Prince prefaced the announcement by stating, "Oh I love this song," when glancing at the envelope's contents.

** Most of "State of the Art" is played on a Lowrey Cotillion, a 70's home organ (famous for being used by Music/TheWho on "Baba O'Riley" and "Won't Get Fooled Again"), which is also what the song is about.
