My Medallion

I hadn't listened to this song in aeons and had forgotten just how much I like it. It's a fun song with brilliant story telling and makes me smile like the Cheshire cat.

Prince was very witty in his humour and I think a video for this could've been great comedy.

What other songs do you think missed out on a good video to accompany it?

Just another song where prince "forgot" to give credit where it's due. I guess that is the reason why this npgmc track was never included in "The Chocoloate Invasion" or "The Slaughterhouse" album. He must have received a nice letter from Eric Burdon's lawyers.

Have you ever seen the publishing credits for this track? How do you know the lift wasn’t credited?

".....but no writer's credits were given upon My Medallion's release."

Prince has a history of "forgetting" to give credit. That was not the first incident and not the last.

Cheers, I wasn't aware of any of that or familiar with this song. It's always good to learn but I still prefer My Medallion, biggrin

I think both "songs", or rather "unfocused pieces of music that don't go anywhere" are shit.hmph!
I may disagree with everything you say, but I will defend your right to say it.

Haha, straight to the point, I like it!

There'll be songs you love that I hate and vice versa, different strokes for different folks.

The chorus is identical. It's obvious.

That’s right - no credits were published on NPGMC. That doesn’t mean Eric Burden isn’t included in the actual filing. I am aware that Prince wasn’t always good about giving proper credit, but until we see the registration for this track, we can’t know if that’s the case here.

I believe we have: ascap's database contained Prince's songs until some years ago. The song was included on the Tidal version on the album, though, so I doubt its removal from the original release was due to publishing issues. But who knows...

lol Sorry what I meant was I keep singing the line "I don't know why, I want that girl" from My Medallion over it.

I think he's singing "Spill that wine, look at that girl". I'm sure someone will educate us on it, biggrin

Have just looked up the lyrics and it's,,, "Spill the wine, take that pearl".

Yea, on My Medallion.

I'm pretty sure dance4me was querying the lyrics in Spill the Wine.
