'Look At Me, Look At You' - Simply AMAZING

I have been a fan of Prince since '83 and think HNR P.2 is a masterpiece start to finish, especially 'Look At Me, Look At You' - any other lovers of this song?


Question please - any live versions of that song in existence?


Thank you

The song was performed during 'Piano and a Microphone' shows, and unofficial recordings circulate.

"modesty aside, whoever made u should be praised", I love that. I didn't listen to this song until after he died. Bitter/sweet whenever I listen to it now. I sure do miss him. Never will see him live again.

His last true classic as far as I'm concerned. So glad we got HitNRun 2 before he died. Really strong album.

Lol, I might have missed that line But I will say at least he apologises, and in a song that smooth he can get away with lines that would put lesser mortals on restraining order. lol

Song is extraordinary. Superb! Worth noting that Prince could do something like this - create a gorgeous, slinky groove so effortlessly - so late in his carrer. Reminds me of the stuff on Emancipation.

"Even RayyyyyyYYYYYY CHARLES COULD SEE! Stevie Wonder can too! Heart goes out in wonder, thinking about me and you!"

I generally don't like mellow Prince, but I love that line!

The way he sings it is cool.

Reminds me of the skit at the end of 'get yo groove on" on Emancipation where a character is trying to get into a club and he says "It don't take Stevie Wonder to see I got the right clothes on to get in this club."

That whole record is pretty good, if a little softer than I'd like most of the time. I find myself listening to it a lot and am impressed with its consistency - something prince wasn't always great at. There's a breezy sort of feel to it, no real clunkers and a distinct lack of really sharp edges but some rather deceptively good songwriting.
