Definitive Prince Song

What does everyone hink the definitive prince song is. I think that it is "If i was ur Girlfriend". It has many elements that make a great prince song. It is experimental, both in its recording technique as well as its subject. It has an amazing vocal, also when performed live. It is a song that no other artist would do.
What would be the defining 0(+> song?
I think it has to be "Days O Wild"

I'm confused? Which is it? "If I Was Your Girlfriend" or "DayO Wild"?
As far as IIWYGF, TLC recorded it. Didn't they?

Oh I get it, the prince era. It's all the same to me. smile(+>

The definative Prince song?
"When Doves Cry"
reason?
No one before 84 has ever recorded anything like it & it has all the elements Prince is famous for.

A blistering guitar solo.
Drum machine mixed with real drum sounds.
Keyboard riff.
No bass guitar.
Harmony & falsetto vocals.
Did I say blistering guitar solo? smile
