Prince’s song for the Minnesota Vikings

As the New Orleans Saints prepare to throw down against the Vikings for the NFC Championship, it has come to my attention that Prince wrote and recorded a “fight song” to inspire his hometown team.

You can hear a bit of it below, courtesy of a Minneapolis TV station. I think Prince is about to get his feelings hurt. WHO DAT??

IDK...
Purple and Gold (and the Green of the field)?
Aren't those party colors in NOLA?

I don't know UBM... Mr. Favre might be earning another ring as I type this. Score tied @28.

I love Prince, but that song is stinky.

Haven't listened yet. Buffering...
buffering...buffering....
Based on the reactions here, maybe that's a good thing?

I've never seen "Graffiti Bridge" because I thought it would be painful to watch. I'm afraid this song might be painful to listen to.

It vaguely sounds like a hymn not a fight song.

I actually heard a bit of it this morning on Kathy Lee and Hoda's show. Kristen Chenoweth was rooting for the Vikings because she loves Prince. Kathy Lee asked if it was a "great song" and Kristen said, "who cares"?

All I could think about it was...da hell?

Desert Man said...

Of course, Kristen Chenowith loves Prince! He's the only non-dwarf she's taller than. Kidding! Love Prince, hate the song. Retire for good, Brett!

Go Saints! (Until the Bears come back.)

Hoosier Dat???!!!! (Go Colts!)

I've been trying to drum up local support for a Babyface tribute to the Colts but so far no one is keen to hear what he'd come up with. LOL

this song is poopoo

Invisible Woman said...

haha UBM...great minds think alike; i actually had a passing thought that maybe he was starting to get senile or a bit dodgy...

geneva girl is right--it sounds like one of my catholic hymns growing up.

I love Prince but this song is not it. It sounds kinda like I don't know.... crap. And of course I say that out of love.

As for PPR Scribe
Hooiser Dat, Dat don't even sound right! And Peyton is from New Orleans by the way, so we will take credit for dat as well! And in case you all were wondering, yes people in New Orleans went CRAZY last night! They have already scheduled a parade even if the Saints don't win, but they will.
Superbowl, then Mardi Gras, then premier of Treme how will we survive?

Davis Rogan said...

New Orleans has a long and proud tradition of writing songs for our Saints. Perhaps Morris Day or the Vanity 6 or the Replacements wrote a Vikings song that dosen't suck.

@ 9th Ward - FIVE weeks of Mardi Gras?

Urban Mac User said...

Damn, did old age make Prince lose his funk?
Next thing u know, he'll be writing jingles
for Wilfred Brimley and the MediAlert bracelet...
LOL!


seriously, that song...WTFWHT?
