attempts, the Nicaraguan Sandinistas and Prince’s stab at political commentary on “Ronnie, Talk to Russia” from his Controversy 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!
