but like many Princely lyrics open to interpretation by the mind of the listener.



Passing cum back and forth - no thanks


I agree - it’s not about swapping jizz. It’s referencing great sex during war time. Prince discussed it in the liner notes for the Crystal Ball record.

Hi Susannah!

Brilliant way to change the thread topic from "What is the Crystal Ball" to a full on Susannah Stan Fair, and dissing every other woman in Prince's life.

Keep up the good work!

lol lol lol * Not really changing the thread when the song was written about her. And if you take time to read the posts it was actually Pete who “dissed” the other women - I just didn’t argue that point because I tend to agree with it.


Not really changing the thread - R U kidding me?? You ruined it with an absolute Susannah hijack.

Took something amusing and wrung the life out it with your tedious brand of fan fiction. zzz

“Fiction” to those who refuse to believe that any song was written for or about her. The reality is there were many, and most are some of his best smile
*
This song was Prince and Susannah in the studio together, and it is about having great sex(“only the sounds of love and prayer echo on the yellow floor”) during the apocalypse. Read Prince’s Crystal Ball liner notes.
*
However, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Urban Dictionary term was born out of this song. That would totally make sense. smile

Prince’s words about the song Crystal Ball on the 1998 record:
*
“Crystal Ball - the song Crystal Ball was written
in a deepbluefunk depression as Prince pondered
his future in a music business that had become
more business than music. His only solace during
that time was his continuing search 4 a soul mate.
"All that matters is the love we make 2night. The
notion of making love during the apocalypse was
an interesting notion 2 us at the time." Susannah
Melvoin lent her voice 2 the track and Claire
Fischer arranged and conducted the orchestra. All
other noizes are made by Prince.”

In 'Hot Thing', sounds to me like he's referring to 'the Crystal Ball' as yet another imaginary nightclub.

Thus joining virtually every other Prince album title as being a name for an imaginary nightclub, run by Prince! cool wink

I don’t think Prince is referencing a nightclub when he sings “Crystal Ball” in Hot Thing. He’s singing about dancing with a hot young thing and then taking her home to give her the “crystal ball” - as in the best sex - “tell your parents you’re going to the crystal ball, tell them you’ll be comin’ home late if you’re comin’ home at all..”
*
He first used the words “Glam Slam” in his song Big Tall Wall - “baby you’re so glam every time I see you I wanna slam!”. Then he wrote the first version of the song Glam Slam in 1988, then the next one in ‘91, and then he opened the night clubs. Quite the journey for a two-word phrase that definitely connects to “wham bam” biggrin

A state of mind, an erotic evening with Prince and a double entendres.

Triple entendres, really, if you factor in the seeing the future element.

I think it's mainly a play on words combining something delicate and beautiful with sex.

YES, I think you are on point with this explanation. It is sexual, but special sexual, not dirty sexual.

I personally think she and Al swapped some squirt load back and forth, mor than often on the sounds of Darling Nikki, or Sex Shooter. Now wouldn't you when you see this pretty face ?

Oh good lawd!!! I guess anything's possible - he also sang about the "vulva splash" on Screams of Passion - "only you and I can understand..."


*


I think Prince's meaning is more along the lines of the best sex one can have with a partner - "expert lover, my baby - ever had a crystal ball? take off your clothes baby c'mon get the crystal ball..." "my baby, my baby, my baby kiss me, lick me, trick me, whoa!!"


*


Susannah stated this song was about their time together - she was painting a mural on their wall at the Galpin house which was mainly sexual in nature - "my baby draws pictures of sex (yes she does), all over the walls in graphic detail, sex!".


*


In his song Violet The Organ Grinder, in which Prince sings about an ex lover that he still thinks about and masturbates to her pictures, he says:


*


"I was on my way to another room
When an image of you sweetly
Appeared in the mirror
Perhaps you recall
You and I were neatly
In the middle of a Crystal Ball
That now serves as a reminder
On the wall of you and I the organ grinder
In the greatest concert of them all"


*


I think that song may have been about Susannah as well....



He does not say vulva splash it is velvet splash

https://prince.org/msg/7/459019

Please check out the above thread. Paul and Susannah confirmed the lyric is "vulva splash" on a recent live stream video. I'm sure Prince used "velvet" on the lyric sheet to make it cleaner. Also, in the context of the song "velvet" makes no sense. It's about a woman reaching orgasm, and it's why they had the ocean backdrop for the video.

*

If you really listen to the song you can hear "vulva" pretty clearly, especially on the demo version.

funny thing about tipper and women like her, they always just seem to tick my intuition as women who are the biggest freaks, she looks like a freak and she's hot as fuck, knew a pastor's wife like that.
