Prince – If I Was Your Girlfriend (1987)



A live recording of ‘If I Was Your Girlfriend’ is a suitable spotlight on the talent that is sometimes known as Prince. Firstly, unearthing any Prince track on YouTube is like finding a hen’s tooth. But this song is also off his classic long player Sign “O” The Times. Put out as the second single off the album, the track was originally created for a shelved project, which was to be released by his alter ego Camille. Just to add to an extra layer of sexuality, Prince sings it from a male perspective, exploring the possibilities of being his lover’s girlfriend. Yup, he was out there.
