All Day, All Night is one of Prince's best tracks EVER....discuss....

Catchy, urgent, always sonically interesting, propulsive...

The fact that the guy could write and record a song this good in the midst of making and recording PURPLE RAIN and NEVER RELEASE IT HIMSELF is INSANE...

I wish Volume 2 of ORIGINALS has this one for sure...

Brilliant, funky, sexy gem...but not in the top Prince 100.

It's fun, I wouldn't call it one of his best tracks ever

I wonder what would it sound like if it had a Prince/Jill Jones or Susannah duet

Definitely one of my favorites from that era! What's the girl saying at the beginning of the song??

Dig this jam! Jill Jones does it justice, too. I would rank it up there as Jill Jones version of Prince; funk vibe, screams, the whole works.

Agreed.

I like Jill's music, but her version isn't even close. She comes across like she's reading a script, whereas he comes across like he's really that insane.

It's a really good song. It is one of my favorite Prince song "finds" of the past couple of years.

I agree. It starts off really, really stong and I'm thinking, "Wow, this is an amazing song!"

.

But then it never really goes anywhere. Get's a bit repetative. It's one I wish he would have pulled out of the vault and re-worked. It could have added some interesting and different bits as the song went along.

For me, not one of his better songs but still better than most songs by others. It is funky but too repetitive and not much of a melody.

Love this track. It was introduced to me around the time I first started to discover bootlegs and it was one of many tracks I couldn't believe this guywas just tossing off and sitting on. I never really found a high quality sounding version of it, unfortunately.

Never thought it got repetitive or was too long either I guess because he changed up the beats and the layers of it just enough to keep me on guard.
