Is Everybody Loves me Prince worst song?

When 2010 came out, I had listened to that song once. Today I checked on utube and listened to it again. Well, I thought it was somebody covering Prince. Then I checked another video and found the same song. I still couldn't believe it was Prince, so I checked few more....

Still I couldn't believe it was Prince... lol

Then I had to check my own mp, and I was shocked to hera it is the same original song. I am genuinely shocked how bad this song is. Nothing can ever be worst than this song, even not Andy Hello. Literally nobody.

Do you all agree this is the most shamefully bad song of Prince?

It's gotta be.

I quite like it. Always have. It's rare we hear any Prince humour these days. It's also got a good little melody and a stripped down feel.

It's even not the lyrics, but the auto tune, and it is the worst echoed version ever imaginable, and what's that woop the woop all about? I don't think even a wanna be band would dare to post such a crap on their myspace.

He was really taking the piss with that shit. I guess it was free with the newspaper?!

I think if you put this song on a CD along with Wedding Feast, Purple & Gold, Hypno Paradise, Graffitti Bridge & All the Midnights In the World, I'm pretty sure the United Nations would be kicking your door down in search of WMD's. Horrible.

Batdance? Ok not up with Prince's best but the guitar solo alone in that song would eat up the freak that is Everybody Loves me and shit it out sideways without a fucking grimace.

I really like it, there's many worse that's for sure. It's fun, not every song has to be about him boning someone.

I'm going to be a Belieber ffs.
Now where's my f**king tea?

It's just your typical boring and somewhat embarrassing (especially towards the end) Prince song.. far from his worst.

He released three much worse songs that year alone...

Laydown

Rich Friends

Purple & Gold [though I don't even count this as a song]

Walk in Sand? Absolutely love this song. Your list seems very harsh. I really like 'Everybody Loves Me', a playful, kid-like, musical number. Trust me; go with it & it'll keep you young.

Its so obvious what his worst song is - 'We March'; I love TGE, but it can't be a classic like everyone thinks it is, not with this inclusion.

Batdance isn't even a song, it a musical skit. And the retarded film dialogue shoved into it at innaproptiate times make it a pretty crappy skit.

I like it for personal reasons, not because I think it's the best sounding song ever, because it's not.

'Retarded'? Honestly, can't you damn this song using other words please. Why do some here get careful and precious when talking about certain races, cultures, and backgrounds, but its okay to be derogatory about people with special needs i.e. the most vulnerable in society.

I don't understand all the hate for Jughead. When that album came out, it was not the best song on the album, but compared to what he released later, this is even not the worst song. As far as I remember I didn't use to skip that one on the album often.

These days, I haven't even listened to some of his newer stuff more than once, if at all that is.

You're not giving his new material much of a chance, maybe if you listened to it more often you would find that you enjoy at least some of it?

I am listening to it now, and granted..when I first heard it.. ill I could not understand, how he could release someone as exceptional as Prince could reduce himself to utter nonsense! Haha

BUT now, it's just the lyrics that makes it a bit cringe worthy for me. THIS sounds like Prince in the 80's though. Hahaha..Imagine this in the early 80's with a different title and plain vocals. "Everybody loved her" Haha idk..

- Life O' The Party is far WORST than THIS

- There'll Never B Another Like Me is far WORST than THIS

- Everyday Is A Winding Road is far WORST than THIS

- Baby Knows is far WORST than THIS

- Purple & Gold IS FAR WORST than THIS...

We all have our opinions, but I wouldn't personally call "Everybody Loves Me" his complete worst song. It does sound as if someone is copying him though. Haha. BUT I know where you are coming from, cause I felt the same way for a while.

The vocal effects and the lyrics are really bad. BUT the backing instrumentals are the closest to the 'MPLSound' in while. That is what keeps playing in my head. It's a strong instrumental jam! It should have been on 'MPLSOUND'. 20Ten should have closed with Laydown.

I like it alot, Purple & Gold is the worst just one listen ever!!!!! New Orleans Saints should have included Prince in the "Bounties Scandal" for that song & it also cost the Vikes a trip to the big dance...
