In the 1980s, the first verse of ‘Darling Nikki’ incited loud gasps from the prude parent parade, while producing squeals of delight for fans. Tipper Gore was so outraged she used ‘Darling Nikki’ as the inspiration for the crusade to require “Parental Advisory” labels on CD’s. ‘Darling Nikki’ wasn’t the most sexually suggestive Prince track during the 1980’s but it was simply Tipper Gore’s first introduction to the purple one.
Prince used his music to spark controversy, inspire thought-provoking commentary, and preach to the masses. His lyrics about religion and references to God were just as common as his sexually suggestive lyrics and most times the two topics were married on the same track. ‘Horny Toad’ is just one example of decidedly naughty and remarkably suggestive lyrics like:
“If u think I’m nasty U ain’t seen nothing yet,
Y’see I’m the kinda brother that the more u scream the nastier I get.”
