The SEX OF IT (BFTP Version is Awesome)

Awesome Version on BFTP. I passed over it assuming it would just be the same.

I always loved this song but this take sit up another notch.

Nice take on the song, good to have it, but I still prefer the 3:23 take leaked many year ago (Moonraker's "Fantasia").

That sounds full and more accomplished than this one.

I have to say, there are a lot of surprises on this set. Plenty of rehashed stuff as usual from Eye, but a big percentage of impressive new stuff, too.

Surprisingly so. I'd like to see a full breakdown, because I might not be able to listen to the whole thing for quite a while, and I'd like to know what I need to make sure to hear first.

Let me first say this...Until about 7 hours ago, as long as I've been a Prince fan and an active member of THIS and NUMEROUS other Prince fan community sites...I swear on everything I hold dear that I'd never heard this version...nor any other version of this song.

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

Iirc Prince loved what Kid Creole and the Coconuts did with the song. Prince and Kid Creole were good friends also. I loved this song back in the day even before I knew Prince wrote it.

I was going to say I like Kid Creole version and they both are similar to what other.
Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

I honestly don't know...so that's about as true to me as anything else that's been said about Prince since April 21, 2016. shrug

All I do know purely from listening to Prince's version that I heard for the very first time today...is KCatC's version shouldn't have NEVER happened.

Kid Creole was actually was second prefered artist during some years in the 80s, and it was super exiting to hear about the collaboration. However i never got well into this song, it's one of Creole's weaker singles.

I'm really not trying to diss on Kid Creole. But being a person that only heard this song at all, just a couple of days ago...all I'm trying to say is...

This song SHOULD have been officially released...as I just heard it...by Prince! Along with a

"label funded" music video of Prince performing it! hammer

The Sex of it came out in 1990 so if Prince had released it it likely would have sounded the very same, all Graffiti Bridge era bells and whistles and a T.C. Ellis rap on it. We'd still be digging out the bootleg marvelling at how much better the earlier version was.
