Good Love (4:55)

Cover of Crystal Ball

From Crystal Ball and 3 other releases

This track was recorded in 1986 for the aborted “Camille” project featuring Prince in his notable use of experimenting with speeding up his vocal used on his mid-80’s funk tracks. When the project was aborted prince gave this track to the Warner Bros produced film Bright Light Big City. Prince amended Good Love for use on his album Crystal Ball that was released in 1998 so that it wouldnt confront with Warner Bros. usage, thus making this an edited version.

According to Susan Rogers Susannah and Jill Jones were making eyes at eachother during the making of this song, as he was with Susannah Melvoin at the time. Jill Jones may have been a prominent role at the time because he was embarking to make her 1987 album “Jill Jones”

The track is a highly Linn driven synth -pop number with Prince in full use of the sped up vocal. The lyrics are very colorful and cartoon like as Prince talks about the “Good Love” of his mate. It is an exceptional number as one of Prince’s best notable productions.

    One of Prince's most underrated songs. I was one of the, like, 5 people to buy the Bright Lights, Big City soundtrack just to hear this song. And it was totally worth it!
