Frolicsome guitar imp and undeniable national treasure Prince has certainly written many unforgettable records over the years. This new track “Screwdriver” is not one of them, which is why I’m going to spend exactly as much time writing about it as one of the greatest songwriters in the world put into the song. “Every day when I wake up, I make up, another reason to make it last. Miss mistake up, if we break up…” he begins. It doesn’t get much better from there. Still though, Prince, that one guy… man he wrote some good songs didn’t he? “Everywhere that we go now, there’s a show now. People pay money for the rock and roll.” Do they? God, let’s hope not.
You can watch the official lyric video at his site today. I’m not necessarily sure I would’ve chosen to highlight the lyrics to this one, but then again, I’m not Prince am I? Be a lot cooler if I was though.
