Running to 7 minutes, 15 seconds, the title track of his fourth album is an off-beat composition even for Prince. Released in 1981, it includes a recitation of The Lord's Prayer but according to a BBC documentary screened in November 2011, this was not done to be either controversial or sensationalist.
As Prince is an artist who has never been afraid to experiment, this claim is to be taken at face value.
The edit runs to 3 minutes 39 seconds, and the 2004 re-release to 6 minutes 6 seconds.
