Prince's best videos

What do you think are P.'s best videos. He does a low budget, low frills stuff, but he's done some classics, too. I did some searching and didn't see this being discussed recently. Here's my top 3 at the moment:

3. 1999 -- this vid broke him as a major artist, I got a lion in my pocket and baby he's ready to roar facial expression is brilliant
2. D & P -- classy & dreamy, creates a great little universe
1. Kiss -- quirky & funky, just like the song
"Love & honesty, peace & harmony"

One of my favourites is Black Sweat - that is the video that got me hooked onto Prince.

Diamonds & Pearls is beautiful too.

Thank you Prince for every note you left behind 💜

18 and over is funny and pretty sexy. Kiss is very cool because of how fun it is. Partyman is genius. Love Violet the organ grinder haha because it's prince at his sexiest and the weirdness really suits the song.

Most Prince videos, you have to be a fan to actualy think they're any good. The songs are great, but the videos are meh.

However, he has a few good ones:

1. Kiss - I think this is his best

2. Musicology - Great video. Captures the mood.

3. The Morning Papers

4. Melt with U - What a nasty video lol

5. U Got the Look

Maybe its because its new - but I really dig his new video Rock 'n Roll love affair.
He is so cool in this video. Take a look at how much in control he is. I really love that - it kind of gives an extra value to a great track. Like he has done so Many times...

I love the video for Empty Room it's so haunting.

Some of my other favorites are Automatic, eye Wish U Heaven, Thieves In The Temple(Long Version), Musicology(cute kid), Right The Wrong, Dinner With Delores, Dolphin, LoveSign, Willing & Able.

When eye go 2 a Prince concert or related event it's all heart up in the house but when eye log onto this site and the miasma of bitchiness is completely overwhelming!

Actually ... well, I will not dissemble and want to say what I really think: Prince could shoot a lot more entertaining videos, especially in the 80's and early 90's, when videos still mattered boxed

but I really love some of his videos:

Insatiable
Controversy
Raspberry Beret
When Doves Cry
Bat Dance
Musicology
Kiss
Diamonds And Pearls

That's a short list. I'm not a fan of most of his later videos. They generally look cheap and highschoolish.

1)Kiss

2)Raspberry Beret

3)Thieves in the temple

4)When Doves Cry

5)Batdance

6)Partyman

7)Cream

8Gett off

9)7

I omitted any video that was a "live" performance.

Although I enjoy videos like insatiable-the editing is horrible on it.

99.9% of everything I say is strictly for my own entertainment

My favourite is AUTOMATIC

That bondage stuff is hilarious and the torture scene is hilarious and the fact he is singing with that ridiculous dominatrix cap on. I love many others, but this thing is in a league of its own. I don't imagine that it would have got much rotation given how the theme of it would have been perceived by younger viewers.

The whole bondage/dominatrix theme was fairly new in 1982, but as the 80s wore on the theme became more common with Annie Lennox and Grace Jones projecting the dominatrix image (Missionary Man) anyone.

Its also great because Automatic is a good song and he has not truncated the fuck out of the song for the video, its nearly as long as the album track and very watchable as for once, Prince is at the whims of Lisa and Jill Jones.

Got some kind of love for you, and I don't even know your name

Gotta show my love for Alphabet St, which usually tops peoples' Worst lists - but I love it, and think it has a great sense of fun that really suits the song.

My fave overall is I Wish U Heaven, and I don't think anybody can dispute the greatness of U Got the Look, Little Red Corvette, and Kiss.

I give Prince credit for not overmaking his music videos. Some artists began turning every music video they shot into a mini-feature with celebrity cameos and the songs(quality or topics) didn't warrant that treatment at all. Prince just seemed to have fun with it all and never took it too seriously.
