Maybe something Gold era like Gold or Endorphinmachine?

Could with an extra ballad. Perhaps One Kiss at a Time or The Breakdown.

And I'd something that shows his versatility like Don't Play Me.

(As you can see, I'm trying to get you add to add some later period stuff).

Most new fans I have met seem to like the newer albums more than the old ones.I know that sounds crazy but newbies really like songs from art official age,HitNRun,and 3121 more than stuff from sign of the times and dirty mind.So I would add these songs
Black sweat
Love
The Word
Funknroll
This could be us
Fall in Love 2night
Thousand hugs and kisses
The breakdown
Another Love

Great list! I would add something from The Rainbow Children, perhaps the title track or "Muse to the Pharoah."

music You've got some great music on that playlist! I'd throw in some alternate versions sometimes, though.

Like...

10. Little Red Corvette - I'd use Ultimate Prince disc 2 version.

11. Joy In Repetition - I'd use One Night Alone (Live Disc 3) version.

19. Pop Life - I'd use Ultimate Prince disc 2 version.

26. I Could Never Take The Place - I'd use the SOTT version, not the shortened The Hits, B-Sides version.

And it's NEVER a bad idea to stick Pink Cashmere in the playlist somewhere!

Honorable mention - Peach [Extended Jam] One Night Alone (Live Disc 3). music I dare you not to groove! Renato is not BSn on those keys!!! music

Muse to the Pharoah or Mellow. (I prefer the One Night Alone Versions)

Surely these are far from the strongest tracks on TRC. It's the last 4 (She Loves Me 4 Me / Family Name / The Everlasting Now / Last December) that make the album.

Yes, I'd be adding more post 80's stuff. I know we'd all have different lists and it's near impossible to pick 32 tracks but the likes of below are timeless classics IMO:

.

And God Created Woman

Shhh

Dolphin

The Love We Make

Somewhere Here On Earth

Dance 4 Me

Time

Revelation

Great job.Those playlists should guarantee a new Prince fan.
I would put the art official age version of "funknroll" instead if the plectrum version.That last minute on the art official age version is really exciting to hear.Which version do you like better?
Also,are these the full versions or the single edits?

I personally enjoy the Plectrumelectrum version more than Art Official Age version; however, those last two minutes of the AOA version have some incredible guitar work.
