For 75 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

77 Bleeker Street which is the B side to Mia Bocca by Jill Jones. God knows why it wasn't on her album.

Were B- sides usually songs didn't appear on albums? I recall it was the only reason a purchased Prince 45's back in the day.

Might be the winner, obviously we are all bias here.
I didn't realise it was a b-side, it's as well known as any of his biggest songs.

"How Come You Dont Call Me Anymore" would be another greatest b-side

The word "B-Side" automatically sends my brain to Janet's "And On & On".

.

Growing up my favorite b-side was "Feel U Up" on the Partyman single lol Tbh I have always been more of a remix hound.

if it was just a dream, call me a dreamer 2
