On Episode 108 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Rhonda Nicole and I discuss the lyrics to the sometimes flattering but often disturbing “Cindy C.” The song comes off as a plea for attention from supermodel Cindy Crawford, but it also sounds desperate and a bit cruel. Like most Prince songs, any cringeworthy lyric blows are softened by a slammin’ groove and a dope, if plagiarized, rap by Cat Glover.
Make sure to check out Rhonda’s music on Spotify, Bandcamp, or through her website, rhondanicole.com.
Check out the Press Rewind discord at discord.gg/f8Ueuym 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!
