Do U Lie?: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast



On Episode 84 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Karen Shedrick joins me again to discuss the lyrics to the one of the key tracks for the Under the Cherry Moon Soundtrack, largely due to its prominence in the film. We try to capture the song’s intent in the context of the movie while also looking at the lyrics as having a dual purpose.

The goal of each episode of Press Rewind is to:

Mountains: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast



On Episode 83 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Leslie Ballard and I chat about one of our favorites from the Parade album, the second single, “Mountains.” This superior collaboration with Wendy & Lisa is meant to uplift and bring joy to whoever hears it. We chat about some of the current events of 1985-1986 that led to writing the song’s lyrics and how its placement in the Under the Cherry Moon film was perfect for this banger.
