Prince’s Scandalous vs Insatiable Poll Results

“Insatiable” released in 1991 on the “Diamonds and Pearls” album sounds just like 1989’s “Scandalous” from the Batman soundtrack.
They sound so similar some fans get the two tracks confused. Which do you prefer?
As of February 14, 2018, “Scandalous” has the most views on the official Prince YouTube channel. “Insatiable” has 304,951 views while “Scandalous” has 837,633 views. However, those numbers may be misleading because “Scandalous” was published on August 25, 2017.
“Insatiable” was published on September 15, 2017.

“Insatiable” has the line “We’ll ERASE the naughty bits.”
Ok, is that the line to close the deal and get someone to make a freaky video?
Because who has time to erase anything?
Come to think of it, who knows what surprises are lurking in the vault!

The “Insatiable” video was directed by famed photographer Randee St. Nicholas who also puts herself in the video LIKE A BOSS.
Nicholas also shot the video for “Gett Off.”
She is also responsible for many of his most popular photos. Prince published a book with her in 2008 called “21 Nights.” Her work is outstanding.

INSATIABLE LYRICS:

Turn the lights off, strike a candle
No one that I’ve ever, knows how to handle my body
The way you truly do
Insatiable’s my name when it comes to you
I got a Jones, Martha
Oh yeah, it be like this
(I can’t have a hug)
I can’t have a hug
(Unless)
Unless I have a kiss

My body, baby, you truly do
Insatiable’s my name when it comes to you

Like a wildcat, Martha, in a celibate rage
I want you alone in my dirty little cage
Can you understand, Martha?

My body, baby, you truly do
Insatiable’s my name when it comes to you

Tonight we video
No one will ever know
We’ll erase the naughty bits
I’ll show my—
If you show your—
I can’t help it, Martha
I can’t help what you do to me
You are my every fantasy

There’s no telling how far I’d go
Cause when it comes to you, i know
I’m insatiable and I just can’t stop
Even if I wasn’t thirsty
I would drink every drop

Please, baby, don’t say no
‘Cause I”ll surely go crazy
Ok, so all you do is push the little red button…
And i belong to you in your little video box
Hey – don’t look at the clock, yeah
It’s 2:45, we got all night
First you gotta tell me what you want me to do

My body, baby, you truly do
Insatiable’s my name when it comes to you

There’s no telling how far I’d go
Cause when it comes to you, i know
I’m insatiable and I just can’t stop
Even if I wasn’t thirsty
I would drink every drop

So take it slow baby, and let’s unwind
Do you really want all my clothes off?
(Yes)
What are you gonna do to prove it?
Aren’t you afraid we’re gonna be found out?
Well, let’s get on with the shoutin’
Turn the lights down low
(Turn the lights down lower)
Doesn’t my body look good in the shadows?
Baby knows what to do
Have you done this before?
(I don’t know)
You say you want my hips up in the air?
(Yeah)
I don’t know, I don’t care

(My body, baby, you truly do)
I knew i could be nasty with you
(Up and down, just like a seesaw)
(Back and forth)
(Back and forth)
Listen
(Oh girl, I’m falling)
I love you, baby
I love you baby, you’re mine
You’re nastier than I thought
It’s just 2:49…

SCANDALOUS LYRICS:
Come… closer
Feel what you’ve been dying for
Don’t be afraid, baby
Touch it and explode
Understand, understand that I love you
But more than that – I want you
Everybody always told me
Good things come to those who wait
But I’ve got so much on the menu
I just can’t wait, I just can’t
I can’t wait baby
I can’t wait baby
I can wrap my legs around you girl
Cause sugar, you know you’re just the kind of lover
That I’ve been looking for
Tonight why don’t we skip all the foreplay, mamma
And just get down here on the floor

[Chorus]
Scandalous
I’m talking about you and me
Marvelous – baby, baby, can’t you see
Anything you’ve ever dreamed of
I’m willing to be
Tonight it’s going to be scandalous
Cause tonight I’m going to be your fantasy

My dearest, my dearest
(Whisper) Whisper a question
With my body (body) I’ll scream a reply
Anything’s acceptable
Just ask me and I’ll try it
To hell with hesitation
To hell with the reasons why

Scandalous
I’m talking about you and me
Marvelous – baby, baby, can’t you see
Anything you’ve ever dreamed of
I’m willing to be
Tonight it’s going to be scandalous
Cause tonight I’m going to be your fantasy

Oh girl, the things you make me do!
Genius is the only way to describe you
Anything you’ve ever dreamed of baby
Just ask me – I’ll do, I’ll do
I’ll do it or you baby
Anything at all
Spirits rise and spirits fall
Anything you ever dreamed off, I’m willing to be
Tonight is going be scandalous
Cause tonight I’m, tonight I’m going to be your fantasy!

Scandalous
I’m talking about you and me
Marvelous – baby, baby, can’t you see
Anything you’ve ever dreamed of
I’m willing to be
Tonight it’s going to be scandalous
Cause tonight I’m going to be your fantasy

Scandalous, marvelous
