Best Prince Songs


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Gold

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.

22 Alphabet St. Alphabet St.

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

23 U Got the Look U Got the Look

The video and the song itself are a great reflection of prince's visual and artistic appeal. A true original. R.I.P.

24 Controversy Controversy

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.

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.
