Blue Limousine is the third track on Apollonia 6's first and only album Apollonia 6, and, in late 1984, Blue Limousine was released as the album's second and final single. Blue Limousine was written by Prince, but credited to Apollonia 6 (words) and Sheila E. (music).

Initial tracking took place on 15 April 1984 at Sunset Sound, Hollywood, CA, USA. (PrinceVault)

it's a mystery to me why this song wasn't a major hit single.It's a better song than "Sex Shooter" and it has an excellent lead vocal,courtesy of Brenda.It doesn't seem like Warners made any real effort to promote it and get it played on the radio confuse

it's 7:32,where can my baby be?
I must be a fool to let somebody do this to me
I can't stop him,wherever he parks his car is alright
but he'll be parking with a dent in the side if he stands me up tonight

If there were alternative opening scenes for the Purple Rain movie featuring each band

Blue Limousine would easily be a powerful opening for (Vanity6/Apollonia 6)

My Drawers -the Time

Let's Go Crazy -Prince & the Revolution

If the production was done a little differently, I swear this could be an indie pop song today. So good!

U know I could imagine Selena Gomez doing a cover of this song, or Fifth Harmony.

Lawd if they came out with a 3CD set with outtakes and this DVD. LAWDDDD...yall better buy it!

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

Image result for blue limousine apollonia 6

Seven-thirty
He said that he'd be here by six
It's looking dirty
I guess he's up to his old tricks
He likes 'em pretty
He likes 'em in their lingerie
It's such a pity
I bought a camisole today
Boo hoo, boo hoo

Seven-thirty and there's still no sign
Of my baby's blue limousine

Seven-thirty-one
I planned for him to spend the night
We could've had some fun
Pretty men, they never treat you right
They talk so dirty
They get you all worked up inside
It's your car
But everybody else always gets to drive

Seven-thirty-one and there's still no sign
Of my baby's blue limousine

He's got a white one
He's got a yellow one
He's got a black one with a body obscene
Still no sign of my baby's blue limousine
Still no sign of my baby's blue limousine

Seven-thirty-two
Where can my baby be
I must be a fool
To let somebody do this to me
I can't stop him
Wherever he parks his car is alright
But he'll be parking with a dent in the side
If he stands me up tonight

Seven-thirty-two and there's still no you
My baby blue limousine
Baby blue limousine
Baby blue limousine
Baby blue limousine
Baby blue limousine

He's got a white one
He's got a yellow one
He's got a black one with a body obscene
Still no sign of my baby's blue limousine

He treats you special like you're the only one
Then your girlfriend tells you that he's having big fun
Still no sign of my baby's blue limousine
He's so pretty, he's so nice
He'll make you feel like you're in a paradise
Still no sign of my baby's blue limousine
Still no sign of my baby's blue limousine

He like 'em pretty
He like big titties
He likes 'em in their lingerie
Still no sign of my baby's blue limousine

He's all black
He's all white
Everybody's gotta jam tonight
Limousine
Limousine
Still no sign of my baby's blue limousine
Still no sign of my baby's blue limousine
