Yeah, "I Wonder" doing so well is indeed thrilling! This whole batch is jaw-droppingly good.

I agree, of those 20 trax, only Pink Cashmere is out of place, the rest are just blow your head good. Even if any other artist did one song that great, their career as a legend would be assured, but this is merely Princes Hot 100, lower ranks. The Top 20 songs will be like Dynamite.

.

I still have a hunch #1 will be Purple Rain or When Doves Cry, so predictable.

  • 144. Insatiable (1991): 32 votes, 7.96 average, 10.36 points

Two of his most sensual songs fell outside the top 100.

  • 140. The Future (1989): 32 votes, 7.98 average, 10.42 points
  • 138. Eye No (1988): 31 votes, 8.01 average, 10.43 points

These two are two of the best he ever made. "Future"'s in my top 75 at least. "Eye No," in my top 10.

  • 135. International Lover (1982): 32 votes, 7.99 average, 10.47 points

Wow. For real? This low?

  • 116. Batdance (1989): 34 votes, 8.07 average, 10.92 points

Too high.

  • 102. Rockhard in a Funky Place (1987): 26 votes, 8.46 average, 11.41 points

Waaaay too low!!!

Don't understand this one. Nice cut and all, but still.

  • 86. Good Love (1986): 28 votes, 8.51 average, 11.81 points

Could be a top 25 track.

  • 81. It (1987): 31 votes, 8.44 average, 11.93 points

A top 200 song, maybe, not a top 100 IMO.

For me, it's "Good Love" that lags. I rated it a 6 yet all of the others in that group at least an 8.

Interesting, because I really love it. I think I gave it a 10 and Pink Cashmere a 4. The rest are all straight 8.5 to 10 stuff. So far I think all the songs from 150 downwards, a good 80% are 9 and 10 and the next 15% are 8 or 8.5.

.

By the Top 20 - I suspect all will be 10s and maybe 1 or 2 9's and 9.5's.

Really surprised to find these ranked here, especially "Gold" and "Letitgo."

I've never been a big fan of "Empty Room."

Some of the top classics have come out now. Have noticed the average score for a song has climbed from about 7.10 at 365 to around 7.30 at 300, 7.70 at 200, 8.10 at 100 and now around 8.80 at 41. Although scores are all over the place, as songs with less votes and higher average scores (Say 21 votes at 8.23 average, can be below a song with 37 votes at 7.96).

.

I was hoping to see some predicitons at some point!

"Insatiable" already placed at 144, and "America" at 84.

There are some from your certain list which didn't make the top 365, and there are some from your possible list which made the top 40 (including a few in the top 10!).

I was hoping to see some predicitons at some point!

"Insatiable" already placed at 144, and "America" at 84.

There are some from your certain list which didn't make the top 365, and there are some from your possible list which made the top 40 (including a few in the top 10!).

Oh lawd, I knew this would happen, reading between the lines.

Ah Moonbeam, you teaser you wink

No. Just . . . no.

no too high or too low?


Too high, IMO.

There were dozens of better songs ranked much lower.

Well Hot Thing was at 40 and its in my certain list.

.

Have a feeling the B sides 17 days and She's always in my hair are the Top 10s. I should have put these in the certain list, but forgot about them and hastily added them to possible as some of the Purple Rain and The Hits type Level 2/5 fans may not have heard them.

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

Thank you to the OP. I really enjoy this post. Maybe the CPA in me finds comfort in all the numbers. It's been a welcome diversion this week.

Missing is Blue Light. I'm thinking if it hasn't shown up by now that it will not. Unless I missed it.

It is such a sweet, melodic song. I always wished for more reggae from him.

As a statistician, I get the obsession with all things numerical. smile This has been so enjoyable for me, and a nice way for me to cope with the 1st anniversary.
