It's not on the poll.  ???

I chose When Doves Cry...it was one of the first songs I remember getting into as a teen.

Write in:
"Delirious" because I love that crrrazy synth riff!  I can't believe "Delirious" wasn't a choice on the pole.  I mean, I can understand not mentioning his nastier numbers, such as "Sister," "Soft and Wet," and "J*c U Off," but no "Delirious" or "Purple Rain"? Come on!

When Doves Cry. Love that song (but don't care too much for the ending-it does go on for too long)

This is really hard since I love all his music, but I have to go with Little Red Corvette.

Raspberry Beret - Lighthearted tune and video. The fact that Sheena Easton was in the video didn't hurt either. ;)

When You Were Mine is probably Prince's "catchiest" tune (but alas, not a choice on this poll).

So I voted for Little Red Corvette.  ;D

Cream -- with "When Doves Cry" and "7" nipping at its heels.

I chose Little Red Corvette, mainly for it's nostalgia factor.  That song takes me way back!  The man is a genius.  He has more talent in his little finger than most of today's artists combined!  :o

Controversy.
I’m a fan of all of Princes music, but most notably his earlier albums like Controversy and Dirty Mind, two very underrated and unappreciated albums.

Ooh..that's a really good one too.  :D


But, I voted for Let's Go Crazy.

Course, Diamonds and Pearls has a special place for me too, because when hubby and I started dating, he played that album a lot...

I'd have to say When Doves Cry followed by Purple Rain.

Subject: Re: Song Poll: Prince

Written By: KiaBoca07 on 02/06/05 at 7:39 pm

::)..sorry 'bout bringin' up some old topics...

I love Prince's music but some the songs on the list are a bit too obvious(4 me)..but I do like'em!
I'd choose "Others", here are my favs thru-out the l8 '70s & '80s...

In the '70s:
In Love
Crazy You
I'm Yours --that's got some incredible guitar solos in it!!!
(from For You-1978)

Bambi --excellent guitar solos!!!
I Feel For You --Chaka Khan did a gr8 cover of this song in 1984
It's Gonna Be Lonely
(from Prince-1979)

In the '80s:
Uptown
Partyup
(from Dirty Mind-1980)

Sexuality
(from Controversy-1981)

D.M.S.R.
Automatic
Free
(from 1999-1982)

Take Me With U
(from Purple Rain-1984 I like a lot of his other songs from the album but TMWU isn't as obvious plus I really do like this 1 outta all the tracks on PR)

America
(from Around The World In A Day-1985)

Life Can Be So Nice
Mountains
(from Parade-1986)

Housequake --I LOVE this 1!!!
Hot Thing
Adore
(from Sign 'O' The Times-1987)

Alphabet St. --love the music video
I Wish U Heaven --just beautiful
(from Lovesexy-1988)

Le Grind
(from Black Album-recorded in '87 but released in '94)

Scandalous -- ;D love the video 4 it!
(from Batman Soundtrack-1989 & the year I was born  8))


I know I went through all his albums in the '70s & '80s but I only named the ones that you don't hardly see the video for or hardly ever hear..a side from the obvious ones ya hear of'im. I would list some of the B-Sides but I've listed more than enough, I'm sure  ::)

Partyup ...now there's a song the soldiers over in Iraq would feel for... ;)

Cream is honestly the only Prince song I ever liked.  I did enjoy the 1999 album, but I liked it as a whole, not just one song.
