The opening lyric, “I guess I should’ve known by the way you parked your car sideways that it wouldn’t last,” has been in my head ALL week for some reason.

It was Saturday night, so I guess that made it alright.

 

In hindsight it is funny that Prince's lyrics were so obtuse that we just assumed he was using sexual allegories.  However, did he really try to compare female reproductive organs to both little red corvettes and raspberry berets (or just the kind you find in a second hand store)?  Meanwhile Purple Rain remains one of the most beautiful songs to me, both emotionally and harmonically, but I have no idea of the intended interpretation of the lyric.

He really was an underrated lyricist, even when the suggestive stuff felt on the nose. “The Ballad of Dorothy Parker” was a great storytelling song.
