Song of the Day: Little Red Corvette

I love my Songs of the Day, and especially on Saturday nights I noticed. No particular reason I’d say, as my Saturday nights can be pretty much similar to Sunday-Friday nights 😉 until I heard someone singing ‘But it was Saturday night, I guess that makes it all right’…and so it is!

The ones paying attention should not be surprised; that ‘someone’ is Prince (the greatest artist of all time), and the line is from his first big hit, ‘Little Red Corvette’, an erotic fusion of rock and funk combined with groovy guitar riffs and a great solo…I love it!!

And I wonder, for the ones paying attention (and actually, also the ones who don’t); do YOU think this song is about a car? Really??? Listen again and catch the metaphor…(or, read it below the YouTube clip 😉 )

Read the lyrics, remember that most Prince songs are drained in sex and consider the following (just some of many): a pocket full of Trojans refers to Tr0jan condoms, The “jockeys” represent men who have previously slept with the girl, and well uhhh, Little Red Corvette refers to that most private place of a girl, below the belt…a change of perspective eh? 😉
