BEST 20 (DIRTY MIND - SOTT)

To most PRINCE fans DIRTY MIND - SIGN O' THE TIMES are considered the "holy 7" of albums from his golden years... Many argue LOVESEXY should belong in that category... But for this threads sake we will stop at SOTT...

If you could make a list of the BEST 20 SONGS from those albums only ( no unreleased or b-side material) what would your list be?

- DIRTY MIND

- WHEN YOU WERE MINE

- CONTROVERSY

- DO ME BABY

- LITTLE RED CORVETTE

- LADY CAB DRIVER

- AUTOMATIC

- SOMETHING IN THE WATER (DOES NOT COMPUTE)

- COMPUTER BLUE

- THE BEAUTIFUL ONES

- WHEN DOVES CRY

- PURPLE RAIN

- RASPBERRY BERET

- ANOTHERLOVERHOLENYOHEAD

- SOMETIMES IT SNOWS IN APRIL

- SIGN O' THE TIMES

- IF I WAS YOUR GIRLFRIEND

- STRANGE RELATIONSHIP

- I COULD NEVER TAKE THE PLACE OF YOUR MAN

- ADORE

But! Anotherlover was a single, and i keep thinking Strange Relationship was a single cause of that Npgmusic digital single with era apropriate​ artwork and all.

I'm sorry if that came across as dismissive of your list, that wasn't the case at all, hell it's fucking Prince, all those songs are good. I meant for it to be just at face value: "no 1999? ultra sad face sad" lol. I was a little inebriated last night. Many apologies!!!

I've had three exams today and this was the hardest thing I've had to do. The original draft was 30 songs long but I somehow managed to cut it down to the following 20:
• When You Were Mine
• Controversy
• Do Me Baby
• Ronnie, Talk to Russia
• Jack U Off
• Little Red Corvette
• All The Critics Love U In New York
• The Beautiful Ones
• Computer Blue
• When Doves Cry
• Around The World In A Day
• Kiss
• Sometimes it Snows in April
• Sign O The Times
• Play in The Sunshine
• The Ballad of Dorothy Parker
• It
• If I Was Your Girlfriend
• I Could Never Take The Place of Your Man
• It's Gonna Be a Beautiful Night
Must be something in the water we drink.

This I agree with... I don't think I could name 20 songs that I don't like either! I will try and work on a top 20 list...that will be difficult! lol
