On Episode 136 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Dr. Tara Betts & I talk through the lyrics to “I Love U In Me,” a B-side from the Batman era. This quiet storm ballad replaces Prince’s commonly used innuendos and metaphors with frank sexual language. We also ponder the intent of a strange analogy he uses for the chorus.
Dr. Betts’ published works, Refuse to Disappear, Break the Habit, and Arc & Hue, can be purchased using the below links.

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!
