Radio VI, side B, track 1: “Glam Slam” by Prince

Oh, Prince, I wrote the title of this one down as “Grand Slam”.  Come on, Prince, cut me some slack, like I had any idea what “glam slam” meant.  To be fair, I wasn’t real big on sports, so “grand slam” was actually a little fuzzy to me, as well, but I at least knew it had something to do with baseball.  And I guess to be even more fair, I’m still not real sure what “glam slam” means, but pretty sure it’s got something to do with sex.  I think I knew that at the time, too, Prince, but your concept of sex was so far out of the realm of my understanding that I wouldn’t have understood it even if you sat me down and explained it to me (which would probably make for one of the most awkward/awesome conversations in history).  One thing I missed at the time, Prince, is that you actually got away with singing “horny” on the radio.  I didn’t catch it at the time, and it’s probably just as well, because I don’t know that my little head would have been able to process how cool that was without my head actually exploding.  Oh, Prince, you are somethin’ else.

“Glam Slam”

This thing we got, it’s alive
It seems to transcend the physical
One touch and I’m satisfied
Must be a dream, it’s so magical

Glam Slam, thank you, ma’am
You really make my day
Glam Slam, thank you, ma’am
I pray you’ll always stay

I know I hold you too tight (too tight)
But I just can’t seem to get close enough (I want to hold you)
Want to hold you every night (Wanna hold you every night)
I’m so horny and you’re the stuff

Glam Slam, thank you, ma’am
You really make my day
Glam Slam, thank you, ma’am
I pray you’ll always stay

Ha ha ha!

This thing we got, it’s alive (alive)
It seems to transcend the physical
One touch and I’m satisfied (ooo, baby)
Must be a dream, it’s so magical

Glam Slam, thank you, ma’am
You really make my day
Glam Slam, thank you, ma’am
I pray you’ll always stay

Glam Slam
You will always stay (you will always stay)

It’s all right
It’s OK
