Love or Money: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast

On Episode 88 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Richard Cole (@RichardCole_NOW) from the Amari Purple Talk Podcast ( joins me to chat about the “Kiss” B-side, “Love or Money.” The song is notable as it scores the fun shopping montage scene in Under the Cherry Moon as well as winning the 1986 Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Original Song (for a motion picture).

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!

  1. Looking forward to hearing this episode… I picked this one up upon release (I was around 17 and heavily into Prince by this time thanks to the Purple Rain, ATWIAD, and all of their b-sides). Was a bit blown away by the creativity of the highly-pitched vocal track, and would play the 7″ on 45 and 33 1/3 speed. The 45 was the “normal” work but the 33 1/3 was like a slow blues song with Prince in his normal vocal range. Two songs in one.

    1. That’s cool, I haven’t tried playing my Love or Money 45 on 33 1/3 yet. Might go ahead and do that right now! Thanks for the suggestion. Hope you enjoy the episode as well.

      1. Hope you got to enjoy it on 45 speed, Jason! It was actually my preference back in the day.
