Rearrange: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast



On episode 153 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, I try to “Rearrange” my brain around this 1999-era vault track that served as the basis for “Lady Cab Driver.” The lyrics for these two songs are nothing alike, but “Rearrange” does remind me of Prince’s earlier work.

Vagina: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast



On episode 152 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics PodcastI try to make heads or tails of the not very explicit except for the song title, “Vagina.” A garage rock anomaly about a “half-boy, half-girl” that has mesmerized our narrator. Did we get what we wanted with this vault track?
