Summer is in full swing! Good thing Brian, Denny, Carl, Mike, and Al made a whole catalog of songs that are perfect for anyone who’s out to catch some rays and some waves. Check to see how many of them you know below:
I wasn’t surprised at the subject matter of “Darling Nikki.” Prince had already been writing risque material. But I really liked “Darling Nikki.” I thought, “Okay, you are going to stir the pot again.” And I loved that because I’m a rebel at heart. I was behind Prince all the way from day one with his rebellious, sexual side. He was breaking new ground. Prince played an electronic drum kit live in the studio on “Darling Nikki.” There may have been some acoustic drums supplementing that. And I think there was a real snare on there with Prince playing against that. And when it gets to the end where you hear the drums going double time that was the Linn drum machine being triggered.
