Manic Monday: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast

On episode 179 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics PodcastDr. Tara Betts, author of Refuse to Disappear, returns to the show to help me chop up the “case of the Mondays” anthem Prince wrote, recorded, and intended for Apollonia 6 but ultimately gave to The Bangles, “Manic Monday.”

Check out the Press Rewind discord at and join us in discussing all things Prince.

Press Rewind Podcast can be found at and @PressRewindPod on Twitter/X & @PressRewindPrinceLyricsPod on Instagram. Facebook & YouTube links below.

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!
