Leaving For New York/Nightingale/Rock Me, Lover: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast

I take a step back in time on episode 139 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast. A time before Prince was signed to Warner Bros. Records and a time before Prince even had a place of his own to live. I’ve journeyed back to 1976, when he was living at the Anderson home in Minneapolis, a recent high school graduate making home demos and practicing his craft. Part two of these rough around the edges home demo episodes will cover “Leaving For New York,” “Nightingale,” and “Rock Me, Lover.”

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!
