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.

Check out the Press Rewind discord at and join us in discussing all things Prince.

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!
