Is it Me or Does Fixurlifeup sound Nirvana-ish

This track has turned out to be one of my favorites on PE, but I can't help but think that it feels like a Nirvana-ish groove/vibe underneath it all. Anybody else get that?

It has a typical "grunge" guitar sound, if that's what you mean..

Change it one more time..

I'm not sure if I have the correct song as I've only listed to these cd's a few times, but that song reminds me of Jack White.

If anyone says "Prince sounds like Nirvana" three times in a row, the End Times will arrive.

So don't ever do this again!

I hear "Come As You Are" in the bassline. Maybe a live mash in the future?

Odd question: Do you think working with backing musicians that were... barely alive... in Prince's glory days, let alone Cobain's glory days... Do you think this may have allowed P to be more receptive to integrating such an interesting homage?

It sounds more like turds splashing in a toilet bowl with too much water so some of it splashes on your nuts and you're all like oh shit I got shit on my nuts. But it might just be me.

Ok disentangle ur panties ur sarcastic biznitches. i didnt SAY the song was as 'good' as Nirvana (and btw, they have some turds too). I was asking about the FEEL of it. Thanks for the HONEST replies, the rest... learn to read, eat a dick, take a pill or...whatever

Absolutely - considering Donna's influence, I imagine Prince revisited the Nirvana grunge scene prior to recording this track.

I love this song! Prince really put it in with this one - those bass chords are too fat!!!! Love it!!

Too bad the record is so inconsistent sad

yeahthat


possibly the worst song on the album. wish one of the girls had sung this and he'd put vocals on one of the other ones. generic and cliched when it was released a year and a half ago, even moreso on the album.

Why would Donna's influence cause Prince to revisit Nirvana? Have you seen her youtube videos? She is NOT a rock person.

Me too.. it fits the flow of the album well, and the production of the song actually sounds better than quite a few of the other tracks. It's a pretty solid track to me..

Change it one more time..
