Pussy Control - The Gold Experience vs. Crystal Ball

Pussy Control - The Gold Experience vs. Crystal Ball

.

Which version do you like better and why? What is your gender? (optional)

.

I like the crystal Ball version better because I don't like the female voice in The Gold Experience version which keeps saying 'Are you ready for the best thing you've ever felt?'

I like the Gold Experience version better. For one thing, it was the first one I heard, so it's burned into my brain. Also, the remix-y stuff on Crystal Ball just didn't click with me.

To be honest, my favorite version is the Versace Mix.

Yeah, I forgot that too! The only thing I disliked about Crystal Ball was the remixes. As for the song, I never liked it very much at all. If I had to choose a favourite version, it would be the live version from 1995, because prince introduced it in a funny way, saying things like, take your children outside, it's gonna get nasty! razz And we had Mayte to look at (which gives you an idea of what my gender is.)

I love the gold ex,album version best. Catchy as hell. Didn't like the live version cuss of the backing tape played behind it. Prince used a backing tape for the Pussy Control line. Put me off.

^Yeah, I can understand that. He used a LOT of samples in those days.

Choose the Gold version over the CB version. Still think CB was amixed bag, could've done without the remixes...

I'm a male and i prefer the Gold version. The sound of that kick drum in the beginning & then the bass & keyboard line...WHOO!

I am a woman and I vote for P.Control on TGE album because like someone else said, that version was burned in my brain too- I played that one out back in the day. I always have loved that song. The remix on CB is ok, but I prefer the original.
