Best Prince Songs


The Contenders: Page 2XW


His most underrated song by some way. A brilliant hit.

I always ask myself, 'What's the use of money if you ain't gonna break the mold? ' when I make a desision.
Powerful messages and the melody lines.
Great guitar solo.

22When You Were Mine

High shrills and high thrills - a VERY underrated song!

Sparse, tight and funky as hell. This is Prince at his poppiest and best. RIP.


Reminds me of when he appeared on New Girl

So much covered in this song - religion, looks, sexual orientation - that the title for when it came out was perfect - Controversy!

Great song, can't believe it isn't up here yet.

It is number one on the SOTT list, but needs to be number one full stop, best song by anyone period. Prince sang it at the concert I went too and winked at me.

One of his best...hit number one everywhere. How is it not on this list yet?

32The Arms of Orion
34I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man

So simple. So delightful. The best version of this song is found in the 'sign of the times' concert movie. The song's guitar solo blew me away. I started to learn the guitar soon afterwards. Still do. Thanks P

Excellent song, unforgettable melody, great lyrics. One of the best pieces of a masterpiece album.
