Your personal 1 Album (13 Songs Max) configuration of Emancipation

If Emancipation was one album with no fillers, what the tracklist would be like?

My 13:
Right Back Here In My Arms

Get Yo Groove On
I Can't Make U Love Me
One Kiss At A Time
Dreamin' About U
Joint 2 Joint
Let's Have A Baby
Saviour
Friend, Lover, Sister, Mother/Wife
New World
The Human Body
Sleep Around
The Love We Make

On the Japanese release, there's the necessary bonus track:
Somebody's Somebody (Live Studio Mix)

I would also rename the record "Saviour" -- one of Prince's best songs post-Lovesexy era.

Ok, I'll give this a go

1) Jam Of The Year
2) Get Yo' Groove On
3) Somebody's Somebody
4) White Mansion
5) Sex In The Summer
6) The Holy River
7) Sleep Around
8) My Computer
9) One of Us
10) The Love We Make

I don't know how well or bad this goes together as a playlist, that's just what I thought of off the top of my head

I'll just say it now. NO ONE will pick the same 13 songs. That is the greatness of Prince for you.

Same could be accomplished with Lotusflower/Mplsound, Crystal Ball, Lovesexy/The Black Album...

I dislike the sound (producion) do this album so much that I find it hard to listen to most of the songs. There are some great tracks, but even them sound largely lifeless... I remember back at in the day playing Damened if I Do to a friend and him asking me if Prince was trying to sound like the Spice Girls...
Anyway, my tracklist:
1. Jam of the Year
2. Right Back Here in My Arms
3. Somebody's Somebody
4. In This Bed I Scream
5. Dreamin' About U
6. Joint 2 Joint
7. The Holy River
8. New World
9. Face Down
10. Style (edited to about three minutes)
11. Sleep Around
12. My Computer
13. The Love We Make

Nobody has Courtin' Time on their lists? Seriously? That's like the best song on the whole album (bar Face Down).

One of my favourites, I recently compiled a Best-Of Emancipation and it ran to 19 tracks of no filler goodness. A very good triple, but a dynamite double. Any album with the likes of My Computer, Slave, Courting Time, In this Bed, Dreaming About You, The Love we Make..is something special indeed.

For the life of me I can't find it, but I had once whilttled a track list of this down to either 1 or 2 disks, full up, and the strongest of songs. But 13 max...let's do this (in no particular order):

  1. The Love We Make
  2. Friend, Love, Sister, Mother/Wife
  3. Damned If I Do
  4. My Computer
  5. In This Bed I Scream
  6. Somebody's Somebody (live studio version)
  7. Saviour
  8. Sleep Around (but edited down a bit)
  9. Soul Sanctuary
  10. One Kiss At A Time (a highly under-valued ballad)
  11. Courtin' Time
  12. Right Back Here In My Arms
  13. Emale



This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

On vinyl... Side 1: "The Holy River". Side 2: "Slave". A 7" single. The only two tracks I like on "Emancipation". His most disappointing album for me.
