Prince could record himself taking a shit and it would be better then 99% of the stuff out there. Prince's only competition is himself. wink

Supa, usually I am entertained by some of your posts, but this time, you MUST put the pipe down. lol Arms of Orion is an interesting ballad to say the least. We Gets Up doesn't have the most obvious subject matter to it, but We March definitely does. If you cannot see the relevance of the song, it doesn't make it a bad song at all. IMO, We March is a very positive song that doesn't appeal nor apply to everyone. Still funky, no doubt.

OK Ice, for the first time I'm willing to throw blows with you, and not the kind that feels good!

When the lights go Down has to be for me one of his best! I'll never get over it.

And J2J, come on. I love the way Prince worked 3 different songs into 1 and you can't even tell me that you don't dig the evil funk in the last 3rd of the song..."up the stairs to my lovely room"...

I'll agree with Moonbeam on Temptation and half of NPS, but Around The World In A Day is excellent. How could you pick that???

And you have no ears. That is hands down on of the most brilliant pieces he ever wrote. It's so haunting and the vocal performance is stunning. You obviously have never been that lonely.

It does absolutely nothing for me. I guess I can't say that it is a bad song, per se, but it is certainly my least favorite song recorded by the Revolution.

U gotta Freakin' kiddin'!!!

Ice Nine I don't think I can ever respect your judgement:
When the Lights Go Down
Willing and Able
Da, da, da
319

Are all classic tunes!!!
so u don't like Jazz (WTLGD)
Gospel (WAA)
Rap (da,da,da)
or PrinceFunk (319)

out of all the sonfgs u listed only the following are poopy:
Strange But True
Jughead
We Gets Up

but he has done a lot worse:
Tangerine
Silly Game
Graffiti Bridge
Can't stop
My Little Pill
The same December
I rock therefore I am
I will
Dig u better dead
Blue Light (stay away from the Reggae!!!)
Arrogance
New World
Human Body
Mr Happy

most of the Rainbow Children lp
most of the Year 1 NPG downloads

hes almost done as many poopers and stars

I personally find that to be a truly awful song.
I don't think it has a single redeeming feature. Absolutely awful

Bad songs are all that Prince has come up with of late. I would like to know if it's possible for him to come up with a good one?

Persian, every one of the songs you have mentioned could be disputed. Even Grafitti Bridge, which I always swore I'd hate, I listened to recently and loved it.

Prince's music has an amazing tendency to divide people. I suspect that it is all good to somebody. He makes music which appeals to people's individual natures and so by definition is going to divide opinions.

And the Rainbow Children is crap? Oh Lord, how I disagree!
