Episode 167: Velvet Kitty Cat

On episode 167 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, I’m talking about something furry, cuddly, and fat – “Velvet Kitty Cat” from the Purple Rain Deluxe release. This innuendo-laden vault track likely intended for Vanity 6, gets petted and dissected.


“I’ll let U pet her, but then U gotta scat.”

Don’t let the title of the track fool you. This song has nothing to do with felines and the softness of their fur. Wait, you’re telling me you knew what the song would be about before listening to it because Prince wrote it? Well, aren’t you clever? Almost as clever as the cheeky songwriter himself.

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!
