Mmmm...

Fave has to be a three-way tie between Andre Cymone's "Kelly's Eyes", Sheila E.'s "Glamourous Life", and The Family's "Screams of Passion". I can't choose one over the other.

...least fave would have to be virtually any song made by a singular female protegé who wasn't first and foremost a musician. Prince had a terrible habit of just throwing any old girl in front of a microphone to project his fantasies onto as long as she looked a certain way, and for me that usually ended up with results that were sonically disastrous.

I'm going to limit my single choices to the ones in which Prince was actually involved.

Fave: "Nasty Girl" - Vanity 6

Least fave: "Miss Thang" - T.C. Ellis

I strongly considered Sheena Easton's "Sugar Walls" for favorite, but "Nasty Girl" is way too funky.

Cyndi Lauper doing When You Were Mine is a favorite.

Gotta think a bit about least favorite.
