FlinterFile: Prince- Little Red Corvette


In 1983, Prince released the album 1999. Apart from the title track, this also was a big hit from that album.Prince was tired after a long recording session and slept in the pink Edsel of one of his background singers. During this sleep and other small naps he got the idea for the lyrics, which are, how surprising, about sex. The references, however, were not very obvious (Trojans referencing to condoms etc.), so radio stations played the song. It was a number 6 hit in the US and number 2 in the UK. Enjoy

Prince died today (21 April 2016) at the age of 57. He left us a big legacy very very very good music. As he was so protective of his rights, the song is not available on YouTube…
