Prince's Greatest Ballad?

I'd be interested to know what you think his greatest ballad is.

Mine is circle of armour.

Adore is overrated.

So, The Beautiful Ones probably.
Scandalous is probably a good close second
Do Me, Baby is up there

Are we talking just love ballads?
Nothing Compares 2 U
.....but the rest are boring different, generic versions of the songs already mentioned

Also, The Most Beautiful Girl In The World

...but the rest range between meh and unlistenable and boring

The Beautiful Ones will always be my favorite Prince ballad.

There are many more great Prince ballads , but this one is my personal favorite.

Perfect lyrics, great instrumentation , amazing vocal delivery.

Just sheer perfection.

And all by himself.

" I´d rather be a stank ass hoe because I´m not stupid. Oh my goodness! I got more drugs! I´m always funny dude...I´m hilarious! Are we gonna smoke?"

For me my head says The Beautiful Ones

But my hot loins say Do Me Baby. That's a song so sexy that you can probably get pregnant just by listening to it.

Purple Rain is obvious, but for the rest.

1) She Gave her Angels

2) Crucial

3) Free

4) The Beautiful Ones

5) Moonbeam Levels

Apologies to Gold, Adore, Diamonds and Pearls, Breakdown, the Ladder and Arms or Orion.

Several more I'm not mentioning, too. He was a master.

If it breaks when it bends, you better not put it in.

Not a huge fan of most of the ballads because they all sound the same to me but:

Damn U

Dreamin About U

Were the first 2 I thought of. Some of the other slower numbers I like I'm not sure constitute "ballads". Like...is "Way Back Home" or "Come Back" a ballad?

When 2 R In Love comes to mind.

Only Prince can write a song that is both beautiful and a little dirty! (Well maybe a lot dirty) lol

So many greats, but if I had to pin it down, groove and lyrically, I'd have to pick one than strangely no one has picked...'The One'.

Really? I for one, think this is a the most pretentious thing He ever did, and a bad pretentious one.

Adore is the greatest song in the history of music.

Got some kind of love for you, and I don't even know your name
