"Dirty Mind" was the follow-up single in the U.S., and title track to Prince's third album, released in 1980.[1] The song is built around a keyboard riff created by Doctor Fink, which dominates the song. The demo-like[who?] song lacks a chorus, and is a stark departure of the smooth R&B sound of Prince's first two albums. The lyrics concern sexual thoughts, which are fairly representative of the other songs from the album. The single's B-side is the ballad "When We're Dancing Close and Slow", from the previous year's Prince. "Dirty Mind" only reached number sixty-five on the soul chart and did not crack the Hot 100.[2]Along with the tracks "Uptown" and "Head", "Dirty Mind" reached number five on the dance charts.[3]
