"Well it may not be the Grand Progression, but it sho is funky!" - F.U.N.K.

Prince was on here low-key and I was bitching about something (close to nothing, lol) and he asked what unreleased song I thought was his greatest and I said The Grand Progression and that he always held back the great tunes and released the weak ones. He dipped and a few hours later (or maybe a day or two, can't recall at the moment), dropped F.U.N.K. you know just casually referencing a decades old outtake for no particular reason in his then latest release. lol

I thought I remembered there was some specific person being pointed at.

Yep that's true as well.

eek ... biggrin

Which in some ways, conforts me in thinking stuff like "The Grand Progression" was part of a very intimate journal. I can't read this.

pFunk was really something. Prince slapping our asses for caring of his work so much.
"— I love ya, don't ya miss with me no mo'! " biggrin

The latin coda is so sweet.

I am definitely late to The Grand Progression but it was definitely worth the wait. There is such a beaurtiful yet haunting feel to the song that seeps into my soul. Only Prince does this to me! A classic bootleg if you ask me.

It's a great song, but I just can't listen to it. Something about the way he sings it is just unsettling. Maybe it's the sincerity of it all. Who knows.

Thanks for this. I went to Youtube and heard it for the first time. It's a good song. I was also able to finally hear Prince's version of Love Thy Will Be Done for the first time, which for me is more touching than The Grand Progression. Finally, I have heard his version. Life is complete! I'm happy!
