    Very important question: best Prince song?
      [Post deleted]

        @polo Complete agreement.
        inkedmn
          @rands Little Red Corvette gets my vote.
          rands
            @dalton I must disagree with you on this point.

              @rands Sexy MF is a close second
              dalton
                @rands fair enough, even naming the prince catalog is a stretch for me

                  @rands Sometimes It Snows in April

                    @rands got a soft spot for When Doves Cry, followed closely by Purple Rain. On the other hand, worst Prince songs: the entire Batman soundtrack.

                      @rands i don't know, but it was probably on Purple Rain.

                        @rands Purple Rain or Why Don’t You Call Me Anymore.

                          @isaiah @rands Darling Nikki (which is off of Purple Rain).

                            @dalton The Derailers covered that song and rocked it!

                              @rands Thieves in the Temple is my personal favorite - but Purple Rain is pretty great too.

                                @rands “Baby I’m A Star”, hands down.

                                  @rands Definitely ‘When U Were Mine’ (also: Batdance!)
                                  patrickrhone
                                    @rands I would argue Sign O' The Times.

                                      @rands Actually, I change my answer — “777-9311”, by The Time, from “What Time Is It?”, which Prince produced.

                                        @rands Too many to choose from. Love “When Doves Cry,” “Release It,” and “Sign O The Times.”

                                          @bobschulties i tried to google for it, but it was blocked by UMPG. Prince is notoriously not a fan of YouTube

                                            @rands Can the Purple Rain sdtk count as one song?

                                              @brentsimmons @rands Agreed with Brent, When U Were Mine. Followed for me by Sign O’ The Times and I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man.

                                                @rands kind of partial to Mountains

                                                  @rands "Nothing Compares 2 U" but that's a copout. I tried to write a short story about "7" once. So I'm going to say 7.

                                                    @rands it's Adore, but it would take the rest if our lives for me to explain why. Feel like there should be different categories for whether you know >500 Prince songs.

                                                      @rands clearly a trick question Joy in Repetition - all around best, plus that guitar solo Kiss - for the vocals Lets Go Crazy - for the dance floor

                                                          @rands Like the “best sunset”, “best cleavage”, or “best moment”, the answer is: the one you’re currently experiencing.

                                                                  squozen
