i think it was suppossed to be soldiers feet marching, he used a few effects on that record, the baby on delirious etc..,

Prince.org: With fans like these he didn't need haters.

the song does start our with a heartbeat first

the marching comes in @ :06

the heartbeat continues underneath the marching

there is the sound of waves crashing, and you can hear someone talking

it almost sounds like a cadence call or order to the marchers.

but yeah heartbeat and then marching feet.

also the sound of tires on a wet road...

Anyone for banning the AR15 must be on the side of the criminal as once banned only criminals will have them.

More than likely, it was probably a “heartbeat” from the same sound effects album he sourced the “baby sound”, traffic noises and soldier marching from.

The marching sample on Free and the baby cry at the end of Delirious are samples from the Fairlight synth.

I always thought of it as a heart beat, with marching feet.
But it kinda does sound like windshield wippers lol
