Prince Lyrics Podcast – Free



On Episode 43 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, author and blogger Laura Tiebert and I talk about the beautifully inspirational “Free” from Prince’s 1999 album. This track can be a deeply personal one depending on your perspective and background. Hopefully, we do the lyrics justice and provide an opportunity for the listener to apply their own definition of freedom as they listen.

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!

On Episode 42 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Josh Norman from The Mountains & the Sea podcast joins me discuss the lyrics (and delivery!) of melancholy, sparse and emotionally fraught track, “Something In The Water (Does Not Compute)” from Prince’s 5th album, 1999.

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

Prince Lyrics Podcast – Automatic



On Episode 41 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, I am joined by first-time podcast guest Farooq Ansari to discuss the cold, robotic funk of “Automatic” from Prince’s 5th album, 1999. Is Prince descending into madness over his inability to shake off a bad relationship? What does the ending mean? Of course, we don’t really know, but we sure had fun offering up some thoughts on this standout track!

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

Prince Lyrics Podcast – D.M.S.R.



On Episode 40 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Christy Norman from The Mountains & the Sea and Killer Fun podcasts joins me discuss the straightforward (dance! music! sex! romance!) and arcane (Who is Jamie Starr? Why is there a woman crying for help?) in the epic party that is “D.M.S.R.” from Prince’s 5th album, 1999.

The goal of each episode of Press Rewind is to:

  • Take a track by track look at the lyrical content of Prince’s discography
