Prince - Little Red Corvette (Soarin' and RD) by impala99 Prince - Little Red Corvette (Soarin' and RD) by impala99
Before I can get to anything else, I'd like to say that this is not to conflict with some of *EVILIMPALA-SS's "ponies with cars" artwork. That's all I want to say from that dumber speech.

OK, now to some info...
I've been in LOVE (sorta-kinda) with this song by Prince. He's an American musician, by the way. If you don't know anything about him, then check out this Wikipedia article about him (which is so LONG). One of the songs Prince is known for is Little Red Corvette. It's about his one-night stand with his love interest (the Little Red Corvette which I'm guessing is a Chevrolet Corvette Stingray from the 1963 model year) he enjoys because of her beautiful looks. Prince, however, warns her to "slow down" and "find a love that's gonna last" before self-destructing. Also, it contains some automobile metaphors, which makes this love song different than ALL of them.

For the pony album cover, I chose Soarin' and Rainbow Dash. 'Cause I think they're probably the perfect couple in this song (and THIS SONG ONLY. um... if that's alright with you, i guess...). I also imitated the printing process with the CMYK (Cyan Magenta Yellow Key, the latter meaning black) color model, as well as choosing a font designed prior to the release of this single.

Some quick thinking...
I think Soarin' would be Prince in this song and Rainbow Dash as the love interest. Wait, doesn't this retitle the song as Little Rainbow Corvette? Feels a little unright, I guess... Oh, alright, I'll shut up.

EDIT: I forgot to type this in, but I'll do it anyway.
The other two titles on this album cover are All the Critics Love U in New York and 1999. They act as b-sides to Little Red Corvette. Those names were ripped straight from Wikipedia.


I guess I should've known by the way
you parked your car sideways that it wouldn't last.
See, you're the kinda person that believes in makin' out once,
love 'em and leave 'em fast.

I guess I must be dumb 'cause you had a pocket full of horses,
Trojan and some of them used.
But it was Saturday night, I guess that makes it all right
and you say, "What have I got to lose?"

Chorus
And honey, I say, "Little Red Corvette!
"Baby, you're much too fast!
"Ooh, Little Red Corvette!
You need a love that's gonna last!"

I guess I should've closed my eyes
when you drove me to the place where your horses run free.
'Cause I felt a little ill when I saw all the pictures
of the jockeys that were there before me.

Believe it or not, I started to worry,
I wondered if I had enough class.
But it was Saturday night, I guess that makes it all right
and you say, "Baby, have you got enough gas?" Oh, yeah!

Chorus
Little Red Corvette!
Baby, you're much too fast! Yes, you are!
Little Red Corvette!
You need to find a love that's gonna last! Oh, oh!

A body like yours oughta be in jail
'cause it's on the verge of bein' obscene.
Move over, baby, gimme the keys,
I'm gonna try to tame your little red love machine!

Chorus
Little Red Corvette!
Baby, you're much too fast!
Little Red Corvette!
Need to find a love that's gonna last, hey-hey!

Little Red Corvette!
Honey, you got to slow down!
(You got to slow down!)
Little Red Corvette!
'Cause if you don't, you're gonna run your little red corvette
right in the ground!

(Little Red Corvette!)
Right down to the ground!
(Honey, you got to slow down!)
You, you, you got to slow down!

(Little Red Corvette!)
You're movin' much too fast, too fast!
Need to find a love that's gonna last!

Girl, you got an [...] like I never seen! Ow!
And the ride...
I say the ride is so smooth,
you must be a limousine!

Chorus
Ow! Baby, you're much too fast!
Little Red Corvette!
You need a love, you need a love that's, uh, that's gonna last!

(Little Red Corvette!)
Babe, you got to slow down!
(You got to slow down!)
Little Red Corvette!
'Cause if you don't, 'cause if you don't,
you're gonna run your body right into the ground!

(Right into the ground!)
Right into the ground!
(Right into the ground!)
Right into the ground!
(Right into the ground!)

Little Red Corvette, oh!

(Oohoohoohooh... ooh!)
