Lets Discuss Prince's worst song

I think its safe to say that "Purple & Gold" is the worst Prince song ever.Out of hundreds of his songs I've heard,I think there are maybe 5 songs that I didn't like.That shows how much I love his music .What were your thoughts when you first heard "Purple & Gold"? Did u think Prince had lost his touch? I've heard some say that Prince made this song as a joke but I'm not sure.

The Vikings still have it on their website.

As a sports "hymn", it's quite good.

It's EXACTLY what it should be, IMO. It's not a rock, R&B or anything else.

It's like a school anthem.

so why not enjoying the hundreds of prince songs u like instead of searching desperately 4 something 2 criticize? wouldn't that be a better use of time? just a thought ... innocent

another little thought: just because u don't like it ... doesn't mean it has 2 be bad. it just means: u don't like it.

I think Purple & Gold is what it was meant to be . . . a fight song.

His worst songs are anything with Tony M on it, especially Dadd Pop, Push, etc. I saw the Call the Law video the other day and it was like a SNL skit.

That album has Arms of Orion on it! I mean come on! The crazy badass harmony vocals when he says "Everytime you do me" are a high point of that whole disc! (I like AOO too haha just saying that Lemon Crush is much better than that song imo)

I love a good "opinion" thread! One thing I love about it is, there is no right or wrong answer, it's simply an opinion.

In my humble opinion, I found myself listening to an album once, and then placing it lovingly on the shelf with the rest of my collecion. However, I would always go back and revisit it, and it turns out, Prince was introducing me to a different style of music. He was expanding my horizons without even knowing it. Now I have an appreciation for jazz music (for example) thanks to PRINCE.

Purple & Gold would be a track I would skip, not a fan of that one. However, I might need to go back and listen to it, perhaps I can expand my mind again.

Prince could have been a good lil' slot receiver, no? Quick off the line, sure-handed. Runs good routes. Of course being 120 pounds would have resulted in probably a short career.

Pope is great! A bit silly but great nonetheless. Purple & Gold achieves what it sets out to do so I don't think it's his worst.

His worst is something so plastic and forgettable off MPLsound or Musicology that I don't even remember it exists.

Although Graffiti Bridge could give them a run for their money alright neutral

If its a football anthem he was going for,he should've made a song that was upbeat and rock like "let's go crazy" or "endorphinmachine". I can't imagine the vikings running out to the field with " purple and gold" blasting f rom the stadium speakers at all

Pope on the Hits is... just a bit bland and light.

Pope live at the BBC in 199(3?) was an absolutely epic bass-fest. Like a whole other, proper song. Does anyone know if that one is based on another, much better song with the Pope lyrics over the top, or whether he played it like that on other occasions? I see princevault has a listing for 'The Mad Pope' that sound like this may have been worked on in the studio. Any intel on that?:

As much as I hate to admit it, it's true.

TAMBOURINE is the song that grates on my ears and nerves when it plays out of nowhere.

confused

Now it's playing in my head...Gah!

That's certainly what people were expecting but instead he gave them an anthem that sounded like something from 100 years ago. Do you interrupt the National Anthem when it's playing to complain that it doesn't sound like Endorphinmachine? It was an utterly bizarre move but hey, since when did he ever do as expected.
