Prostitute (6:16)

Cover of Chinese Democracy

From Chinese Democracy

There’s a pile of great modern rock songs on the latest from Guns N’ Roses, the fourteen-years-in-the-making “Chinese Democracy.” That being said, “Prostitute” shows the new GNR projecting strength and maturity while retaining a foreboding edge, as singer Axl Rose shows insecurity, honesty and empathy during the progression of this excellent track.

As a finale, “Prostitute” is movingly brilliant, compellingly edgy and majestic throughout. Rose’s falsetto is in top form and the whammy-bar soloing transports this important social commentary into the depths of outer space while the band holds on to time.

Axl’s poignant verse during the track “Prostitute,” “Ask Yourself, What I Would Do/To Prostitute Myself,/To Live With Fortune And Shame” is the most brilliant insight we’ve had into his feelings on the breaking apart of the old GN’R. This entire time of waiting to release the record has become this man’s life, his reason to get up in the morning, his daily connection with what passes for reality when you’re a megastar named W. Axl Rose.

Chinese Democracy arrives Sunday, November 22nd.

Publishing: Black Frog Publishing (ASCAP), Zero Intelligence Publishing (ASCAP)

Written by: “Prostitute” was written by Axl Rose and Paul Tobias.

It seems like forever and a day
If my intentions were misunderstood
Please be kind, I've done all I should
I won't ask of you what I would not do
