Best Prince Songs


The Top TenXW

1Purple Rain

This song has multiple nings. You could Study and interpret it endlessly. Its simple, but really complex. Its poetic art and is one of my favorite songs EVER!

This is one of those songs that someone plays to contemplate and enjoy a starry night!

I've never been a fan of Prince, but I've always respected him. He may have been a Prince, but he died a king. Rest in peace. - WonkeyDude98

The Guitar in this song is amazing - mneilan

RIP Prince. In my humble opinion, this is his best, closely followed by 1999 and When Doves Cry

"Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to celebrate this thing called life."
The intro gives me goose bumps. It's such an amazing songs that should be 2 or 3 because of how prince can turn that intro into an upbeat dancing song

Just cause its absolutely amazing. Then again so are all his songs...

Why is this not higher? A really good upbeat feel and great memories from the time of release.

Hard to pick a favorite, but this one is mine. What put this one over the top for me is the subject matter of the song, it has a wonderful quaintness to it.

This is my all time favorite Prince song. It always boost my mood!

By far the best Prince song! - MaxAttack333

Incredibly funky song. That bass. That groove. Brilliant.

No song of Prince's means more to me, it had such a beat... it was dirty yet smooth, and oh so cool to groove to...

19If I Was Your Girlfriend

Gender bending, register switching, reversing twisting, back to front perfection. Prince's emblem. So surprised it's not here already

I love this guy. He is the best artist of all ages. No one can ever take his place!

Describes the best that a relationship between a man and women can be. Deep---Guys-listen closely and learn.
