Interesting that so many good songs are so low on the list. Perhaps a testament to how many good songs he has. Biggest surprise to me is how low Revelation was based on how much love the song has received here and my own view that it is one of his top recent classics.

I know I rated "Extraordinary" at least a 9. That song is killer.

Hey Moonbean:

Great job. I am assuming there were some songs lower ranked than the ones listed in this first release of the results. Do you plan to start at this rating level to eventually the very top? If so, it might also be interesting to see the bottom 20 (poor ole Purple and Gold biggrin ).

I decided to go with the top 365 because I wanted this time to be a celebration of Prince as we near the 1-year anniversary of his passing. He has left us with so much to treasure. Yeah, there are some duds in his discography, but it doesn't feel right to use the efforts of the participants to pile on in that way.

I'm counting down from 365 to 1. I'll probably get to the top 25 by the end of next week.

Patience my friend, Patienza in Maltese.

.

I am actually adding these places to the list and finding it hard given songs arelisted under different entities and periods.

.

I love the work done and can't thank Moonbeam enough for it.

.

I hope he gives rankings under 365 at the end, but I assume of the 1423 songs, at least 200 or 300 will have no ratings. Songs like Mink Kitty Kat. lol

Hey Moonbean:

Great job. I am assuming there were some songs lower ranked than the ones listed in this first release of the results. Do you plan to start at this rating level to eventually the very top? If so, it might also be interesting to see the bottom 20 (poor ole Purple and Gold biggrin ).


I decided to go with the top 365 because I wanted this time to be a celebration of Prince as we near the 1-year anniversary of his passing. He has left us with so much to treasure. Yeah, there are some duds in his discography, but it doesn't feel right to use the efforts of the participants to pile on in that way.

I gotcha! I appreciate your approach.

The scoring margins are really thin, but I think "Shy," "1+1+1=3," and "I Like It There" are three of his very best songs Post-Lovesexy. I am shocked that the others I highlighted were ranked lower than several of Prince's lesser songs in that same grouping.

My results of the 165 songs released so far.

.

Songs I gave a 10, that scored between 201 and 365

.

A Place in Heaven

Adonis and Bathsheba

Modernaire

The Grand Progression

All Day, All night (363rd place - a scandal!)

Like a Prayer - although I dispute if this is a Prince song at all.

Thunder

Damn U - Great song and I feel 203 is a bit low

Black Muse

Revelation

Sexy Dancer

La, La, La, He, He, Hee

Sister Fate

She gave her angels

Strays of the World

The Holy River

Get It Up

The Stick

The Walk

.

Songs I gave 9.5 or 9 to, that also scored between 201 and 365

.

Wild and Loose

Neon Telephone

Jerk Out

Chocolate

Beautiful Strange

Right back here in my arms

Eye can't make u love me

Hide the Bone

I like it here

Noon Rendezvous

Free Urself

F.U.N.K.

Hardrocklover

The one u wanna c

Dance On

Crimson and Clover

Stare

Screwdriver

Groovy Potential

Don't Talk 2 Strangers

Satisfied

Fury

Free

4 tears in your eyes

Sexual Suicide

Temtation

The Good Life

Count the Days

The Line

.

So far quite a lot of the big album tracks off the golden era have not shown up, only less good ones like Annie Christian (Good but not great) and the songs which are genuine fillers that would have scored under 365. most of the songs so far are from later albums like Hit n Runs, Art Official age and Chaos and Disorder.

.

Surprisingly many of the songs rated so far got lower marks on my list, some like 3 or 4 and a few around 6. But I am assuming many of my 9s and 10s like everyone else's will be in the top 200 trax. 2 or 3 songs I have not heard or rated.

It is clear that the songs that haven't been heard/rated by many respondents definitely lower the ranking down considerably even though they have a good average among the people who rated them. It looks like none of his songs in the past 10 years can do as well as other songs because they aren't rated by the full group. This is also true for the boots (Witness 4 the Prosecution had a standout average rating of 8.44 but still lingers in this batch due to only 17 people rated it and the club downloads.

    Both of these are top 100 at least!

  • 177. Another Lonely Christmas (1985): 32 votes, 7.75 average, 9.60 points

Both of these should be a little higher.

  • 169. Nothing Compares 2 U (1985): 30 votes, 7.83 average, 9.73 points


Not saying I disagree, just shocked that one of his most iconic songs is this

low. This was one of probably the 5 most referenced songs in the weeks after

his death.

  • 156. And God Created Woman (1992): 32 votes, 7.89 average, 10.12 points


A top 20 song for me, but I can see how it lands here.


Generally, most of the songs in this batch are ranked pretty much around where I'd have them.

Yes I noticed, I entered the score in the wrong line, I am entering results in on the sheet, as a reference point, and you will notice, All day all night is the line above, Baby You're a trip.

.

Correected it now, seeing some 1st rate songs appear in high 100s and low 200s, so are worried Top 50 is going to be tracks off Purple Rain and all his Top 10 hits added by the neophyte fans.

All Day, All night (363rd place - a scandal!)





This one hasn't appeared yet. wink "Baby, You're a Trip" came in at 363, which I agree is way too low.



Yes I noticed, I entered the score in the wrong line, I am entering results in on the sheet, as a reference point, and you will notice, All day all night is the line above, Baby You're a trip.


.


Correected it now, seeing some 1st rate songs appear in high 100s and low 200s, so are worried Top 50 is going to be tracks off Purple Rain and all his Top 10 hits added by the neophyte fans.



I think the top 50 looks better than you might expect. ;)

I agree that many first-rate songs have already placed, but I'm a weirdo who thinks a song like "Free Urself" or "Now" is first-rate!
