Prince's funkiest, grooviest dance song???!!

Let me paint a picture. You're at a birthday party of a friend who's husband has rented out a beautiful room at a downtown hotel. It's sort of the middle of the evening and everyone has had a few cocktails but spirits are still a bit subdued and reserved...but everyone is just looking for a reason to let loose and %*>€ing DANCE but the DJ so far has played millineal crap. The host, your buddy, asks you to go to the DJ and "shake this %}{# up!". You go over, hand the DJ a $10 piece, tell him to "turn it up to eleven" and play....

(Insert Prince song)

Mine would be:

D.M.S.R.

What would yours be??

Whenever I request Prince, I always say "anything but Kiss." I like Kiss but it's almost always the DJ's go-to.

Songs I've heard DJs play at clubs/parties (not counting Prince shows):

Soft and Wet

Lady Cab Driver (I'd requested Prince last NYE and luckily the DJ had taste)

Controversy

1999 (at a wedding)

Cream

...and of course Kiss a million times

Songs I've played as a lounge DJ:

Dirty Mind

Let's Work

Irresistible Bitch

DMSR

17 Days

Erotic City

Let's Go Crazy

I Would Die 4 U

Baby, I'm a Star

Raspberry Beret

Hot Thing

I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man

Feel U Up

Sexy MF

Probably others...

Most positive responses (people dancing in a non-dancing environment): Irresisistible Bitch, Raspberry Beret, Sexy MF

Seriously its the most simple tunes that get folk moving..

Depending on how inebriated the people are or how risque you wanna be...

MUSICOLOGY (a classy tune that gets most folk going)

Second...

SEXY MF

and lastly my fav...

LETS WORK (total pure raw funk and something about those opening lines that gets me everytime)

I've had my eyes on you eye ever since you walked in the room
C'mon and take my hand, don't try to understand
Oh baby nothing can stop us now, I'm gonna show you how
Show you how to work cool

Oh another last mention is...

THE MAX headbang

Mountains. The long version. If only because it starts with: "Hey U! Get out on this dance floor!"

Lots of good ones already but I definitely

would add Uptown, especially if the party

is made up of Whites, Blacks, and Puerto Ricans.

Extraloveable.

Aaaaaactualy...

Some of the lyrics would offend people (you know which lyrics I mean, right?), and that would really stink up the party. Maybe best to fade it out early, before it gets to that bit. Or play Xtraloveable Reloaded instead, that's still stupendously groovy.

It's been too long since you've had your ass kicked properly:

I'm surprised no one has mentioned, "I Wanna Be Your Lover", yet. The intro with the high rhythm guitar and the groove screams "Dance! Now!" to me. smile
