Housequake: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast

On Episode 91 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Julian Long returns to help me answer the primary question of the show. Does anybody know about the quake? Yeah! We do! I mean, really, really? Julian certainly helps guide me towards the Southern Baptist traditions that Prince was leaning heavily on as Camille, the pulpit-pounding funk exhorter in “Housequake.” It’s the brand new groove going ’round, so grab your dancing shoes and make sure to hydrate before the aftershock hits.

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!
