The Top Ten

1 Purple Rain Purple 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

Amazing song that was a hit from his soundtrack. - Drum1997

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...

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!

One of my absolute all time favorite songs. Boy there are so many great songs, every song brings back so many memories. R.I.P. to one of the most talented artist of our time.

9 I Would Die 4 U I Would Die 4 U

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.

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!

20 If I Was Your Girlfriend If 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.

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
