On Episode 68 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Snax (snaxonline.org), and I talk about masturbation…as it relates to Prince’s funky metaphor-filled “Tamborine” from his 7th album, Around the World In a Day. Some lines continue to confound us (“trolley cars?”) and lines that certainly make it clear Prince is in a sexual rut (“long days, lonely nights”), but we both agree the song is hilarious and deserves discussion.
You can find more about Snax & his music using the links below.
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!
