anyone recognize that exact same quirky keyboard sound from a Prince song? Girls and Boys?

That eighties snare drum sound usually drives me up the wall, but somehow right now, somehow, it's just what I want to hear.

the ray boogie show is the peak of the week! the classic downtown soulville shaking the end of my work week leads me into cocktail hour with ny underground. the addition of this show to the WFMU lineup is like adding strawberries to a delicious cake... and the funky meters!
