Description

"U Got the Look" is a song by American musician Prince. It opens the second disc of Prince's 1987 double album Sign “O” the Times, and became the album's highest charting single. Musically, the song is standard 12-bar rock song with emphasis on the contrast between heavy drum beats by a LinnDrum drum machine and Sheila E.'s live percussion, and a vastly distorted almost completely saturated guitar sound.

Although not credited on the single release, the song also features Scottish recording artist Sheena Easton, who sings co-lead with Prince. Prince sings in his sped-up "Camille" voice, although the song was not intended for the Camille album. The lyrics recite the familiar "boy versus girl in the World Series of love" line.

The music video for the song featuring Sheena Easton was filmed in Paris, France, and was directed by American music video director David Hogan. It was included in the Sign “O” the Times film, and features the intro from the extended version of the song. The entire video is portrayed to be a dream sequence by Prince, dozing off in his dressing room. In the US, the single went to number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles tally, the week of October 17, 1987, only behind "Lost in Emotion" by Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam. The single stayed in the top 10 of the chart for six weeks.

Looks like myspace videos have stopped working again, even on their own site. I contacted their support and reported the problem. I'll wait until I hear back from them. I'd hate to delete all those good videos so I'd rather wait a while longer. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
