Audio: New Song From Prince “The Breakdown”

Last week, Prince and Warner Brothers settled a long running dispute. Apparently, he gets ownership of his master recordings, while they get to digitally remaster and reissue his classic albums. It appears as though a 30th anniversary release of “Purple Rain” will be the first of the reissues. On top of that, Prince announced that he will be releasing a new studio album soon.

I thought something was up when he started appearing in places like “The Arsenio Hall Show” and “New Girl”, but I thought it was just going to be a new album from 3rdeyegirl, his new band. I had no idea it was going to be something like a reconciliation with a company he once said made him into a slave.

Things are progressing very quickly. This morning I saw the news that he has released a new single on iTunes called ‘The Breakdown’. Take a listen and let me know what you think of it.

Audio: Janelle Monáe covering David Bowie’s “Heroes”

I hadn’t heard Janelle Monáe’s music until The Electric Lady came out but I have quickly become a fan. David Bowie has been a staple on Detroit radio for as long as I can remember and I am a fan of his stuff leading up to (and including) the first Tin Machine album, but I will admit to losing track of his career after that. I really dig Janelle covering Bowie.

I Found My Original Plans for Deliberate Noise

Long time listeners will know that I originally planned to have Deliberate Noise as a weekly show that had different subjects being talked about in between podsafe songs. I tried to duplicate what I had in mind for Episode 100 (which was both the 100th episode of Deliberate Noise and Comic Book Noise).  The gimmick for that episode was “what would the 100th episode of Deliberate Noise sound like if I had kept to my original plans?” I liked the experiment, but it proved that I was smart to break all of the talking parts into their own podcasts and left Deliberate Noise as a music show.

Recently I found the notebook with my original plans for Deliberate Noise.  The segments were going to be Comic Book Noise, TV Noise, Movie Noise, Video Game Noise, DVD Release Noise, and Music Noise. Once I decided to rework the show, the plan was for there to be Deliberate Noise and Deliberate Noise Special Editions.

The notebook contains the subjects that I wanted to talk about for the first six Special Edition episodes:

1) Book Report of Love and Rockets by Gilbert Hernandez

2) Evaluation of Crisis On Infinite Earths by Marv Wolfman

3) Review of this season’s ‘The 4400″

4) Review of this season’s “Rescue Me”

5) Readings of Aesop’s Fables (with commentary) [find list of all fables]

6) Evaluation of Confucius’ sayings.

I have no idea what an “Evaluation” is. Number 1 later became part of my Love and Rockcast podcast. Number 2 was part of Book Review Noise. The rest never saw the light of day. I don’t even remember ever talking about The 4400 on SciFiNoise or Rescue Me on TV Noise.

Part of me wonders if anybody would have stayed listening if this was how I started the show.

My Favorite Albums by The Time

After listening to all of them in the past few days, I would put them in this order:
What Time Is It by The Time

The Time by The Time

Condensate by The Original 7ven

Pandemonium by The Time

Ice Cream Castles by The Time

It is not that surprising to me that I find their two most successful albums to be their worst. There’s a different between having fun and being silly. Ice Cream Castles was when they sold out big time around the Purple Rain era and was just silly. Pandemonium was when they tried to sell out big time for the Graffiti Bridge era and was just as silly. The other albums happened when a lot of people who jumped on the Purple Rain bandwagon weren’t paying attention to them so they were able to have fun.

Cee-Lo Green and Prince performing ‘Crazy’

I have always dug this song and while a lot of people may have gotten sick of it, I still haven’t. The fact that Prince is on the guitar for this performance makes it that much better.
