Starfish and Coffee: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast

On Episode 94 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Karen Shedrick and I discuss the real story behind the whimsical, child-like story song, “Starfish and Coffee.” Who is Cynthia Rose anyway, and how was Prince able to take a few stories related to him by his girlfriend at the time and turn them into such a fun and strangely uplifting song?

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

Press Rewind Podcast can be found @PressRewindPod on Twitter & Instagram. Facebook & YouTube links below.

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!
