Friday Funk! – Prince – Right Back Here in My Arms

13 08 2010

I love Prince. But while the great and good bang on about how he’s lost it since the 80s, I’m tucked away with my bloated 3-CD Emancipation set enjoying some of the best music he ever put down. Right Back Here In My Arms is a hugely underrated 90s synth-funk gem, reminiscent of some of his earliest, most joyful, one-man-band material. It’s a timeless tune that gets a regular airing chez Cuts. Enjoy!

Oh! And for the good of your health, please try and avoid listening to this tune on your computer, mobile device or iPod, as, like Grandpa Purpleness says, “‘All these computers and digital gadgets are no good. They just fill your head with numbers and that can’t be good for you.” So, please don’t click on the video above and get your funk on. In fact, what the hell are you doing here? Quick, unplug your machine, wind up the gramaphone and slip into some ridiculous clothes. It’s for the good of your health!
