Exodus Has Begun is the deepest funk for me. I'd also add Erotic City to that list, but few of his songs are as nasty and funky as Exodus for me. That is drippin' with Clinton! lol

The expanded version of my book PRINCE and The Purple Rain Era Studio Sessions 1983-1984 was released in November 2018. (www.amazon.com/gp/product/1538114623/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i0) or www.facebook.com/groups/1...104195943/

Let's Work, I really love the album version but my favourite is the live version at the Capital Theatre, Passaic NJ (1982).

And that's exactly the problem, Madhouseman! The Exodus Has Begun is just Prince/ TAFKAP redoing the whole George Clinton/P-Funk catalogue. He even quotes the Master (like George said, get satisfied...)
The funkiest Prince songs in my opinion, are the ones where he's Prince at his funkiest best in a way that George or Sly or Bootsy never were:
Good Love
Kiss
La La La He He Hee
Irresistible Bitch
Scarlet Pussy
Days of Wild
The Gold Standard

"The Exodus Has Begun". Period.

However, in a close second, 13 years earlier, it's "D.M.S.R.". There's funky stuff, of course. But fonky...there's only a very, very few.

Just when U think U've got more than enough, that's when it all up and flies away.

I love all of the ones mentioned.

I would also add 319, 3121, F.U.N.K., and his original version of the "Sex of It" (as well as his live versions of Mutiny)

Damn, you know your stuff NorthC.
I agree 100% with your comment and your list. Although, Good Love doesn't belong in there for me. Scarlet Pussy is fantastic!!

It's extremely hard to just pick one favorite FUNKY Prince song.

So for me I would have to say:

Shockadelica

Housequake

DMSR

Rebirth of The Flesh

Days of Wild (C.Ball version)
