There are just too many to choose from, but I do love his version of Somewhere Here on Earth from Jay Leno a few years back, and of course, If I was your Girlfriend.

What about Sometimes It Snows In April? Or Condition Of The Heart? Those are two of mt favorite slow jams. My ultimate is Do Me Baby though.

RIP Prince: thank U 4 a funky Time!

How can Adore be overrated. Theres some weird people on here. It's The Beautiful ones for me. Also love the long version of Scandalous with sax on it. There's plenty to choose from which don't sound the same!

Call my name. Great to have Kip guest on this one, he was on a few other great tracks from that era that never came out

The only one that is a ballad in the traditional sense: Dorothy Parker.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

I switch back and forth between "Insatiable" and "Adore."



Pretty much the same for me. I liked Do Me Baby but once I heard Adore I thought that was the ultimate but I'll have to give Insatiable the top prize. It's awesome nearly 30 yrs later

My first thought was Scandalous - because I love it so much but then thought I'd better answer with Do Me, Baby -- but the vote that really needs to be cast is for REVELATION!!!!!! There isn't a more beautiful song.

The grand question is: will you purify yourself in the waters of lake Minnetonka too???
