Me too...damn good song. I wish he had a video for LOVE, Breakdown, Rockhard in a funky place (that would hysterical), Way Back Home, Pink Cashmere, the Future, and his version of Shhh. There are so many songs he should have had videos for and a few songs I wish he hadn't made videos for.

Soft and Wet, Just as long as we're together, even a performance video of each would be fine, like the I wanna be your lover one, beafroed young Prince playing the guitar, then the keyboards, bass and singing.

.

Even for Just as long as were together, one where he is dressed up and running around a nice house setting up a romantic dinner for two, with him lighting candles and bringing out the wine, while some beautiful girl comes in and he removes her coat for her.

This is the place where emotions grow. 24 Feelings all in a row, its alright, its alright

Way Back Home, Clouds, This Could B Us, Revelation, 1000 X's & O's, Space, Letitgo...

There was a shirt at the recent exhibition that was reported to be from the original, unreleased Pink Cashmere video, so one at least exists in the vault

If he would have just filmed some more of his videos outside of Paisley, songs like ICP&C would be quite funny in video form.

With a goofy line dance and the whole nine yards, I feel like this one would have really caught on. Missed opportunity.

For me? None.

I have never seen a music video I liked.... I have never heard a song via a music video that wouldn't have been better heard without a video attached, detracting from it.

There was one shot for this... It had a 60's hippie theme to it, never officially released but it's made rounds on the web.

Yep the full version is out there. It's so fun and is a great throwback to 60s and 70s variety shows like Sonny & Cher, The Smother's Brothers, Laugh-In, Dinah Shore, Mike Douglas, Donny & Marie, etc.

I'm going to assume you're being facetious since we all know there is a video to this.

It's most curious there are not videos for "Pop Life" but there is some wannabe-hippy bullshit for "Paisley Park".

But, the glaring omissions are:

Pop Life

Adore (which also begged to be a single)

Do Me, Baby

Something In The Water

Take Me With U (as a real duet)

Forever In My Life (could have been a very cool in-studio live recording; much like he sort of did with "Willing And Able" or George Michael" did with "Round Here").
Pope

Strange Relationship (which was also a single-in-the-waiting)

Pink Cashmere

Power Fantastic

The Future (he should have been in an outdoor concert setting on the Batman set and made it a side story the way Pixar does with their Shorts on movie DVDs which sometimes coincide with the actual movie, like Wall-E's "Burn-E" short).

Electric Chair (continuation of the above)


Honorable Mention to "Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad" for simply not having more airplay with that cloud bass.

The thing is, the vast majority of Prince videos are just performance videos. Pretty boring, really. He wasn't breaking ground with anything. Think about it, the biggest "ooohhss" some fans have offered is that he is wearing jeans in "Little Red Corvette" (arguably the last time we really saw him in denim besides some SOTT stuff), and the blue screen suit for "Raspberry Beret". Stuff like "Take Me With U", "I Would Die 4 U/Baby I'm A Star", "America", "I Could Never Take The Place Of You Man", "Anotherloverholenyohead", were all lifted from various concerts or films. Anything from SOTT or Graffiti Bridge and most of Purple Rain existed solely to promote the movie.

"Betcha By Golly Wow" was the closest he'd had to a real storyline in a video to that point; but that doesn't dismiss stuff like "Diamonds and Pearls" with its beautiful imagery, "Gett Off"'s onslaught of remix videos, the fuckfest that were videos for prince album. "Batdance" was visually fun and interesting, yet "I Wish U Heaven" was another blue screen orgy. "Glam Slam" felt like it was shot on the leftover "Control" set for Janet's video, but it's still 100x more interesting than the duo boredom of "Dirty Mind" and "Uptown". Hell, even Michael Jackson shot "Don't Stop" and "She's Out Of My Life" on the same day in the same studio but had the good sense to change clothes.

Prince really took a miser's approach to video making. It's like he wanted to spend as little money as possible on any production. It was only when WB was doing a bigger push for a reboot to this sales that more money seemed to be involved (eg: Lovesexy, Diamonds & Pearls, Batman).

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

The joke was: the existing video sucks so bad it's actually the song I wish there was a(nother) video for.
