then how ironic is at that at the end of such a racy song he's talking about the lord coming home soon. To ma_cherie, if you listen to Little Nikki..says "Masterbating with Magazine".
i think this explanation makes sense and i like the idea so i have been keeping this in mind when i think about the song! I remember this Song Played Live in the Purple Rain Tour when the song was over, they played the end part, in the normal, non-backmasking way!! Besides how can you masterbate IN a magazine if you're in person?? Oh and I LOVE Prince and Little Nikki is one of my favs!!
only three songs off of it could actually be played on the radio.There might be some in Let's Go Crazy, also on the follow up album Around the World in a Day: Bside Girl(long version)Prince also used backmasking on many songs off the Purple Rain album, and subsequent albums to follow." Is this true?- Dan, West Hartford, CTOK i had herd about a particular meaning of this song and i choose to stick w/this.My first encounter with Prince was with the albums 'Controversy' and '1999'.From the moment I heard '1999' I wanted to play it on New Year's eve, 1999.
