One Nite Alone; More examples of Prince talking thru song like Here On Earth Pls

Last time I asked for more examples of Prince's vocal range...which has been awesome btw - and still want more so feel free to include those examples if you have some!

Please don't throw brick at me smile Since April until now, I have been acquiring albums I haven't yet heard or reacquiring the ones I've purchased twice and have been robbed twice, so still rebuilding that too disbelief. Seems I've also started collecting sealed CDs too ? lol started only because I purchased a handful of CDs that are brand new (woot!) and can't seem to bring myself to OPEN THEM!!?? Which is agonizing because I want to OPEN THEM but just can't do it. They will be treasured in their flawless conditions and I have subsequently begun purchasing the digital versions in lieu of that issue.

.

ANYWAY - clearly WAY off topic there. err

.

I am listening to One Nite Alone for the first time. omg bow love2 I knew it was going to sting cry but didn't imagine how extra intimate not only the sound but the lyrics feel. I can't seem to stop listening to Here On Earth. Just listening to him...talking through the song is...incredible! Comforting even, even while emotional and thought-provoking. whew

.

Could you suggest others like this to listen to, where Prince is primarily talking through the song (like One Song).

.

Thanks in advance! grouphug

I'd like to reply, but I ain't reading around all those emojis.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

Dreamin' About U (from Emancipation)
Style (from Emancipation)
Papa (from Come)
Movie Star (from Crystal Ball)
What's My Name (from Crystal Ball)
Chapter and Verse (not commercially released)

There are also entirely-spoken segues, the narration on The Rainbow Children and songs which could be considered rap, such as "Strange but True". I don't know if any of that is what you are looking for, so I won't list all of those.

Dreamin' About U and the long spoken intro to One Song are the two that jumped to my mind.

Just somewhere in the middle,
Not too good and not too bad.
