One Prince song you really hate

Ok, yeah maybe "hate" is a strong word, but really honestly, there must be at least one song that you didn't like on first listen and that despite many attempts you still don't like now, and that you are quite sure that you will never like at all.

Mine is Ronnie Talk to Russia. Never liked it, never will. I tried it again tonight, and just no. I couldn't even make it past the 30 seconds. I think it's awful.

It's probably sacrilege to say this but I really can't stand Cream. And boy did he play that a lot in concert.

I'll agree with: Purple & Gold, Baltimore & Diamonds And Pearls and I'll add The Arms Of Orion, Betcha By Golly Wow, Lolita, Everybody Loves Me, Whitecaps, Tictactoe.

I might drop the last two and consider them more like protege songs but, I really, really dislike them, so, there ya go! wink

We were HERE, where were you?

4 those that knew the number and didn't call... fk all y'all!

Purple Rain (I just grew tired of it over the years, it's a beautiful song but especially now since he's gone, I wish people would find another song of his to cover.)

Tamborine.

My daughter and I both reached to change the tune.

PLUS it's one of his rare misspellings...unless I'm missing something. TAMBOURINE, dammit!

But I LOVE Cream.

pout D&P and Cream? I love those! disbelief

hmm, will think about this. some songs I thought I didn't like, I've found new appreciation for. I know there is one or two that I tend to skip whenever they come on, will figure out which those are and chime in razz cool

Dance where y'are, just groove y'all.

The Arms Of Orion

Jughead

Right The Wrong

Cybersingle

One Song

Wedding Feast

Purple & Gold

Two thirds of Emancipation

Most of New Power Soul

Half of Rave

A fair amount of NPGMC songs

etc.



There's quite a lot if I'm brutally honest about it. That reads as bad, but i think it still only comes to 5% songs i dislike. The brilliant and good far outweighs what i consider to be bad. They're songs, they don't hurt me if i listen to them, but i won't go out of my way to put them on again.

I can't understand why certain songs languish in the vault vs some released songs. he was a strange one that Prince. lol

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

I know, and that's why I've picked it, because I know there are so many who enjoy that song. But despite seeing that fun side of it, musically, I cannot like it. It just brushes my eardrums the wrong way.

Co-sign - those were great songs with well-done videos. I like them both quite a bit.

Mine would have to be Graffiti Bridge. And I wouldn't say HATE, but I never could get into it. Skip.

I'll be brave and also say 'Slow Love'. Always skipped it on the album and the SOTT movie. It's certainly not in the same class as the achingly beautiful, audio boner that is 'Adore'.

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

Yeah, I can't "hate" any of his songs, but..."Everyday Is A Winding Road (Cover)" drives me very close to that sentiment. "Fallinlove2nite" as well.
