On episode 162 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, I am joined by Jack Riedy to discuss the overall themes of the 1999 and Purple Rain era vault track “Possessed,” as well as the subtle but important performance, musical and lyrical differences between the ’82 and ’84 versions.
Jack’s writing and podcast appearances can be found at jackriedy.com.

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!
