To the Advanced-Mobile!

I think "Batdance" is probably Prince's most Advanced song. And the video is Advanced too. You can read the lyrics here. I've never understood the line about the electric chair.

OK.

The line about the electric chair is a reference to another song on the album (in fact called "Electric Chair"). That song is (supposedly) written from the point of view of the Joker, who is saying that if one could be prosecuted for the evil they intend to do in the future, society should go ahead and execute him because he's planning to commit a few crimes.

I thought that was "Minority Report."
