This is a gem. Am I mistaken or is there a longer version of this song? I could swear that on a dusty tape somewhere, first obtained during the late 80's, early 90s, I have a version which includes call and response between Prince and Wendy/Lisa? Or did I dream that?

The 'longer' version was already released on the 'Bright Lights Big City' original soundtrack album.

Is a wicked song, i love it. It should have been included on SOTT, although i don't understand most of the lyrics. It sounds like a cartoon soundtrack.

You hit the nail on the head...I have tried to make my wife (and a few others) understand why it's so great. She/they just doesnt dig it disbelief

Make it so, Number One...

This must be the longer version I was thinking of...can't think why I thought the shorter version was on the movie soundtrack...hey ho.

The uncredited backround vocals are attributed to Jill Jones on PrinceVault:

http://www.princevault.co...=Good_Love

The longer version has the references to 'Good Love Part II' starting at around the 3'38" mark.

However, almost all vocal interplay appears on both versions, even after the reference in the longer version to Part II, such as:

Technicolor junkie in a funky Square (yeah)
Good love talking when U're kissing me there (yeah)
Gustav Mahler jamming on the box (yeah, yeah)
Teenage junkie got his foot on the rock, get off!

The shorter 'Crystal Ball' version (referred to as the alternate version on PrinceVault) edits out the Part II reference but has the coda of urban sounds tagged on.

Yes. The reason is Camille. cool



He most likely had to edit it on "Crystal Ball" 4 legal reasons, but the version on "Bright Lights" obviously sounds more complete.

Still a great tune either way.

Good love, U got a

Baby, in the heat of the night
U know what 2 do
Good love, U got a

Cherry pie, apple kisses
Everything is cool

Technicolor children in Picadilly Square
Whisper words, erotica, when U kiss me there
Gustav Mahler #3 is jamming on the box
I'll have another glass of U, this time on the rocks

4th of July in every stroke
A symphony of light and sound
Oh, I want 2 die from all the smoke
Fire breaks out when U're around

Good love, U got a yeah
Baby, in the heat of the night
U know what 2 do
Good love, U got a yeah
Cherry pie, apple kisses
Everything is cool

It brings a flash 2 my heart just the thought of U
Plethora of euphoria in everything U do
Any place 2 zero, U are number 1
Baby, in the heat of the night, U're my favorite fun

U and I in each others arms (U and I - each others arms)
Here is another world (Here I'm protected)
Here I'm protected from all harm
Only the naked, boy and girl

Good love, yeah!
Baby, in the heat of the night
U know what 2 do
Good love, yeah (Ooh)
Cherry pie, apple kisses
Everything is cool, cool, cool (Cool)

Alright, we go'n say good love
Right here (Good love!)
Yeah
Gustav Mahler #3 jamming on the box
U wanna rock' (Why not')

(Good love) - Yeah (Yeah, yeah)
Oh baby, in the heat of the night
U know what 2 do, don't cha'
Good love, yeah (Yeah, yeah)
Cherry pie, apple kisses
Everything is cool, cool
Every little funky damn thing is kickin'! (Good love)

Oh my Lord (Oh my Lord)
My Lord (My Lord)
(Good love, yeah)
Baby, U got the, U got the, U got the good love, yeah
In the heat of the night
U know it's alright (Yeah)
Good love, yeah
Good love, honey baby
Good love, yeah yeah yeah (Yeah)
Cherry pie, apple kisses
Everything is cool, everything is cool
Cool

Come on
That's how I like it, come on

Technicolor junkie in a funky square (Yeah)
Good love talkin' when U kissin' me there (Yeah)
Gustav Mahler jamming on the box (Yeah, yeah)
Teenage junkie got his foot on the rock get off!
U gotta, U gotta get good love
Good love
U gotta, U gotta get good love
Yeah, good love
Gustav

For some reason 'Fall in Love 2nite' reminds me of 'Good Love'.

I happen to enjoy both.

Shoot me if you must wink

I called "Fall in Love 2 Nite" new millennium Camille in my review of it on my blog. That was just what I thought at the time. But I wouldn't compare it to "Good Love." That's cool, that's your interpretation.

I don't see how it would have helped: it was still a copyright infringement on WB's master tape. My guess is that it had to do with each disc on CB "having" to be 50mn long. Or maybe for some reason Prince felt that this new edit was better, we know from bootlegs that most released songs were edited one way or another before release.

Prince is not saying "Part II".

Prince is speaking a bit of French like in "Girls n Boys".

It's "partout", which means "everywhere" in French.
