STANDARD MUSICOLOGY QUESTIONNAIRE

The Powers that Be have let it known that they are not happy with the proliferation of aimless, repetitive musicology threads that force busy Orgers to visit a thousand pages to have an idea of everyone's opinions and thoughts. I have therefore taken it upon myself to make your input available at one handy location. We want to know what you think and the Org is such a slow loader these days, so be a peach and answer the following questions.

What has been your reaction to Musicology?
- Sheer joy and and exhilaration.
- I was really pleased.
- It was ok.
- Mostly negative -- I only like a few songs.
- I was terribly disappointed.
- I don't need to listen to it ever again.

What is your favorite song so far?

What is the song you dislike the most?

Which songs would you replace on the album?

Which songs do you think might grow on you?

Do you think Musicology will be a chart-topper?

What is the last Prince album you actually enjoyed?

Good idea.



What has been your reaction to Musicology?
- I was really pleased.

What is your favorite song so far?
A Million Days

What is the song you dislike the most?
What Do U Want Me 2 Do? ...sounds out of place to me on a album where a song that sounds out of place shouldn't sound out of place, if you know what I mean. I wasn't wild about it when it was released through the club, either.

Which songs would you replace on the album?
See answer above. Replace it with "U Want Me."

Which songs do you think might grow on you?
On The Couch. Already has grown on me after hearing it live in Dallas.

Do you think Musicology will be a chart-topper?
Don't know, but it would be nice for the man. If it doesn't, it won't be for lack of exposure.

What is the last Prince album you actually enjoyed?

What has been your reaction to Musicology?

I was really pleased.

What is your favorite song so far?

Illusion, Coma, Pimp And Circumstance

What is the song you dislike the most?

Reflection - But only because the acoustic version with Wendy was so lovely.

Which songs would you replace on the album?

Cinnamon Girl. It sounds like a bad Fleetwood Mac B-Side.

Which songs do you think might grow on you?

If Eye Was The Man In Ur Life

Do you think Musicology will be a chart-topper?

The album - yes. I honestly believe it could hit No. 1 in the UK Album Chart. The single won't do as well if there's no exclusive track on there.

What is the last Prince album you actually enjoyed?

From beginning to end, 'Batman'.

What has been your reaction to Musicology?

I was really pleased.

What is your favorite song so far?

I'd say it's a tie between The Marrying Kind and On The Couch

What is the song you dislike the most?

What Do U Want Me 2 Do. I didn't like it that much when it first came out.

Which songs would you replace on the album?

WDUWM2D. Maybe Reflection too. I like having it on the album, but it isn't a good final track, and having heard it a million times before makes it feel out of place.

Which songs do you think might grow on you?

ICPC, Dear Mr. Man, and Musicology already are.

Do you think Musicology will be a chart-topper?

I dunno. My sister, whose Prince collection consists of Purple Rain, ATWIAD, Diamonds and Pearls, and The Hits 1 thought it was fantastic, so maybe the album will click with the casual Prince fan.

What is the last Prince album you actually enjoyed?[/quote]

I've enjoyed much of his recent output, but the last album I really thought was excellent the whole way through was The Truth.

- Life o the party - It's not that bad, just that P can write songs like this in his sleep.
I expect more from him now than this b-side stuff.

Which songs would you replace on the album?
LOP

Which songs do you think might grow on you?
The Marrying kind has really grown on me. Wasn't big on this track but I'm coming around now.

Do you think Musicology will be a chart-topper?
Yeah I actually do. At first no, but it's a really easy listening and fun CD.
I think if the single takes off it has big potential.
It's as good if not better than anything

What is the last Prince album you actually enjoyed?
I would say Rave.
I just can't believe all the things people say !

On The Couch

Which songs would you replace on the album?

Probably 'On The Couch'. It's OK, but I really don't think that it goes with the over-all flow of the album

Which songs do you think might grow on you?

Dear Mr. man (I actually like it musically, it's the overly political lyrics I have to get used too)

Do you think Musicology will be a chart-topper?

I think it'll do better than anything he's put out in the last 10 years, but I don't know if it'll chart very high

What is the last Prince album you actually enjoyed?

Thoroughly? It would be 'Gold'. Overall? I actually find something to enjoy about all of his albums.
If I want your opinion, I'll beat it outta ya!

Given the creative distribution, officially, no. But I'm quite sure that isn't really what Prince is looking for.

What has been your reaction to Musicology?
- I was fairly pleased.

What is your favorite song so far?
Dear Mr. Man, What do U want me 2 do and The Marrying Kind are quite special, but I'll have to go with Dear Mr. Man ultimately.

What is the song you dislike the most?
Life O' The Party. When you've written 1999, it's no longer a good idea to write a "party song".

Which songs would you replace on the album?
Life O the Party and, so far, A Million Days -- so many like this song and I just find it annoying. Cinnamon Girl is this close from being in this category, but is rescued by its thought-provoking lyrics.

Which songs do you think might grow on you?
Perhaps I'll grow to like If Eye was the Man in your life and A Million Days a bit more. I already like the former well enough. All tracks besides Life O' the Party and A Million Days sound great or at least decent. The slow jams and funk elements are right on.

Do you think Musicology will be a chart-topper?
It depends on how much play the single and the video of Musicology get. Given the fact it doesn't seem to fit rdio formats, and taking into consideration the load of good press Prince is getting these days, I'd say the chances are about 50/50. It could happen, but there's still a lot of odds to beat.

What is the last Prince album you actually enjoyed?
Musically, it was TRC. Overall, I'd have to go back to TGE.

What is your favorite song so far?
If I Was The Man In Your Life. I can not stop listening to this song! It's too catchy; could be a hit like Maroon 5's "This Love."

What is the song you dislike the most?
Probably Life O' The Party. It's not awful like Jughead or anything, but it's my least favourite so far.

Which songs would you replace on the album?
None should be replaced, but some could use a little remixing ("Life O' The Party")

Which songs do you think might grow on you?
On The Couch is cool, and getting cooler the more I listen to it

Do you think Musicology will be a chart-topper? I don't know about topping the charts, but it will definitely be his most successful album in many years. And unlike Rave and Gold, he's got positive publicity and a tour going. And unlike Emancipation, the label isn't likely to fold this time. smile

What is the last Prince album you actually enjoyed? Musicology is honestly the best Prince record I've heard in some time...

That's tough. I sure hope so. The record is easy to listen to...maybe too easy.

Symbol. I respect TRC but I only "enjoy" a few songs.
