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.
“Tonight, I’m gonna be your fantasy.”
Prince can’t wait any longer. It’s time to put all the games aside and get busy, even if it means doing it on the floor. If you want to learn to speak fluent pillow talk, “Scandalous” is your Rosetta Stone (another banger Chris Lacy line). Let your imagination run wild for this slow jam masterpiece, and don’t sleep on the music video either.
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!
