Play In the Sunshine: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast



On Episode 90 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Rhonda Nicole returns to talk to me about one of the more fun and funky songs to follow a dark and ominous opener in album track listing history. The ying to “Sign O’ the Times'” yang, it’s “Play in the Sunshine!”

Sign o’ the Times: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast



On Episode 89 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, the co-authors of The Rise of Prince: 1978-1988, Alex Hahn & Laura Tiebert join me to talk about “Sign o’ the Times.” This lead single from the double album of the same name used a ripped from the headlines approach to calling out troubling aspects of our society while also ensuring it stayed quirky enough to be a Prince track. Its sparse production was designed to highlight the song’s lyrics, so let’s dig in!
