Scandalous: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast



On Episode 132 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Chris Lacy joins me to talk about one of Prince’s most effective sexy-time ballads, “Scandalous,” from the Batman soundtrack. This quiet storm of seduction (thanks for the killer phrase, Chris) is a top-tier baby-making song from the man who has a whole subgenre of slow-jams of this kind.

Lemon Crush: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast



On Episode 131 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, new podcast guest Kevin Evans and I try to make sense of the cryptic and possibly double-entendre-filled Batman track, “Lemon Crush.” Is our interpretation train of thought for the lyrics framed by our gender? That’s for the listener to decide; however, Prince may have had several influences in mind when coming up with the lyrics to this upbeat song.

Vicki Waiting: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast



On Episode 129 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Julian Long and I attempt to make sense of a song that Prince wrote for a budding ingenue but repurposed for the Batman soundtrack, “Vicki Waiting.” We toss around ideas of what the lyrics could have been in its original incarnation and debate whether this is a Bruce Wayne song at its heart or if it’s more suitable as a Joker song. The wait is over.

The Arms of Orion: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast



On Episode 127 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Jerry Bonner and I look to the stars for inspiration as we discuss the Prince and Sheena Easton duet, “The Arms of Orion” from Batman. This love ballad relies heavily on astrological metaphors, so join us in the Sea of Tranquility and stay for the playful keyboard outro.

Electric Chair: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast



On Episode 126 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Karen Shedrick returns to the show to chat with me about the sexy, dangerous, and rockin’ “Electric Chair.” This Batman track gets into some sci-fi thought police territory as a song about the sin of lustful thoughts. Plus, it’s sung from the perspective of the Joker, so there’s a whole extra dynamic at play. Absolve your guilt with us and check out the episode.

The Future: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast



On Episode 125 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, new podcast guest Joe Andrews joins me to talk about the opening song from the Batman album, “The Future.” Prince’s dystopian vision, sung from the perspective of the Dark Knight himself, sets the tone for the project with its stark electronic drum beat and foreboding synths. “I’ve seen the future, and it will be.”
