Erotic City

How come I don't see much love for Erotic City? I find it to be a very good B-side. Maybe it's because I love the old, perverted, doesn't give a damn what he sings Prince, but I really enjoy Erotic City. I would actually even go as far as to say that it's quite underrated -- what are you opinions on this song?

(Sorry if this thread has been posted before, but I went as far back as I could and didn't see one.)

"I never want to stop singing this song!" Prince in Montreal, 12/2/11, just before performing Purple Rain

I've been to somewhere between 20-30 shows and he's never performed that song at any of them. I wouldn't say that it's "underrated" at all! It still gets a lot of radio play in my area. I think people would loose their mind if he performed(s) it!! It just may not bee his thing anymore to play those type of songs, although, I read he's recently performed "Head" at an aftershow!

One of my all time favorite songs by anyone.

He did play a bit of it in 2007 at one of the London shows I was at. We all freaked!!

If prince.org were to be made idiot proof, someone would just invent a better idiot.

This song has ALWAYS gotten praise and love here on the org. Always. 17 Days is another one as well.

lol NurseV is my girl, but its funny no matter what song is discussed she pops in and say "I've never heard that one:-( " It cracks me up. She probably has heard Erotic City though, I think Squirrelgrease is playing
