On Episode 67 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Karen Shedrick & I chat about the lyrics to one of Prince’s most memorable and beloved ’80s tracks, “Raspberry Beret.” What new insight could possibly be gleaned from a song that everyone knows by heart? Well, how about some misheard lyrics? Or different interpretations of the song’s overarching theme (a song about losing virginity vs. a song about the first time with a new girl)? We try to cover it all in this episode!
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!
