On Episode 56 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Erica Thompson (APurpleDayInDecember.com) and I talk about the various interpretations of one of the more surprisingly complex songs from Purple Rain. “I Would Die 4 U” has fascinating lyrical content (and a pretty damn catchy beat and dance moves) so we try to cover as many angles as we can when discussing what Prince may have been thinking about when writing this song.
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!
