On Episode 39 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Erica Thompson (APurpleDayInDecember.com) joins me to break down the at times equally traditional, profane & religious (?!?!) “Let’s Pretend We’re Married” off Prince’s 1999 album. I also bring back Jerry Bonner to share a story about how he was blown away by the utterly shocking use of the “F” word to describe sex & how he decided to share this revelation with schoolmates.
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!
