Tick Tick Bang performance in Grafitti Bridge

Do you think Prince wanted to make it the Darling Nikki of Grafitti Bridge?

Yes but it didn't come across like DN did. The demo of tick tick bang is better as well IMO.

I agree. I prefer the 1981 version too, but the GB version isn't that bad!

Prince wanted to do a lot of things with Graffiti Bridge that he never accomplished.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Simply a disaster.

A highly embarassing clip for one of his worst songs ever.

I don’t hate the later version, but the original is far superior in my opinion… a completely different beast. It almost sounds like early 80s Throbbing Gristle. In fact, it would be one of the first tracks I’d like to see given an official release.

I had to hear the 1981 version before I could stand the GB version but now I'm quite fond of it, I think it's pretty decent. Totally different beast to the 1981 though obviously.

It's so cheesy, I love it. I can watch that performance over and over again.
The movie is cringeworthy, but it works as a collection of musicvideos. I always skip the dialogues and only watch the performances.

I watched GB earlier today and saw Tick Tick Bang and oh yeah it's nothing like Darling Nikki. He does look sexy in some parts of this performance. I was just wondering today why he chose this as the battle song against the Time in that movie. Wrong move Kid.
