The Top Ten
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!
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
This is one of those songs that someone plays to contemplate and enjoy a starry night!
Simply no reason to dislike this.V 37 Comments
A beautiful song from a highly talented artist showing all his emotions and capabilities not only from his different voices but also from his hands making tunes and beats from his own
This will always be Prince's greatest song. So original and authentic. Powerful and moving. The long version truly conveys the unbelievably powerful emotion of this legendary hit. From the electrifying opening guitar riff to the brilliant synth ending this song will go down as one of the best songs ever.
Can't Sleep without listening this song, a great song with an awesome music video, Prince Rules...
Definitely a top song by Prince and of the whole decade.V 17 Comments
Really good song love the guitar parts in the song - mneilan

This song made me love & enjoy life while you can
Classic a song released in the 80s about 1999 which was the future (at that time) - mneilan
I dreaming when I wrote this forgive me if it goes to long

This song is so unique and genius, and it's one of the songs that shot him to superstardom. - Celestius
Another great song from the legend Prince a real musician. - Drum1997
This song came out of nowhere, made everyone say, oh my, here comes Prince
Love this song! Watching him perform it was even more sensational.V 5 Comments
The Guitar in this song is amazing - mneilan
"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
RIP Prince. In my humble opinion, this is his best, closely followed by 1999 and When Doves Cry
Just cause its absolutely amazing. Then again so are all his songs...V 5 Comments
The lyrics would be the only reason for me to believe in Jesus.
Spiritual and inspirational, prince could sing anything
April is the fourth month of the year. 'U' is the 21st letter in the alphabet. Prince died on April 21st. Coincidence? I think not.
Funny that this should be titled this...because he died for us. He went down swinging, to put it that way. - WonkeyDude98V 1 Comment
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!
Great video tooV 11 Comments
This song replaced "Electric Intercourse" (which is a great song in its own right... well it is outside of the garbage released version! ) on the Purple Rain soundtrack. As good as E.I. was it's hard to believe Prince could replace it with something that's even more brilliant, I guess that's why he is Prince and cannot be replaced.
Best song of all time
Prince always had fashion
I'll love me some prince Yolanda toliverV 3 Comments

An unbelievable disco song
Reminds me of when he appeared on New Girl

An amazing song, melody lyrics, a great hook and flawless singing,only Prince can make instructions funky - "guitars and drums on the one! uh! "
Dirty sexy and very seductive super cool song to dance to fred s
Yes, very underrated but very appreciated by real Prince fans. Why isn't Sometimes it Snows in April or Condition of the Heart on this list? :/
A wonderfully imaginative song with a haunting and memorable beat! A song well ahead of its time!
Awesome tune and beat
HIGHLY inappropriate for kids who listen to Prince. But still a good song
One of my favourite songs - the guitar is brilliant
All prince songs are good - Leafykael
The guitar in this is so damn unreal as hell it’s amazingV 1 Comment
His most underrated song by some way. A brilliant hit.
This song should be in the top 5, it's the only Prince song I listened too >.< - Gehenna
This should be number 1 or 2
This song is grossly underrated.V 1 Comment
Glorious, a remarkable epic opener from the Love Symbol Album and the first for the superstar Prince to re-emerge himself.
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.
The song is weird, strange, freaky, and kinda melancholic and that's exactly why I love it. It's everything I am. This has to be my favorite song ever. The bass is grrreat. And the Camille voice is iconic
So much covered in this song - religion, looks, sexual orientation - that the title for when it came out was perfect - Controversy!
Funk soul brother Prince - TheMarkA1996
Love his music! - DynastiSugarPop

Great song, can't believe it isn't up here yet.
My favorite prince song by far
Probably best ballad ever
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.V 3 Comments
Purple Rain is undoubtedly his best. But only a few knew that he composed this and so I voted this, which easily comes to a second for me. Prince is the big symbol and aura of the 80's funky pop sound, and he is stellar at that. But his ballads are in a whole other realm altogether.
Sparse, tight and funky as hell. This is Prince at his poppiest and best. RIP.
Sexy sexy, shakin dat ass
The video and the song itself are a great reflection of prince's visual and artistic appeal. A true original. R.I.P.
How is this song not higher on the list? It’s literally my favorite Prince song, only tying with “When Doves Cry” and “Little Red Corvette.” R.I.P. Prince! U R a Genius!
High shrills and high thrills - a VERY underrated song!
Heartbreaking To listen to now, like he was forshadowing and singing about his own death
This song has got to be higher than it is now. - EpicJake
Love love love this song!
One of his best...hit number one everywhere. How is it not on this list yet?
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.
Great beat and song
Great song to hear
Whats the matter with yo life, is the poverty bring u down?
It ravished me and liberated my mind.
The song that showcases everything that makes Prince great. Killer vocals, catchy beat, and a hook that makes Partyman a party anthem.
A great song with awesome beat
