Ooo I gotta good one. A Case Of You. Oh nevermind, you said no falsetto. Has she seen Purple Rain?

I asked Prince what he was planning to do. He told me , I'm going to look for the ladder. I asked him what that meant. All he said was, sometimes it snows in April. - book D.M.S.R.

My son is not a fan, but he really understands the talent. He likes the Brit Awards performance, the rock n roll hall of fame performance and the version of Reflections with Wendy Melvoin. All beautiful and not a lot of falsetto or screaming smile

To be fair she has not heard many Prince songs. She doesn't like his screams (e.g in Kiss) or his falsetto.

So can anyone here recommend some Prince songs that really show of his vocals/singing voice that doesn't have the above. She probably prefers old school singing as one of her favourite artists is Lionel Richie lol

Your must take your gf to the nearest ER. Because if she doesn't get the scream or the helium voice, you have something wrong with her. razz razz razz razz razz

Yeah, I don't see a way home from this. She loves Lionel Richie, but hates Prince. Some people just have bad taste. It's kind of charming. Focus on all her other amazing attributes, because I don't think you can save her.

Lionel Richie and Prince are apples to oranges. Each has a distinct sound and they can't be compared.

Prince has one of the sexiest voices in God's history known to men! Singing or talking

What's just as bad is people who say his guitar playing is just average and that they could find some 14 year old girl on YouTube who could smoke his butt. Um no.
Paisley Park is in your heart

Prince usually didn't try to sing "pretty" as in super clean, silky smooth. He did what felt added the right texture for the song. Also, even though he was a great singer, other singers had a fuller voice in within their limited vocal range. Prince compensated with superb mic technique, amazing control, emotion and ability to add different textures like an instrument with effect pedals. Alexander O'neal on the other hand, was a VOICE. But Morris had a few things similar to Prince that would win him The Time, and that's his stage persona and attitude. He didn't even need the vocal control Prince had.

You probably shouldn't marry your girlfriend if she thinks Prince isn't a good singer. lol

I thought I'd offer maybe some real advise..I've used Motherless Child live to change minds it is deep and has a killer guitar solo .Judas Smiles and My Medallion both from Chocolate Invasion. Judas smiles is a complex journey musically and demonstrates his range..My medallion is a funny story about a women who plays a joke on him.. The my guitar weeps solo from the induction into the Rock and Roll museum that blows everyone away is unforgettable..if she isn't hooked by then..there may be no hope and you'll just have to come here to share your Prince love.

..Hello, who is it?
Yes, this is a prettyman, Princey!

Not sure a guitar solo will convince her that he's a good singer. wink

In my experience, people who don't like Prince WANT to not like Prince.

Same with the movie 'Titanic'. lol

I know a few people who just find his falsetto a bit annoying. Something like Starfish & Coffee might work, melodic and sweet

I can get some people don't dig Prince, but to say he can't sing is laughable. Just as bad as people saying MJ can't dance. You have to laugh really lol
