On Episode 97 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Eloy Lasanta joins me to talk about the lyrics to the simple on the surface, but actually complex ballad “Forever In My Life.” Whether you prefer the original Sign o’ the Times album version, the Sign o’ the Times Super Deluxe “Early Vocal Run-Through” version with additional instrumentation, or the compelling, gospel stylings that Prince exhibited on the Sign o’ the Times concert movie, this track is a stand-out no matter what!

Physical copies of the debut album, In My Head, can be purchased directly from the Strays website or on Bandcamp.
Since I big-up Erica Thompson’s #PrinceTwitterThread on “Forever In My Life,” I’ve included a link to her thread here.

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!
