On episode 155 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, I briefly talk about the sweet, inoffensive Rockabilly track “You’re All I Want” from the 1999 Super Deluxe.
“I’ve never been sweet on candy, but you’re as sweet as they come.”
A pleasant little ditty about an intense and all-encompassing attraction. The subject doesn’t need anything but this person’s love (and body), but it’s all very innocently written and performed. When stacked up against the other towering tracks on the 1999 Super Deluxe, it doesn’t compare. However, there’s nothing unpleasant here, and this Rockabilly number is still cool.
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!
