I love this song, I even loved the album cover! And while the band The Family may have been a short lived Prince concoction; it has left me with one of my favorite musical creations.  I fell in love with this song the first time I heard it.  That love was cemented by the group’s sexy video that featured Jerome Benton of the Time and their cutting edge fashion statement of silk pajamas (CLICK HERE TO SEE VIDEO).  They were hot and full of soul.  But like so many of Paisley Park’s proteges, his Purple Badness’s tight grip choked the life out of The Family.  At least I’m left with the memories or perhaps the fantasy of what could have been.  I say fantasy since Prince actually wrote, performed and sang most of the music associated with this single.  The group’s lead vocals were later added.  Enjoy the extended version of 1985’s Screams of Passion.  Who knows… perhaps this may the beginning of a new Prince inspired mix; although I’m afraid that could send my mind into creative overload.  Love!
