I realized last night, that I haven’t posted any Prince; and that I am very fond of I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man. Thinking about it, it’s a good follow-up to “A Quick One While He’s Away.”
Both songs are written by artists that don’t have a reputation for subtlety, but that manage to describe a somewhat complicated emotional situation in satisfying and reasonable ways. Neither tries for particular subtlety, or to really explore the emotions but both have, as I said, a basic sanity to their vision.
In addition, it’s just a fantastic pop song. Even if you don’t listen to the words, it’s one of Prince’s better songs, and a legitimate pop classic.
