"You Can't Fight Passion, When Passion Is Hot"...

Sugar Walls is a song written and co-produced by Alexander Nevermind, aka, Prince... Originally released in 1984, the song was taken from the album, A Private Heaven which featured a cover version of Love and Affection, a ballad written and originally recorded by Joan Armatrading.

It has been claimed that Sugar Walls is a euphemism for the walls of the vagina... If this is so, is this then a song about the sweet tasting walls of Sheena Easton's vagina? (I say sweet because sugar is generally sweet)... I'll admit I've never stopped to decipher the lyrics in this song so I can't render an opinion as to the mental imaginary the writer of the song intended for the listener. I will say this though... The groove is tuff!!! and I like it.

Despite, or may be due to the lyrical content, Sugar Walls was a Top 10 hit in the US, peaking at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and it topped the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart for 1 week in February, 1985.
