Top 10 Best Prince Songs

The Top Ten
1 Purple Rain

I could listen to this song daily and never tire. I can also relate it to many things in my life. May Prince be in the hands of the Most High, and endless thanks for loaning him to us.

This song has multiple meanings. You could study and interpret it endlessly. It's simple but really complex. It's poetic art and is one of my favorite songs EVER!

This is one of those perfect ballads to play and listen to during the last moments of your life.

2 When Doves Cry

This will always be Prince's greatest song. It's 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.

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 '80s, and history, in fact.

Love the song, and I love Prince. His memory will never ever die. I will always remember him as long as I am on this earth.

3 1999

Not a big Prince fan. He ripped off Rick James a lot. This is probably his best.

4 Little Red Corvette

Best song ever!

The video for this song is the best of Prince!

Best song ever! Love the guitar chorus, especially.

5 Kiss

This song is so unique and genius, and it's one of the songs that shot him to superstardom.

Love this song! Watching him perform it was even more sensational.

Another great song from the legend Prince, a real musician.

6 Let's Go Crazy

"Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to celebrate this thing called life."

The intro gives me goosebumps. It's such an amazing song that should be number 2 or 3 because of how Prince can turn that intro into an upbeat dancing song.

I'm not a Prince fan, but this is a really good song. Great guitar, drums, bass, and a nice intro.

Just because it's absolutely amazing. Then again, so are all his songs.

7 I Would Die 4 U

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.

The lyrics are the only reason for me to believe in Jesus.

8 Raspberry Beret

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.

Why is this not higher? A really good upbeat feel and great memories from the time of release.

This is my all-time favorite Prince song. It always boosts my mood!

9 The Beautiful Ones

This song replaced "Electric Intercourse" (which is a great song in its own right, outside of the garbage released version) on the Purple Rain soundtrack. As good as "Electric Intercourse" was, it's hard to believe Prince could replace it with something even more brilliant. I guess that's why he is Prince and cannot be replaced.

This song is perfection and quintessential Prince at its finest.

10 Sign "O" the Times

Not the Harry Styles version, great song. Also, why isn't Starfish and Coffee way higher?

This song has great and original basslines and is overall a very creative and insightful song that still holds true today.

The Contenders
11 I Wanna Be Your Lover

This is endlessly funky. The double entendre makes it so sexy, and the video is great!

One of my all-time favorite songs!

12 Erotic City

No song of Prince's means more to me. It had such a beat. It was dirty yet smooth, and oh so cool to groove to.

How to bring hot and cool together? Just listen here. And the refrain stays in your ears forever. Thanks for this great stuff, Prince Roger Nelson!

Incredibly funky song. That bass. That groove. Brilliant.

13 The Most Beautiful Girl in the World

This one should be way higher! At least top 5!

This must be next to Purple Rain. The lyrics and melodies are amazing, but the falsetto vocals towards the end shoot the song among the top 10 for me.

All his elements are present in this song.

14 Mountains

An amazing song, with melody, lyrics, a great hook, and flawless singing. Only Prince can make instructions funky: "Guitars and drums on the one! Uh!"

15 Cream

My favorite song. It shows many sides of him.

I just think this song has a great slow beat and personifies Prince and his charisma.

16 Controversy

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

17 Take Me With U

This song is so awesome and great to sing along to.

18 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.

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! You are a genius!

19 Darling Nikki

Highly inappropriate for kids who listen to Prince, but still a good song.

20 7

4+2+1= 7. Today's date is 4/21 of 2016. Seven is the best of all!

21 Fallinlove2nite
22 Gett Off

Dirty, sexy, and very seductive. Super cool song to dance to, Fred S.

23 The Dance
24 Computer Blue
25 Still Waiting

I love all of Prince's music, but if I had to choose, this is my favorite.
