On Episode 51 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, I am joined by new podcast guest, Julian Long, to geek out on the sweet ballad “Take Me With U” from Purple Rain. Is Apollonia able to reach that place in Prince/The Kid that is calling out her name? Does Prince/The Kid sweep Apollonia off her feet and take her away, possibly to a frigid Minnesota lake? We dissect this classic song from the soundtrack and hope to uncover new aspects along the way.
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!
