Gotta Stop Messin' About" marked the first time Prince released non-album tracks, which, especially as B-sides, would become a prominent part of his career. The song is keyboard dominated, and the lyrics speak of a woman who's constantly "messin' about" with other men. The song contains familiar Prince themes of sexual frustration, masturbation and sexual metaphors. The track consists of two verses and multiple repeats of the chorus. 7. United States – Forty-eight of the fifty states and the federal district are contiguous and located in North America between Canada and Mexico. The U. S. territories are scattered about the Pacific Ocean, the geography, climate and wildlife of the country are extremely diverse.

Gotta Stop (messin' About)" was the follow-up single in the UK to support Prince's third album, Dirty Mind. Surprisingly, the single was not an album track, though it was written at the same time, and possessed a similar sound. This was the first time Prince released a non-album track, and would start a long tradition of releasing them throughout the 1980s.

Reviews:
  • Invissibale
There were two pressing with two covers ... the B&W one and the red "leopard print" one. Both with the same catalogue number. There was something very odd about this single ... not from an album ... only released in the UK ... weird cat. no. (LV 47) ... sank without a trace. I paid a pretty penny for mine in the early 90s
  • Hap
Includes the rare and sought after "Gotta Stop (Messin' About)" as the A1 track.
  • Deorro
Is there the alternative cover for this pressing? This pressing matches up perfectly with my pressing but I have the other cover that shows Princes face. Any hep would be appreciated.
  • Fato
anybody knows if it exist a japanese edition?maybe promo?i'm not totally sure but i saw a GREEN ZEBRAcover of this 12" single on a MILAN FAIR/ EXPOSITION.. someone could have appropriate info.?Please thanx
  • Macill
I have never heard of any Japanese issue of this track. The record you saw was probably a bootleg like the French red vinyl 7"
