Favourite Rick James songs?

Just thought it'd be interesting to see what people's favourite Rick James' songs are?. I know a few of his biggest hits, but not really that familiar with most of his stuff.

Mostly big hits for me, but they are great.

.

Cold Blooded

You and I

Mary Jane

Ebony eyes

Give it to me baby

Bustin out of L7

Magic moments.

Looseys Rap (Duet with Roxanne shante)

Square Biz (Duet with Teena Marie as Slick rick)

.

Song I can't stand

.

Party all the time (Duet with eddie murphy)

Superfreak is okay, but heard it to many times and give it to me baby is much better.

Got some kind of love for you, and I don't even know your name

Agree with most of these, but will add his later gem Turn It Out from Urban Rhapsody. That cut is back fo the old, classic funk. Don't think anyone mentioned 17 yet. But Bustin' Out is probably my all-time fave. A lot of the others like Give It to Me Baby, Ghetto Life, Mary Jane, You and I, etc. were just too played into the ground for me. Oh yes, one more I really dig is the long version of Standing on the Top with the Temptations. Sing!

If you've got funk, you've got style.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

Cheers guy's, I just ordered the Anthology 2cd. Notice it still misses a few songs on here, and no "ghetto life" , which is kind of annoying. But should cover most basis

Rick could funk with the best of 'em and he was one of the best Quiet Storm/balladic songwriters too. Rick James deserves major props for sure.

as big as a prince fan as i always was, i considered rick a guy who had all the talent prince did but not the same drive or discipline. always thought that.
