Prince's official music video for 'Dolphin,' off of "The Gold Experience"

Listen to your favorite Prince tracks, all in one place:

About the track:

In both the video for the song and a live performance of “Dolphin” on The Late Show With David Letterman in December 1994, Prince (who was then identified solely by his unpronounceable symbol) appeared with the word “SLAVE” scrawled on his right cheek, a reference to his ongoing fight for artistic freedom and public battle with his label, Warner Bros. Records.

Follow Prince:

As with the song “Endorphinmachine,” “Dolphin” was written and recorded well in advance of the release of 1995’s The Gold Experience and had already become a familiar part of Prince and the NPG’s live shows by the time the album version was available to listeners.

The lyrics for “Dolphin” find Prince exploring spirituality and the idea of reincarnation, and the video depicts him in a similarly reflective mood, perched on a satin bed with his iconic gold symbol guitar as members of the NPG perform behind him.

The video for “Dolphin” was released on September 30, 1994, almost a full year before The Gold Experience, and made history as the first video to be played on VH1 Europe. The video was later offered as a download to subscribers of Prince’s pioneering NPG Music Club in 2001, released as part of the NPG Music Club Edition #11.

The Gold Experience has to be Prince's most underrated album.
Bryan Saylor
Can we just talk about a couple things here?!?! First, how GREAT this song is?! Second, how GREAT the Gold Experience is?! Third, how happy the Prince fans are for finally getting an official release of this video to You Tube!

He was so good, you almost can't see all the talent. Makes it look so easy....

Don't appreciate the estate having his iconic music in cheesy commercials and neither does Prince!

Prince is my all time favorite artist. I own everything he’s ever released and most everything unreleased.
I listen to him so often that sometime I get burnt out, but for some reason I never get tired of this song.
I loved it from the moment I heard it in September of 1995.
LOVE FIST.
the new prince; the whole world saw a new prince in the 90s

The week P passed away I had a dream of him and this is the song that played in my dream I woke up singing it with tears in my eyes 💜🦈

Lyrics
How beautiful do the words have to be
Before they conquer every heart?
How will you know if I'm even in the right key
If you make me stop before I start?

[Chorus]
If I came back as a dolphin
Would you listen to me then?
Would you let me be your friend?
Would you let me in?
You can cut off all my fins
But to your ways I will not bend
I'll die before I let you tell me how to swim
And I'll come back again as a dolphin

Why does my brother have to go hungry
When you told him there was food for all?
This is the man that stands next to the man
That stands to catch you when you fall (Oh!)

[Chorus]
If I came back as a dolphin
Would you listen to me then?
Would you let me be your friend?
Would you let me in?
You can cut off all my fins
But to your ways I will not bend
I'll die before I let you tell me how to swim
And I'll come back again as a dolphin

If I'm under water, will you find me? (Find me)
Will you shine a light and try to guide me?
It's happened before, I've knocked on your door
But you wouldn't let me in
How beautiful do the words have to be
Before they conquer every heart? (Oh!)

[Chorus]
If I came back as a dolphin
Would you listen to me then?
Would you let me be your friend?
Would you let me in?
You can cut off all my fins
But to your ways I will not bend
I'll die before I let you tell me how to swim
And I'll come back again as a dolphin

[Outro]
Dolphin
As a dolphin
As a dolphin
As a dolphin

The six people that gave this a thumbs-down doesn't recognize the master at his finest. Love Dolphin!! This was his message to Warner Brothers. The man walked to the beat of his own drum. Just absolutely amazing! Keep the videos coming! <3

Anyone else thought Mayte was a little too extra with the dance routines?

An incredibly underated tune. The slide guitar solo is melodic genius. The great man was on fire on this album. As inventive as his classics.

Prince is not dead ✌✌✌

If this were done by a White band at the time, it would have been a major hit. Just saying.
John Hendricks
Prince got a body of work to last a life time. This guy didn't waste time when it came making music.

Michael B played the crap out those drums
