The Emancipation Era! Prince was letting the world know (unlike he had ever done so publicly prior), through songs and interviews, that he was a man in love with his wife/muse and content with his life's direction.

Excerpt taken from USA Today article November 12, 1996:

He gazes at a huge photo of Mayte on his wall. She inhabits his music and conversation and inspired Paisley Park's conversion from corporate austerity to a kaleidoscopic fun house with cloud-mottled blue walls. No wonder he's ditched Prince, the rake whose salty tunes celebrated promiscuity. The Artist is plum bewitched and happily monogamous. "There's always been a dichotomy in my music: I'm searching for a higher plane, but I want the most out of being on earth," he says. "When I met Mayte, I looked at my situation and wondered what I was running from. Am I lonely? Is that why I surround myself with so many friends? "I don't think I knew the answer until I got married and made the commitment: 'I will take care of you forever.' When she walked down the aisle, and I looked into the eyes of this woman-child, I could see our future and the eyes of our child. At moments like that, you are floating. There is no ego."

prince is one of my favourite Prince albums. Mayte inspired some beautiful songs and/or videos from this album.

Love 2 The 9s video

.

U say that u love me like river
A river u say'll never run dry
I'd rather hear u say 4 ever
Instead of a smile I'd rather see u cry
Don't use the magical
Mysterious, intoxicating, joy fantastic
Fascinating word called love
Unless u love me 2 the 9's
This is the only kind of love
That I've been dreaming of
The kind of love that takes over your
Body, mind, and soul
Love 2 the 9's
Baby, (2 the 9's)
I wanna be loved 2 the 9's (2 the 9's)
I wanna be loved, sugar (2 the 9's)
I wanna be loved 4 all time (4 all time)

Baby, take a real good look at my face
Cuz honey, it just might be the last time
Maybe u should have played an ace
Instead u played the queen
U'd be better off cheatin' than tryin'
2 read my mind

Don't use the magical
Mysterious, intoxicating, joy fantastic
Fascinating word called love
Unless u love me 2 the 9's
This is the only kind of love
That I've been dreaming of
The kind of love that takes over your
Body, mind, and soul
Love 2 the 9's
Baby, (2 the 9's)
I wanna be loved 2 the 9's (2 the 9's)
I wanna be loved, sugar (2 the 9's)
I wanna be loved 4 all time (4 all time)

Love me 2 the (9's)

Stay awake 4 4teen hours
Listen 2 the band play New Power Soul
We got 2 get with this
Dancing 2 the beat 'til we lose our mind control

Can I get a witness?
I'm lookin' 4 a lover with a body that says some mo'
I want 2 see the booty boom before I even let
Her get close enough 2 smell perfume
I'm lookin' 4 a PhD
Ass piled high and deep u see
I can't help it - like a honey 2 a bee -
If the booty boom she gonna go with me
And then T. will whip out a 37 questionnaire and
Machine gun a sister like he just don't care
Machine gun a sister like he just got 2
Just got 2, just got 2 - hit it

Name - "Arabia"
Age - "Jailbait"
Occupation, if any - "Sex symbol to many, but I really got a beautiful mind"
Fine, Fine. What sign u are - "Stop sign"
Well, what's your favorite car - "Green Rolls-Royce"
How many kids u got - "Egads, I'm shocked!"
How many books u read - "Is Hemmingway dead?"
Well who's the President now - "Does it matter? Wow"
Then how u gonna make that booty boom?
"How I'm gonna make that booty boom?"
I say how u gonna make that booty boom
"How I'm gonna make that booty boom..."
"Step back, give a girl some room"

Dance girl - lemme see the booty boom
Dance girl - lemme see the booty boom
Dance girl - lemme see the booty boom
Dance girl - lemme see the booty boom
Dance girl - lemme see the booty boom
Dance girl - lemme see the booty boom
Dance girl - lemme see the booty boom
Dance girl - lemme see the booty boom

Yo, check this out
Would u hug me on a crowded street?
Could u keep your cool if I washed your feet?
U soul a bath
What if I gave it, your body I ask
How long would u save it?
Could u lie down on a bed of thorns
While I drink your ocean dry?
And if we said we loved each other
Instead of smilin', would u cry?
Could u kiss 3 times with your dress upside
Downstroked and laughin'
Would u stay awake 4 4teen hours
Listenin' 2 the grass grow?
I ask thee would u, could u,
Would u love me 2 the 9's (I'll love u 2 the 9's)
Would u, could u,
Will u love me for all time? (I'll love u 4 all time)
Would u, could u,
Will u love me 2 the 9's (I'll love u 2 the 9's)

(love 2 the 9's)
(love 4 all time)
Wanna be loved, sugar (love 2 the 9's)
Wann be loved 4 all time (love 4 all time)

Love me 2 the 9's (2 the 9's)

I wanna be loved 2 the 9's (2 the 9's)
4 all time

2 the 9's, 2 the 9's, 2 the 9's
2 the 9's, 2 the 9's, 2 the 9's

The Morning Papers

.

Themorningpapers_single.jpg

He realized that she was new 2 love
Naive in every way
Every schoolboy's fanstasy she was
That's why he had 2 wait
If he poured his heart into a glass
And offered it like wine
She could drink and be back in time for the morning papers
They could take a walk down the oceanside
Make a wish on every wave
They could find a carousel
And ride or kiss in every cave
They could contemplate the entire universe
Or just one star
Or just how far was the walk 4 the morning papers

Let me play it for u one time, oh oh
Well
Hey
Shucks

Why is age more than a number when it comes 2 love?
Should we ask the ones who speculate
When they don't know what it's made of?
Should we ask the moonlight on your face
Or the raindrops in your hair
Or should we ask the man who wrote it there in the morning papers?

Should we ask the moonlight on your face
Or the raindrops in your hair
Should we ask the man who wrote it there in the morning papers?

Somebody help me sing it now

La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la

Oh yes

La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la

Go play

La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la

Ok


Insert badass guitar solo here guitar

Damn U

.

Damn u, u're so fine
Seems 2 happen 2 me each and every time we make love
I can't hold back
It's like having a hundred million little heart attacks
Damn u, baby u're so fine
Damn this kooky love affair
All I ever want 2 do is play in your hair
2 people crazy in love
Into 1 another like a hand in a glove
Damn this kooky love affair
(damn u)

Like animals just born 2 breed
Come 2 think about cha baby
U're my only need
I'm on fire 'til u come and put me out
All I'm trying 2 say is that my psychadelic shouts
When u damn me
Damn u
When I'm in your arms it's all that I can do
When we're makin' love, I can't hold back
It's like having a hundred million little heart attacks
Damn u, baby u're so fine

Damn u, baby u're so fine

That one's dedicated 2 all the lovers
That was beautiful
This one's dedicates 2 the whores
What you just...
Pimprag, check (pimprag)
Just once will you talk to me?
Tootsie pop, check (tootsie pop)
Not at me, not around me, not through me?
Raise your cane (cane)
What do you believe in?
God
Who is your God?
U
Is this reality or just another facade?

The Max

.

Where are u?
U can relax now, the Max is in control
Go... yeah yeah

When my back is so far back it's on the other side of the wall
When half a chance is all I get if I get a chance at all
When the going gets tougher than the tough can go
I grind the axe - that's when I go, I go, I go 2 the max. I go

The max - Yo baby, tell me where the party's at
The max - Yo baby, I wanna shuffle the cards in that stack (I go)
The max - We can dance if u want 2, but I might break yo back
The max - More funk for your buck u can bet on that

When they tell me 2 walk a straight line
I put on crooked shoes
When they tell me that I can't live forever
I pay some overdues (Kick it)
When they start makin' up a crazy rule
That's when I break a back
Cuz when I go, I go, I go 2 the max. I go

The max - Yo baby (oh yeah), tell me where the party's at
The max - Yo baby, I wanna shuffle the cards in that stack (oh, yeah yeah)
The max - We can dance if u want 2 (ooh yeah), but I might break yo back
(2 the max)
The max - More funk for your buck u can bet on that

Let's go
Let's go
Let's go
Let's go
Oh, yeah yeah!

(Dig it) When my body starts to shiver from the chill of
The scarlett sweat
When my lips eclipse the sun and the moon
Reflecting from the wet
When the blood of my love outraces
Every one of the stallions in your pack - that's when
U go, u go, u go 2 the max. U go

The max (2 the max)
The max (oooh, get funky)
The max (get-get-get funky) (2 the max)
The max (get funky)

Let' go
I think I'm gonna like this

Let's go (dance)
I wanna dance
Let's go
Let's go
Let's go (Oh yeah yeah!)

I go 2 the max
I'm not afraid (oh my god)
I wanna dance

Then listen -
When the going gets tougher than the tough can go
I grind the axe - that's when I go, I go, I go 2 the max. I go

The max - Yo baby, tell me where the party's at
The max - Yo baby, I wanna shuffle the cards in that stack
The max - We can dance if u want 2, but I might break yo back
The max - More funk for your buck u can bet on that

This is the max

Dear love, dear love, dear love
Forgive me 4 my sins
But u left me in such a cold cold world to suffer in (kick it)
And Contrary 2 popular belief
Even though one's life is brief
If u go there once u
Come again and again and
Let's go

(I'm so sorry for u...)

This is the max

Blue Light

.

Oh well, here we are again
Lookin' 4 something 2 get us in the mood
I tell each and every one of my friends
That the love we make is really pretty rude
But they don't believe me cuz it's written all over my face
Like Evian and the deep blue sea
U and me got different taste
U like it in the dark but I like a
Blue light
Can u turn on a Blue light
Then cuddle up 2 me So tight
Just u and me All night
Alright,Blue light
Can u turn on a Blue light
Then everything will be Alright
Oh, Blue light

U say u wish I was shy
I always take a simple thing and push it way 2 far
But baby, that's the problem with u and I
U say not in public but I say in the car
Say, we need to get wild again like it was when we first met
Close your eyes and count 2 ten and when u open 'em -
I'll be standing naked with nothing but a smile on

Blue light
Can u turn on a Blue light
Then cuddle up 2 me So tight
Just u and me All night
Alright,Blue light
Can u turn on a Blue light
Then everything will be Alright
Oh, Blue light

I'll be 117
U'll be still sayin' "Baby not 2 nite"
It's easy 2 see us on the cover of a magazine
"Double heart attack, couple both die in a fight"
Oh Baby! I don't wanna cross that road cuz I love u 2 much
I'd do anything just 2 heat up your cold touch
Anything I would do, but up until u tell me 2

Blue light
Can u turn on a Blue light
Then cuddle up 2 me So tight
Just u and me All night
Alright,Blue light
Can u turn on a Blue light
Then everything will be Alright
Oh, Blue light

Blue light
Can u turn on a Blue light (cuddle up 2 me)
So tight
Cuddle up next 2 me baby
U and me all night, alright Blue light
Light (u turn on a) Blue light
And every thing will be Alright
Oooh Blue light
Blue light
Blue light
Blue light
Blue light
Blue light

Pleased to meet you... Hope you've guessed my name. For the first time since God alone knows when, the artist formerly known as Prince talks exclusively and extensively about identity, insecurity, George Michael, Nelson Mandela, ballet, boogie, opera, orgasm, freedom and the future. "I follow the advice of my spirit," he tells Adrian Deevoy.

His name is not Prince. And he is not funky. His name is Albert. And he is lurching across the dancefloor in search of accommodating company. Slightly balding and chunkier than he looks in photographs, he moors behind a gyrating female and clumsily interfaces.

Up on the stage another man whose name is not Prince says, "This is dedicated to Prince Albert, the funkiest man in Monaco." It's a wonder he can get the words out with his tongue buried so deep in his cheek. Prince Albert beams and grinds arhythmically on. Prince laughs, throws a swift shape and stops the funk on the one. It's his party and he'll lie if he wants to.

One hundred and twenty people have been invited to the Stars &alt; Bars club in Monte Carlo for this most exclusive of celebrations. The champagne is free, the spirits are freer and the house band is possibly the best live act on the planet. You probably remember them as Prince And The New Power Generation. They're still the NPG but he's not Prince any more. He is 0{+> (to give him his full title). Sir Hieroglyphicford for short.

Ursula Andress is at the bar, sipping sensually at a flute of champagne. A few generations and a couple of yards along, Claudia Shiffer is doing likewise. It's that sort of a do. Everyone is wearing impossibly shiny shoes and gold epaulettes. If God weren't resting his suave old soul, you'd expect David Niven to walk in with Peter Wyngarde on his arm. Without trying too hard, you can imagine Fellini standing in the corner saying, "Christ, this is weird!" Quit what the gnarled jet-setters are making of the music programme is anyone's guess. At 1.15am the Barry Manilow tape was exchanged for a stripped down five-piece (and non- stop disco dancer Mayte - pronounced My Tie - Garcia) who have just embarked upon the most daunting funk experience of a lifetime. A knot of maybe 15 perfumed debs cluster around the lip of the stage. Naturally you join them and find yourself standing so close to the Artist Formerly Known As Prince (AFKAP to use the diminutive) that you can hear him singing unamplified behind his microphone.

Seven

.

All 7 and we'll watch them fall
They stand in the way of love
And we will smoke them all
With an intellect and a savoir-faire
No one in the whole universe
Will ever compare
I am yours now and u are mine
And together we'll love through
All space and time, so don't cry
One day all 7 will die
All 7 and we'll watch them fall
They stand in the way of love
And we will smoke them all
With an intellect and a savoir-faire
No one in the whole universe
Will ever compare
I am yours now and u are mine
And together we'll love through
All space and time, so don't cry
One day all 7 will die

And I saw an angel come down unto me
In her hand she holds the very key
Words of compassion, words of peace
And in the distance an army's marching feet (1,2,3,4 - 1,2,3,4)
But behold, we will watch them fall

And we lay down on the sand of the sea
And before us animosity will stand and decree
That we speak not of love only blasphemy
And in the distance, 6 others will curse me
But that's alright, (that's alright)
4 I will watch them fall(1,2,3,4,5,6,7)

All 7 and we'll watch them fall
They stand in the way of love
And we will smoke them all
With an intellect and a savoir-faire
No one in the whole universe
Will ever compare
I am yours now and u are mine
And together we'll love through
All space and time, so don't cry
One day all 7 will die

[(Just how old)]

And we will see a plague and a river of blood
And every evil soul will surely die in spite of
Their 7 tears, but do not fear
4 in the distance, 12 souls from now
U and me will still be here - we will still be here

There will be a new city with streets of gold
The young so educated they never grow old
And a, there will be no death 4 with every breath
The voice of many colors sings a song
That's so bold
Sing it while we watch them fall

All 7 and we'll watch them fall
They stand in the way of love
And we will smoke them all
With an intellect and a savoir-faire
No one in the whole universe
Will ever compare
I am yours now and u are mine
And together we'll love through
All space and time, so don't cry
One day all 7 will die

(Just how old)
(Just how old)
(Just how old)

I loved them as a couple. I often wonder if they might've stayed together longer had he not gotten mixed up with the JW's.

The Emancipation Era! Prince was letting the world know (unlike he had ever done so publicly prior), through songs and interviews, that he was a man in love with his wife/muse and content with his life's direction. Excerpt taken from USA Today article November 12, 1996: He gazes at a huge photo of Mayte on his wall. She inhabits his music and conversation and inspired Paisley Park's conversion from corporate austerity to a kaleidoscopic fun house with cloud-mottled blue walls. No wonder he's ditched Prince, the rake whose salty tunes celebrated promiscuity. The Artist is plum bewitched and happily monogamous. "There's always been a dichotomy in my music: I'm searching for a higher plane, but I want the most out of being on earth," he says. "When I met Mayte, I looked at my situation and wondered what I was running from. Am I lonely? Is that why I surround myself with so many friends? "I don't think I knew the answer until I got married and made the commitment: 'I will take care of you forever.' When she walked down the aisle, and I looked into the eyes of this woman-child, I could see our future and the eyes of our child. At moments like that, you are floating. There is no ego."

Nice interview! Thanks for sharing.I love Emancipation! Especially disc 2


Prince also favored Disc 2!

Excerpt taken from UK Hello, December 1996:

Q - Do you have a favourite song?

A - Not really, but I like the second CD best. I could say "The Holy River" -- right in the middle after 5 romantic numbers -- is my favourite, but then I also like "Let's have a baby." Just before our wedding, Mayte spent a few days away from our home so I made a lot of changes to our house -- especially in our bedroom, where I placed a crib. It was beautiful. Then, on our wedding night, Mayte was still wearing her long white dress when I brought her into the room and played her "Let's have a baby" for the first time. She couldn't stop crying -- it was an unforgettable moment.

Prince says this about his wife from the same article:

Q - Do you think your wife has had a positive influence on your life
?

A - Yes, certainly. She is the woman of my life, my best friend. We were made to be together and all the ingredients were there to unite us. Our fathers have the same name and our mother's names are similar. My family's name was Nelson and hers was Nells. We're definitely made for each other. With her, I've learnt what faith is and I no longer worry.

The most heart breaking piece of work product resulting from Prince and Mayte's union....Comeback - 1998 The Truth

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Walking up the stairs
Just the afternoon
Sweet wind blew
Not a moment 2 soon
(Hoo) I cry when I realized
That sweet wind was U

Spirits come and spirits go
Some stick around 4 the aftershow
Don't have 2 say I miss U (don't have 2 say I miss U)
Cause I think U already know
If U ever lose someone
Dear 2 U
Never say the words their gone
They'll come back, yeah
They'll come back, yeah yeah
They'll come back
Tears go here
Tears go here
Tears go here
Tears go here
