|"Love Song" / Madonna & Price|
That same year Prince released the soundtrack to Tim Burton's Batman. It falls at the mid-point between his critically acclaimed Sign o' the Times and Diamonds and Pearls (although is not adjacent to either).
At this point in their respective careers they could do anything they wanted to. And they probably didn't have to do anything they didn't want to. The end result of 2 of the biggest pop stars of the time (or of ever)--in fact 2 of the most sexualized musicians of the time OR ever--is a song so mind-numbingly boring (and chaste) that I regularly have to remind fans of either that this song exists.
I'm fairly certain neither has ever performed this song live. And if Prince receives any residual money from sales of the Madonna album, they probably confuse his accountant just a bit. Ever heard it? It's awful...
