Ok, ok, I'm holding a gun to your head...

...and forcing you to pick ONE and only ONE Prince song as your favorite. No namby-pamby, I-can't-make-up-my-mind lists, but ONE song. What would it be? Mine is "How Come U Don't Call Me Anymore". As a piano player, I love just him and the simple instrument. The bridge build-up gives me chills!

No-one else could understand you, you're too complex. They say nothing's perfect, but they don't know you...

It's a really hard question to answer but if I had to I would go with 'The Beautiful Ones'.

.

It's a song I never tire of listening to and I love the passion with which Prince delivers it.

Interesting pick! That's in my "Best Of" playlist.

When You Were Mine. Always has been, always will be.

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

Rasberry Beret the extended version. Love the arrangement, beat. The video is my fav of his also. But Little Red Corvette comes in a very close second. 1a/1b for me.

Especially considering Jonathan Melvoin wrote nearly the entire song (despite the multiple names credited).

When Doves Cry.

That intro solo, that drum track, those vocals, that ending. For me, the definitive Prince song!

Me too! The first time I ever heard this song I was in love with it. So unique, just like Prince.

Let's Work. More specifically, the extended version of it. The 14 minute Computer Blue is a close second but Let's Work does it for me every time. If I hear even a single second of it, I'm singing the song non stop for the rest of the day.
