I've never quite understood this sound By the way, Prince did come into the studio the night I called him and told him about the song, and he played incredible synthesizer on it I got married the day I wrote this song.
It was extraordinary I phoned Prince out of the blue, hummed a melody, and he listened," says Nicks of the latter hit's gestation. He listened again, and I said, 'Do you hate it? He was so uncanny, so wild, he spoiled me for every band I've ever had because nobody can exactly re-create - not even with two piano players-what Prince did all by his little self.
I can't even really tell you what Stand Back is about.
Stand Back: 1981-2017
Stand Back's kinda about more than one thing. There was a lot going on when Stand Back was written so it kinda pulled together all the things that were happening so it wasn't about one thing. He also wrote and produced the track, whose sleazy pleasures were tailor-made for the dance floor as well as the stripper pole. His next choice was Vanity. I liked that. Technically, the raspy Wild Heart dance track "Stand Back," was written by Nicks herself — but Nicks has said it "belongs" to Prince.

She likes to tell its origin story: It was the day of her wedding, she and her new husband Kim Anderson were driving North to Santa Barbara for their honeymoon when she heard "Little Red Corvette" for the first time. She wrote "Stand Back" start to finish that day, humming along to the Prince single. When she later went to record the song, she called to tell him the story.
Twenty minutes later the Purple One showed up at her studio. He "walked over to the synthesizers that were set up, was absolutely brilliant for about 25 minutes and then left," she later told Timothy White. Prince is credited as co-writer and producer of the track, although the Time's guitarist Jesse Johnson soon disputed his former boss' role in its creation — in less than diplomatic terms. This funk-laced track about a woman who, despite having the outward trappings of "happiness," wants romantic love became the pop breakthrough for Sheila Escovedo, who met Prince in The coda, which showcases Sheila E.
In fact, we weren't even going to include it on the album," Sheila E.
Once I got started, though, the words came quickly … It was very percussive and it had a catchy melody, incorporating all the black keys on the piano so that it almost sounded like a nursery rhyme. Prince allegedly penned "I Feel for You" as a valentine to one of his crushes, jazz-funk queen Patrice Rushen, and included it on his self-titled album. There is the seductive voice of Melle Mel of "The Message" and Beat Street fame serenading Chaka, a harmonica riff from Stevie Wonder and those loud, blaring synthesizer stabs typical of pop music of the era.
Just as big was its heavy-rotation video clip that featured L. But Khan, who had spent much of the early-Eighties delving into sensuously mature boogie-funk and jazz-pop, wasn't entirely comfortable with the colorfully gauche "I Feel For You. As for Prince, he was too busy with Purple Rain to appear on the track. The only track from Sheila E.

Prince repurposed the track on the standalone single "Purple Medley," an minute travelogue through his catalog that also includes the Time's " After seeing an early Bangles show in Los Angeles, Prince sent the band a tape with two original songs he wanted them to record. I think he might have said something like, 'Oh, I was surprised you guys didn't use my track,' or something. But he was very happy with it. Prince's bluesy stomper "Kiss" has a long lineage. He originally wrote it for bass player Brown Mark's band Mazarati, but — just as Bruce Springsteen did with "Hungry Heart" when he wrote it for the Ramones — Prince stole it back for 's Parade, and the song went to Number One.
Soon, Tom Jones added the song to his Vegas live show. The avant-garde group the Art of Noise got in touch after seeing him perform it on TV, and the unlikely pair teamed up. The result was an industrial and funky, the best thing Jones had done in years. In , five years after "Nothing Compares 2 U" was released by Prince side project the Family without causing too much of a ripple, Sinead O'Connor became a star with her evocative, emotionally pummeling cover.
The Irish singer shifted the lyrics from being a break-up ballad to an exploration of loss, dedicating the song to her mother who died the same year the song had been originally released.

The year O'Connor's version blew up, her and the track's original songwriter appeared on Rolling Stone 's cover four months apart. I think we just took that song as far as we could, then someone else was supposed to come along and pick it up.
