Day 28: The Greatest Romance Ever Sold

greatest

If you go on any Prince fan message boards, there’s bound to be at least one board devoted to interpretations of the lyrics to this song. And given that it’s Prince, there’s every chance that not one of us got it *right*. I won’t try to interpret it for anyone else; all I can say is that lyrically, I think it’s one of his finest songs. And it’s one of his sexiest, as well.

“The Greatest Romance Ever Sold” is the third track on Prince’s “Rave Un2 the Joy Fantastic” album. ¬†Various remixes of the song were also released with Eve, Maceo Parker and The Neptunes taking part.

It’s sensual and slinky and gorgeous. Enjoy the video by clicking the image below.
