Prince's best holy tracks

I'm not really a fan of his holy tracks however there are a few gems like the cross, god and the everlasting now that I cant help but like the solo in the latter is a real high point.

I'm just like everybody else I need love.....and water.

The Love We Make

Love Thy Will be Done

"Eye No" is probably my first choice. It is sanctified. Others include "The Cross," "I Would Die 4 U," "4 The Tears In Your Eyes" and "God."

A lot of folks dig the religious themes in The Rainbow Children.

Still others have an apocalyptic tone, like "1999" ("u can't run from revelation") and "Let's Go Crazy," or deal with sin and struggle, like "Temptation."

The Lyrics stand alone in all his Holy Tracks/songs

They are like a Prayer ,

a meditation and an extremely introspective moment

all at once...

I mean...this is just amazing



I had a dream last night
That I was flying for the first time
And in the dream I could pilot my flight
With the thoughts in my mind

Since there wasn't any up or down
Everybody was all around
When we sang, we all sang together
Oh, what a beautiful sound

Ooh, ooh, sha la la la la
This is the future soul song
Ooh, ooh, sha la la la la
This is the future soul song

I had a dream last night
That I was singing and the sound of my voice
Seemed to come from every mountain top
Like it had no choice

And when my voice rose, so did the sun
When the trees sang the harmony as one
Every living soul sang the most beautiful
Melody ever sung

Ooh, ooh, sha la la la la
This is the future soul song
Ooh, ooh, sha la la la la
This is the future soul song

Before the war the only words and language said
Let there be light
Those that can see it are the ones who believe it
And put up no fight

And in the absence of fear and control
Is the sound of the surrendering soul
Louder than the dogmatic persecution
I sing it like you got that right

Ooh, ooh, sha la la la la
This is the future soul song
Ooh, ooh, sha la la la la
This is the future soul song

Ooh, ooh, sha la la la la
Ooh, ooh, sha la la la la
This is the future soul song

Same December is an amazing track. The release at the end and the choir.

Not a holy song but I certainly feel a spiritual ethereal sensation when listening to Power Fantastic. Prince songs about sexuality often have a spiritual overtone like sex is a gift from God (which if you believe it has to be.

Alexa De Paris and many other instrumentals have a holy commune with God sensibility at least to my mind and imagination.

Prince, Stevie and Megadeth (*Dave Mustaine) took me from a place that i felt where i ridiculed the institution of the church (pre teen) although quietly; to a state where i reflected on how deeeply these teachings made an impact on all those men.

It made me pause and reflect on the teachings of JC and what they meant indirectly. I gained a respect for it that i had never had, when things that were old and irrelevant were forced down my throat 3 hours a week.

I realized how much people ARE followers when speaking of my newfound appreciation and finding out that half the people going didn't know wtf was being communicated.

Those peeps and anybody that have foremost thanks to God (*to which i reacted skeptically) are an important part of who I've become.


Anyways. Had to share that.


FAVORITE "praise" (*as they're called now) songs by P

SAVIOUR [eye no this one is SECULAR but he describes her as a faith; i don't it for being one of my favorite songs he's ever done] (*I never knew ppl hated that album until i joined P.ORG)
The Same December (describes Prince's reverence but suggestion that he wasn't entirely dogmatic...like damn near every other "spiritual" he did)
1+1+1=3 (approaching dogmatism after riding a fine line for years)
THe Work
The Ladder (*describes the ever reaching and reflective soul entirely)
The Greatest Romance Ever Sold
Everywhere
7 (dude got me critically/cryptically investigating where I'd heard all that - the book of Revelations)
Eye would die 4 U (messianic song)
Dolphin (*self identification with the ideals of love; spiritual love, how many songs? How many tongues? How many lives is it going to take to get people to love one another?) - 2nd favorite of such.

and if we listed every song where prince snuck in a gospel chord subversively, anyone's list would quadruple.

My personal favs are The Ladder, The Grand Progression, Still Would Stand All Time, Holy River, and all the others you guys have mentioned. As well as the songs he wrote on that Deliverance EP that Ian Boxhill released this year

Holy Track in Hiding smile

Look outside Ur window
Tell me now what you c
Coming up the mountain
4 a new philosophy
Every single color
Every race and ever creed
Lookin' 4 the truth ya'll
That's gonna set somebody free

Get on the boat
Get on the boat, people
Get on the boat now
We got room 4 a hundred more
Get on the boat
Get on the boat, people
Get on the boat now
We got room 4 a hundred more

All across the nation
People doing what they can
2 avoid the tribulation
That will b great throughout the land
Everything in darkness
Must come out in2 the light
When we love each other
That's the only way that's gonna be right

Get on the boat
Get on the boat, people
Get on the boat now
We got room 4 a hundred more
Get on the boat
Get on the boat, people
Get on the boat now
We got room 4 a hundred more
Good god!
Say it again

Bridge!
We were meant 2 live 2gether
Underneath the sun
Eye can't think of nothing better
Don't you wanna come?
Get on the boat

Nevermind what time it is
The party's just begun
No te alejes de este momento de inspiracion
You can let Ur hair down
Let the music move Ur feet
Panamama bring the drama
Dancin' 2 the beat
Maceo!

What's the harm in listening 2 the hopeful words we say
If it moves Ur heart you know you better get in without delay

Get on the boat
Get on the boat, people
Get on the boat now
We got room 4 a hundred more

Dance to the beat... Ray, Ray, Ray
Leadline- horns, hit me now

Get on the boat
Get on the boat, people
Get on the boat now
We got room 4 a hundred more
Get on the boat
Get on the boat, people
Get on the boat now
We got room 4 a hundred more

We were meant 2 live 2gether
Underneath the sun
Eye can't think of nothing better
Don't you wanna come?
Get on the boat

Ooh Yea

Get on the boat
Get on the boat, people
Get on the boat now
We got room 4 a hundred more
Get on the boat
Get on the boat, people
Get on the boat now
We got room 4 a hundred more

Every color, every creed
C'mon c'mon
Come with me
Hallellujiah!

Get on the boat
Get on the boat, people
Get on the boat now

Get on the boat
Get on the boat, people
Get on the boat now
We got room 4 a hundred more

Good lord
Lead line, lead line

Can't stand it
Keep it going, keep it going
