“Private Joy”

This comes off the Controversy album. The second album I got to peep from Prince in my youth. Even tho For You & his self title album Prince came before Controversy. My mom wasn’t privy to him until the Prince album.  Controversy, one of Prince’s best albums if you ask me. (one of many) “Private Joy”  just brings back memories of me in the mirror with my play guitar. Pretending to own the stage and direct like him. Something he adopted from James Brown. Plus I had my own little private joy at the time, Lol.

Controversy

My little secret, my private joy
I could never let another play with my toy
My little angel from heaven above
Oh oh oh oh oh I think I’m falling in love

And I ain’t gonna tell nobody nobody ’bout my little pretty toy
All the other kids would love to love you but you’re my little private joy
My private joy – you’re my private joy

Private joy – such a pretty toy
Joy, you are my private joy

U’re my little lover, Orgasmatron
Only I know, only I know, baby, what turns you on
U’re my little secret neon light
Girl I wanna turn it on turn it on turn it on every night

Ain’t gonna tell nobody nobody ’bout my little pretty toy
All the other kids would love to love you but you’re my little private joy
My private joy – you’re my private joy

Here Is When I Go Into My Prince Fit

The first Prince fit has begun. I’m sure many was checking for this moment, Lol. Sorry I choose to get into this on a Sunday, but oh well. Hopefully God doesn’t mind.

I’ll kick it off with some music. A song that has touched my life the moment my ears first heard the opening lyric. “Anna Stesia” . . . this gem/classic is one of Prince’s best songs of all time. Yes, I said all time. It falls somewhere in between the top 20 Prince songs of all time. Let me know why if you don’t agree. | Luv

Have you ever been so lonely
That you felt like you were the
Only one in this world?

Have you ever wanted to play
With someone so much you’d take
Any one boy or girl?

Anna Stesia come to me
Talk to me, ravish me
Liberate my mind
Tell me what you think of me
Praise me, craze me
Out this space and time

Between white and black, night and day
Black night seemed like the only way
So I danced

Music late, nothing great (Music late, nothing great)
No way to differentiate (No way to differentiate)
I took a chance

Gregory looks just like a ghost
And then a beautiful girl the most
Wets her lips to say

“We could live for a little while
If you could just learn to smile
You and I could fly away, fly away”

Anna Stesia come to me
Talk to me, ravish me
Liberate my mind
Tell me what you think of me
Praise me, craze me
Out this space and time

Maybe, maybe, maybe I could learn to love
I mean the right way, I mean the only way
Perhaps you could show me, baby (show me, baby)

Anna Stesia come to me
Talk to me, ravish me
Liberate my mind

Maybe, maybe, maybe I could learn to love
If I was just closer to somethin’ (closer)
Closer to your higher self
I don’t know
Closer to heaven (Maybe) closer to God (closer to God)

Save me Jesus, I’ve been a fool
How could I forget that you are the rule
You are my God, I am Your child
From now on, for you I shall be wild
I shall be quick I shall be strong
I’ll tell Your story, no matter how long (no matter how, no matter)

We’re just a play in Your master plan
Now, my Lord I understand

(I understand)

Love is God, God is love, girls and boys love God above

About Prince . . .

Just wanted to mention. I’m on the last leg of my blog post on my falling idol, Prince. I’ve been trying my best to keep it short, but I have so much to say and mention, Lol.

Prince | The Beautiful Experience

I forget how old I was when I first seen this film. Maybe 21, 22 or so. Prince had an masquerade party at the Park West in Chicago back in the 90’s. Crazy thing is, that place still stands to this day. parkwestDuring that night this video was played on the big screen.  The Beautiful Experience, starring the beautiful Nona Gaye. Prince made quite a few videos like this. Short musical films. This is not the best copy, but the only copy I’ve seen on the internet. If your a Prince fan you will enjoy this.
