Best Prince Songsanthonybecerra831
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!
Simply no reason to dislike this.
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
Best of the best...V 37 CommentsUListen to Sample
Hard to decide between this and Purple Rain but this one is great with the high pitched dove cries.
WHY IS THIS PUT BELOW PURPLE RAIN?
This has to be his most iconic song, and the best song in 1980s.
Stunning piece of music! An absolute legend at his best. Strong intro, a catchy yet non-annoying chorus and one of the best songs of the 80's, and history in factV 21 CommentsUListen to Sample
1999 wasn't his best album, but this was definitely his best song. - GameRiderTom
Really good song love the guitar parts in the song - mneilan

How did prince make this song so good!
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 PrinceV 6 CommentsUListen to Sample
2 master guitar solos, amazing lyrics and a coincidence in it (Lyrics say to not let the elevator break you down and where did he die? ) + the beat is top.
I’m not a Prince fan, but this is a really good song. Great guitar, drums, bass and nice intro. - Userguy44
Don’t even need to say anything, amazing song
The Guitar in this song is amazing - mneilanV 8 CommentsUListen to Sample
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.
It's got the Boom and the Bam and the Bim Bam BomV 1 CommentUListen to Sample
This is the second best song of prince
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!V 12 CommentsUListen to Sample
This song is perfection and quintessential Prince at its finest.
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 fashionV 4 CommentsUListen to Sample

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
Under rated.UListen to Sample

Love all of prince music but if I had to choose this is my favorite.UListen to Sample
Glorious, a remarkable epic opener from the Love Symbol Album and the first for the superstar Prince to re-emerge himself.
WoUListen to Sample
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 iconicUListen to Sample
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! - DynastiSugarPopV 3 CommentsUListen to Sample
Great song, can't believe it isn't up here yet.
My favorite prince song by far
Probably best ballad ever
Best ballad everV 3 CommentsUListen to Sample
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.UListen to Sample
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.UListen to Sample
Sparse, tight and funky as hell. This is Prince at his poppiest and best. RIP.UListen to Sample
The best of prince. Great song.
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!UListen to Sample
